You’ve been fueling your body with grilled meat, fresh veggies, and protein shakes all week, and now you’ve earned a cheat day. You know what that means, time to indulge in your favorite foods! Now, I know what you’re thinking. You want to reward yourself for your hard work, but you don’t want to get entirely off track. Limelight Fitness is here to help. This hot new Manhattan gym allows you to workout in a unique atmosphere. Afterwards, you can grab a slice of pizza or a scoop of gelato in the same, convenient shopping center. Here are three ways to stay fit and still treat yoself:
Pilates Reformer Classes
Before you indulge in that treat meal, you may wake up feeling ready to strengthen your core, improve your flexibility, work on your posture, and build muscle. If so, Pilates Reformer classes may be perfect for you. With state of the art equipment and expert trainers, you’ll experience a fun and challenging workout with long-lasting effects, including a higher level of energy and balance. Sign up for a class and enjoy that pizza guilt-free.
Maybe your go-to cheat day food is ice-cream, but before you get a scoop of your favorite flavor, you may feel ready to tackle a good cardio workout. If so, what could be better than boxing? Not only will boxing workouts promote a healthy heart, but they also decrease stress, increase endorphins, improve hand-eye coordination, and boost confidence. Not to mention, it’s fun. Grab a pair of gloves and watch time fly.
When your cheat day comes, perhaps you’re the kind of person who likes to binge-eat, well, everything. (No shame in that, this is a judgement-free zone). You know a good workout beforehand can help to boost your metabolism, but you may need a little extra motivation to get moving. Look no further than group cycling. Not only will you get to be around a group of people who share your goals, but you’ll also have an instructor to challenge you and help you succeed. Cycling burns calories, promotes heart health, and gives you a full body workout. Afterwards, you’ll have totally earned that feast of treats.
Cheat days can be a healthy part of any nutritional plan. They can decrease the chance of binge-eating and remind you that you don’t have to be perfect all the time. Having a good workout on those days can be a great way to keep your fitness goals on track. At Limelight Fitness, there are many ways for you to show your body some love. Not to mention, pizza and gelato are just a skip and a hop away. If that’s not motivation, I don’t know what is.
