Fuel Your Body

Previous Post | Next Post

You wouldn't take your car out for a drive without gas, so what about your body? Like an engine, we need fuel to keep us going. Exercising on empty can make you feel weak and tired, causing you to slack off or even shorten your workout. For the stamina you need to maximize your workout, enjoy a healthy snack 1 to 2 hours before you begin. This will give your body the time to digest and avoid cramping. So, have that favorite, healthy snack, head outside or to the Y, and treat yourself to an energizing workout.
