April is MOVE MORE MONTH - join us to WIN free Pilates!
Every April, the American Heart Association promotes "Move More Month." Its aim is to encourage all Americans to take part in more physical activity and to try to do so on a more regular basis by incorporating it into your daily routine. The goal is to highlight the importance of physical activity as well as the benefits of movement for our overall physical and mental wellbeing.
Physical activity doesn't have to be all or nothing - it's not about a high-intensity class or an hour-long walk. Making small changes toward a more active lifestyle promotes a healthy body and mind. Make it a game to incorporate more movement into each day:
Play or walk outside with your children or pets
Have a dance party with your family (or alone!)
Do squats or lunges during a business call (with Zoom video off...)
Do tricep pushups while waiting for your coffee to brew
What are some new habits you can form to just move more? What activities do you enjoy? Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Take a walk after dinner each evening
Try a new type of class (love Pilates reformer, try a chair or Bodhi class!)
See if you can add 1,000 steps to your day or get 10,000 total steps per day
Exercise with friends - make your workouts fun and social
Is there a Pilates studio you've been wanting to try out, give them a call
