Secure your Gym Time before the Half-Term!
As a parent, it can be hard to find some time for yourself, and you may find yourself letting things go because you’re tired or busy. With February half-term looming, it’s likely that you’ll have your hands full keeping the kids busy and entertained. So with this in mind, you may want to get as much gym time in as you can before the half-term holiday.
Here are some suggestions to help you get plenty of gym time in before half-term:
Find the right time
8-9 am is usually a quiet period, as most people have gone to work and most kids are at school. Otherwise, you could nip down before collecting the kids from school. These times are ideal as you can incorporate them into the school run and the gym will generally be quiet, so you’re not fighting for the equipment you want!
Take a class
At Simply Gym we have a wide variety of classes for you to choose from. Our class timetables include span throughout the week at mixed times, so you can pencil whichever one suits your busy schedule around work and the kids! From fun and dynamic Zumba and Body Pump classes to relaxing and rejuvenating Pilates and Yoga classes, you can choose a class that’s right for you!
Workout with a friend
38% of people find it easier to stick to their workout routine by arranging to go to the gym with a friend at a set date and time. This means you’re more likely to commit to that all important you-time!
High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) workouts are great if you have limited time! A 10-15 minute HIIT workout can energise you, get your heart pumping and release endorphins. You could even do them with our trainers at our HIIT circuits classes!
