Planning for a wedding is an exciting and hectic time! With all the great hairstyles and suits to choose from, it’s equally important to stay groomed physically, too. Men in 2019 have no excuse to stay stagnant in his fitness routine.
We’ve compiled a list of top tips to help the modern groom keep up the momentum in the run-up to his big day!
#1. Start Early
No matter what level of fitness you are at right now, it’s always a good idea to start early. Start by mapping out your goal. Are you aiming to lose weight, build muscle, or just tone up?
Once you have that goal in place, create a plan with realistic and measurable goals in mind to help stay on track. Make sure to plan a schedule that fits your lifestyle and day-to-day activities.
#2. Home Workouts
For those looking for the convenience of working out in the comfort of their own home, there are plenty of options available. With the emergence of technology, more and more online programs are available such as Insight Timer and YouTube fitness channels.
We recommend incorporating a mix of yoga and HIIT (high intensity interval training) into your fitness routine. Yoga helps boost mental clarity and HIIT stimulates your body aerobically for the perfect combination!
#3. Walks and Talks
Time can fly by so quickly during a hectic wedding planning period, and it’s important to find small moments of solace. We recommend finding the time to take long walks and have talks with friends and family. Studies have shown that walks have a direct link to improved heart health and muscle toning!
#4. Eat Smart
In addition to working out, eating clean is another key component to staying groomed. You don’t need to go off completely off the deep end and cut out all the yummy food – but switch up your diet and think of healthier options. Try incorporating protein and fiber-rich foods, and switch out your sodas for fresh juices.
#5. Get Some Rest
The most important fitness tip we have to offer is to give your body the rest it needs. Your body will eventually succumb to fatigue if you don’t take the time to rest. Make sure to get 8 hours of sleep every night and if possible, book some spa treatment to shrug off any built-up stress.
With these tips, the modern groom can stay groomed and ready for the most special day of his life!
