Stay balanced over the holidays.

With the barrage of holiday parties, happy hours, and food filled get-togethers it's easy to let our fitness slip. Balance during the holidays doesn't have to be hard. Here are a few tips from our coaches to stay healthy while also enjoying all of the fun stuff:

  • Schedule our classes in your calendar
    • Set yourself up for success by committing to a class just as you would a meeting or party. Even with the cold weather it's great to get your workout done early so that you don't have an excuse to skip it later in the day.
  • Drink lots of water. 
    • It's easy to overeat with all of the food at parties. Have a glass or two of water 30 minutes before each meal to suppress your hunger and help with digestion. Don't forget to drink water if you're out enjoying those cocktails, it'll help with those pesky hangovers and you'll wake up feeling well enough to go out and exercise the next day.
  •  Reduce stress by staying active and focusing on your breath.
    • Hanging out with family, buying gifts, and traveling can be stressful. Battle the stress by staying active. Remember that not every workout has to be intense, sometimes just getting out for an easy jog, short hike, or restorative yoga class can be beneficial. Try this when you're feeling stressed: Drink a glass of room temperature water first thing in the morning and take five deep breaths (5 seconds in and out) when you feel stressed or overwhelmed.
  • Don't be too hard on yourself.
    • If you miss a workout, eat too much, or partake in too many libations, try not to get down on yourself. Health is a lifelong journey and there will be many ups and downs. Try to enjoy the ride and stay positive.

Q: Who's your hero and why?

I admire and hope to emulate anyone who can keep movement part of their day to day lifestyle even when everyone is so busy. My Dad just took 5 months off work to hike the AT! That was amazing. And my Mom can do one handed pushups, so I admire both of my parents quite a bit.
