SPRING FORWARD INTO BETTER FITNESS
You’ve turned the clocks forward, possibly started Spring cleaning, and now maybe you can freshen up your fitness goals as well! Here are 7 ways to “spring forward” into fitness:
1: Identify the “why” - fitness isn’t always about losing weight - maybe your “why” is that you want to feel better about yourself, have more energy and know that you’re doing something good for your body.
2: Find a way (or a few ways) to be active every day -- Enjoy a walk outside, or try one of our excellent group fitness classes at ESAC! Lots of variety…chair class, water ex, yoga & more!
3: Eat real, whole food -- fresh fruits and veggies, whole grains, healthy and clean proteins -- treat your body well - it’s the only one you’ve got!
4: Don’t think of health as a punishment -- Be thankful for the health you have - it’s a gift that we should appreciate and build so that we can live BETTER.
5: Don’t skimp on sleep -- make it a priority because it really does affect your health.
6: Hydrate! This is one of the simplest ways to achieve a healthier you. Keep a water bottle with you to remind you to drink more H2O!
7: Enlist a buddy -- a friend or co-worker can help you stay accountable to your goals, and it’s just more fun to work out with a friend or group than by yourself! (Here’s another plug for our awesome and fun classes at ESAC!!) Check out the class schedule & try something NEW!

Do you attend ActiveAdult Strength, SilverSneakers and/or Silver&Fit Classes?
Here are just 5 important benefits from (and reasons that you should participate in) strength training:
1. Improve functional strength & flexibility - for your daily activities, and making you less vulnerable to falls or other injuries.
2. Increase bone mass and density - help protect against osteoporosis.
3. Build muscle strength - adults lose between 5-7 pounds of muscle every decade after age 20!
4. Lower body fat - research in strength training has demonstrated a 4-lb. fat loss after 3 months of training
5. Reduce resting blood pressure.
