We hate to say it, but all good things must come to an end, including summer vacations. If you haven’t already guessed it, we’re setting out sights on what’s to come in the last half of 2022 and want to help you get psyched for a fitness-fueled fall. Instead of seeing this as a negative thing, embrace the challenge of seamlessly moving through seasons without a hitch and welcome this change with open arms! We’re here to share with you 5 ways to maintain your routine throughout the rest of summer and into the fall. Specifically, a focus on a number of practices and techniques you can adopt to build a mindset around consistency and motivation!
As always, we’re here to help you succeed, and want to highlight a few key perks that are included in your membership to help you crush your goals and develop healthy, sustainable lifestyles.
1. Change your mindset!
If you’re like us, you’ve spent the past couple of months indulging in beautiful weather, patio drinks, and beach days. While these aren’t over just yet, the end is near for summer 2022. Before you know it, the sun will be setting earlier, and the days will feel much cooler. Instead of seeing this as a negative change, embrace it with the mindset that a whole new season of outdoor activities and ways to stay active are upon us! Festive holidays are around the corner and a new year on it’s way. This mindset change allows for more opportunity for change and for growth.

4. Build your post-summer routine!
Begin by asking yourself important questions such as the following:
- What does the perfect fall morning look like for me?
- What family activities take place during the fall? (This includes kids’ programming and extracurriculars.)
- What travel plans do I have coming up?
- What does my community have to offer in terms of fall activities and amenities?
Becoming oriented with what your ideal fall looks like, in conjunction with upcoming plans and responsibilities, you’re setting yourself up for a successful season of healthy living.
This will also help you ease back into a post-summer routine of being mindful to eat better, sleep better, move better! Keep in mind that routines are a good thing. They are intentional, daily actions that see little steps huge leaps towards overall improvement. They help regulate your energy, your mood and overall well-being. In order to stay committed and accountable, find a buddy, sign up for a regular group fitness class, sign up for a challenge, give yourself a reward if you reach your goal!
5. Beat the heat inside!
As we reach the end of the summer season, we also see sky-high temperatures. Oftentimes too hot to get your workout done outside…
With this in mind, we shamelessly plug our air-conditioned facilities as a great option for getting back to your fitness routine. Our gym is a fabulous resource for all-kinds of workouts with best-in-class facilities to help you tailor your workout and crush some personal records. As the temps cool, people will head to the gym instead of working out outdoors – seeing as you’re getting a head start on your fall routine, you’re already well-versed in what your gym has to offer and can leave the guessing out of it. A huge win for those looking to beat anxiety in the gym and find a one-stop shop for all kinds of workouts!
6. Fall in love with FALL FOODS!
The fall harvest yields so many amazing, nutrient-rich foods which will put an extra pep in your step as they’re incorporated in your fall diet. Fall foods include carrots, kale, cauliflower, spinach, pumpkin, squash, turnip, and more. All have incredibly healthy properties and are a great addition to your diet.
Consider this an opportunity to source your very-own fall foods and get moving while nourishing your body with nutrients!
There are a ton of great steps you can take when prepping for fall! While we are focused on soaking up the rest of summer, consider adjusting parts of your routine to include some of the steps listed above so that you’ll adapt better once the season changes! Start shifting your mindset towards the number of opportunities coming your way as you close off 2022. Join our Fall Fitness Challenge to earn your chance at winning some amazing prizes while further working towards your goals!
Start envisioning what the next season looks like for you and consider the commitments coming your way as a new school year approaches and as summer comes to an end. With temperatures still on the rise, make sure that you’re keeping cool by visiting our air-conditioned facilities where you’ll be able to maximize your workout! Finally, make sure you’re taking full advantage of all that Fall has to offer! Get outside to enjoy the fresh air and get your hand on some of the fabulous fall foods that are harvested during that time of year!
We’re excited to see you crush your fall fitness goals and are here to support every step of the way! As always, our doors and DMs are open for questions. Can’t wait to see you FALL for fitness!
