Winter was pretty tough on many parts of the United States this year. The Midwest experienced a windchill factor of -30℉ and even -40℉ due to the “2019 Polar Vortex,” and areas of Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri, and other surrounding areas went through two “Bomb Cyclones” in less than a month. The weather was pretty crazy during the start of 2019, but we’re finally moving onto the true spring season.
If you embraced the inclement weather this winter by using your own mini fitness trampoline inside the comfort of your own home, we applaud you! If you braved your way to the local gym just to spend a miserable 40 minutes on the treadmill or elliptical, well, we’d like to enlighten you.
Leaps & Rebounds makes the highest quality rebounder fitness trampoline on the market to help people like you get in shape, and now that the nation’s weather is finally taking a turn for the better, it’s a great time to get moving. Besides, swimsuit season is just around the corner!
Get In Shape This Spring With A Rebounder Fitness Trampoline From Leaps & Rebounds
Spring is often regarded as a time of rebirth and renewal, and so it only makes sense to make some healthy changes in your life during this time of year. Here are some predictable but practical and extremely effective ways to get your health and fitness game back on track this spring season:
Drink More Water
Seriously. Drink more water. It’s that simple! All too often, people choose dehydrating soda or alcoholic beverages in place of water, and while these drinks are fine to consume in moderation, people aren’t drinking them in addition to water. Thus, the dehydration. And it doesn’t help that caffeine and alcohol are diuretics, too.
If you don’t already have one, get yourself one or two reusable water bottles. These are great items to take with you whenever you’re leaving the house, as you can refill them at any free water source. The use of single-use plastic water bottles is discouraged for obvious reasons, and you’ll pay off the cost of your fancy Hydro Flask or Nalgene bottle after several fill ups. So use it!
Adjust Your Diet
We can’t underestimate the importance of the fuel that you put into your body. You get out what you put in, and by this, we mean that you’ll have more daily energy and a better workout performance if you’re eating the right foods. It’s also really important to note that you need to be eating the right amount of foods, somewhere around that 2,000 calorie/day amount depending on your body chemistry, lifestyle, and daily activity.
Avoid processed foods whenever possible, and stick to cooking your own food with relatively minimal preparation — simple ingredients, simple foods.
Challenge Yourself To End Bad Habits
We all have our fair share of bad habits; it’s what makes us imperfect and, therefore, human. No one should expect themselves to be perfect, by any means, but the rebirth and renewal of spring is an ideal time to try and adjust any unhealthy habits that you’ve fallen into. Do you routinely use an e-cigarette at work? Do you opt for fast food every day during your lunch break? Have a soda craving that’s difficult to kick?
Breaking unhealthy habits is easier said than done, but you’ll also feel much better about your physical health and personal sense of confidence after you’ve stopped something that you’ve already felt guilty about doing.
Become A Morning Person
Now that the sun is rising earlier and earlier, and the mornings aren’t so bitterly cold in most places, it’s a great time to take advantage of the day before the day has even started. If you work a traditional 9-5 job, we strongly recommend rebounding on our mini fitness trampoline and doing other exercises to start your day.
Waking up earlier than normal isn’t pleasant, but that early boost of endorphins to start your day is a fantastic way to set yourself up for a productive, pleasant, and energy-filled day. Give it a try — you won’t regret once you notice how you feel later on in the day.
