As you prepare for the hot temperatures of a Tucson summer, you will want to take a few steps to feel confident in your favorite sun dresses and short shorts. If you feel like you need to get in shape before summer begins, follow these simple tips from Animas Center.
In the heat, you might naturally have less of an appetite, but you should still remain conscious of what you are eating. Shopping seasonally for your produce and eating balanced meals will be essential for maintaining a trim figure for the summer. If you are eating to slim down, remember not to skip meals—especially breakfast. A protein-packed smoothie is an ideal choice, since you may not want to start the day with a heavy meal knowing that it’s already nearly 100 degrees outside.
Drink plenty of water
When temperatures are over 100 degrees, staying hydrated is essential. You may need to drink a lot more water than you do in winter and spring, and you should be careful to compensate for alcoholic or caffeinated beverages with extra glasses of water.
Find the right fitness routine
By choosing Pilates, dance, or yoga to get in shape, you can tone your whole body while having fun and bringing your fitness into balance. Plus, you will enjoy the benefit of exercising indoors with the option to take classes or have private instruction. You can get in great shape without suffering in the heat of the Tucson summer.
Animas Center provides a wide range of classes at all levels in dance, Pilates, yoga, and general fitness.
