After over-indulging throughout the holiday season and perhaps letting our fitness goals get away from us, many people look to make staying active a big part of their New Year’s resolutions.
Whether that means starting fresh with a new workout plan or simply being more dedicated to your regular routine, the health benefits associated with regular exercise make those resolutions some of the best ones you can make. If you don’t know where to start, here are a few suggestions for activities you can engage in at Los Cab to kick start your fitness journey in the new year.
GET IN THE POOL
Everyone can learn to swim, and you don’t have to be Michael Phelps to reap all the benefits of this low-impact, therapeutic exercise. Swimming offers excellent aerobic benefits, and for those suffering aches and pains, getting in the water on a regular basis can be instrumental in keeping them at bay. Los Cab also offers a wide variety of aquatics classes for members looking to build strength, flexibility and more without the pounding on their joints brought on by other forms of exercise.

TAKE A GROUP CLASS
There are few better motivations than peer pressure, and not wanting to concede defeat is often great motivation to avoid quitting during a particularly challenging portion of a group fitness class. Los Cab offers something for all fitness interests, from CXWORX and Bodypump to high-impact interval training, cycling, stride treadmill classes, step aerobics, boxing, Zumba and more.

TAKE ON TENNIS
Whether you’re a veteran of the sport or new to the game, you can improve your skills at Los Cab thanks to a talented and diverse staff of tennis professionals. Adult clinics are offered Saturdays and Sundays, as well as Tuesday evenings, and Los Cab’s large tennis membership includes players of all abilities. Getting involved in tennis also brings plenty of social benefits as the club hosts competitive tournaments and casual and fun Doo Dahs throughout the year. Visit loscab.com/pros-clinics-lessons.
Taking time out to treat yourself to a massage, facial or other spa treatment can be quite invigorating, and the benefits are well worth it. Just like working out and eating right serve to strengthen your body, spending time in the spa can help relax and rejuvenate you while melting away the stresses of everyday life. Gem Day Spa offers a full line of services, from various forms of massage to an extensive menu of facial options, derma-ray high-frequency detoxification and more. Visit loscab.com/gem-day-spa.
