It’s easy to fall off your exercise routine during the holidays. Hectic schedules and travel plans make it easy to skip some sessions for a week or two. Do you ever wonder how fast your fitness level drops when you stop exercising? Sixty percent of about 3000 people in one survey believed they became out of shape after 1 or 2 weeks of not exercising.

Slacking off does not necessarily make you less fit. Not working out for 2 weeks will cause a slight decrease in fitness. The more fit you are, the less your fitness will decrease. If you don’t work out for 5 weeks, your fitness level will decrease by about half. The best thing you can do to maintain your results is by fitting in at least 2 aerobic workouts and 1 strength training session per week. If you don’t have time to fit in much, try not to go more than 2 weeks without getting back into routine. You’ll regain any loss back much faster.

When the holidays hit, they don’t have to hit your fitness gains hard. Do the best you can at fitting a few sessions in, and getting back into routine when the holidays are over. It will help you to stay fit, and hold back holiday weight gain.
