Back to School Back to Workout

With the long school summer holidays coming to an end parents can finally get back into a normal routine and get back to working out again.
Lots of people find it difficult to maintain any kind of structure during the summer break while providing a part time taxi service for their kids, holidays abroad, and just having guests around the house can prove distracting and your commitment to fitness can go astray.

Local fitness expert Adam Barnes, 29 from Reading Boot Camps has 5 top tips on how to put the summer lull behind you and get back to eating and living healthily.

“It can be hard to get back into the flow of your workout routine, once you stop for a few weeks your body takes a break and when you try to get back into the swing of things it’s not used to the rigorous exercise so It’s important that you realise your body isn’t going to be at the same level of fitness it was before the time off”.

“Don’t get frustrated with yourself when you can only run for 5 minutes before you’re breathless. Stick at it and within a couple of weeks you should be back to your previous fitness levels.” says Adam

“There are ways to make the transition easier for anyone who’s had a break from regular exercise and want’s to start a workout programme again.”
