Staying on top of your Festive Fitness
So, its official! Christmas is just around the corner making this THE month for work parties, get-togethers and outings. Festive season can disrupt even the most consistent of fitness regimes. Use the following tips to avoid slipping off the training schedule and as a way to offset the food/booze fest.
Hydration is easy
It’s simple. To maintain optimum health and physical fitness:
• Drink fluids
• Preferably non caffeinated (but still counts)
• Eat water rich foods often. Vegetables and fruits (preferably low in sugar) are great to keep hydrated
• Avoid dehydration during a workout by drinking a glass of water an hour before training, during the workout as required and within an hour of finishing.
See you at the studio soon.
With healthy wishes,
Dmitri and the team.
Importance of Sleep
Sleep is a biological need and a function necessary for our body to thrive. It is the time when we regenerate and recover from the trials of the day before; rebalancing hormones, regenerating and building muscle, recovering strength etc. Long term lack of and poor quality of sleep is detrimental to health and can lead to a myriad of health issue such as weight gain, hormonal imbalances, cardiovascular issues and general deterioration of physical and mental health. Here are steps to take before bed to ensure a good night’s sleep that leaves you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated for the day ahead.
Build muscle to stay healthy.
Building strength and muscular mass is about functional health and better quality of life. Which is one of the main reasons why muscles are so important to the human body. The aesthetics is often a happy bonus. The type of training required to build strength and improve muscle composition is so important that we make it the backbone of every workout at Epoch Fitness.
