Simple Spring fitness routines

Try looking beyond your ideal “summer body” and consider working on developing healthy, long-term fitness habits with these simple workout ideas.

Morning workouts

It might seem counterintuitive for non-morning people to start working out in the mornings, but getting out for a run first thing can have you feeling more invigorated and ready to get after the day than coffee. That feeling of euphoria when your heart is racing and you can feel your whole body waking up is exactly why all those early morning workout classes are such a hit. So instead of hitting the snooze button, pull on your sneakers and get that blood flowing. Maybe you only get out for 15 minutes, or maybe you make it an hour, but whatever you can pull off before getting to work or the kids off to school is setting up your day with positivity and intention.

Workouts you can do at your desk

If you’re like many Americans you probably spend a majority of your day sitting or standing at a desk while doing work. Whether you work from home or a corporate office, sitting in front of a computer all day can be exhausting. Especially when you find yourself spending more and more of your lunch breaks in front of the computer as well. Instead of spending your precious down time checking your personal email or the latest breaking news, why not get in a quick and easy workout right at your desk. These simple exercises can give you a whole body workout in just 30 minutes or less utilizing what you have right in your office. If you’re the type of person who feels that mid-day slump from sitting all day long then this is the perfect time for you to get up and get moving.

Outdoor workouts that don’t feel like workouts

Join an adult soccer, softball, kickball, or basketball league in your hometown! Play is important to our emotional, physical, and mental health no matter how old we are. Whether you join an indoor soccer league or the company softball team, participating in a team sport again can be a fun and motivating way to get you back into a daily or weekly workout routine. Not a team player? Dust off that tennis racket. It’s time to play. Figuring out new and fun ways to incorporate fitness into our days is about more than having a beach bod. It’s about having a healthy, happy, and active life.
