Get Summer Strong

by Blayne Soriano, Level 2 CrossFit Coach and CrossFit Kids Coach

When you hear the phrase “strong for the summer,” what does that mean to you?

Does it mean you want to look and feel confident in a bathing suit either by a pool, the beach or a lake day with friends? Does it mean you have activities with your kids, nieces, nephews you want to be able to keep up the energy for?

I like to play the advocate for the phrase: “Always striving to be better, to be stronger, to grow and change for the better.”

Everyone’s motives will be different when it comes to getting strong for the summer, but here are some things you can get started on now to work toward creating a healthy lifestyle as we move closer to summer.

  • Stay hydrated.
  • Get enough vitamins and minerals through foods such as fruits and vegetables.
  • Focus on eating enough protein to stay sated and burn unwanted fat.
  • Get outside. Challenge yourself a couple times a week to go on a hike, bike ride or even just a walk with a friend.

Make this your strongest summer yet!!
