Many believe that now is the time to get back to a healthy routine and, in some cases, lose the pounds gained over the summer. You can already tell in the gyms.
Most people recognize it. Summer is synonymous with more, less healthy eating, excessive alcohol consumption and little exercise. During vacation, free time increases, people socialize more and do less sport. Days lying on the beach, drinking beer in beach bars, junk food, endless sit-down meals, in short, a rather sedentary life. In many cases, diet and leisure are not compatible.
Just like after the Christmas holidays, summer is the classic scene of overeating and relaxation with physical activity. Because of the holiday spirit, it’s most common to hit the gym with some regret in the first few weeks of September. The desire to achieve results often makes going to the gym counterproductive, as it is usually not possible to last longer than two months.
Some gym employees claim that people who start the gym looking for quick results usually can’t stay logged in and end up giving up.
“In most centers there is a clearly noticeable increase,” confirms Clara Patiño, manager of Infinit Fitness. And the reason he says: “It’s been two sabbatical months, so to speak, and people want to get back to the routine.”
The big challenge is to enjoy exercise and make it a daily habit. To do this, we must analyze the main reasons for abandonment. Experts recommend “managing impulses for change” so that good routines are not abandoned.
