Our fav fitness tips from #healthyhuman ambassadors
1. Mix up cardio and strength training
“Lately, I’ve been loving mixing up cardio with strength training. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m kind of a cardio kween—I love me a nice longgg run. But sometimes I get sick of the same ‘ol routes, so I’ve found myself opting for shorter runs (2-7 miles vs 5-10), and doing f45 training daily. My favorite thing about #f45training is that no workout is EVER the same.”--@kalemepretty
3. Get a positive mindset
“Mindset. It is all about mindset.
Sometimes (often) you will hear a coach say it's all in your head or that it's a mental game. Probably because a lot of it is!
Yes you have to put in the hard work and train properly. But if you are already convinced in your head that you can't do it - guess what? That workout may be worse than you had planned. Your race will be tougher than if you believe in yourself.
So set your mind in a positive place and get ready, prepare and go.”--@kbhealthyandfit
4. Take on a challenge
“307 miles later and the Lake Michigan Challenge is complete! 🏅 I signed up for this challenge at the very end of July just for some extra motivation.”-- @moorekr3
6. Remember running is a privilege
“I found my stride when I focused on the fact that running isn't about training and racing ... It's about feeling alive, pushing yourself to the limit and enjoying the great outdoors.
Running is a moment of clarity and gratification. Running owes you nothing. Running is not a chore or punishment. It's a privilege.”--@milesandmotherhood
7. Relax--here's why:
“I'm not sure who needs to hear this, but RELAXING IS PRODUCTIVE!”--@breathesweateat
8. Add some speed workouts
“Started adding speed workouts into my training about a month ago and this is the first time I didn't feel like completely dying!”--@milesahead_worriesbehind
9. Get your nutrition in
“I think nutrition is so important to reaching our health goals. Now that doesn’t mean that you can’t treat yourself or indulge in your favorite things now and then...trust me I am all for a bowl of ice cream at the end of a rough day. For me the key to good nutrition (or any goal you have really) is mindfulness. Drinking a gallon of water a day and eating mostly veggies is a great way to start on your nutrition journey.”--@mallorie.deruyter
10. Be a healthy human
“Get your daily workout in, drink lots of water to rehydrate, be a healthy human!”--@chelefishcreations
