Summer is almost here and we’ve been pounding the pavement and eating healthy to get fit for bikini season. It’s not too late to start your summer fitness campaign so we’ve teamed up with the new Asics Uni Hill Factory Outlets store to put together some tips and hints that will help you get fit and lift your stamina for the season ahead.

Head Outdoors

Warmer weather and longer days means that the gym isn’t the only option for getting fit and healthy. Shake up your exercise routine and take yourself outdoors to a park, running track or local oval. It’s the perfect time to enjoy the fresh air, the extra hours of sunshine and get some much needed Vitamin D (don’t forget to wear sunscreen!). When our exercise routine is the same for too long, our body and mind get lazy and we’re no longer challenged to reach our goals so it’s good to mix things up.

Get adventurous and take things to the beach by running on the sand, playing a game of tennis or even taking on the challenge of hiking some terrain. Enjoy the sunshine while it lasts because as we all know, Winter comes way too fast!

Start Off Slow and be Realistic

When starting any new exercise regime you must be mindful of what works for you. Everybody is different and everyone has varying levels of fitness and health. Start off slow and simple to help build stamina and strength. If you set unrealistic goals and exercises, you might end up injuring yourself. So make you form a realistic plan.

Pair up with friends

Everyone knows a bit of pressure from friends can help to keep you on track. Having a mix of solo and social workouts helps to keep things interesting too.

Dress Appropriately

Making sure you have the right apparel will help you on your way to a better you. Putting on the right footwear and fitness apparel means you’re comfortable and prepared to sweat it out. Plus it’s pretty motivating if you feel good in what you’re wearing!

Use these simple tips to get you started. You’ll be surprised how quickly you’ll increase your fitness!
