Your wedding day will be the biggest day you’ve ever had. Short of graduation, the birth of your first child or whatever else might be personally fulfilling, your wedding will be filled with thousands of moments that you’ll want to keep forever. So, why wouldn’t you want to look your best?
Finding the right wedding workout can be (no pun intended) exhausting! You’re already on the hook trying to pull together all the rest of the elements of the wedding, who has time to also fit in a 3-5 times a week workout? The key is finding that time, and making the workout a routine. Train your body to know the time that you normally workout, so that you start feeling weird when you don’t.
There are many workouts out there, but you have to find the right one that fits your goals, comfort level, and schedule. Here are some options to get you started:
One of the most popular ways to get fit, yoga is also not just for increasing flexibility anymore. There are several types of yogas that you can use to actually increase muscle mass, and lose weight at the same time. Yoga is also a great way to get toned if you’re already in shape.
Boot Camps are generally available in most major cities. These morning boot camps take people through high intensity workouts early in the morning, generally before work or classes begin. It’s a great way to get in shape quickly while doing so in with some free time.
It’s tempting to just pick up the first gym membership that’s convenient. However, your best bet is to actually research each gym and see what sort of activities, programs and equipment they offer. Their hours may also be a factor as finding time to work out is the chief complaint among those who purchase a gym membership and then never go. If you want to make your gym membership work for you, find a place that will cater to what you need. Many gyms offer special training programs, or help with nutrition and meal planning. Each of these things can really help contribute to you keeping a schedule at the gym.
If you are troubled by the cost of some of these activities, or you can’t make it to the classes when they’re available, a great way to get in shape for your wedding are the work out at home tapes like P90X. P90X uses the technique of high intensity low impact workouts that are proven to help shape your muscles and get in shape quickly. It’s a 90 day program that takes you through a lot of different types of exercises so you get a great all around workout during each session. These workouts range from strength training, cardio, yoga, plyometric, and stretching. Each of these are designed specifically to keep your muscles burning fat long after you finish working out.
Your wedding day is the most important thing you’ll do. Finding a good wedding workout and sticking with it will be well worth it in the long run. The habits you begin your marriage with will last through the years. Make them good ones!
