Get out that workout bag! Join Tufts Trek to Talloires to get a community of support for your fitness goals this spring.
Dust off those sneakers… If you’ve been hiding from the cold all break long it’s time to pick up that workout bag and get a move on spring fitness goals!
Tufts University’s Trek to Talloires Challenge offers a free online fitness logging program for Tufts students, faculty, staff, alumni, and parents to help kick start a new year of health. The 2011 Trek officially launched on January 3rd, but it isn’t too late to join! I just signed up today and am looking forward to having the extra boost to meet my goals for this spring.
The program is part of the Healthy @ Tufts initiative.
Get ready keeping a workout bag packed and ready to go. Here’s a list of a few things to help you keep sweat in check, stay hydrated, and avoid picking up gym germs.
The Perfect Workout Bag: 5 Essentials to Tote to the Gym
– Small hand towel
– Mini hand sanitizer – Use before touching your phone or your face if you can’t make it to a sink to wash your hands
– Water bottle– invest in a reusable bottle like stainless steel Klean Kanteen
– Travel-sized face wash or pre-moistened facial cleansing cloths– help prevent breakouts by cleaning your face right after a workout
–Extra hairband (ladies)/extra socks(guys)
Keep a ready-to-grab bag packed so you’ll be prepped to go whenever you have time to workout!
If you’re going to a gym where you’re planning on showering don’t forget flip flops! Tempted by drive-through windows on the way home? Pack a healthy snack like a handful of almonds and an apple to halt hunger instead. If you’re walking home on campus plan ahead to have a healthy post-workout snack or meal in mind.
