We all need to have goals in life, right? Without goals were would be? Probably sitting on the couch wondering why we did not take just take a leap of faith. So just jump up so that you can be the person you want to be. Here are fall fitness tips to help you meet your goal:
1. Manage Your Time Well
All successful people learn to manage their time well so they can squeeze their tasks, work and exercise in their day. If you learn better time management you will find yourself more productive in all aspects of your life. To better utilize your time, come up with a schedule that helps you to become more structured. For example, run at your lunch break or if you have young children you can run while you wait for the after school bus. Time management tops my fall fitness tips because every second counts.
2. Enjoy the Weather
There is nothing like exercising in mid fifty degree weather! Oh, the cool breeze and the smell of fall in the area are so relaxing so utilize this time to get out and enjoy your workouts. Take advantage of the ideal workout temperature while you can!
3. Take after Dinner Walks
After you eat dinner, get out while you can before the sun sets and enjoy an after dinner walk. A brisk 45 minute walk will help you burn some extra calories and digest your food. Enjoy a cool, crisp fall walk.
4. Appreciate the Foliage
I love fall for the changing color of the leaves. I really appreciate it when I am running, biking or lunging by. The amber, yellow, and variations of colors are beautiful and you can appreciate this even more when you are exercising because endorphins make you happier.
5. Adjust to the Darkness
As the sun rises later and then sets earlier, you may find this to be an adjustment to your workout schedule. Be safe and remember if you can only exercise early, a head lamp and a reflective vest will help you. Of course if you can squeeze your workout in while it is light out, this is always the safest way to go.
6. Go for a Brisk Hike
Enjoy this beautiful fall weather by getting outside for a brisk hike. There are many local hiking trails that you can embark on. And if you want to challenge yourself even more you can try running up these trails. Trail running is a great way to get in shape and put your body to the test.
7. Set a Fall Goal
Set a fall goal for yourself like running your first 5k, doing an adventure race, or even doing a sprint triathlon. Push yourself and motivate yourself in the training process. This is a great way to help you to meet your fall fitness goals!
Hope my tips help to inspire you so that you can reach your fall fitness goals! What are your fitness goals? And what inspires you to exercise?
