RE: I've always been a sports lover, I dance and go to the gym to workout and take some yoga classes. However there are times when your time seems more limited and you start to loose a healthy balance between BODY - BRAIN - SOUL The daily feeding of all three areas is essential in order to maintain a happy and healthy life and the key to achieve a good balance lays in the time-management of your daily routine. I found out that a lot of people struggle with efficiency in terms of a healthy lifestyle balance, which is why I decided to create:
Optimum health requires the mind, physical body and spirit to be in balance.
SteemFit is focused on taking care of your health, your well-being and a concept for busy people with limited time. SteemFit stands for a balanced health and work life.
Today's episode is going to be different from the usual concept of SteemFit!
Usually my SteemFit series consists of me sharing step-by-step routines in form of gifs, but this episode is different. When it comes to a regular week in my life, I go to the gym to exercise or do yoga about three times a week before starting work.. usually on Monday, Tuesday and Friday and I go to @sirwinchester 's dance class on Wednesday and Sunday. And yes do have a quite demanding work-life and my weeks are busy, BUT one thing I learned is that you never HAVE time, you only MAKE time for what matters to you and well... my health does. Especially if your work requires you to sit a lot, you need to make even more effort to move a lot!
As I always preach to value your time and be efficient, today was a great example of that. Even having fun with your friends can be efficient. Combining physical activity with fun is a perfect way of tricking yourself into working out and trying a new sport with your friends creates extra fun.. and that's exactly what I did today!
After @sirwinchester taught the next generation of dancers and @soldier and I assisted him…(a post about it will be on his blog)
we decided to see what else this new studio has to offer and in what way we could get some cardio in..
.. We decided to try something new and make use of what most studios do not offer… TENNIS!
It’s a tough sport, and just like dance perfect to sweat it out, while having fun (especially if you don't particularly like running). You have to be fast and accurate. Somewhat more like this..
And less like this..
Yes we were joking around a lot, but at the end of the day we still moved our muscles and were pretty exhausted afterwards. All in all we stayed at the Aspria Gym for less than two hours (1 hour of Dance; 30 minutes of Tennis), and yet got our body to move A LOT..
Have fun when you workout and it won't feel like work.
After a solid round of tennis, @sirwinchester and I played fussball, which is what we always do when we see this game around. Both of us are extremely competitive, so it’s always an exciting and fun match!
On our way home @soldier and I had to stop on the side of a busy road to enjoy and take advantage of a rare and beautiful sunset! Such sunsets, just like good weather are particularly rare to witness in Hamburg, Germany..
So we quickly decided to film some dance footage, with this beautiful background and showcase this little tutting combo, @sirwinchester had taught in the kids class early that day...
All in all it was a great day, getting work done in the morning, physical activity in the afternoon and to round it off, dancing during a stunningly beautiful sunset. For the entire dance-session visit @soldier 's blog!
When was the last time you tricked yourself into exercising and how?
