5 Unusual Places You Can Go To Get An Amazing Workout

The gym is not the only place where you can go to get your days workout in!  You can go to…

  1. The Park:  The benches and fences make some great make shift equipment
  2. Living Room:  Grab some dumbbells and/or resistance bands and get going!
  3. Backyard:  Great for a quick body weight workout!  Do you have heavy planters?  Throw them up for some overhead squats.
  4. Bleachers/Stairs:  They can turn into a real life stair master….and just like the stair master it can get real very quickly!
  5. The beach:  Walking, let alone running in the sand can be a major workout!  Even swimming in the ocean.

Would love to know the most interesting places you all have worked out at!

Get LetlerFit the Personalized Way

With the launch of the NEW LetlerFit.com I now officially publicly advertise my customized online training.

If you read yesterday’s blog post you know that I touched on the major differences between my e-book guides and personal training.

If you can check off any of the following I definitely recommend my online personal training:

  • Have any mobility limitations from past or current injuries
  • Have any diagnosed medical condition
  • Have specific goals
  • Want a training program that is 100% customized for your body and fitness level (everyone is different!)
  • want guidance and accountability

All of my clients begin with my online Needs Analysis (i’ll be touching up on this tomorrow).  What may differ between one client and the next are the different packages available:

  • Just the program:  This is for someone who has a good idea about how to perform the exercises and wants a program to cater to them and any specific goals or needs, but also does not want the coaching or accountability
  • Weekly Check Ins:  Your program will come with a 60 minute weekly check in to go over any questions, video critiques of you performing your exercises, etc.
  • Unlimited Coaching:  This is for the person that wants full access to me during the month of training to ask questions, record and send videos to, while still getting a personalized program

5 Top Apps To Help You Get Fit

  1. My Fitness Pal:  It hands down my favorite way to track food.  While the major con is it does not teach people about ho important macronutrients is in making up total calorie intake for the day it does a pretty great job at estimating total calorie needs as well as macronutrient and micronutrient needs depending on the persons goal.  The food library is also the most complete I have seen, you can even go out to eat and enter a popular restaurants menu and it will pop up!  Do NOT use it to input calories burned….it gives you 10x what you actually burned…Also, For those who wish to get more specific about nutrient timing you can get the premium app and set nutrient needs for each meal.  With premium you can also set up specific macros.
  2. My Wod:  While I no longer crossfit I do still use this app to track my weight lifting records and as a timer.  You can set it up for a tabata, standard, coundown, or interval timer so it makes life easier by providing a timely beep.
  3. Fooducate:  While this app can double as a food diary it is not as complete as my fitness pal.  Where this app is amazing is that you can scan any barcode at the grocery store or look up the food and it will give the food a rating from A+ to F and tell you why that food got that rating.  It is a great tool in teaching people what to look and look out for at the grocery store.
  4. Daily Water-Drink Tracker:  For those that struggle to remember to drink water and stay hydrated this app helps you track your water and will send you reminders to drink water if you are slacking for the day.
  5. Map My Run:  Every blue moon you may find me out on a run.  This app tracks distance, time, pace, and routes for your running or walking bouts.

3 Fitness Products Every Fitness Enthusiast Should Own

There are so many fitness products on the market right now it’s so hard to distinguish which are actually useful from which are a scam.  My personal top 3 necessities are:

  1. Gallon Gear:  Because staying hydrated is an important part of overall fitness, I have found that gallon gear helps me the most.  Why?  I hate luke warm water after a while and during long school days or long days at work my gallon jug gets warm or my water bottles that keep my water cold get annoying because I have to refill a million times a day.  The great thing about gallon gear is it’s a little slip cover for the gallon jug that keeps my water cold the entire day and has a convenient pocket for my phone and keys.  They have a bunch of fun colors for people with vibrant personalities and more neutral colors for those who prefer to stay low key.  Gallon Gear Coupon Code: MELISSALgallongear banner
  2. Seat Hoody:  This is another go to product for me as I sweat like a maniac and hate that sticky feeling on my car seat and skin….plus it’s kind of gross.  What I love about seat hoody is, it’s an easy on and off, it’s machine washable, and keeps your car seat from getting nasty.  Also convenient for beach days!  Seat Hoody Coupon Code: LETLERFIT15046803_1716258232035145_6260706190234222592_n(1)
  3. Set of Dumbbells:  A set of dumbbells is also a necessity as sometimes we just can’t make it to the gym for whatever reason.  Dumbbells are so versatile they make for great at home workout equipment and take virtually no storage space.  I got my personal set on amazon! Click Here:

Breaking a Sweat

letlerfit

Does sweating really define how good of a workout you had? Most workouts leave you sweating so much it looks like you just walked out of a pool. But does that sweating mean that it was a great workout and you burned a good amount of calories? There is a common misconception that how much you sweat determines the amount of calories you burn, which isn’t always true.

Sweating is one of the many ways your body keeps you cool and prevents itself from overheating. When you exercise, your body heats up, stimulating your sweat response. The sweat then evaporates off your skin into the air, and you cool yourself down. However, everyone is unique and so is their sweating. While some people sweat in abundance others hardly sweat at all and might glisten.

We often associate sweat with exercise, and that is not the case. No matter how much or how little you sweat, it doesn’t correlate with how hard you worked out or how many calories you burn.  If you’re trying to lose weight don’t focus on how much you’re sweating, focus on increasing the intensity of your workout and maintaining the routine of working out.

How to Have Fun While Working Out

People who enjoy their workouts are rewarded with many of the health benefits that come with breaking a sweat here and there. Sweating doesn’t only benefit you physically, it also has a positive impact on your mental health. Working out doesn’t have to be a punishment; have a positive mindset and think of it as a reward!

A lot of women who haven’t considered exercising fun in the past find that working out with friends can make it feel more like a girls’ night out. By laughing and enjoying yourself during the workout not only does the time go by faster, but you also motivate each other to finish it through.

Working out doesn’t always have to involve a routine, so don’t be afraid to mix things up. By adding a monthly dance or kickboxing class to your routine, you will work out new muscles in different places that you might miss with your routine workouts.

Exercising outdoors not only increases your engagement but it also helps you feel more energized. By changing your scenery, your workout will fly by as you take in new sights. If you’re bored with your gym or constantly running on the treadmill, go outside and take that jog on the beach.
