I’ve tried a lot of different fitness routines over the years but none that really stuck for more than a couple months. I’m determined to change that in 2016 and living at Alexan Auburn Lakes luxury apartments, a healthier lifestyle is easy. All the excuses I had for not getting in shape before are gone.
The community offers a full state of the art athletic club so gone is the excuse that I can’t get to the gym. I once made the mistake of joining a gym all the way across town (a 40-minute drive in afternoon traffic) so I never went. The athletic club at Alexan Auburn Lakes has everything I need, from treadmills to free weights, to get a complete workout. Here's a great routine from Muscle & Fitness I’m following to get started.
I haven’t taken many fitness classes in my lifetime following a humiliating foray into Krav Maga but one I’ve enjoyed is yoga. There’s a beautiful yoga/Crossfit room here that will help me stretch and strengthen. This article has helpful tips for beginners of the practice.
On the nice days, I can hit the jogging trail that surrounds the lake or do some laps in one of the two tropical pools on site. And I can prepare more food at home, whipping up healthy recipes in my gorgeous kitchen. This article explains how to eat better on a hectic schedule, with meal suggestions that are quicker than ordering take-out. I seriously have no more excuses.
This is the year I take charge of my health. And Alexan Auburn Lakes makes it easy. Happy 2016!
