Spring is in the air - it's time for Wellness
The changing seasons profoundly affect our habits. While the winter makes us lazy and sluggish, the arrival of the spring, with its milder temperatures and longer hours of light, fills us with a new vitality.
What's the best way to encourage this seasonal rebirth? Simply by UTILISING the time we devote to ourselves through a gradual change of pace and habits, starting with brief but regular physical activity.
Numerous studies have shown that at first, the early spring sun triggers a normal sensation of languor and drowsiness which then is replaced with a reawakening of the spirit. It is important to devote great attention to our sleep, which must be as regular as possible, and our diet, which should be rich in vitamins and mineral salts, and low in fats.
But the sunshine and warm weather bring out a renewed desire to move and take care of our body. Working out30 minutes exercise every day will bring important physical and mental benefits. The most complete workout, ideal to shed the winter's sluggishness consists of a number of warm-up exercises, that are always essential to protect the body from possible traumas, as well as exercises to stimulate cardiovascular tone and strengthen the muscles.
For this to be really effective, it is necessary to exercise diligently and regularly. Wellness Tools are the ideal instruments, for example, to help provide a rapid, effective exercise programme even at home.
Here are a few recommendations on how to begin:
Start on the Wellness Pad, the practical pad for stretching and doing exercises on the floor, to improve the flexibility of the whole body in total comfort. The next step is to strengthen the muscles of the upper part of the body with the disks and barbells of the Wellness Rack and the small weights of the Wellness Weight line. Next, to firm the abdominal muscles and legs, it's time for exercises with the fantastic Wellness Ball, also excellent for a final series of cooling-off exercises.
To optimize the results of your workout and obtain even more obvious benefits in less time, it is a good idea to add a few weekly sessions of cardiovascular activity for approximately 20 to 30 minutes. An excellent way is to run or walk briskly on the Run Forma treadmill or pedal on the Bike Forma exercise bike.
All the cardio machines of the Technogym Forma line are elegantly designed to look good in any home and ensure an effective, enjoyable, safe workout.
