We know it’s hard to tell based on the weather, and you’re still determinedly stuck in hibernation mode, but spring is the perfect time to start working on your Summer Slimdown! It’s time to steer away from the delicious cookies, holiday drinks, and extra carbs you’ve been indulging in the past couple months. Make this the year you stick to your New Year’s Resolutions (you know, the ones you made just a few weeks ago…) and lose the extra pounds in time for summer.
How far away is your big summer break trip? Say you want to lose the stubborn 15 pounds of fat that are hiding under your winter layers. Your goal is to lose 1-2 pounds a week, still, think you have plenty of time? Probably not…
Don’t be discouraged! Check out 8 different tips and tricks to start your Summer Slimdown.
1. Try a Group Fitness Class
Group Fitness Classes are included in your membership, so take advantage of them! Issaquah Fitness offers a wide range of classes like Cycle, Yoga, Zumba, BodyPump and more. There is sure to be a class that fits your busy schedule!
2. Go For a Swim!
It’s probably still a little too cold to take a swim in the lake, so why not use our pool? We offer Adult Swim Training Monday – Thursdays from 6-7am, or just check the aquatics schedule to see when you can get some lap time in!
3. Take a Hike
As the weather warms up, go for a hike around Cougar Mountain, or all the way up Rattlesnake Ledge. Hiking is a great way to get outdoors, and still burn those calories!
4. Join a Sports Team
There are plenty of intramural, non-competitive leagues for all kinds of sports! Head next door to Arena Sports and ask about joining a soccer team, or visit your city website to see what else is offered this spring!
