Have you been off your game for awhile? Have these last couple months been so busy that you haven’t “had the time” for fitness? If you don’t start now, then when? Fall is the PERFECT time of year to set new goals and begin a new fitness routine. In fact, here are 5 reasons to start a fitness routine RIGHT NOW:

1. Winter weight gain begins now: with year-end work deadlines, it’s easy to put fitness & clean eating by the wayside. Carve out extra time in the morning to exercise & prepare healthy meals. Before long, it’ll be bikini season again!

2. Fall is perfect weather for outdoor workouts. Hit your local playground for some pullups, dips, swing rows, sandbox squat jumps and swing pikes!

3. It’s marathon season. Running inspiration is everywhere in the media and on people’s minds. Join in on the fun! Sign up for a late-winter or early spring half or full marathon to keep you training all winter long!

4. For people who suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), exercise and sunlight are the best ways to beat symptoms. Be sure you’re well-equipped with mittens, layers and a quality pair of boots!

5. Everyone knows that January is a bad time to start a fitness program: gyms are overcrowded, days are shorter and New Years resolutions are, frankly, a joke. By starting now, you’ll be ahead of the curve and those resolutioners will only add fuel to your fire!
