By Erin Darling
HollywoodNews.com: Memorial Day has come and gone, and as we enter the month of June, there’s one question that’s inevitably weighing on everyone’s mind…”Am I ready for swimsuit season?” Although getting ready to bare skin on the beach may seem like a daunting task, personal trainer Anthony Golston says all it takes is a little determination, “The steps are easy to follow. It’s just sticking to them.”
As a former scholarship athlete and certified trainer with celebrity clientele, Golston knows his way around a gym and (more importantly) how to get results. I sat down with Golston to get his best tips on how to get a body that’s as hot as the sweltering summer heat.
5. Stick with it!
Everyone who has ever embarked on an ambitious workout plan knows that the toughest part is the beginning. “Don’t see it as a task, see it as an investment for a healthier, happier you,” says Golston. After you get started on your new routine, you might feel a lack of motivation or become bored. To combat this, Golston recommends utilizing the buddy system in the gym to help encourage you to continue on your path of self improvement. Remember, this is a new lifestyle, so find ways to make it work for you. Sometimes that means changing your workout, or finding new healthy recipes.
Sleep is an important part of any fitness routine, perhaps even more so than most people realize. “Cortisol is a stress hormone that leads to fat storage, usually in your mid-section,” says Golston. “With all the hard work you’re putting in, recovery is very important. When you sleep your body releases a plethora of beneficial hormones that promote fat loss as well as repair and prepare your body for the next day of high metabolic fat burning.” Although the proper number of hours of sleep each person needs depends on many factors, Mayo Clinic says that most people function optimally with 5-7 hours. Another sleep related tip? “Try not to eat after 8 PM,” says Golston. “Any calories you’re not burning off will turn to fat.”
