Top 3 Tips to Stay Motivated During the Holidays
The holidays are upon us and that means lots and lots of fun, food, and festivities. There’s no better time than the holiday season to enjoy family and friends, as well as the occasional extra helping of stuffing or sweet treat. But what happens when the sofa suddenly sounds better than a super-sweaty workout? It’s all about maintaining your mindset and keeping yourself in check until the New Year kicks in.
Here are our top three tips to stay motivated and fit during the most tempting time of the year:
1) Buddy Up for the Holidays
The more the merrier, right? Grab a family member(s) or friend(s) who will be your holiday buddy—decide to maintain, not gain during the holiday season by doing workouts together, trying new fitness classes on your holiday days off!
2) Maintain your current routine!
You have a long list of places to go, presents to buy, and people to see. So maybe you don’t have time to work out today. Tomorrow will work, right? Wrong. Make sure your workouts are still scheduled. Holidays don’t mean a holiday from working out! For many people, the holidays are the most wonderful time of the year, so be sure to maintain a healthy balance to keep it that way.
4) Plan Short Workouts
With so much happening during the holidays, it’s easy to commit to everything but your workout. To compromise, commit to short workouts. HIIT workouts, KILLER CORE or RIP 30 classes are great for getting your workout in with limited time! These classes focus on efficient routines that are intense and take less time. My advice, take your pick during the holidays, but “Fitness is not negotiable.”
