Evaluate your goals. Are they realistic? Create goals you can actually achieve.
Celebrate small victories. Each one brings you closer to your big goal.
Find a workout partner and hold each other accountable.
Establish a routine and stick to it. Even professional athletes have a set routine.
Change your attitude! Approach workouts as fun, not a chore.
Prepare to hit the slopes (once we get some more snow) by working those thighs and glutes. One way people generally get injured when skiing or snowboarding is by going to the mountains after a long summer and autumn with likely no pre-conditioning. Avoid muscle fatigue and potential accidents by preparing yourself and your body. Monique Molino, PJCC Pilates Coordinator, shows us one fitness tip to help you prepare.
