Do you feel like summer is fast approaching and you haven’t quite hit all of your fitness goals yet? No sweat! We share five top summer fitness tips – beyond plain old diet and exercise – to help you get beach body ready.
1. Power Through Shorter, Higher Intensity Workouts
Crunched for time? You don’t have to skip your workout! Instead, make it a quick 20 minutes of high intensity interval training (HIIT) to maximize your results when you don’t have an hour or more to spend at the gym.
In fact, recent studies have found that HIIT can be even more effective than traditional cardio workouts. So if you don’t have time for long workouts, you can still crush your summer fitness goals. The most important thing is that you are maintaining a regular, sustainable exercise schedule that works for you.
2. A Reusable Water Bottle Is Your BFF
Staying hydrated is so important when it comes to reaching and maintaining fitness goals (not to mention great skin!) If you don’t drink enough water before, during, and after working out, you might experience symptoms like fatigue, dizziness, increased heart rate, or muscle cramps – all of which can get in the way of performing your best.
That said, it can be so easy to forget to drink enough water when it’s not readily available, especially when on the go. Get yourself a reusable water bottle so you can keep track of how much you’re drinking each day, and ensure that water is always an arm’s reach away, no matter where you are.
3. Book Hotels with Fitness Amenities for an Extra Boost
Whether traveling for business or leisure, being in a new place and out of your normal routine can make it difficult to stick to a regular workout schedule. Keep on crushing your fitness goals while traveling by booking hotels with fitness amenities so you can wake up to a quick yoga session or light jog before heading out for the day.
To stay safe and healthy, bring along disinfectant wipes and wipe down the equipment before and after your workout.
4. Kick Excessive Sweating to the Curb with miraDry
Does excessive underarm sweating keep you from maximizing your workouts or fitting in a relaxing walk during your lunch break? If so, you’re not alone. Hyperhidrosis, the medical term for excessive sweating, is a common condition that affects both men and women. If you can’t seem to find an antiperspirant that prevents sweat stains and body odor, hyperhidrosis might affect you.
The good news is that there is now a highly effective nonsurgical treatment for excessive underarm sweating called miraDry. MiraDry works by delivering electromagnetic energy to the targeted area, disabling sweat glands. But don’t worry, your body will still be able to cool itself off using the many other sweat glands located throughout your body.
5. Fine-Tune Your Beach Body with Body Work
You’ve been whipping up kale salads and green smoothies, working out on the regular, and mastering the art of stress management. So why aren’t you losing those last few pounds, or saying sayonara to your love handles?
The truth is that some areas – like your love handles, abs, and thighs – can be particularly challenging to tone and tighten, even with a healthy lifestyle. If you’re struggling to reach those last few fitness milestones because of this, nonsurgical body contouring devices like CoolSculpting or EMSCULPT could be the last little push you need to achieve your goals.
CoolSculpting and EMSCULPT do not require surgery or extensive downtime, so you shouldn’t have to take much time out of your busy schedule to freeze away stubborn fat or tighten and tone your abdominal or buttocks muscles.
