Fitness is not just a habit. It is a lifestyle, one that requires commitment and dedication so don't let monsoon dampen your spirits. Reebok Master Trainer Gagan Arora encourages you to keep your body engine fueled every day, with these simple things to keep in mind during rainy days.
Run those miles: The body is waterproof so do not fret to take those extra laps in the rain. An outdoor workout keeps the body metabolism going and helps you stay fit and energised.
Stay active through the day: If heading out in the rain is not your cup of tea, workout indoors. But make sure you get your daily dose of fitness. Pack in a short 30 - 40 minutes schedule that includes a mix of squats, push-ups, planks to keep you active for the day.
The ‘right' gear: Wear bright coloured fitness gear and socks to lift your mood.
Monsoon gateways: Take a break from your routine and unwind with a quick getaway during the rains. Plan a fun ‘Fitcation' that includes long walks and fun outdoor games with family and friends to stay active, energised and light this monsoon.
Vitamins are vital: Add vitamins to your diet to keep infections at bay and maintain your energy levels. Get enough rest, stay indoors and relax if not feeling well. Apart from homemade food, add seasonal fruits and vegetables along with lean meat and legumes to your diet.
Yoga can be performed both indoors and outdoors: Select an airy spot in your house practice simple asanas to keep yourself fit. Yoga also helps reduce respiratory problems that are very common during the monsoon season.
