It’s almost time to turn your clocks back an hour, which means many individuals will look forward to an extra hour of sleep. However, at the Y, we encourage our members to take advantage of that extra hour by jump-starting their fitness routine when Daylight Savings Time officially ends this weekend.
Fall Session 3 will tip off on Monday, November 5. Here are some great tips to help you embrace a healthy lifestyle this fall:
Be Consistent- Although it may seem like a great idea to stay in bed longer, it’s important to keep your schedule consistent, including exercise times. Manage your fitness schedule accordingly. In the fall, keep your workout times as normal as possible. Working out too close to your bedtime can make it harder for you to fall asleep.
Join a Class- It’s the perfect time to start a new class at the Y. Take advantage of the many different fitness opportunities available at the Y. Group exercise classes will help you keep a consistent schedule and you’ll be able to transition your workouts to indoors.
Swim Laps- Pools are popular in the summertime, but swimming can also be a great indoor exercise year-round. Dive in and swim some laps as part of your exercise routine. The Greater Joliet Area YMCA offers indoor lap pools at three of its branches. Plus, you can enjoy an afternoon or evening of fun with your family at the C.W. Avery Family YMCA indoor waterpark.
