Spring Fitness Fever at VIDA

By Danielle Michels

Although it seemed like winter would never end, alas it is springtime! We can finally run outside comfortably, work off those winter pounds and get some fresh air.

springfeverSince you’re probably itching to be basking in the sun, and looking damn good in your swimwear while you’re at it, here are some fun ways to get beach body (or Penthouse Pool) ready with VIDA Fitness this spring.

Sign up for a race – Set the goal to complete a 5K, half or a full marathon, and don’t push off signing up for it. Knowing you’re committed to participating is what will keep you motivated to train. Next step is mapping out a training schedule and finding group exercise classes like conditioning and yoga that you can add in for days that you’re not logging mileage or hitting the pavement. Cross training is key to providing your body variation and rest from your main element of training as well as improving your overall performance come race time.

Enroll in boot camp – Boot camp is a great way to get outside while still enjoying the community that comes with a group classes. Plus, you’ll have awesome trainers who are going to push you hard so you’re hitting your maximum potential and getting a good mix of cardio and strength training exercises. Whether you’re a weekend warrior or a 3-days-a-week type of boot camper, this six-week program has several options to fit your schedule.

Do some nutritional spring cleaning – Cold weather diets often consist of hearty stews, deliciously crusty breads and creamy lattes, which are great for comfort during the harsh winter, but can cause some post-seasonal guilt. Then there’s brunch, wonderfully boozy and calorie-laden. The brunch battle rages on year-round. As our registered dietitian, Cat Taylor likes to say, “You can’t out train a bad diet.” If you need a little help getting back on track with eating right or incorporating nutrition as part of your training plan, contact Cat at ctaylor@vidafitness.com to set up a complimentary nutritionFit.

Team up – Working out in the great outdoors is perfect for having your alone time to escape hectic schedules and to clear your mind, but one of the best ways to keep yourself motivated and accountable is through a teammate. Join one of the running groups at the various VIDA locations, or think about splitting personal training with a friend or coworker so you can cheer someone on and be cheered on in return. Having an accountability partner within the VIDA Fitness community is a surefire way to keep working toward your goals, and hitting them!
