As a fitness trainer, it’s in my bones to motivate and push my clients to reach their fitness and diet goals. Earlier this week, I (@FitByMonica) partnered with @CocaColaCo to lead a live Twitter chat (#FITchat) about the important role of physical activity in a healthy, balanced lifestyle. During the chat, we talked about simple, fun and new ways families can get moving and the importance of balance and moderation.
I was thrilled to share with people how getting back to the basics can help them achieve an active, healthy lifestyle. One of the biggest things I emphasized during the chat is the importance of doing exercises you enjoy. You’ll be less likely to skip workouts!
Personally, I find it more fun to be active outside. Think back to the days when you rode bikes or played kickball with your friends in the park. Another benefit of going outdoors this summer? You can help support your favorite park while improving your own fitness! As part of Coca-Cola’s fourth-annual America Is Your Park campaign, getting active can help your favorite park win up to $100,000 for park improvements. Getting active has never been more rewarding!
