CONQUER THE SEASON - GETTING FIT THIS SPRING
September 11, 2020
Every day we make it our mission to try and keep you looking and feeling your best. We believe that the right haircut and grooming makes all the difference in preparing for the challenges that lay ahead. With that said, today we take a look at some of the other things that you can do to put your best foot forward, get fit and conquer the season this spring.
The warm and sunny days have well and truely arrived, it is time to wave goodbye to winter and welcome change along with the weather. Spring is a time for new life and new beginnings, it’s the perfect time to get toned up before summer, time for a new routine and a fresh new look too.
Here’s How You Do It:
Your skin is your largest organ and covers your entire body, if your skin is dehydrated and doesn’t look good, then you don’t look good. Always drink plenty of water and apply a quality moisturiser, especially after shaving.
Hit The Pavement
Regular exercise is an integral part of men’s health, if you’re not active, you need to be. At a minimum, get out for a walk or a run several time a week. The benefits are plenty, both physically and mentally. You will reduce your risk of chronic disease and hopefully stay out of an early grave.
Consider joining a gym or participating in other sports. Any good increase in high intensity exercise will provide a boost in testosterone levels and the release of endorphins, your bodies feel good chemicals.
Stretch It Out
Don’t underestimate the importance of a good stretch. It helps to prevent the loss in range of motion and improves posture. It can also help to prevent injury and reduce muscle soreness after exercising. You don’t need to join a hot yoga class but be sure to stretch it out from time to time.
Take A Cold Shower
The cold water shocks our body, improving our circulation and increasing metabolism. Electrical impulses are sent to the brain, this jolt to the system releases endorphins which lead to feelings of alertness, clarity and well-being, an uncomfortable yet invigorating way to clear you mind.
The Right Fuel
A trimmed and toned beach body won’t happen overnight, but couple an increase in exercise with the right fuel for your body and you will be well on your way. To eat for best health, choose a variety of foods from the five food groups, stay away from highly processed foods and anything with trans fatty acids.
To Wrap It Up
What results from implementing these positive changes to lifestyle can do wonders for your self-confidence and allow you to grow into a new chapter in your life. To compliment the process you should get in and see the team for a regular trim or fresh new look.

The barbershop has long been a place that was considered a safe haven for men, a place where men could openly and freely discuss topics that may otherwise be considered taboo.

This Thursday we look to use that discussion to raise awareness of a great cause by asking the question RUOK?Read This Post
