As we head back into Fall, many people rush to take advantage of the last of the beautiful Summer weather and activities while they still can. While we highly encourage you to keep active, we strongly urge you to pace yourself to ensure you don’t fall victim to Weekend Warrior Syndrome.

Weekend Warrior Syndrome is what happens when you don’t exercise during the week and then push yourself too hard on the weekend. Such intense activity can be even more serious if you don’t take time to warm your muscles beforehand.

Taking the time to properly train and prepare for any intense activity – whether it is an upcoming marathon, rowing challenge or sporting competition – is extremely important. If you are planning to partake in any such activity, or if you would like to have the option to train harder on weekends, you should talk to your trainer about the best way to go about it. You and your trainer may decide to modify your exercise program in an effort to help you train for a specific event and they can give you great tips for at-home exercises to ensure you are ready to push yourself to your limits. We hope you have a safe and wonderful final few weeks of Summer.
