Helpful Tips from Holly

1. Fuel up. 30 minutes before your workout, eat a nutritious snack like a Balance Bar for lasting energy.

2. Eat seasonal. Most fruits and veggies are at their peak during summer months and they add nutrients to your diet. The more colors on your plate, the better!

3. Holly’s Tip: Find a workout buddy. Great “buddy workouts” include biking, outdoor dancing classes, canoeing and hiking (with a healthy picnic at the end)!

4. Small meals make a big impact. Eat many small meals a day that are packed with nutrients, including a snack in between each meal like a Cookie Dough Balance Bar® which will keep you full longer.

5. Take your workout outside. Use the pictures below to take your workout…wherever!

These workout summaries are great to have on hand when you want to workout outside in the fresh air. Just print one out or open it on your phone to get started!
