Many people refer to the end of winter as crunch time. It’s possible that you are rushing to get ready for the end of winter when bikini season is upon us. You might have overindulged in holiday treats, making it difficult to exercise regularly, or you simply want to make the most of your workouts before bikini season. The experts at Apex Performance can help you! Here are ten ways you can increase your chances of reaching your goals before the weather warms up.
Start With Whatever You Like
Once you feel energized, you can start your workout with something that makes you happy. Love doing cardio? Get on the stair-stepper first. Do you love to swim? Swim a few laps in the pool before you start lifting weights. You’ll feel motivated and set yourself up for success with the next round of exercises.
Identify Downtimes At The Gym
People want to be able to get into and out of the gym quickly. By paying attention to traffic patterns and avoiding large crowds, you can make the most out of your time. Ask the staff at reception when are the busiest times and plan your schedule around them.
Burns More Calories
Sometimes, the hardest part of going to the gym is packing your bags. Now is the time to reward your efforts with a hard workout. You can maximize your calorie-burning potential with high-intensity interval training. These cardio exercises will help you get the most from your time at the gym.
Share A Trainer
A trainer is a great way to maximize your workouts. You will be able to stay focused and on track, and won’t allow yourself to slack off. You might be able to split one or two sessions with your personal trainer if it is not within your budget.
Before You Try It, Observe A-Class
You won’t get the best workouts if you don’t enjoy it or put in your full effort. Stop by the studio to see if you like the group exercise class before you decide to try it. Do you want to find out more about Group Fitness and which class is right for you?
