New year, new goals, new workouts, new you! This is the perfect time to experiment and find something new, exciting and healthy to totally dominate 2017.
Getting fit can be fun and shouldn’t be a financial burden. Maybe you’ll even find your resolution easier to stick to it if isn’t costing you a fortune. The perfect workout is one that’s actually do-able and manages to make you feel like a hero in the meantime.
Read on for our top three tips…
1. 5km Run/Walk
Surprisingly there are quite a few run/walks in Regina that are not only designed to gently build up your stamina and get you used to getting out and running, but that also charge a small participation fee which is generally donated back to a local charity.
We really recommend the Shoppers Drug Mart- Run for Women which supports Family Service Regina’s mental health programs. You can sign up for the 5km or 10km run/walk and get your kids involved in the Little Steps 1km for girls and boys under the age of 12.
Register with your kids, a group of friends, your co-workers and you’ll have a day of awesome inspiration and activity!
You can find more upcoming Run/Walk’s by visiting the Running Room.
2. YouTube your workouts!
YouTube is full of really great free exercise programs, like, Jillian Michaels: 30 day shred and Jillian Michaels: Yoga Meldown. Both of these programs come highly recommended (I’ve tried them myself) and they do deliver what is promised if you stick to the regime, and trust me, she has no qualms telling you that in her videos.
3. There’s an App for that.
Now that we’re stuck in the deep freeze that is Saskatchewan, forget searching for Pokemon on a beautiful summers eve.
Your cell phone can actually help you get fit for free! There are tons of fitness apps that can help you get into shape and stay there.
The best app for you depends on your goals, but my favorites include MyFitnessPal , which helps you track your calorie intake and exercise, and the 30 Day Fitness Challenge, which helps you fit workouts into your life and stay motivated.
