Will Spring Ever Come To New England?

Spring, is this season just a myth?

Summer, flies by in a blink. Fall, shows up for a couple weeks, feels like summer in the beginning, and then snows by Halloween. Winter. WINTER goes on forever and ever! For example, It’s March and April will be knocking on our door. Technically, Spring has almost arrived!

Almost warm enough to take that workout routine outside. So what does that mean for us? Well, we are still hitting the gyms and home workout routines best we can, but something is missing. That feeling you get when you can take that walk outside! The longer days, the warmer weather, the flowers and buds on the trees. Hello? Has anyone seen them? I mean, I see sand, salt and dirty roads. It is very hard to stay motivated. I mean come on, we are 3 months away from bikini season? Are you ready? (And no guys, I am not talking to you!) How do we keep it together without losing it all completely?

First idea, book a trip and head to warmer weather! If you can’t do that, then get some vitamin D the natural way! It will help believe me. Then, revamp your workout routine. It is time to change it up, and try new things to inspire you to launch into the spring/summer season.

Group classes, hire a trainer, invest in a quality treadmill, elliptical or gym for your home. Think about how you can invest in yourself, by investing in your health. That’s my motto, and the one I stick by!

So hang in there, eventually this long winter will turn to spring. Well for maybe a week, then turn to summer, but whatever the case, you will be ready for it!

This has been your “inspiration” to do so..

You are welcome!

ALERT: Shorter and Colder Days Ahead!!

Well here in the Northeast, we are fast approaching the time of year when we move the clocks BACK!

Can’t believe it is here once again, but it is!  Shorter and much colder days are ahead of us unfortunately.

I for one tend to get a little depressed during this time.  Winter seems to last 6 months in our area, and it really makes it hard to stay with a good workout routine.  Our diets even seem to suffer.  With the holidays fast approaching, it is important to stay with a healthy lifestyle.

We often talk about using that gym membership, or taking those motivational fitness classes. We have even touched upon having some back up pieces in our homes.  Treadmills, Bikes, Ellipticals, even a rowing machine for our cardio workouts are some examples. Of course, adding some free weights, weighted balls, resistance bands, benches and body balls can also make for an inexpensive, yet beneficial home gym.  All these can factor in helping our mood and keeping us on track.

It is so important to stay in a positive frame of mind.  Exercise helps keep us motivated and feeling good about ourselves!

If you have fallen off the bandwagon, time to jump back on before you lose it all!  If you need some ideas, or help with motivation towards your fitness and wellness goals, come down and visit us!  We are always here to help, inspire, and just keep you smiling!  We have the equipment you need, and the knowledge to keep you focused!

Keep Calm, and Carry your Fitness on!!
