How to Get Active and Stay Active

The other day on my Instagram story I was talking about my workout goals and also about how to get back into fitness if you may have fallen off the wagon. We were having some great conversations and I wanted to keep it going so I thought I’d share a few tips on how to get back into a regular workout routine.
1. Think about working out as something you GET to do, not something you HAVE to do.
I have been active all of my life, I grew up playing volleyball and tennis and was also on the swim team so fitness has always been a big part of my routine but I know this is not the case for a lot of women. If you have never had a regular workout routine, fitness can be intimidating.
I think the number one thing you have to do is to stop thinking about working out as a chore or something that you are going to dread doing. Being active is such a gift! The fact that we can move and push our bodies is amazing! I know you may not love doing all of those squats while your buns are on fire but I promise you are going to feel SO GOOD after!
2. Set Weekly Goals for Yourself
I like to set weekly workout goals for myself. My schedule is so sporadic that sometimes, the next thing I know it's Thursday and I haven't worked out at all! Last week I had a goal to get in five workouts, I only got in four but that's okay! I acknowledge that I missed the mark and set my intentions for the next week. One of my weekly workouts is taking Angus on a new hike. Each week we scope out a new hiking trail and usually hit up a cute coffee shop after. I have been wearing these HOKA ONE ONE sneakers from Zappos and it seriously feels like I'm walking on clouds! They are amazing and I highly recommend if you do a lot of walking or running.
3. Don't be afraid to try something New
Get ready to try a bunch of different workouts until you find something that you really enjoy! I don't love running so that's not how I get my cardio, you don't have to force yourself to do an activity you hate.
Now get out there and get active! If you’re in LA hit me up in you need a workout buddy!
