How to Maximize Your Workouts

Follow these easy steps to maximize and enjoy your workouts!


  • Hydrate by drinking 8 to 16 oz. of water and pack a water bottle.
  • Eat some carbs – they convert to energy quickly. Try a granola bar or an apple and a handful of whole grain crackers.
  • Get a solid eight hours of sleep.
  • Limit alcohol consumption the night before a workout. Absolutely no alcohol within hours of your workout.
  • Wear breathable workout ware – nothing fancy, just moisture wicking.

Post workout

  • Eat some protein within a half an hour of your workout. Maybe a protein bar or shake. Low in sugar of course!
  • Hydrate some more. Shoot to consume half of your body weight in ounces of water each day.
  • Consume foods high in anti-oxidants. Think brightly colored fruits and veggies, and whole grains.
  • Stretch sore muscles throughout the day.

Happy exercising!
