Stretch it Out
Your muscles are going to need a little TLC with all your new activities. Take a cue from our furry friend below and stretch it out! Build a 5 minute warm up and cool down into your exercise routine to keep those muscles happy and injury-free.
Join a Team
This is taking working out with a friend to a whole new level. Joining a municipal or gym team sport is a fun way to meet new people and play your favorite gym-class or high school sport again! (We’re guessing these penguins are on a track team!)
Take a Break
The biggest mistake made by both rookie and experienced exercisers alike is working too hard. Give your body the rest it deserves to maintain a healthy balance. Can’t skip the gym? Go for a less strenuous activity like yoga or a low-impact swimming session.
