Summer's right around the corner! Get in shape with this 12-week summer fitness plan.
Summer always comes more quickly than expected. One minute, you’re toasting the New Year. A second later, it’s June! Even worse, the extra holiday pounds never left, and it’s time for that long-awaited vacation you’ve earned. You won’t make it if you start too late unless you take drastic and unnecessary steps. Instead, you can plan ahead, and you’ll have the bikini, shorts, and tank-top body of your dreams. This 12-week get fit for summer fitness plan is the perfect guide to prepare for you for all the fun and great clothing you’ll be wearing this summer.
12-Week Get Fit for Summer Fitness Plan
It happens to all of us; winter kicks in, the sun seems like it only shines for an hour a day, and you lose motivation and stop going to the gym. Welcome to the club! But join the other club: the one that’s proactive about getting back into shape. This fitness plan offers five workouts a week to put you on track for a summer body you’ll be proud of.
Each week offers a variety of exercises that either target specific muscle groups or provide a total body workout. You’ll perform HIIT workouts, body circuits, burnouts, and a range of our other most popular workouts to burn fat, build muscle, and tone all over.
You’ll need a variety of equipment if you’re planning to tackle this fitness plan at home: dumbbells and an interval timer (available on most phones).
Follow this schedule to a T. We’ve added some meal plans to follow throughout the challenge to ensure you’re getting the right fuel and food. If you have diet restrictions, feel free to explore our entire meal planning section to find options that suit your lifestyle.
Throughout this fitness plan, we’ll incorporate three meal plans. The first one is our 30-Day Eat the Pounds Away Challenge and Grocery List. Stay fueled and energized!
