It’s never too early to talk about planning you workout schedule around the holidays. I’m teaching at Barry’s Bootcamp on Black Friday at 8:10 AM and plan to take class afterwards myself so if you’re in town, come pay me a visit before you shop on Newbury Street. We have showers with Malin & Goetz products, too!
As part of my campaign with adidas, I’ve been creating posts for their training website. This month, I’m dishing out my top tips for finding time to exercise during the Holidays. It’s not live just yet, but you can check out my posts here.
Here are a few of the tips that I implement myself during the holidays…
1. Schedule your workouts like appointments and stick to them. If a friend invites you out to lunch on Black Friday and you have a workout scheduled, suggest getting your nails done after a little shopping later in the day. Keep your fitness appointment.
2. If you’re traveling find a studio to try out. I’ve mentioned GoRecess in the past, but if you are unfmailiar with the site, it’s great for finding local studios when away from home that accept drop ins. I found my love for CorePower Yoga and Barry’s Bootcamp doing this while visiting my brother in LA. Yelp and RateYourBurn are also good resources.
3. Workout first thing in the morning. This way you get the hard part of your day out of the way and can enjoy it to the fullest! Whenever I put off sweating until later in the day, I feel much less productive as my daily tasks are weighted by the inevitable hour leading up to exercise and the hour getting ready afterwards. It totally puts a funk in my day especially when it’s a Saturday or Sunday.
I’ll let you know when the rest of the post is up on adidas training but in the mean time, how do you find time to exercise during the holidays? If you live in Boston, don’t forget to join me at Barry’s some time soon. I teach Monday at 4 pm, Tuesday and Friday at 8 am.
