Plan your workout for
early morning or later at night
For days when you know that the temps are going to be
outrageous, try waking up early to go for a morning jog, or wait until the sun
is setting to hit the outdoors. You’re beating the heat, but you’re still able
to get your workout on outside – something everyone wants in the summertime.
Save the outdoors for
your more relaxed workouts
Try a morning yoga session, or a brisk walk when you’re
outside in the summer, and save that tough stuff for the gym. If you plan on
running miles and miles, or even doing intense intervals, stick to indoors for
that stuff. You don’t want to let your body get overheated.

There’s nothing more refreshing on a hot summer day than

the pool can really give your body an intense workout. It’s a win-win – you get
to stay cool, enjoy the sun, and workout!
Head somewhere with
There are tons and tons of fun workout DVDs that you can
grab to workout at home. Anything from zumba to yoga, you’re bound to find one
type of exercise you like, and the best part is, you do them inside! If you
don’t feel like following along with a DVD, head to your local mall and turn a
shopping trip into a walking trip.
