Get more out of the holidays with fitness tips designed to give you more energy and less stress.
The holidays are an exciting time of year for all of us here at Orangetheory Fitness, now open in West Des Moines, IA! But did you know that a lot of people put their fitness goals on hold during this season?
Some of us sacrifice our ‘me time’ in efforts to organize the perfect holiday experience for loved ones. Others find it all too easy to indulge in holiday treats—with a majority of Americans experiencing guilt for their eating habits over the holidays.
You absolutely deserve to enjoy all the best holiday cheer, and remembering to prioritize your fitness and health can help you get the most out of this most wonderful time of the year. As we get ready for the oncoming holiday season, here are a few ways you can keep your fitness routine #HolidayProof at OTF West Des Moines.
1. Plan ahead
Holiday to-do list overwhelming? Our to-dos only seem to multiply the closer we get to the holidays.
Plan ahead instead of letting stress sneak up on you. If you wait until the holidays to think about your workout schedule, you might be tempted to put fitness on hold so you can get through everything else you need to do. But there’s always time in your day for a 60-minute Orangetheory workout!
Pre-book your classes as soon as possible to make that commitment and stick with it. Many of our OTF West Des Moines members have started to see how much continuous energy that one hour of work provides. Sticking to your Orangetheory schedule through the holiday hustle and bustle can make it easier to get through all the busiest days of the season.
2. Workout wherever you are
If you’re traveling for the holidays, you’ll be missed by our Orangetheory West Des Moines fit fam! But we want you to enjoy the Orange Life wherever you go. Did you know that Orangetheory Fitness has more than 1,000 locations worldwide?
Use the OTF studio locator at www.orangetheoryfitness.com/locations to find a home away from home. You’ll instantly be welcomed as a member of the Orange Nation with a warm smile by new, friendly faces at every Orangetheory you visit. We’re all family, joined together by our common love of OTF!
Just keep in mind that different classes and times may fill up faster at different studio locations, so pre-book now and add the energy of Orangetheory to your holiday trip.
We want to hear all about it when you get back!
3. Focus on friends and fam
For many of us, the holidays are about spending time with loved ones: partner, kids, relatives, friends—and don’t forget your family here at OTF West Des Moines!
Your fitness journey is your own, but it can be especially fun to find a workout buddy during this joyous season as we enjoy the 12 Days of Fitness together and deck the studio halls with holiday cheer.
Know someone who’s been talking about joining Orangetheory or have a special someone you’d like to share the gift of Orange with? ‘Tis the season to sign up! Just for the holidays, we’re offering half off their first month of membership. See us at the front desk for details!
4. Start on your “New Year’s” resolutions today
The end of a year is a time for reflection. What did you set out to accomplish? How far have you come? What did you achieve? What do you need to focus on next year?
With a new year comes new resolutions, and for the fitness-conscious Orange Nation, many of our goals focus on exercise and health. But if you already know what you’d like to improve, and you’ve talked to your favorite OTF West Des Moines Coach about the best next steps to make it happen, why wait?
The new year is not the only opportunity to work toward a better you and get more out of life. Every day is a new chance to wake up, push your limits, go All Out, and crush your goals.
Focusing on your goals now, through the holidays, will give you extra strength and energy not only to overcome the season’s stress—but also to start off the new year with a deserved sense of accomplishment and confidence.
