I am a firm believer of the fact that people always want to remain physically fit and healthy. Now this might be the opposite of the worldly view that people in general are lazy and don’t want to be fit. I believe that people want to be in good shape; and if provided with the right guidance, they definitely follow a fitness regime. I can say this from my personal experience as every time that I have shared my fitness videos on social media, I have got a tremendous response and loads of queries – which indicates both the willingness and the curiosity to be fit.
Inspired by your responses, my personal trainer, Anna Holmes, and I have devised a perfect summer workout regime. I know it’s vacation time and you might be out on a trip, on a long holiday, away from gyms, no equipment et al. Thereupon, I am here with a summer fitness regime that you can practice in any small corner; a regime that needs no equipment, yet exercises and tones each and every part of your body. So the next time you want to flaunt your bikini body, you don’t have to think twice.
I must make a mention here and take the opportunity to thank Westin Workout Fitness Studio at The Westin Dubai, Al Habtoor City to keep up with my fitness routine & Mai Dubai for keeping me hydrated throughout my fitness regime. I have regularly been using the facilities of the Workout studio at The Westin Dubai, Al Habtoor City and it has the finest exercise equipment for all levels of performance in an airy, energizing environment. I always prefer Mai Dubai drinking water as it has extremely low sodium content, and is high in minerals like calcium and magnesium, thus not just rehydrating your body but also replenishing it with minerals.
But before we start with the regime, these are the 5 Tips that I always follow before any workout –
1) Pick the right time. Mornings and evenings are cooler.
2) Pick the right clothing with material that lets your body breathe.
3) Avoid extreme temperature changes. Never walk into a cold room when your body temperature is high
4) Listen to your body. Go slow and steady. Don’t push yourself too much.
5) Last but not the least…Stay hydrated at all times.
Now that we are done with the initial tips, let’s get going with the Ultimate Summer Fitness Guide
You see!!! It is that simple, easy to execute and very less time consuming. That’s my Summer Fitness Guide. But just in case you failed to note it down, here’s a lowdown on the whole regime.
