In my years of working in the fitness industry, I’ve found there are two types of people:
- Those who are committed to their fitness routine 12 months out of the year.
- Those who use vacations, summer, holidays, etc. as an excuse to let go.
Don’t get me wrong, even I love a break from training every now and again, but one thing I’m conscious of is not falling into the summer trap.
Here’s the thing. Your body doesn’t know it’s a holiday or summer time or that you’re visiting a resort somewhere. Your metabolism doesn’t differentiate. So, if you’re using this time of year to drop the ball on your fitness, you’re doing yourself a massive disservice.
Starting over is hard and discouraging, and I’ve never seen anyone start over and feel great about it.
So, do yourself a favor and keep yourself on track this summer while still enjoying the warm weather.
And if you’re staying on track, AMAZING JOB! We applaud you! We would love for you to share this message with someone in your life who you know needs to hear it.
Here’s to staying fit and strong this summer!
