How To Survive Spring Break 2017
Spring break will be here before we know it (it’s already here for my daughter and a lot of our friends), and we need to be ready! Kids have breaks from school, trips are on the books, and we still need to find time for our exercise. Without a plan, things can become hectic and stressful. The last thing we need on our plates is added stress when trying to enjoy times with our family and fun-filled vacations.
Plan, plan, and plan some more! Whether you are a natural planner or not, it is vital that we not let the task we need to perform get ahead of us. If we can provide some order to what we need to accomplish, we can set ourselves up for success and stay on track with our exercise routine.
Take Workouts on the Road
If a spring break trip is in your forecast, ensure not having any setbacks in your progress by finding ways to exercise away from home. Even if it is a change from your normal routine, instead of skipping exercise times just because you are away from home, make sure you do some type of workout. Beachbody DVD’s can easily fit into your suitcase and you will feel much better when returning to your normal routine because you did not go back a step. You could also utilize Beachbody on Demand, which is what I use all the time, and have your workouts streamed to your laptop, iPad, or iPhone while you are on the go. All you need is the internet service and your account (I like to call it my NETFLIX of workouts)! It works on Amazon Firestick, Roku, and Chromecast too! If you don’t have this awesome service already, you can sign up below for a 3-month service (with the first 30 days FREE), or, opt for the Annual VIP All-Access service.

Include the Kids
While the kids are off from school and will have their own activities they will want to do, try finding things you can do together. By “hitting two birds with one stone”, you can maximize your time management and your fitness. Getting to spend time with your little ones while maintaining your fitness agenda is the ultimate success and proves you were ready for this year’s spring break!
Some ideas are:
Walking/jogging (think intervals)
Indoor Trampoline Parks (bounce and jump fun)
Include them in a home workout that they will also like (mine likes the dance and bootcamp style ones from on-demand, such as Cize, Country Heat, and Shaun T’s Focus T25).
