It’s winter and it’s cold, dark and wet outside. But that doesn’t mean your workout has to fall by the wayside. In fact, you may be surprised at how AMAZING you feel after a good sweat, and how it heats you to your core! The gym is of course an option for your winter workouts, but that can get real old, real fast. So what else can you do to keep things fun and lively?
As a spinning instructor and meditator, I’m often asked how I reconcile the two. After all, meditation is all about stillness and silence, and if you’ve been to my spinning class, you know it’s all about moving and pushing yourself past your boundaries. Meditation is peaceful and exercise is…not.
It’s summer, and we’re getting ready to step into our bikini bodies and have fun doing it. No one wants to do a workout they don’t enjoy, right? It’s been proven that by doing exercise you enjoy, you will be more inclined to stick to it to achieve your own personal goals, and we couldn’t agree more. Summertime opens the door to so many more exercise opportunities, and we can’t wait to dive into all of them! Keep in mind that temperatures are hotter in the summer, so be sure to stay hydrated and replenish your muscles with nutrients (e.g. potassium) after your workout.
Spinning is one of my favorite – ok my very favorite – workouts out there, which is (surprise surprise) why I teach it. It’s an awesome sweat-inducing cardio workout, but it also has the potential to help you build strength. It’s super simple to follow along – no confusing steps or moves to memorize – and who wouldn’t want to just ride their hearts out in a dark room with blasting music that makes you wanna get out of your seat and dance?
