Note from Judi

Spring is definitely in the air. The weather is getting warmer and everyone is looking forward to spending more time outdoors. Read through this e-zine carefully. We have some great specials you are not going to want to miss. If you wanted to ramp up your anti-aging game, now is the time to get in your microdermabrasion treatments before the sun gets too strong.

You will love the Vineyard Grape Wine facial and we also have some great treatments for the body as well.

Hope to see you at the spa soon.

Your transformation starts here,

20 Fitness Hacks for People Who Don’t Like Exercising

Jogging ShoesAlmost all of us could benefit by incorporating some fitness hacks into our days that would improve our odds of living a longer, healthier, and more satisfying life.

But what about those of us who aren’t cut out to jog or workout at a gym? Are you a bit intimidated at the thought of starting an exercise program?

There are many ways to make small, easy changes to your habits that can make a real difference in your fitness. Start with some of these fitness hacks.

  1. Ride the bus to work? Get off a stop or two early and walk the rest of the way.
  2. Schedule walking meetings at work.
  3. Climb the stairs instead of taking the elevator. Start slowly if you want. Work on the 10th floor? Ride to the 8th floor and walk from there. After a while, get off at the 7th floor and so on.
  4. Stop fighting for the very closest parking space. Park further away instead of right next to the store and enjoy the walk.
  5. Pick up the pace and power walk, instead of strolling. It burns more calories.
  6. Walk while you talk on the phone. Maybe you talk to your mom every Saturday. Make it part of your routine to take an hour-long walk while you chat. Maybe she will walk on her end of the phone, too.
  7. Walk your dog a little further every afternoon or take the route that goes up a slight incline. Don’t have a dog? Offer to walk the elderly neighbor’s dog regularly — everyone will be happy.
  8. Invite friends and go for a hike somewhere beautiful.
  9. Do yoga at home, maybe with a 20-minute, very accessible yoga video for complete beginners.
  10. Set a daily goal of sit-ups or pushups. Remember you don’t have to do them all at once. It’s okay if you’re starting from the very beginning. You can only do three sit-ups? Do that three times throughout the day and it will strengthen your abdominal muscles. Soon you’ll be able to do more. Repeat.
  11. Keep a calendar where you mark down your movement each day. “Walked 60 minutes.” “Did 15 sit-ups.” As you start seeing the numbers mounting, you may be motivated to keep going.
  12. Sit all day at work? Consider a treadmill desk or FitDesk, which is a computer desk atop a stationary bicycle. Ride on and off throughout your day and you’ll have a good workout while getting your work done.
  13. Clean your house. Changing the beds, mopping the floor — it all counts. Feel good about getting in some movement while getting your house in order.
  14. Wash your own car instead of driving through the car wash.
  15. Mow your lawn with a push mower.
  16. Plant a vegetable garden and tend it regularly.
  17. Get a ping pong table and challenge the kids, your spouse and your friends.
  18. Do some stretches while watching TV.
  19. Standing in line somewhere? Do 20 reps of calf raises.
  20. Get a pedometer and use it (or use a fitness app on your smart phone). At least one study shows people increase their physical activity when they keep track of their steps.

Some of these ideas may work for you and some may not. Adding in physical activity to your day doesn’t mean you must have a gym membership or invest in a treadmill. Keep in mind anything that promotes healthy circulation also helps keep your skin healthy and vibrant! Be sure to stop by Glam Spa and let a spa professional help you select the products and treatments that will help boost beautiful skin all year round!
