How to Get Ready for Summer
Want to have an unforgettable summer with a body you’re proud to flaunt? Getting ready for summer is vital, but you shouldn’t do it at the last minute. Think ahead and get ready to hit the beach now with these five tips. Your summer is going to be extra hot with FizzUp!
1 | GET INTO A HEALTHY FITNESS ROUTINE
You’ve read it online, you’ve heard it on TV: exercise is the key to getting ready for summer, but are you still wondering why? The answer is simple: exercise significantly improves your everyday quality of life and shows what you’re physically capable of. Exercising twenty minutes every two days has a positive effect on your mood. It relaxes you, boosts your energy and leaves you less prone to stress. Regular physical activity promotes the secretion of hormones such as dopamine, endorphins and serotonin, the winning combination for happiness. It makes you feel good in both your body and mind and it connects you to your muscles as you feel them moving, functioning, tensing up and contracting during exercise.
A healthy fitness routine, like the one you’ll find with FizzUps programs, boosts the number of calories you burn in a day to help you lose weight and sculpt your muscles. Exercise is undeniably one great way to get you ready for summer. All you have to do is stick to your workout program (like FizzUp’s Beach Body*) and follow the trainer’s instructions to get lasting results.
2 | PREPARE YOUR SKIN FOR SUN EXPOSURE
Sunny days are already here and it would be a shame to wait until summer to finally enjoy them. Rather than suffer from sunburn, protect yourself from the inside out by eating a healthy diet. You’ll stay sun-kissed until September.
Eat foods high in beta-carotene, because this macronutrient prepares your skin and protects it from the sun. This will help it better absorb the sun’s rays and give you a healthy glow. Eat raw carrots, parsley or dried apricots, which are high in this macronutrient.
3 | TAKE CARE OF YOUR STOMACH
People often don’t pay enough attention to their stomachs, even though they deserve more. A few simple techniques make all the difference in getting you a flat stomach. The topic isn’t the sexiest one, but it still has to be mentioned when we talk about getting a flat stomach: don’t overlook your digestion. Poor digestion can cause bloating, constipation and sometimes even stomach aches, which can all give you a round belly. Staying hydrated is the first thing you should do if you want to get a flat stomach. Help your intestines do their job better by drinking 1.5 liters of water a day, but not all at once! Sip on it throughout the day.
You can also get a flat stomach by eating more fiber, which promotes healthy digestion. Seasonal fruits and vegetables contain it. Also avoid carbonated drinks, which do nothing to get you a flat stomach. Your gut is your second brain, so start taking better care of it. If you’re still constipated although you’ve stayed hydrated and have eaten enough fiber, try prunes. They’re the most effective when you eat one or two and drink some water afterward. Otherwise, they won’t help.
Doing core exercises regularly will also help you to get a flat stomach. All of FizzUp’s programs regularly give you exercises to tone your abdominal wall, improve your posture and shrink your belly. And if you want to focus on relieving back pain, check out FizzUp’s Posture program.
4 | SLIM DOWN YOUR PHYSIQUE
Changing what you don’t like about your body is another way to get ready for summer. Don’t let cellulite, a flabby stomach and/or a lack of muscle ruin your life.
