Fitness Tip


Lana Pacheco, Fitness Director & Certified Personal Trainer

As the weather starts to cool off and we tend to seek more indoor activity, stay fit and motivated with these three simple tips:

  • Bring your workouts back inside to the gym. Your workout doesn’t have to take a lot of time. Even a half-hour workout will increase your energy and stamina. Parkpoint offers a wide variety of group exercise choices, and many are geared for beginners. Group cycling is for everyone. Remember, it’s just like riding a bike (only safer with no traffic or road hazards to worry about)! Like to dance? Try Zumba! Want to mix it up? How about Piloxing…a combination of Pilates and Boxing! Want to build muscle? Try our AM Muscle define, noon Resistance and Core, or evening Muscle Max classes. Don’t forget the fitness floor offers Fit Express six days a week as well as quarterly half-hour training appointments.
  • Get outside and enjoy the season by bicycling, walking, hiking, jogging, and playing golf and tennis. Autumn is an amazing season, with its warm, sunny days, cool evenings, and postcard perfect colors. Explore parks in your area. Find a new bike path through the woods or take a walk around a lake. Time spent out in nature will do as much good for your mind as for your body.
  • Make it social: One of the great things about exercise is that it doesn’t need to be done alone. Find a friend with similar fitness goals. Having a partner helps you both stay motivated. You can use your exercise time to catch up on each other’s lives. Boredom is the number one killer of good health and fitness regimens. Exercising with a friend puts the fun back into your workout.
