Summer Bodies Start Now!

If you have a goal to get in great shape for the summer, here’s your friendly reminder that the clock is ticking! You may have heard that summer bodies are made in the winter, and that’s no exaggeration. It takes time and commitment to sculpt the long and lean physique you’re looking for, but we can help you get started. With some discipline, 90 days from now, you can feel a lot more confident in the skin you’re in, and we want to help you feel as fabulous as we already know you are!

Here are a few tips to help you get in shape for the summer:

Make a plan and lean on discipline, not motivation:

Let’s get right to it: through years of training countless members, we have seen that consistently showing up to class (in studio or online) 4 or more days per week will create the long and lean body you are looking for.

We know that’s a big commitment, and some weeks will be harder than others to step on the mat. That’s where your planning and discipline can kick in when motivation is lacking. Many of our classes are under an hour, and you deserve that time! Make a commitment to prioritize yourself and your health, and create routines that help you stick with it when you’re feeling tired or not in the mood. Pre-scheduling your classes for the week on Sunday evenings, laying out your workout clothes the night before, and keeping a water bottle in the fridge that’s ready to go are just a few ways you can cultivate a healthy and consistent habit of showing up on the mat.

Listen to your body when it comes to nutrition:

You’ll notice that your class attendance even begins to influence your food choices, and your body (if you are eagerly listening) will guide you: “drink more water! Less salt. Don’t choose the enchiladas – you know it’ll rise up in the middle of class!”  This self awareness helps you make better nutritional choices, which in turn will help you reach your fitness goals.

Don’t forget to take hydration into account as part of your nutrition, too. If you’re showing up for our heated studio classes, this is even more important. Proper hydration is about more than just getting enough water – it helps with muscle recovery, cell turnover, feeling full and even boosting your metabolism, so don’t skip out on it!

If you show up, choose fresh foods, get enough protein (which we can help guide you) and drink 75 + ounces of water, we promise you’ll see and feel the changes!

Keep a journal and celebrate small wins:

Speaking of listening to your body, we are big believers in tracking, and that includes your mindset. It doesn’t have to be complex, either. We love a good ‘ole journal for this, and we encourage keeping track of some key metrics as well as how you feel. If you’ve had a RECENTER session with April or you’ve been around YS90 for awhile, you may already know how much we love and recommend My Little Black Book for this!

Yes, it’s important to note the numbers like your starting weight and measurements, but documenting how you feel when you work out (or when you don’t work out!), the changes you’re noticing, the foods that make you feel good, and your mindset will all help you see how far you’ve come. Celebrating small wins is key to staying on track with your goals, and keeping a journal is a great way to do that.

Be flexible and give yourself grace:

It’s not easy to stay on track, especially during the oh-so-busy Spring season! All of these things are important to cultivating consistency and working towards your goal, but don’t forget to give yourself a little grace and flexibility too. We love our OnDemand library for those busy weeks when we just can’t get to the studio, or when we’re traveling and on the go. And if you miss a class or two in the process, don’t sweat it – just hop back into your routine and keep making forward progress!
