Taking a break can be good for you.
The holidays are coming and how are you going to juggle everything from family, social events, cooking, shopping and even the wrapping? During this festive period, it is often difficult to make exercising a priority. Please don’t beat yourself up over this, as taking a break from your workout routine is not a bad thing and chances are that you will probably more than make up for it in the New Year.
Recovery is important for both the mind and body and breaks are encouraged by fitness professionals, trainers and instructors. The short period of time out will not make you fall horrendously out of shape. Use the additional time to turn your focus on feeling good.
Whilst you are resting and eating during the festive season, your body will get to work repairing tissue damage, strengthening your heart and other muscles, replenishing depleted fuel reserves and allow greater transportation of oxygen throughout your body. As long as the rest period is not too long then you be allowing the body to become stronger and more efficient.
Remember not to become over familiar with your couch. Take a walk, dance and party instead of your normal routines. Don’t feel deprived of your regular workout routine, think about the added motivation and strength you will have upon your return.
The View studio will be closed from the 24th December 2017 to the 7th January 2018. You can book in your classes for Monday the 8th January onwards. (Membership credit from the closure will carry over to the month of January.)
All that is left to say now is that we hope you are able to fit in your classes till Christmas Eve, that we will be looking forward to seeing you all return the week commencing Monday the 8th January, and in between, enjoy and benefit from the break.
