I know what you did last summer…well I don’ know what you did last summer but I do know many fitness and healthy living plans get lost in the shuffle and drop on the priority list but it doesn’t have to be an “all or nothing” situation.

Let’s face it temptations are plentiful and our Summer is short so it is tempting to go on hiatus from your workouts and play catch up with your fitness goals in the Fall. Tempting that is until the Fall when it can be really difficult to regain your progress and the habits you had built. This can be really deflating and procrastination may set in sometimes pushing your return until the New Year.

We suggest an indoor/outdoor approach where you use the club and our services to prep, and improve for the summer activities, maintain the energy you need to maximize your summer plans and prevent major setbacks.

Here are 3 great reasons to maintain or renew your commitment to the club and your goals this Summer.

1. Quiet –  the club tends to be less busy during the Summer months making staff, classes, and workout space more accessible –

  • try something new like a new class or a fresh workout,
  • hone or learn some new skills from Personal Training or Small Group Training sessions as the Trainer’s schedules tend to have more availability.
2. Stay on Track– While others take breaks you can gain momentum and continue toward your goals.
  • Why stop and risk a lengthy break- If you are physically away from PWFC try our Virtual Options with Optimal, it travels with you anywhere and will help keep you feeling confident, strong, and healthy so you can feel great about your time away.
  • CrossTrain to keep your indoor workouts fresh and maximize your outdoor endeavors. Adding specific elements provides purpose to your training some examples could be to improve your conditioning or reduce injury for cycling, tennis, golf, hiking, softball, soccer, watersports the list goes on and on.
3. Climate Controlled- The good intentions of staying fit solely through outdoor activity is a good thought but rarely followed through. The weather is why we want to be outdoors but believe it or not it keeps us in as well and plays a role with consistency and intensity. Factors like:
  • Extreme heat,
  • Excessive sun,
  • Rainy days
 Having access to an indoor facility like PWFC with controlled temperature and lots of natural light provides you with options to safely workout without concerns or excuses.
During the Spring we are peppered with messages and pressures to “get ready for summer” or be “beach body ready ” etc. In reality, a 6-12 week “get ready” program isn’t the answer! We should be focused on consistency and a plan to achieve and maintain throughout the season. Remember fitness/healthy living is a lifestyle not something to turn on and off. You can easily enjoy your summer and maintain many healthy choices (and indulge in some not healthy choices) without totally packing your healthy living goals away with your winter clothes.
