Celebrating National Wellness Month at 10GYM
It’s August. Hot, sweltering August.
While we’re enduring this record-breaking heat and humidity, let’s not forget that August is also National Wellness Month — a time to focus on self-care, stress management, and healthy routines.
And what better place to celebrate this month than our gyms in Oklahoma and Arkansas?
From yoga group exercise to functional training and soothing recovery zones, our health clubs offer a range of services and amenities designed to promote mind and body wellness. Let’s consider a few.
Have you tried yoga yet? This full-body workout doesn’t just burn calories and tone muscles; it also fosters mindfulness and relaxation. Whether you’re a seasoned yogi or a newbie, participating in a yoga class can help you connect breathe, stretch, and relax.
Functional training presents an important element to any fitness routine, as it’s a workout that not only enhances flexibility but also boosts overall strength and balance. Functional training strengthens muscles to work together and prepares them for daily tasks and common movements you might do at home, work, or in sports. For example, it can include exercises that mimic picking up groceries or climbing stairs. What does that mean? Stronger muscles and joints primed to work in unison are less prone to fatigue and injury.
Let’s take a moment to give a shout-out to muscle recovery. Allowing your body a few moments to relax and restore is essential to overall fitness and wellness, and after a strenuous workout, there’s nothing more refreshing than a soothing hydromassage. It helps to relieve muscle soreness, improve circulation, and promote overall relaxation.
Or just sit quietly and savor the great workout you’ve just achieved in the name of fitness and wellness.
But wellness isn’t just about workouts and recovery; it’s also about what we put into our bodies. Good nutrition also plays a pivotal role in maintaining wellness.
Be kind to yourself and make wise decisions in what you feed your body — especially when you’ve put so much time and effort into your workouts. Fruits, veggies, whole grains, fiber, and plenty of water are a great recipe for wellness.
National Wellness Month serves as a reminder that wellness is a journey that encompasses physical fitness, a healthy mind, and proper nutrition. So, join us in celebrating this month and let’s take a step closer to a healthier, happier you!
