Fall Fitness at The Mansions on the Park
At The Mansions on the Park, we’re excited to get into all the festivities of the fall season. With Halloween and Thanksgiving fast approaching, it’s important to prepare for all the delicious food; we also think it’s important to get down a physical routine. Residents of our Magnolia, TX apartment community are allowed to use our 24/7 fitness center. It’s fully-equipped with a cardio theater, free weights, and training stations. Use these to your advantage this holiday season!
In today’s blog post, we’ve pulled together some tips for getting the most out of your exercise time.
Make a Schedule
Whether you’re going to exercise daily or just a couple of times throughout the week, plan out what time you’re going to exercise, how long you want to exercise, and what type of exercise you’ll be doing. When these decisions are made ahead of time it will make it much easier to get up and get going.
Set Up a Support Group
Having a support group during a fitness plan can make all the difference in whether you continue with your new healthy habits or not. Find people who would be willing to exercise with you. On the days you don’t want to go run, your friend will be there to motivate you and vice versa. This will also keep you both accountable for completing what you’ve said you would complete.
Track Your Progress
Knowing how far you’ve come is motivating to keep up with your goals. Take time before you begin your fitness plan to weigh yourself, take pictures, journal, and/or use an app or Fitbit to keep track of progress. Use the form of tracking that correlates to why you began exercising. For example, if you want to lose weight, then weigh yourself throughout your plan. If you want to feel better and have more energy, keep a journal about how you feel each day.
Experiment With Exercise
You can find so many different forms of exercise these days — anything from dance classes, to jogging, to team sports. Besides using our fitness center, think about trying something new near your apartment. You might find that exercise becomes more enjoyable when you find the right type for you.
