There are two times each year when we collectively decide to prioritize fitness. First, in January, when we set our New Year’s resolutions, and second, each spring, when we become obsessed with getting “beach ready.” So what happens during the rest of the year?
We don’t have to abandon our fitness routines just because sweater season is starting. Fitness should be a year-round pursuit to help you live and feel better regardless of the number of barbecues or clambakes you’re attending. To help you transition, come check out Wellness Box group fitness classes. Let me highlight some of our favorite workouts to help you ease into indoor fitness while improving strength and mobility for your outdoor hobbies.
If you like kayaking or standup paddleboarding, I’ll agree it’s tough to beat gliding along a still lake atop a kayak or a SUP on a sunny day. But, when the temperatures are like today, you know it’s time to beat a hasty retreat to our classes.
You can replicate those same functional movements from your summer water sports inside and outside with TRX Low Rows, TRX High Rows, and TRX Muscle Ups.
One of the perks of hiking and trail running is that the uneven surface helps improve your ankle stabilization. It’s easy to continue training those muscles by practicing TRX Suspended Lunges. In addition to strengthening your ankles, this move also targets the quads, hamstrings, and glutes—all muscle groups that you’ll need when you’re ready to hit the trails again next year—or the slopes during ski season!
If you have access to an indoor pool, swimming can be a year-round activity, and supplementing your laps with our classes can help you become a better swimmer by practicing the TRX Plank, Squat, Power Pull, and Swimmer’s Pull. TRX Planks can help you develop a neutral spine while floating, TRX Squats increase your power on wall turns, TRX Power Pulls train you to “preload” your pectorals for freestyle, and TRX Swimmer’s Pulls help you “connect the catch to the core.”
If you like cycling, our classes can help you build strength, mobility, and flexibility for your next cycling outing.
Bears may hibernate through the winter months, but your healthy habits shouldn’t. Wellness Box Inc. can help you maintain those active summer lifestyle results all year long.
