Today is our first Fit Tip Friday. Today's tip is to have active rest days compared to taking full days off from working out. Active rest means that you are moving your body with a low-intensity activity, but not pushing yourself like in your normal workouts. Active rest decreases the amount of lactic acid in our bodies, speeds up muscle recovery and helps to keep our minds focused on our personal health and fitness journeys. Below are a few examples of things to do on your next active rest day.
2) Walk your dog
3) Go for a relaxing bike ride
4) Play Frisbee
5) Jump on a trampoline
6) Go for a swim
7) Go sailing
8) Play a match of volleyball
9) Give yourself a foam roller massage
10) Go rollerblading
