Move It May is back! Next month we are going to put a big focus on fitness. It’s always important to focus on fitness but especially now during this time. There are many different ways you can focus on fitness no matter what level you’re coming in at. I’ll share a few ideas below. First, you’ll want to sign up for my free Monthly Fitness Challenge.

It’s important to stay accountable to others if you have big goals you want to reach.

Your Focus on Fitness
Like I mentioned above, it’s important to focus on your fitness. I would love to see you join my monthly fitness challenge and commit to getting healthier in May and beyond. Here are a few ideas to choose from to focus on fitness in May.
Indoor workouts are my personal choice. We are lucky enough to have a home gym (it’s our garage that we made over) and have a nice variety of fitness activities to choose from. Everything from rebounding, my favorite, spinning and boxing to workouts through Beachbody on Demand (you will love the variety here).
Peloton currently has a free trial for their app as of 4/28/20. We don’t own a Peloton bike but we have two spin bikes. Their app has thousands of workouts including strength, outdoor running, yoga, bootcamp and more. I’m also looking into the Walk Away the Pounds app (I love their workout videos). Plus there is a rebounding/mini trampoline on demand app I’m interested in too. As you can see, there is SO much out there, no excuses!
By the way, I did not start out with all of this. Walk Away the Pounds DVD’s is how I first lost over 80 lbs. We won’t talk about the fact, I gained it all back. On a positive note, I’m down almost 30 lbs since June 2019. I’m thrilled with my low carb lifestyle and my focus on fitness.
Did you know May is bike month? Cycling is a great outdoor (or indoor) activity. Kev has wanted a bike for a long time and we bit the bullet and bought him one for his birthday a couple weekends ago. It’s a beauty and he’s pretty cute too.
I have always wanted a cruiser bike like this one. Except I found an adult tricycle and feel I would be much more comfortable and balanced on one of those. They look like a lot of fun!
That would fit my personality too. They are hard to find as are the cruiser bikes right now. And they have 0 speeds. It seems like everyone is using this time to get outdoors and cycle. And they should be! For now, I workout at home. When Kev wants to ride his bike, I bring a book along and enjoy the great outdoors. I am totally cool with that.
Walking is probably one of the best exercises you can do. Why start a walking routine? To get in shape, lose weight and for most it’s the easiest thing to do. It requires no special equipment and is easy on your joints.
Grab a good pair of walking shoes and get a walking plan in place. I would recommend starting with 3 days a week and going from there. Keep track of your walks and other fitness in a fit journal. Start by walking around your own neighborhood. If you have a park, lake or walking trails nearby hit those up next. Or if you have a treadmill at home, use that.
Whether you’re walking to lose weight, get fit or enjoy the outdoors it’s the best overall exercise for your health in my opinion. What is your favorite place to walk?
Those are just a few ideas you can do to focus on your fitness for the Move It May challenge. Please share with us what ideas and goals you have for getting your fitness on in May. Have you joined the free Monthly Fitness Challenge yet? If not, get on that.
My goals for May:
- Rebounding/mini trampoline every day for at least 15 minutes (my goal for 2020) – proud to say I have done that for almost 4 full months!
- Spinning at least 3 times a week for 15+ minutes (or cycling outdoors if we find a bike for me lol)
- Walking (Walk Away the Pounds workouts, walking outside, etc.)
Your goals can be as big or small as you want them to be. Focusing on your fitness next month will make a huge difference in your life. I promise.
