When most people think of peak physical fitness and toned muscles they would associate that image with the warmer seasons of the year. That is of course understandable because you wouldn’t expect to see someone wearing beach wear, showing off their six pack abs and sculpted arms and legs, walking around the snow-covered streets of winter would you?
So with summer winding down as we move into autumn many of you will probably be taking a less intensive approach to attaining that beach body look now that it is time to start adding more layers of clothing instead of fewer. However we here at Prestige Boot Camp disagree with that notion and think there are plenty of reasons to be working on that classic beach body look this autumn.
For Starters, Think of Your Health!
While a lot of the initial appeal of working out for that perfect body comes from the superficial draw of being able to look your best in swim wear it is more than worth highlighting the advantages to your health that comes with regular exercise. This sounds obvious, and most of you are probably already aware of this when working out but to the people that work out for the sake of looking good tend to forget about this primary benefit.
It’s Easier to Maintain What You Have Achieved Instead of Starting From Scratch
Have you ever had a long layoff from the gym? Maybe you were injured, too busy, or you just didn’t think it was worth going because it was getting too cold to flex your Pecs at the beach? You start to have heavier meals and wearing thicker layers of autumn wear, and then before you know it that intense and disciplined work out regiment just isn’t happening like it used to, if at all; then you’ve got the harsher weather of winter (not to mention all the food of Christmas) and before you know it spring is upon you and thoughts of getting back in shape really start to nag at you.
Of course once you regain your resolve you also probably find yourself feeling like you’re basically starting from scratch as all that time immobile has left you weaker, slower, and less conditioned. It is a heavily demoralising position to put yourself in when it is so easily avoided by simply maintaining that workout routine through the colder months.
A Good Physique is Still Noticeable Under Autumn Clothing
Closing out by coming back to our first point about getting that beach body; getting in shape helps you to look good in beach wear, but remember that being in truly great shape will show even under a thick jumper. As long as you’re buying the right sized clothes to really extenuate your physique then you won’t have any trouble letting people know you take good care of your body while rocking a knitted sweater; and let’s be honest if you’re experienced with creating that summer body then you already know how to shop well for clothes that actually fit and don’t just loosely hang off of you.
