Fall officially starts tomorrow. As it starts getting colder outside, it becomes increasingly hard to find motivation to stay active and work out. Luckily, one of the best trainers in Canada – Nike Master Trainer, Eva Redpath, shares with us her favorite fall workout and tips on how to stay active.
What are your fall fitness recommendations?
I’m constantly setting new goals to stay motivated throughout the year and find that it’s the best way to kick off a new season. With the time changing and the sun setting earlier in the Fall, it can feel as if it is later in the day than it is and can make people more tired than usual. Getting into a routine of working out early will guarantee you aren’t missing workouts and you’re starting your day off with a sweat session. Try taking a morning NTC class or use the N+TC app to keep yourself motivated by creating your own 4-week program and finish your workouts anywhere at any time.
What is your favorite N+TC workout to make the transition from summer to fall?
When making the transition from Summer to Fall, I love to turn the heat up with high intensity training. Nike Master Trainer, Utah Lee created a killer “Cardio Hustle” workout on the N+TC app. Utah’s 30 minute high intensity moves incorporate speed-based drills for an all-over body burn. With quick body rotations, power moves and stability work, you create lean muscle, improve reaction speed and build cardio. It’s one of my favourite N+TC workouts and I always finish feeling the burn!
What keeps you motivated to work out as the temperature drops?
When the weather changes, I love to update my wardrobe and this applies to my fitness pieces as well. One of the best ways for me to stay motivated is ensuring I have all the pieces needed for the results I want. Adding new pieces that are designed to keep you warm even in the coldest weather takes the excuses out of season. One of my favourite winter pieces this year is the Nike Therma-Sphere Max Women’s Training Vest. It’s designed for cold weather training to keep you warm without overheating. The Nike Sphere raised nodes provide warmth and comfort and the lightweight, breathable fabric allows you to have full range of motion for full body workouts. It has a durable, water-repellent finish to help with staying dry. Go out and brave the winter in style with its asymmetrical zipper and overall sleek design.
