Challenging your body with movement is one of the best things you can do for yourself. Why? If it doesn't challenge you, it won't change you. The thing is, just as "all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy", all work and no play makes your workout dull, too.
You have probably noticed that your summer workouts sometimes feel extra challenging. While most of us love the warm summer air for leisure activities, it is important to understand why our fitness activities may feel like more of a struggle and that it is ok to take it down a notch when necessary. Here are some common reasons you may feel less than supercharged in the summer (or anytime of the year) and what you can do about it.
What exactly is a HiiT Jazzercise class? Is it about the fun music? The amazing energy? The funky dance moves? The motivating instructor who somehow makes you smile and work harder at the same time? Well, perhaps these are the Jazzercise "perks" of your HiiT class, but the essential experience of every HiiT "high intensity interval training" workout involves a repetition of short bursts of intense physical exercise (driving the heart-rate up) alternating with low-intensity heart-rate recovery periods. And we do it A LOT at Jazzercise. Not only do we offer four separate interval formats, but often we incorporate high and low intensity patterns within a single choreographed routine!
Hellooo spring! As the days get longer and the temperature gets a little warmer, we often feel like we are waking up from a long winter's nap. Hibernation has its merits (there is nothing quite as restorative as a good night's sleep, after all) but there is something so invigorating about the dawn of a brand new day and the freshness of a brand new spring season.
