1. WAKE UP EARLY! I love getting my workout over with before I have time to talk myself out of it, before it gets too hot, before my busy life decides to take over! Starting your day with a quick workout is a fantastic boost because of all the endorphins you are sending to your brain are screaming “Hey! Wake up! Let’s have an awesome day today!”

2. DRINK LOTS OF WATER AND FUEL UP, PRE- AND POST-WORKOUT! Drinking a large (8-16 ounce) glass of chilled water first thing in the morning is a great way to get your metabolism burning and helps purify your internal system. This helps your body absorb nutrients easier AND makes your skin glow! Also, make sure you are consuming the adequate amount of protein and carbs pre- and post-workout to get the most out of your sweat session. I always have half of a Promax LS bar before a workout and half, after.

3. CHANGE UP YOUR WORKOUTS! Take advantage of the summer by going on new hikes, kayaking on lakes you’ve never visited, or taking your bike or inline skates out on an adventure. Changing up your workouts will remind you that working out should be fun and will keep you from getting bored.
