Sweating for the Wedding!

We all know that you want to look you absolute best on your wedding day. With all of the other expenses that go into your wedding, it is some times hard to justify paying for a gym membership and/or nutrition plan. Today, we’d like to give you some helpful, low cost tips to help you get in the best shape of your life and start sweating for the wedding! 

First, and usually the hardest part, is to begin to change your diet and eat  a well balanced, nutritious diet.  Life, especially while you plan your wedding can get so busy, but try to resist the convienence of the drive-thru!   Sticking to a nutrition plan and prepping meals in advance, is the easiest way to stay successful when changing your eating habits. Also, be sure to enroll your fiancé and bridal party and help hold each other accountable during this process! 

One of the nutrition plan we love (and use) is the Tone It Up nutrition plan. These girls have so many tasty meals and help keep you on track with their easy tutorials and guidelines. Although the full plan is not free, if you follow them on Instagram they offer many recipes and health tips each day. 
You have prepped your meals and are changing your eating habits and starting to feel good, now it is time to start to sweat- or sparkle, whichever you prefer. 

Here in Phoenix, there are numerous gyms who offer your first class for free, cheap weekly rate, and even discounted rates for students. A studio we love, and is sure to make you sweat, is Sumits Yoga Tempe. 

Sumits yoga is specially designed for any body type and all levels of yoga practitioners. Our practice allows a complete mind and body escape. You will notice more tone, flexibility and an ability to focus. With a consistent practice you will notice an overall improved state of mind

Sumits Yoga Tempe offers 2 weeks of unlimited classes for $20 for new students. During this crazy time who doesn’t need to unwind and have a more present state of mind?

Another great resource is local athletic stores.   Lululemon Athletica offers free community classes. Scottsdale Fashion Square Lululemon has complimentary in store yoga class every Saturday morning called Namaste Saturdaze at 8:30am. They also have a chance for  the community to try various new studios all in one week. From August 11-16th lululemon is holding a complimentary community event for guests called “You Can Sweat With Us.” Scottsdale area studios such as Studio Mixx, Karve, Amenzone, Fire Daughter Boxing, are all offering your first class free that week. The week ends in store on the 16th where you can enjoy a yoga class and enter to win free gear while shopping the latest work out gear. Be sure to like you local lululemon Facebook page for more information and information about complimentary classes and promotions. 

Have fun with the process. Mix up your work outs and go with friends. This is an exciting time in your life so make sure your workouts and nutrition plan also feel that way. Namaste!
