If you have a personal trainer in Ellicott City, you might not think you need holiday fitness tips. After all, you plan to attend your training sessions as scheduled. What’s the big deal?
The holiday season is brimming with food, family, and fun – but it can also be stressful and time-consuming. What happens if you’re forced to miss a training session?
3 Holiday Fitness Tips for Ellicott City Residents
The best way to stay fit this holiday season is to attend all of your personal training sessions. If you can’t, however, try to incorporate additional exercise into your daily routine.
(1) Take an extra lap around the mall while holiday shopping.
Many people treat holiday shopping as a stressful chore – not an exercise opportunity. But walking and carrying bags can be great exercise for your arms and your legs. Next time you’re at Columbia Mall, take a few extra laps to burn additional calories.
(2) Mix the ingredients for holiday goodies by hand.
Do you normally use an electric mixer while baking? Making goodies the old-fashioned way can be an opportunity to burn additional calories. Whenever possible, put the kitchen gadgets aside and use your own two hands to mix ingredients.
(3) Participate in fun winter activities – both indoors and out.
It’s too early to tell if Howard County will have a white Christmas. So while you’re waiting to find out, participate in some fun winter activities. Go ice skating at an indoor or outdoor rink, or walk with your family to a local tree-lighting ceremony.
Beating Holiday Stress with Personal Training
In addition to helping you achieve your fitness goals, exercise can help you reduce the stress that can build up from baking holiday cookies, hosting your relatives, and fighting the crowds to get those last-minute, must-have gifts.
Don’t worry if you can’t attend all of your personal fitness sessions this month. Just try your best to incorporate more physical activity into every day.
