This month I’m talking with Lauren Dell’Olio, who heads up the marketing here at Koko FitClub and is a busy mother of three, about the challenge of sticking with fitness during busy summer months.
Many of us fall into this rut each year: It’s summertime and the “living is easy”, and we take time off fitness. That can happen for a variety of reasons. Maybe work is crazy, vacations are calling, the kids are home from school and need more entertaining and chauffeuring, or just the simple fact it’s more fun to sit by the pool with a cocktail than exercise.
Taking that time off, even for the right reasons like enjoying family time, can make it that much harder to get back to where you were on your fitness journey, especially with added weight gain and lack of energy.
Maybe you cannot get to the gym 3 times a week during the summer. It’s okay! Going just 1 or 2 times most weeks during the busy summertime will help maintain your health and fitness and avoid detraining.
So if you’ve hit pause on your fitness this summer, It’s never too late to get that momentum going again. Today’s the day to start – or restart!
