How to stay fit during the 6 weeks holidays

How to stay fit during the 6 weeks holidays!

The kids are off school for a whole six weeks and you feel like your time isn’t your own anymore and you have fallen out of routine. Sound familiar? DON’T PANIC!! I know you have worked hard but with a few of these simple tips to follow, you can ensure that you stay on track and don’t undo the progress that you have made!

 

Set yourself a goal

You may be out of routine but that doesn’t mean that you can’t have a clear and concise goal to work towards. Not only will this give you something to focus on but you are more likely to achieve a set goal than to just vaguely establishing a routine.

This can be something as simple as;

  • Attending the gym twice a week
  • Attending a class or joining a local bootcamp or fitness weekend
  • Going out for a long walk with the family more often
  • Not indulging on the kids snacks!

Spend time in the kitchen

This may seem a boring one but think about it, when was the last time you weren’t rushing in from work, grabbing something quick to feed yourself and the family or bunging something in the microwave?

Take the time you have to fall in love with cooking again and batch cook to make it easy for yourself on your busier days. You can even get the kids involved!! Most kids love to cook, it’s hands on, it’s messy and there’s plenty of room for creativity, not to mention a sense of achievement at the end. Teach your kids this life skill and you really will set them up for life, combine it with making their meal and you’ve set them up for the day too (https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/howto/guide/top-10-tips-cooking-kids)

Involve the Family

Just as you might involve the whole family by cooking healthier meals for everyone, you can also get them excited about working out.  With the kids off school it can be hard to find time to workout, so try to find fun activities that gets everyone out the house and active together.  Knowing how to stay fit during the holidays is always going to be challenging but try going on bike rides or hikes, followed by a picnic or even take the whole family swimming.  The options are endless!

Get your workout done early morning

The kids are off school so they will want that lie in probably just as much as you do but take that quiet time to get your workout done. Whether it be outdoors or a home workout to set you up for the day at least you can use this alone time without the kids shouting for your attention or trying to escape whilst you’re doing your downward dog. If you are struggling with fitness why not check our online personal training offers or ladies fitness retreats and bootcamp holidays.

Summer fitness and gym alternatives

Summer fitness and gym alternatives

It’s that time of year again, and throughout your journey for the typical “beach body” you’ve found yourself unmotivated and hating the weekly grind that you manage at the gym. Perhaps you’re visiting your local gym 2 to 3 times a week, while also working out at home, and not seeing any results. Maybe you’re someone who has tried every diet, fad or otherwise, under the sun, with no success.

In the end, it comes down to pushing your body to new levels while supporting it properly.

Summer fitness doesn’t need to be like torture, and you don’t need to attend your local gym alone or work out rigorously at home to get fitter. There’s a plethora of summer bootcamps and weight loss weekends all over the UK who are more than happy to accept anyone looking to turn their life around and start a journey to a better version of themselves.

What is a residential bootcamp retreat?

Whether it’s a bootcamp weekend or a bootcamp course, these intensive training courses have swept across the world for the last few years and can be one of the most effective ways of kick starting weight loss and fitness for any individual. There are UK bootcamps that are for beginners, as well as bootcamps abroad, and ladies bootcamps. These training programs are designed to build strength and fitness through a variety of intense group intervals over a  1 hour period at a time.

Can I attend a ladies only bootcamp?

Most definitely! There’s actually a huge market for ladies bootcamps and bootcamps that cater specifically towards being more accessible as female bootcamps. This is because women don’t lose weight and gain muscle in the same way men do, and some feel a lot more confident around their own gender.

What is a weight loss or fitness retreat?

Weight loss retreats and fitness retreats work a little differently to bootcamps. Instead of attending your bootcamp in the UK and just attending that hour a day, you would be taking yourself away from the hustle and bustle of city life, most likely to a remote area in the UK or somewhere abroad.

Are holidays for weight loss really a thing?

Indeed, they are. With a weight loss or fitness retreat or even a bootcamp abroad, you can escape for around a week to a beautiful place where you’ll spend several hours a day really pushing yourself in an intensive training camp. What you do with the rest of your time is completely up to you.

Holidays like this typically offer several types of package, raging from self-catering to all-inclusive retreats.

Interested in us?

Here at Motivate Bootcamp, we offer ladies bootcamps both in the UK and abroad. At the moment, we have several packages available from our weight loss holidays in Portugal, as well as our 2-day and 3-day UK bootcamps.

We do our best to make all of our bootcamps as accessible for ladies as possible, which means that we offer our fitness retreats and bootcamps in some of the most beautiful locations both in the UK and abroad.
