As we prep for the hot and humid summer weather (depending on where you’re located), we’ve been thinking of how to tweak our at-home workout regimens. For instance, the heat is ideal for stretching, which is on point for our yoga and pilates practices!
As for staying motivated to keep up your fitness regimens this summer, Anna Chapman, yoga instructor on Joyn.co and size inclusion expert, notes, “My tip for staying motivated is shifting to feeling-based goals. When I work out to feel joyful, strong, and powerful I am unstoppable. Let go of the number metrics, they are joy killers!”
