Fitness - Preparing for Transition as the Seasons Change

Connect and Grow Magazine - Edition 7 - March 2024

As the weather starts to change, our exercise program may also change.  Vivienne gives us some time for our fitness from March into April.


Transitioning from the vibrant highlights of Summer to the cozy embrace of Autumn is a journey we all go through every year.  In Australia, we bid farewell to the sun-kissed days at the beach, backyard cricket matches, and leisurely strolls as we look out across the water.


As the weather cools and the days shorten, we may yearn for the comforts of the indoor lifestyle, Netflix marathons, and hearty meals that seem to shape our ‘winter bodies’.

Having spent three decades in the fitness industry, I have witnessed this familiar pattern repeatedly.


  But what if we approached this seasonal shift this year with a fresh perspective?  Instead of succumbing to hibernation mode, why not seize the opportunity to revamp our fitness routines and prioritise our health and well-being?



Health and Wellbeing!

As we transition from Summer to Autumn, let’s embrace outdoor activities that align with the cooler weather.  Think beyond the confines of the gym and explore activities like hiking, cycling, or outdoor boot camps to invigorate your workouts and soak in the beauty of the changing scenery.

While the temptation to indulge in carb-rich comfort foods may be strong, consider incorporating the bounty of seasonal produce into your meals.  Opting for brightly coloured fruits and vegetables nourishes your body and supports your overall health and well-being.


Proper attire and hydration are essential components of your autumn fitness regime. Layer up with moisture-wicking clothing for outdoor activities and ensure you stay hydrated, even if cold fluids aren’t your preference. Herbal teas can be a warm, hydrating alternative to meet your daily fluid intake goal.

By embracing the seasonal transition and adapting your fitness routine accordingly, you can stay motivated and committed to your health goals throughout Autumn.  Remember, consistency is key, so continue to prioritize your well-being as you embark on this journey from Summer to Autumn.  Let’s make this season a time of growth, renewal, and above all, fun!
