4 Fantastic Ways to Beat the Holiday Blues at Element Fitness

“Holiday Blues” is defined as a time of sadness or depression around the holidays, generally in November and December. This can happen to anyone and is often brought on by high stress and emotion during that time of year. Luckily, there are healthy ways to beat those holiday blues. Join us at Element Fitness, the premier Nunawading gym, and try out these four ways to improve your mood through the holidays!

Get In A Christmas Workout With 24 Hour Service

It isn’t always something that we want to hear, but sometimes it is good to have the reminder (and is something we need to hear): your body needs exercise. This is especially true when going into times of high stress or depression. Physical activity stimulates chemicals in the brain, raising serotonin and releasing endorphins. This combination increases the overall feeling of happiness and reduces stress and depression.

 

For individuals with a crazy holiday schedule, Element Fitness offers unlimited access to the Nunawading gym 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. So if you need to get in that early workout before all the holiday shopping starts, want to get away from the family for a few hours, or just don’t want to miss that Christmas workout, we’ve got you covered!

Make New Connections At Group Classes

At Element Fitness, we understand that working out alone can be a little intimidating. That’s why we offer a wide range of fitness classes perfect for raising your spirits and, perhaps, your social status. Human beings are social creatures and are naturally inclined to make social connections. However, the holidays can be a hard time for those who have lost connections with friends or family. Getting into a productive, motivational setting with like-minded individuals can be a great way to improve your mood and create new connections.

 

Classes offered at Element Fitness Include aerobics and dance classes, cardio classes, flexibility and mobility classes, functional classes, strength classes, and wellness and yoga classes.

Get Motivated With A Personal Trainer

Don’t wait until New Year’s to muster up the motivation to make it into the gym. Get started today with a personal trainer. Element Fitness offers certified personal trainers who have been registered with Fitness Australia. Choose between one of our top trainers to create the right “holiday blues” workout for you.

Relax And Rejuvenate In Our Sauna

With all the planning, traveling, shopping, and cooking that happens around the holidays, it’s no wonder people end up being stressed. It happens to the best of us. Take some time to destress and decompress in Element Fitness’s sauna. The gentle heat & 100% humidity relaxes your body, easing muscles and soothing away the cares of the day.

 

Not only can sauna use promote additional weight loss post-workout, but it can also improve heart, lung, and mental health. Tension released during exposure to the humid heat reduces stress on the physical body and, therefore, relieves stress on the brain.

However you choose to use fitness to beat those holiday blues, let us be there with you at Element Fitness – your favourite Nunawading gym!
