Tips to Get Moving

Exercise is a celebration of what your body can do, not a punishment for what you ate. It should be challenging but more importantly, it should bring you joy and make you feel good. Experiment with different workouts until you find what works for you and your schedule.  Even a few mini workouts throughout the day are better than nothing!

  • Cardio can be whatever you enjoy, as long as it gets your heart rate up!  We love an incline walk, outdoor jog, spin class, and HIIT, but anything goes.  Be mindful of your joints and don't overdo it.

  • You know your own fitness level. Push yourself just past your typical comfort zone but not so far you're in discomfort or sore for days.
  • We recommend that you plan six workouts and one rest day each week so if/when one of your workout days hits a snag, you still have a strong week.
  • We recommend working out first thing in the morning so you are done for the day and it doesn’t get away from you. That said, fit it in where it is the most seamless for you. Yes, you may have to wake up an hour earlier, but make yourself a priority and get it done. No one ever regretted a workout

  • Each night, lay out your workout clothing, pack up your gym bag and fill your water bottle.  Put it by the door or in your car so you don’t forget things in the morning rush.
  • There is ALWAYS time, even if it’s not always easy to find it. Running up and down stairs while your kids do homework, playing a round of tennis, or walking to an appointment when you'd normally drive- there are plenty of options.
  • Working out doesn’t have to be at a gym!  There are great fitness videos online and plenty of Apps available to help you work out at home. Some of our favorite resources are-
