5 Tips to a Healthier You this Summer
Move Your Body: In general, as people age they become less physically active. But as we become older, we need more regular exercise, not less. The American Heart Association notes that 69 percent of all adults are obese or overweight, and that number continues to increase. Older adults aged 45 to 85 were more likely to be advised by their doctors to exercise. Get moving with Aquatics! We have warm water and lap pools at all clubs!
Group Exercise Classes: Group exercise offers a variety of benefits you might miss out on if you choose to work out on your own. Some of the benefits include exposure to a social and fun environment, a safe and effectively designed workout, a consistent exercise schedule, an accountability factor for participating in exercise, and a workout that requires no prior exercise knowledge or experience. We offer 60+ weekly Group Exercise classes every week, at all three of our quality locations.
Stay Hydrated: What If We Don’t Get Enough Water? Most of us experience Dehydration when more water is moving out of our body than we are taking in. Look out for muscle cramps, fatigue, and extreme thirst. But, did you know that dehydration affects your brain as well? Our brain is made up of around 73% water. If we don’t keep up with our water intake, especially in hot weather or while exercising, our thinking and cognition can suffer.
Eat Clean: Clean eating is a simple concept. ... At its simplest, clean eating is about eating whole foods, or “real” foods — those that are un- or minimally processed, refined, and handled, keeping food close to its natural form. Remember, not all salads are healthy. Salads loaded with dressing, cheese, and fried chicken are also loaded with calories and fat. Add fresh fruit on top, instead of dressing. Summer is a great time for fresh fruit. Choose watermelon or cherries for dessert instead of cookies or ice cream.
Create New Habits: Cycling allows you to build muscle, burn calories, and is a great cardiovascular activity that is also low-impact. A great way to get in shape for summer, and train yourself using long term habits is to pick up an ongoing exercise that you can do virtually everywhere! Cycling is a great form of excersie that can easily be achieved. We offer dozens of cycling machines at our club, and when you’re not at the club you can pull out your bike at home to get a similar experience. Cycling allows you to build muscle, burn calories, and is a great cardiovascular activity that is also low-impact.
