New Season...New Fitness Routine....
Today is definitely the start of Autumn. There is that one day every year where I really feel the seasons changing from Summer to Autumn. The air feels colder today, the sky a little hazier and the trees are changing colour. My heating has gone on, my gloves, boots and snuggly hoodies have been pulled out from the back of my wardrobe. I have packed up my flip flops and floaty dresses and said goodbye to them for another 6 months.
Lots of my clients have noticed the same thing today. Many people have said how they see Autumn as a new start, more monumental than January 1st. It marks a new change. I think that is such a great way to look at it. Why not use this week to kick start your new exercise routine? Send me any comments and ideas of how you are starting a new fitness regime for the new season.
The Sweaty Betty Yoga club in Bath start back tomorrow and I will be giving them some great new routines, tips and advice for the new season. I am planning to use stretch bands for tomorrow's class as I always think using equipment adds a fresh dimension to a routine. Strechbands in particular are great for helping to support you in stretches and allowing you to reach that little bit further. If you are exercising at home, a stretchband is a cheap, safe and easily stored piece of equipment to update your usual routine.
Also, I am going to make the most of this colder season by snuggling into some of Sweaty Betty's great new cool down gear. This season's hoodies and layer tops are going to be my wardrobe staple and I will not only cosy up in them at home but will be wearing them whilst guiding my clients through their relaxation at the end of each class.
