Author: Sarah Shevy Date Posted:1 September 2019
Winter is a time of cold solitude where all you want to do is snuggle in bed and read a book with a hot drink. I mean, we all say, “Winter is when I am going to get my summer bod!” … but, we all know that the majority of the time, this does not always go to plan. So, shake off the winter laziness! Get to work on your summer bod this spring! We have 3 awesome ways to help you reach your fitness peak this spring!
1. Hop on the treadmill! Get that cardio up!
One way to peak in your fitness and stamina is by doing the occasional run, jog or walk, either on the treadmill or around the block! This is a great way to improve your fitness, especially if you do it routinely. Jogging routinely helps to exercise your whole body. It comes as a surprise to many, but jogging doesn’t just help with weight loss and improving your stamina… it also STRENGTHENS your muscles and bones and helps improve your heart health! It is also an awesome way to de-stress and clear your mind. Jogging and running can also boost the respiratory system. So, if you have spare time and can work in a routine run, jog or walk into your schedule, we recommend you take a look at our Inside Outside treadmill range. Did we mention that AFTERPAY is available for a treadmill?! Yes, you read that correctly! AfterPay is available for all of our treadmills, which means if you need one, buy it! Why the hesitation? It is fitness made easy!
2. Update your fitness equipment!
Yes, reaching your fitness peak can require more than just that dusty, old elliptical machine that looks like it was made in the 80’s. At Inside Outside, we have a HUGE range of state-of-the-art fitness equipment. Such as rowing machines, weight sets, exercise bikes, multi-functional fitness benches and so much more! They are all efficient and sell for an affordable price in comparison to so many other fitness equipment businesses. Grab one of our rowers and tone those legs. Or you could buy one of our weight sets and really strengthen your arms! The options are endless, and guess what? You can AFTERPAY all of them!!! So, exceed that fitness goal and shop our Inside Outside fitness equipment range and get that summer bod, before summer rolls around!
3. Change the way you cook! Restrict that diet!
Unfortunately, getting to your dream body isn’t all just exercise. You need to restrict your diet. This means cutting out fatty foods, such as fast food and processed foods. This also means that you need to increase your healthy fats, sugars, and carbs when you cut out all of the nasty stuff! Portion size is a major component of this also, as calorie intake is specific to your own weight and the weight that you are striving towards. However, cutting out your favourite oily foods doesn’t have to be so hard. We have the solution! Our 7L OIL FREE Air Fryer is the way to still have those yummy, highly unhealthy foods you love BUT WITH A HEALTHY TWIST! This is perfect for those craving a fresh batch of hot chips, or anything that you fry in oil usually. Our air fryer means that you can still have your hot chips, just without the gross amount of fat and nasties that oily hot chips usually have. And what’s better? You can also AfterPay your air fryer! It doesn’t get much better than that!
4. Try to incorporate Pilates and relaxation into your everyday life!
When trying to work towards a healthy, happy lifestyle, it is not just your body that you need to keep in the best shape. Your mental health and wellbeing play a huge role in your fitness and health. Without a healthy mind, one loses motivation and drive to work towards a healthy outer. Therefore, a healthy inner body is essential! Exercise, stretching and building inner strength doing Pilates is beneficial, as it specialises in clearing your body of stress and focus on your inner thoughts and feelings. So, if you lead a stressful life, take some time for yourself, stretch out your muscles, take a Pilates class and build that inner core. On our website, we sell a range of amazing yoga mats that are great quality and affordable. However, if you are interested in acupuncture, our Acupressure Yoga Health Fitness Mat is a great alternative if you don’t have time to make it to the chiro! It helps to release the tension in your muscles and, although it does take some getting-used-to, is a huge benefit for your body long-term.
5. Get your regular 8-hours a night!
Although it is a well-known fact, getting your regular 8-10 hours of sleep per night is essential in your health routine. It is a way to get your energy back up and running so that you can achieve all that you need to during the day! So, if this means going to bed earlier in order to wake up earlier, it may be a sacrifice that you find worth taking. General self-care is an imperative part of your health and should be a priority for everybody. Another helpful tip to incorporate before you go to sleep is to ensure that your dinner or evening meal is a smaller portion size than your breakfast or lunch meal. This is because you aren’t moving as much at night time and doesn’t leave you feeling full or bloated before you go to sleep. Sleep is such an important part of health and should be the top priority for everyone. That is why it is important to have a good mattress and sturdy supportive bed frame. We all need to recharge so that we can take on the next day with even more enthusiasm, effort, and energy!
So, with these 5 helpful ways, you can be on your way to looking and feeling better in no time!
