Summer is coming and that means it’s time to get ready for bikinis, shorts and the beach. But if you’ve spent the winter months binge-watching Netflix and comfort food, you may not be quite ready for that. Fortunately, there are plenty of fun sports activities that help you get back in shape. From strength training to relaxed walking, how will you get fit this summer?
Walking and relaxing
Hiking is accessible to everyone. You don’t need anything and it’s a great way to get moving again after a long time of doing nothing. Walking at a brisk pace is a cardiovascular workout that rivals cardio in the gym. Even a nature walk in sandals or walks in the park on your joggers, it’s all top sport wrapped in relaxation!
Strength training is great for getting you ready for the summer. Train with weights, machines or just your own body weight. Not only does it strengthen your muscles, it also helps increase your metabolism, helping you burn more calories even at rest. A professional trainer can help you with the correct technique to avoid injury.
Yoga or padel
Yoga strengthens body and mind. Whether you are 15 or 50, yoga is always good. Online you will find countless videos and online lessons to help you get started. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced yogi, you can always grow in yoga. Can it be spicier? Padel is now a very popular sport. The active combination of tennis and squash is accessible to everyone. Padel is enjoying the outdoors in a fun club with friends and while working on your fitness.
Even more popular than padel? To run. All you need for running are sturdy sports shoes for women or men. The great thing about running is that you can do it anywhere.
Remember that it is important to choose a sport activity that you like and that suits you. By choosing an activity that you enjoy, you are motivated to persevere and it is easier to achieve your desired result: a fit body for the summer. And don’t forget, what is most important: the fact that you move and enjoy.
