Constructive activites for your week off

Well, if you have been involved in Be More Fitness Bootcamps before, you'll know that we take a week off after every 4 weeks of Bootcamp. In that week, we do a nutrition workshop, Body Fat testing and the Fitness testing. These value added features I believe, are important to help you reach your fitness goals. This is why we offer them!
I often get asked "what can I do on the week off?" It's nice to do an activity that you have maybe never done before? We call it active rest. The activity should be different than the activity in Bootcamps. This way the body and mind get something different, which challenges them both. In the winter you might try skating, skiing, and even tobogganing, (climbing up those hills is a great cardio activity). You lose your strength at 1/3 the rate you gain it, which means we lose it a lot faster then we gain it. One week off is great because you will lose very little of what you have gained. It also allows your body to recover and be ready to start again.
One activity I like to do is cleanse on my week off. This helps to get rid of any toxins you may have and helps you start fresh again. Beware of dangerous cleanses that tell you not to eat for a week etc. I cleanse with the all natural Arbonne cleanse. It's mild, yet effective. Email me and I will give you Eve M.'s email for more info, or if you would like to try it.
