The hustle and bustle of the holiday season is almost upon us! “The most wonderful time of the year” provides an opportunity to enjoy holiday traditions with family and friends while unwinding and celebrating the end of another busy year. However, don’t forget to add yourself to your holiday gift list by giving yourself the gift of fitness! 
Check out a few tips below: 
  • Plan for Success: Set achievable goals to help keep you focused on your long-term fitness progression, even amid the holiday hustle and bustle! Take a look at the schedule posted on the Elysium Tennis website and pencil in your sessions for the week to help you stay on track! 
  • Fitness First: What’s an easy way to ensure your workout doesn’t fall to the bottom of your to-do list? Break a sweat first thing in the morning! Not only will you cross it off your list first thing, but the endorphin rush can help propel you through your other holiday errands and activities!
  • Maximize your Time: If your day won’t allow you to take your usual hour-long fitness class, try a high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workout to help you reap similar benefits in less time!
  • Be Flexible: If you can’t stick to your regular fitness schedule, try an alternative activity you enjoy. Who knows, you may even discover something you want to incorporate into your routine in the coming year!  
  • Put it in Perspective: If you miss a workout or indulge in a holiday treat or two, don’t beat yourself up. Consistency is key, so plan to get back on track the next day! 
While sticking to a fitness routine during the holidays may require some fortitude and flexibility, it’s not impossible, and the rewards are well worth it!
