Fitness Meets Life
One thing I’m adamant about in my own fitness life is the way fitness slots in with my day to day goings on. Working out isn’t just something I do, it’s my lifestyle. I always try to figure a way to be active into my day. For me, that’s been the key to keeping going, staying motivated and setting new goals.
Integrating activity into everyday life can come in so many forms. Be it cycling to work or trying out some new exercises at home. I also really love to use social media to document and share my activity. I’m currently training for the Nike Women’s Marathon in San Francisco in October and I post an Instagram pic of my run each day. It’s nice to be able to look back on that once all the training’s over and see the places you ran. In December, I do a thing called ’80 Mile Month’ using Nike Plus. I set up a challenge on there with all my friends to get us to run a total of 80 miles (or more) during the month of December. Traditionally it’s a month during which it’s easy to slack off, so this is a fun way to get a little friendly competition going on and make sure we all get out and stay active.
Dinners with friends are now usually preceded by some sort of workout or a run. I’ll sometimes meet business associates by going to a workout with them first, then having a meeting.
So I wanted to see what you guys do to build fitness into your lives. Do you have a weekly workout with friends? Have you organised a lunchtime run club at work? Do you have competitions to see who can get the most Fuel points on their Nike Fuel Band? Let me know in the comments and maybe we can give each other some ideas on how to stay fit, social and interactive.
