Purlife Personal Training Tips

It’s the time of year that the Holidays are starting to roll around, and whether you want to surprise friends and family with a new you or continue to evolve your fitness lifestyle, the fitness professionals at Purlife Delray Beach are here to help you on your fitness journey. We’ve put some together a few simple, but important personal training tips that will help you through what for most of us can be a time of greater temptation with all of that special someone’s fantastic holiday home cooking increased scheduling difficulty and traveling due to hectic holiday activities.

Personal Training Tip: Diet is About Moderation & Balance!

There are bound to be special foods and treats that you encounter during your Holiday travels that you wouldn’t ordinarily eat, or that just aren’t readily available during most of the year. We’re not saying that you need to say no to Grandma’s special mashed sweet potatoes or your Uncle Carl’s apple pie, but maybe only eat one helping instead of the customary two or three. Our holistic approach to a healthy lifestyle at Purlife applies to more than just exercise and fitness. We promote health not only through exercise but diet as well. This doesn’t mean that you can’t indulge your cravings during the Holidays; it just means that you should moderate and make healthy choices. Try not to stray too far from your normal healthy diet and don’t overeat if you do indulge. If you get off track during the holidays, don’t despair or be too hard on yourself. Regret is wasted energy, instead be proactive about it! We can also help you get back on track with our healthy, fast, and environmentally sustainable restaurant Purgreens. We have healthy meals that we can custom tailor to your dietetic needs and goals.

Holiday Personal Training Tip 2 : Maintain

Maintain your normal workout schedule. To keep yourself healthy and your level of motivation high, we recommend that you stick to your normal workout routine. Even though the demands on your time may seem greater, there is nothing in your life more important than YOU! Purlife reminds you to come in and workout. As personal training tips go, this may sound obvious, but you would be surprised how many people forget to take care of themselves during this hectic time of year.

Purlife Personal Training Tips-Tip #3: Don’t Freak Out!

Life can be overwhelming at any time, but during the Holiday Season, it may seem even more so. Increased demands on your time pull you out of your normal exercise routine. Your diet slips a bit. Next thing you know, you’ve gained a few, or several, pounds and you ‘just don’t feel right.’ Don’t panic! Keep calm, and carry on! This is one of the most important one of our personal training tips. Know that thing happen and that with some refocusing, determination and effort you can get back on track and resume your normally healthy lifestyle.
