Although there’s homework on your mind and final exams looming, believe it or not, it’s almost summer! Along with the summer heat come plenty of fun recreational activities, so here are five fun ways to get healthy by the time summer rolls around.
Dancing has got to be one of the most fun ways to get your daily exercise in. Everyone’s got their favourite songs, so whenever you’ve got a couple minutes at home, turn up the music and just go crazy! If you want something more structured, try signing up for a hip-hop or salsa dance class with some friends.
Instead of going for a jog by yourself, find a friend who’s also looking to get fit and schedule weekly races. Not only will you be able to motivate each other, a little competition is great motivation.
Even though hula hoops are often considered children’s toys, there’s no doubt that they provide a great workout. Indoors or outdoors, grab a hoop and start swinging those hips!
While you’re watching the latest episode of Modern Family or American Idol, just grab a couple of weights and pump those arms. Before you know it, you’ll get your fill of entertainment and have great biceps!
“Fun” might not be the first word that comes to mind when you think of fruits and veggies, but they are very important factors when it comes to fitness and staying in shape. Smoothies are an easy and tasty way to incorporate vitamins and minerals into your diet, so choose your favourite fruits and veggies, blend, and you’ve got the perfect healthy snack!Login or register to post comments.
