If you’re feeling the effects of all that hearty winter comfort food, and cosying up indoors, and want to find your fit again, then why not hit the outdoors – or anywhere – with a Fitbit tracker to start getting your beach-body ready.
Whatever you choose in the Fitbit family, you’ll be motivated to move further, and you’ll get information and stats that will help you keep up the momentum.
The Surge is the latest Fitbit, and it’s the most hardworking and multitasking. It’s the first in the Fitbit family with GPS tracking, and you can see distance, pace and elevation climbed, and review routes and split times. It also tracks steps, distance, calories burned, floors climbed and active minutes, and has a battery life of up to seven days.
The Fitbit Charge HR tracks your heart rate using PurePulse technology, plus your workouts, daily steps and sleep. The Charge HR doesn’t miss a beat – it tracks your activity all-day long, including calories burned, distance covered and floors climbed.
So you want to get fit in spring? Here’s how to create a fitness habit that lasts beyond a season:
Prepare the night before. By laying out or packing up your workout gear the night before, you have everything you need to make it easy to get out the door in the morning.
Tell someone you’re working out. Adding a level of accountability can help motivate you to get moving, even if you don’t want to. Who knows, maybe they’ll even want to join you!
Keep easy meals on hand. If you’re rushing out the door in the morning, or aren’t looking forward to a lengthy cooking process after working out at night, prepare ahead of time by keeping some easy-to-make meals around for workout days, like smoothies or pre- made dinners.
Work out before you sit down. If you prefer working out at the end of the day, make sure you get your exercise in before you start to relax. Heading to the gym on your way home from work or only stopping by home long enough to change into workout gear will help you keep your momentum going.
Pay for a fitness class. If you can’t make fitness work on your own, give yourself the incentive of having spent money on it. Having to pay for a fitness class ahead of time may help you get there often enough to kick-start your fitness habit.
