Taking Your Workout Routine Back to School
Just because summer is ending doesn’t mean it’s time to let your beach body go. Falling back into less active habits is too easy as the weather gets colder and darker. You can stay in shape as the seasons change by making a few adjustments to your workout routine. Early autumn is also an opportune time to consider a body sculpting procedure: you’ll have plenty of time to recover before breaking the bathing suits back out for winter vacation.
Take it Inside
A gym or studio membership can revamp your routine when outdoor summer activities are no longer an option. Access to equipment and classes means you can try a variety of exercises and customize your workout. Many places offer back to school specials, especially if you live near a college or university.
Another indoor option is exercising at home: a quick and cost-effective solution. All you need is a set of free weights and a mat, and the workout world is your oyster! You can try YouTube yoga classes, calisthenic routines or resistance training. Plus, you can squeeze in a 10-minute ab workout or a few weight lifting reps in between work, errands and after-school activities.
Fresh Fall Trends
A 2017 survey by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) identified some hot ticket fitness items for this year. Try these suggestions if you want your fall workout routine that’s ahead of the curve.
Wearable technology is on the rise, with options for every lifestyle and budget. Smart watches, wristbands and clip-on pedometers can help you keep track of your daily activity and ping you with reminders to take a walk, drink more water or get to sleep on time. Your smartphone can also be a useful tool for monitoring your health. There are endless free/ premium fitness apps that can help you track your calorie intake and workout reminders.
The ACSM survey also identified body weight training and HIIT routines as 2017’s up-and-coming workouts. These are ideal for keeping in shape this season — both require minimal equipment, can be done indoors or outdoors and are geared towards achieving a toned, sculpted physique. HIIT workouts are also becoming increasingly popular in the form of classes offered at local gyms and studios.
Boost Your Fitness Confidence
Now that you’re back in a routine and full-coverage clothes, it’s a good time to consider a fat reduction surgery or body sculpting. At Princeton Plastic Surgeons, our procedures have incredible results for patients who use these methods in conjunction with regular workouts. Cosmetic fat reduction can help you feel more confident about your body and bring you even closer to reaching your fitness goals.
Whether you’re stuck with stubborn cellulite or your weight loss journey has left behind sagging skin, Princeton Plastic Surgeons has a procedure that’s right for you.
CoolSculpting noninvasive body sculpting is perfect for removing small areas of fat without the hassle of post-surgery recovery time. If you’re in good physical health and your back to school schedule prevents you from taking the time for an invasive procedure, call us to find out what CoolSculpting can accomplish for you.
Liposuction and cellulite reduction are also quick appointments that can work with a busy schedule and have minimal recovery periods. They do, however, result in light bruising and require the use of compression garments for a few weeks following your procedure. Take advantage of the sweater weather, and avoid the need to wear medical-grade Spanx to the beach.
A tummy tuck surgery can make a world of difference if you’ve lost a lot of weight quickly or you’re dealing with post-partum changes to your body. These procedures require rest and result in slight scarring, so the cooler months are an ideal time to get them done: you won’t miss out on all those pool parties, and your scars can heal under cover of cozy layers and out of the damaging sunshine.
You can achieve an A+ workout routine this fall with adaptable exercises and new fitness trends. If it’s time to renew your confidence with a body sculpting procedure, call Princeton Plastic Surgeons at 609-910-1114 to schedule a consultation today.
