Getting Fit Before Your Big Day

Your wedding day is just around the corner and you want to look and feel your best. After all, it’s one of the most important days of your life! Here are some exercises you can do to get yourself wedding day ready.


Cardio is the best way to shred unnecessary fat and get your heart pumping. Try setting yourself a goal to do some light cardio for 30 minutes every day for the weeks leading up to your big day. Anything from a leisurely walk to a Higher-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) session could help you tone up and have you looking svelte on the happiest day of your life.

Strength Training

Focus on lifting weights to help tone your muscles and give you some serious shape. Aim to do two to three full-body sessions per week; no need for a move so complex that you have to make a cheat sheet. A set of nimble yet effective moves like squats, lunges, and planks will help you make a quick transformation, and with proper nutrition, you’ll be on your way to a wedding day body.


Yoga is a great activity to put your mind and body in balance, and help those jittery nerves settle before you say “I do”. Incorporating yoga into your routine just a couple of days a week can help you become stronger both mentally and physically. Not only that, but it’s a great way to build core strength and increase flexibility. Coupled with a healthy diet, yoga can help give you a stunning shape ahead of your big day.

Making it Official

Take the plunge and make your commitment to fitness officially by signing up for an exercise class specifically created for brides-to-be. This can often be a great way to meet new people, make friends and, most of all, get yourself ready for walking down that aisle. The atmosphere in these classes will be full of supportive energy and motivation from those who are also prepping for the big day.

So Now What?

It’s now time to make sure that you stay consistent with your fitness regimen. Transform love into lunges and commit to your goals! With the right guidance, you can look and feel your best, and be the most confident version of yourself as you walk towards your happily ever after.
