4 Summer Body Workout Tips

  1. Mix it up. If you work the same parts of the body over and over, you will experience muscle fatigue. By doing cardio one day, then strength training the next, then some yoga or other stretching, you will be getting in a complete exercise routine that is really working all parts of the body – and you will see and feel the results of your efforts! If you need help or ideas on workouts, start your free trial of my membership… I have hundreds of workouts and so many challenges that can help you get – and stay – in shape!
  2. Set a schedule. The more you plan your fitness into your daily routine, the more likely you are to stick with it. I like to get up early and get my workout in and out of the way. It makes me feel productive and filled with energy!
  3. Create mini goals. Write down what you want to accomplish, then aim to achieve it! Whether you want to lose five pounds, be able to walk a mile with ease, tone up your thighs, or do a week of pilates and yoga, setting a goal can be motivating. Plus – then you can reward yourself with flowers, a new workout outfit, or a fun summer read!
  4. Complement your fitness with healthy eating habits. You can work out all day long, but if you are ending your exercise routine with a bag of chips or a tub of ice cream, you aren’t really striving for the healthy summer body workout results you want. I like to start the day with a healthy breakfast that gives me fat, protein and carbs – it helps give me the energy I need to get through the day. My Get Your Veggies Omelet in my Whole Body Plan is a fave of mine! Then a lunch that’s heavy on veggies and whole grains, and a dinner that has some healthy omega-3 fats, such as my Maple Grilled Salmon with Roasted Brussels Sprouts. For more recipes – and a complete meal plan – start your free trial of my plan!

I hope these summer body workout tips help you have the best summer ever! And don’t forget you can sign up for a 30-day free trial of my plan – it’s a wonderful way to get started on a healthy whole body routine, or to take it up a notch if you are already living a healthy lifestyle! No matter what, you can do it – you are worth it!

Let’s get fitter, together – inside and out,
