5 Ways To Get Fit Over Summer

Figure 1 Trail Running Is A Good Way To Get In Shape Over The Summer

For many of us, we set a goal to get fit before summer. Then, as summer finally arrives, we are no closer to that goal than we were in spring. This summer, no matter what your fitness goal is, it’s time to reach it. There is nothing that says you have to put off your fitness goals until fall or winter. In fact, summer is the best time to get in shape and we are going to show you how!

Whether you want to run faster, get stronger or just lose some excess weight, AG Sports has the high quality athletic gear you need to reach your fitness goals. Let’s take a look at some ways that you can get in shape this summer.

5 Ways To Get Fit Over Summer

Get Stronger- 

Build strength by lifting weights in your local gym. A resistance workout will not only help you get stronger and build more muscle, but you will also see a significant reduction in excess bodyfat.

Take Up Trail Running-

Purchase a good pair of trail running shoes and begin a weekly trail running workout. As you get used to running off-road, slowly increase the frequency of your trail runs until you are running less and less on the treadmill or on asphalt. The beautiful scenery will add variety to your workout and make you want to run longer.

Try Something New- 

Try something that you haven’t tried before and discover a new fitness routine. Trying Pilates, martial arts or bootcamp training will give your body something new it might not be used to, making the workouts that much more effective.

Eat Healthier- 

During the summer months, we tend to eat some rather unhealthy foods that we wouldn’t normally eat throughout the year. Ice cream, fried carnival foods and traditional summertime mayo-based salads are high in fat and calories and derail your fitness routine. Choose foods that are high in proteins and antioxidants instead and don’t forget to eat your greens.

Set A New Fitness Goal For Autumn-

While you might not have reached your pre-summer fitness goals, you can set new goals for autumn and take advantage of the warm summer weather to work out more often and reach your new fitness goals much more effectively. Remember to create attainable fitness goals which will help you stick to your workout plan.
