We all know that Halloween is traditionally the day when we all throw health and fitness out the window in favor of snacking on candy and junk food. But Halloween (and the many social activities that come with it) is a great way to work in some extra exercise here and there, which can help you offset the sweet treats of All Hallows’ Eve, should you choose to partake. Read on for a few tips.
- Plan out a trick or treating route that will give you a generous walking distance, though you’ll definitely want to check the weather forecast and factor that into your plans. (And remember that the more you walk the more houses you can hit, and the heavier your candy bag grows, the more of a workout you get—it’s a win-win!)
- Don’t skip the jack o’lanterns this year! Running around the pumpkin patch and then putting in the elbow grease needed to carve out your creation are great ways to get the heart pumping and burn some calories.
- Grab a few good friends and head out to a haunted house. The walking (and possibly sprinting in terror) definitely counts as physical activity.
- If you plan to stick to a workout routine through the Halloween season, good for you! Put on a horror flick or a thriller to keep you occupied while you pedal away on your exercise bike or run through your fears on your treadmill.
So there you have it. If you’ve got any additional tips, let us know! Of course, the one surefire way you can avoid sabotaging your diet over Halloween is to stay away from eating too much candy, but at Smooth Fitness we know that everyone wants to indulge once in a while. Have fun, and stay safe!
Trying to strengthen your core, but feel like you might scream if you have to do one more crunch? Smooth Fitness is pleased to introduce you to an all-new product that combines core, cardio and convenience in one portable package: the SitNCycle!
Although it’s technically classified as an exercise bike, the new SitNCycle utilizes a super-unique hands-free design that forces you to engage your core while you’re pedaling. Yoga and pilates fans already know how important balance is when it comes to strengthening your muscles; when you incorporate it into a cardio workout, the results are truly one of a kind. Since increasing your muscle mass makes you burn more calories when you’re simply going about your daily activities, imagine what that muscle training will do for your body while you’re already in the process of burning calories – up to 500 in just one hour on the SitNCycle, by the way, depending on your level of intensity. Now THAT’S how you get the most out of exercising at home!
Like all the best stationary bikes, the SitNCycle allows you to adjust your resistance to determine the intensity of each workout, making it the perfect piece of fitness equipment for beginners and veterans alike. But the best part about the SitNCycle is the convenience it provides anyone who is looking to buy gym equipment that they can accommodate in tight spots and tighter schedules. Since you don’t need your hands, “I’m too busy” as an excuse for skipping your workout becomes a thing of the past. Park the SitNCycle in front of the TV; pedal while catching up on your studies; move it to the computer room to check your emails. Whatever you need to get done today, the SitNCycle allows you to do it without neglecting your health and well-being.
If you’ve been searching for the best stationary bike to help you exercise at home, the SitNCycle should be at the top of your list. And if you’re feeling lost in your efforts to buy gym equipment online, you’ve already found your way! As the #1 internet retailer of home fitness equipment since 1996, Smooth Fitness is happy to provide a variety of solutions for achieving your personal health goals.
