Fall Fitness- Rekindling Your Fitness Flame after a Summer Hiatus
As the warm, lazy days of summer draw to a close, it’s common to feel a slight pang of guilt about those patio beers, delicious meals or skipped workouts. But the changing of seasons offers the perfect opportunity to refocus on your fitness goals and get back into the groove.
Set Clear Goals:
Before diving back into your fall fitness routine, take some time to set clear and achievable goals. These goals will serve as your roadmap and motivation throughout your journey. Whether it’s working out three days a week, running a certain distance, or dropping a few pounds- sitting down and setting goals will definitely help you achieve them.
Create a Realistic Plan:
Once you have your goals in mind, create a realistic plan that fits into your daily life. Be mindful of your schedule, work commitments, and other responsibilities. Overloading your plate with workouts can lead to burnout, so start slow and gradually increase intensity and frequency.
Start with the Basics:
After a summer break, it’s essential to ease your body back into physical activity. Don’t expect to lift as heavy or crush your cardio session like you have previously. Start light, start slower, and be proud of yourself for getting moving again.
Find a Workout Buddy:
Getting back into a fall fitness routine after summer can be more enjoyable when you have a workout buddy. Partnering with a friend or family member can add an element of fun, accountability, and healthy competition to your routine.
Variety is the spice of life, and it applies to your fitness routine too! Mix up your workouts to prevent boredom and engage different muscle groups. Try a combination of cardio, strength training, flexibility exercises, and classes like yoga or Pilates to keep things interesting.
Update Your Gear:
Treat yourself to some new workout gear as a motivator. A fresh pair of running shoes, comfortable active wear, or fitness accessories can make you excited to hit the gym or head outdoors.
Fitness and nutrition go hand in hand. Reevaluate your diet and make healthier choices by incorporating more fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains into your meals. Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day.
Track Your Progress:
Keeping a record of your workouts, meals and progress can be incredibly motivating. Use a fitness app or a journal to track your achievements, which can help you stay committed and see how far you’ve come.
Finally, maintain a positive mindset throughout your fitness journey. Be kind to yourself, celebrate your successes, and don’t dwell on setbacks. Remember that progress may be slow at times, but consistency and patience will lead to lasting results.
Getting back into a fall fitness routine after a summer break may seem daunting, but with the right mindset and a well-thought-out plan, you can reignite your passion for a healthy lifestyle. Embrace the changing seasons as an opportunity for personal growth, and before you know it, you’ll be well on your way to achieving your fitness goals. So, lace up those sneakers, grab your water bottle, and let’s embark on this exciting journey towards a fitter, healthier you!
We certainly do! You can either purchase programs or book personal training sessions and be given your workout at the end of the session.
We have free parking, showers, sweat/shower towels, wifi and toiletries.
If you need to reschedule a session, no worries at all! Just give us a 24 hour heads up and you will not be charged for your workout.
Ideally, you should have some form of fuel in your system before you workout. Eating an easily digested carbohydrate an hour or so before you come to the studio ensures that you’ll have enough energy in the tank to get through your workout. Fruit is always a great option if you are concerned about getting an upset stomach. But once again everyone is different so experiment with what works best for you.
Most likely you will start to feel better before you really see the results. We always remind clients to celebrate everything along their fitness journey- whether it is lifting a heavier weight, recruiting the proper muscle groups or dropping/gaining inches. The more consistent you stay to your workout and nutrition plan the quicker you will see physical results.
There is no magic pill or diet. At the end of the day it is a very simple equation and that is calories in vs. calories out. If you would like to lose weight you need to eat fewer calories than you are burning. If you are looking to put on weight you want to eat more calories than you are burning.

That is a loaded question but weight loss comes down to a simple equation – calories in vs. calories out. If you eat less calories than you burn you should lose weight.
