Spring Training Isn’t Just for Baseball


Spring Training Isn’t Just for Baseball

Spring Training For All!

When you first hear the phrase “spring training”, you might immediately think of baseball and with good reason. But did you know that this concept applies to everyone else as well?

In baseball, spring training is a time for players to get back in game shape after the offseason. For the rest of all, it’s time to get back into living an active lifestyle following the winter.

It’s natural to spend more time indoors and even more time being sedentary during the dark, cold winter. However, now that the days are getting longer and the weather is getting warmer, it’s time to get back outside and get back to being active.

Here are some spring training tips that can benefit all of us!

Start Slow

There’s a reason baseball players don’t jump right into high stakes games immediately after the winter. It takes some time to get back to the level you were at before. Easing yourself back into your workout routine gives your body time to adjust. You don’t want to injure yourself by going too hard too fast.

Try Something New

In baseball, players who are new to their teams or to their positions use the early spring to get used to an unfamiliar situation. You can put yourself in similar shoes by trying something new with your spring workouts. You don’t need to do the same stuff you’ve always done. Sometimes switching it up is exactly the motivation you need.

Give Yourself Goals

Setting goals and working towards them can be very motivating. Baseball players usually set goals for their seasons during the early spring, so you can do the same with your workouts.

Why are you exercising? What do you want to accomplish? It doesn’t have to just be about losing weight or looking great (though it certainly can be). Your goal could be having more energy, feeling better, helping reduce stress, making it easier to fall asleep at night, or just about anything.

Once you know why you’re doing this, set some concrete goals with timelines. For instance, you might decide that you want to be able to jog a certain distance without stopping. That’s a great goal because it’s specific! Set a date for accomplishing that goal and work towards it.

Happy spring training!
