“The smell of spring is in the air and many of us are now realizing summer is on its way. Long days, outings to the beach, tank tops and sundresses, swim wear, cycling, camping, walks by the water, parties by the pool….Can’t you wait!?
Try these tips and if you want a bit more motivation or an individual workout plan….call me!
Find an aerobic activity like walking, jogging, cycling or swimming that you know you can stick to a minimum of 3x/week. Don’t choose jogging if you hate to jog. You’ll never stick to it long enough to get any results.
- Beginner: Perform your activity 3x this week for 20 minutes each session
- Intermediate: Perform your activity 4x this week for 20-30 minutes each session
- Advanced: Perform your activity 5x this week for 20-60 minutes each session
Choose one lower body, one upper body and one core exercise and complete 8-15 reps of each exercise two to three times this week on alternating days. Read my previous blog for muscle conditioning exercise ideas HERE (add your own website or exercise suggestions).
For example, you could do a set(s) of squats, push-ups and v-sits.
- Beginner: Perform 1 set of each exercise.
- Intermediate: Perform 2 sets of each exercise
- Advanced: Perform 3 sets of each exercise
Hamstring on the wall – Lay on your back with your hips close to the wall and your legs positioned straight up against the wall. To make the stretch less intense, move your hips a few inches away from the wall. To make the stretch more intense, keep your hips positioned right up against the wall and wrap a towel around your feet and lightly pull your legs a few inches away from the wall.
Drink 10- 8 glasses of water each day. Purchase a Hydro-flask or Yeti water bottle and have it with you every where you go. You may find yourself running to the washroom more but this sensation will subside in a few weeks.

Hey did you know that I wrote the ONLY complete training business system designed to help you run a million dollar personal training business?! You can have this same business system that will help you work SMARTER and generate HUGE profits like we do here at Northwest Personal Training. The fee to purchase the Business of Personal Training System can be made up within 1 month of increased PT sales and there are NO recurring franchise or licensing fees. A comparable business system in other industries would require an initial investment of tens of thousands of dollars.
