The holidays can be a difficult time to keep motivation at full swing. With family in town and great food on the table, oftentimes keeping up with your workout routine can be a challenge. That is why we have compiled some simple ways to maintain motivation throughout the holiday season, even with all of the excitement and fun activities.
Here are some tips to keep up motivation and stick to your goals:

  • Make sure to maintain consistency with your gym schedule as much as possible, even if that means choosing a shortened workout just to get your blood pumping.

  • Try to plan for training when putting together your holiday schedule. It won’t seem as difficult to work in a half-hour workout if you’ve planned for it in advance.

  • If you don’t already, try to workout early in the morning. You can be done with your workout and ready for the day when the rest of the family is just getting out of bed.

  • Can’t get out of the house? Try implementing bodyweight workouts to maintain your routine until you can get back into the gym.

  • Get out with the family and enjoy some of Idaho’s great winter activities. From hiking to snowshoeing, skiing/snowboarding and more, there are plenty of ways to get out and enjoy Idaho in winter. Don’t forget about impromptu snowball fights and shoveling the driveway with the kids as ways to burn some additional calories.

Remember, Thanksgiving is a day to celebrate and enjoy with your friends and family. It is perfectly okay to enjoy this time and celebrate the hard work you’ve put in throughout the year. By enjoying the holiday completely, including the foods you love (even if they aren’t the healthiest), you can walk into the gym once the...

Many of us are familiar with Yoga as a method of exercise, relaxation, and stretching. While Yoga may be a very widespread method of exercise, many individuals aren’t familiar with Hot Yoga or what it involves. Hot Yoga traditionally consists of a 60-to-90-minute program featuring a series of varying poses and is held in a studio set between 95°F and 105°F. Humidity in the studio is also increased to reach upwards of 40%. For those who are trying Hot Yoga for the first time, you will want to make sure you are well hydrated. The first few times are going to be the most difficult, and if you ever experience dizziness or light-headedness be sure to take a break. Those who understand their limits and take the appropriate measur...
