What do you turn to when you need that extra boost of energy to get you through the morning, the day, or the week? For me, it’s a combination of iced coffee, my favorite power sneakers, and some sort of movement, whether it’s a high-intensity spin class or a walk around the neighborhood while calling a friend (or, in Jeana’s case, walking her dog to the soundtrack of a 2 Chainz-filled playlist).
Feeling low energy can be the result of several different factors. Maybe your nighttime routine isn’t the most conducive to deep, sound sleep. Or maybe something in your diet is off, like you’re not getting enough protein or staying properly hydrated. Ironically, you might even feel tired if you’ve been more sedentary than normal (maybe due to longer hours at the office or feeling mentally drained by the day and skipping your evening workout class).
Here’s what you’ll do in the Power Up Challenge with NOW® Sports
This challenge is going to motivate you to get up and get moving with five quick, Tabata-style workouts, free on the SweatWorking app with coach Rae Reichlin. You’ll start Day One of the challenge with a four-exercise Tabata; each day, you’ll add on one more exercise until you finish Day Five with and eight-exercise Tabata. By adding just one exercise each day, you’ll be training your body (and your brain) to progressively build on your previous work. Small changes add up over time, and in this case, they’ll add up to a higher energy level.
