Fitness Myth of the Month!

Nope. It all depends on you, your body, your goals, and recovery. Training days are meant to stress the body, so it can adapt and grow stronger. In order to allow the body to adapt, there needs to be easy days that can be reflected as full days off or active recovery days with light exercise. It all depends on you and you shouldn’t force anything.


πŸšΆβ€β™€οΈπŸ•’ Steps or minutes? A new study suggests both are effective for measuring your workouts! Whether you're tracking steps on your daily walk or counting minutes in your intense gym session, it all adds up to better health. πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈπŸ’ͺ

Happy Monday!

Monday Goals!

Allow time for rest and recovery between hard workouts πŸ‹οΈto prevent overtraining, promote muscle repair and growth πŸ’ͺ, and give your body time to prepare for the next workout.

Rest can be full days off from training or very light exercise.

Whatever makes your body feel better and recovered so you can train up to your potential soon!


Seasonal Goals: There are tons of local fitness events such as a charity run πŸƒβ€β™€οΈor walk 🚢, or obstacle course race 🏁. Signing up for an event can provide motivation and structure to your exercise!


Sleep Tip of the Month!

Check in to see if you're a napper or not! πŸ›A 2021 review Trusted Source suggests that napping might be helpful for people who are athletes 🀼or engage in strenuous physical activity πŸ‹and might not compromise their nighttime sleep quality.

However, taking long or irregular naps during the dayβ˜€οΈmay negatively affect your nighttime sleep. Sleeping in the daytime can confuse your internal clock πŸ•°, meaning that you may have a hard time trusted falling asleep at night.

So, if you take regular daytime naps and sleep well, you shouldn’t worry. But if daytime naps seem to be disrupting your nighttime sleep, consider cutting them shorter or limiting them in general.



Skip the elevator and take the stairs whenever possible. Climbing stairs is a great way to engage your leg muscles 🦡, get your heart pumping πŸ’™, and generally switch up your daily routine which recent research shows can increase happiness! πŸ˜„


Happy Monday!

It's getting hot! Ensure adequate hydration by drinking plenty of fluids (with electrolytes) throughout the day, especially before, during, and after exercise.

Staying hydrated keeps your energy up, enhances performance, and helps you recover faster. πŸ’¦πŸ’₯

Fitness Myth of the Month!

Cardio is fantastic exercise πŸ’ͺ, but it doesn't offer everything.

Making sure to engage in high quality resistance training πŸ‹will help increase lean body mass which will in turn speed up your metabolism.

Mix it up with strength training and a happy healthy diet for a winning combo! πŸ’ͺ

Happy Monday!

Start the week off with a goal!

Activity is activity and yes that even means Dance Breaks! πŸ’ƒπŸ•Ί
