You’ve got your fiancé by your side, you’ve picked out the perfect venue and you’ve set a date. Next on your checklist? Your dream body. If only that were as easy as selecting what flowers to carry down the aisle. Luckily, getting lean and toned is completely possible with a little planning and determination. It can be daunting figuring out how where to begin, but we’re here to help! Try out these five ways to get in shape for your wedding day in no time:
It’s never too late to get in shape for your wedding, even if it’s just months away. Here at our West Loop gym, you can sign up for our Wedding Panic bootcamp, which consists of three months of unlimited classes and 12 one-on-one personal training sessions. High intensity interval training will help you shed calories fast by combining cardio and strength exercises that work a variety of muscle groups.
Grab a few friends (like your bridesmaids) or make some new ones by enrolling in group fitness classes. Not only is group fitness a great way to blow off some of that wedding planning stress, it’s an effective way to see the results you’re looking for. Group fitness classes offer variety and are led by expert instructors that are there to help you every step of the way.
You don’t have to put yourself through severe diets in order to see results.Instead, make a few easy
changes. For instance, swap regular yogurt for Greek yogurt, which contains less sugar and more protein to aid in muscle development. Instead of spreading mayonnaise on your sandwiches, opt for avocado, which is just as creamy but offers healthy fats your body needs. Can’t bear to say goodbye to French fries? Try baked sweet potato fries for a guilt-free treat that is equally as satisfying.
Personal training is a great option if you have a specific fitness goal in mind. Maybe you really want to show off your arms in your wedding dress or you’d like to focus on tightening up your core. You can work one-on-one with your trainer to come up with an exercise plan that will target those specific areas and have you looking picture perfect for your upcoming nuptials.
While wedding planning is often exciting and fun, there are days when it can certainly be stressful and frustrating. Yoga is a great way to say goodbye to some of that stress so you can get back to planning feeling refreshed and ready to tackle anything. This low-impact exercise is easy on joints, builds strength and improves posture and flexibility.
