5 Tips for Better Summer Fitness

When the snow and ice of winter are long gone, getting active gets easier. The road, the park and the beach all become your fitness playground. Here are 5 great ways to help make this your healthiest summer yet:

Involve the Kids

Exercise as a family when the kids are out of school. One way is with the Expresso S3Y Youth Bike. Created just for kids—with safety features and an adjustable seat that moves as your child grows—it offers fun, “game-like” virtual reality exercise programming on a generous 19” LCD screen to make exercising so much fun for kids.

Have a Ball

On so-hot and too-rainy days, get your kids moving on durable fitness balls. Visit this link for ideas about kid-friendly exercises for stability balls—or make it a game! Place the ball between your  back and a wall, and see who can perform more squats or leg lifts.

Take It With You

It’s easy to keep your fitness routine on vacation. Pack lightweight, transportable accessories—like TRX suspension training (which leverages a doorframe, resistance bands, and your own bodyweight for huge results), or strength bands for convenient resistance training anytime, anywhere. And for cardio fun that never gets old, don’t forget to pack the jump ropes!

Get Competitive

Make exercise more fun with competition. Most fitness equipment manufacturers now embed their machines with incredible apps that let you virtually compete with others from the comfort of your own home. Try-and-buy fitness favorites from LifeSpan (with its LifeSpan Fitness Club) and Expresso that successfully combine results-oriented fitness with interactive fun.

Wear Your Fitness

Wearable activity trackers like the iFit Active and the Polar Loop help you maintain your fitness routine from anywhere—whether you’re home, at the park or on vacation. Monitor your activity, your nutrition, your caloric intake, and your sleeping patterns all summer long.
