How To Get Back Into The Swing Of Fitness

If you feel like you’re not reaching the goals you want as fast as you’d like, here are a few exercise tips to get you back on track in time for summer:

Accountability partner

  • Having a gym buddy helps keep the motivation high and routines fun!

Start slow

  • Burnout exists for real. Starting at a slower speed ensures less injury and lower chance of getting tired of the gym.

More reps, less weight

  • Lower weight decreases your chance of strain or injury. Plus, it’s easier to get through your reps when you’re focusing on counting.
