5 WAYS TO AVOID THE AUTUMN BLUES WITH YOUR PLATINUM MEMBERSHIP!
At the beginning of autumn, we enjoy mild weather and beautiful sunny days. It’s easy to forget that summer is almost over. It’s great! We have to make the most of the beautiful gifts Mother Nature gives us and marvel at the magnificent, coloured landscapes 🍂!
Alas, we know there’s no way to escape that inevitable dreaded grey period that is November. Yes, the cold will gradually (or quickly) set in and the sun will be bidding us farewell before we have even returned home at the end of the day.
And sunny periods are not the only thing that will become shorter. Many people also experience a downturn in their overall mood and energy levels during this infamous period some affectionately call the “autumn blues.”
If you have a Platinum or Extra membership, you should definitely make use of all the benefits these packages offer to pamper yourself to the fullest. Trust us, small everyday actions can really make a difference in increasing your mood and energy this fall. What you need is to cocoon a little, but outside your home, to recharge your batteries. Here are 5 ways to do it, only with the PLATINUM or EXTRA membership at Éconofitness!
1. GET YOURSELF MOVING! 🤸
We all know that being active is a great way to improve our mood and help manage stress levels, but it can still be hard to get yourself to the gym to enjoy these benefits. We understand that some may be lacking motivation, especially when everything outside is grey. Unfortunately, we haven’t yet found the magic bullet to ensure regular visits to the gym. As soon as we find it, we’ll tell you, promise 😉! But we are convinced that these small gestures can really help you better plan your visits to the gym, and even make you want to return:
- Always have your gym bag ready in the car;
- Check out the Éconofitness YouTube channel the day before your visit to get some workout ideas;
- Promise yourself to end your workout with a visit to the Platinum Zone, often referred to as the “Reward Zone,” to reward yourself for coming to the gym;
- Congratulate yourself after every workout! It may sound funny but complimenting ourselves raises our self-esteem and lifts our mood!
2. GET A MASSAGE, OFTEN! 😌
With the Platinum (and Extra) membership, you can take advantage of your time at the gym to enjoy a good massage in the Platinum Zone! Whether you choose a seated massage at the massage chair or a full-body experience on the hydromassage bed, you need to take advantage of the multiple benefits that this therapy can offer you:
Take a few minutes, before or after your workout, to treat yourself a little. It’s completely worth it! You will quickly come to enjoy these little moments of self-care!
3. DISCOVER NEW ÉCONOFITNESS GYMS TO CHANGE UP YOUR ROUTINE 📍
Éconofitness members have the opportunity to be able to work out within the largest network of low-cost gyms in Quebec! The Platinum (and Extra) membership allows the holder to work out at 70 gyms across the province!
- Reduces your stress and anxiety levels;
- Provides a wonderful feeling of well-being;
- Promotes deep relaxation;
- Improves blood circulation; and
- Relieves stiffness and tension.
While it’s great to work out at the gym closest to your home, work or school, it can be really fun to go out and discover new gyms to spice up your daily routine. You can really learn to love other gyms and even meet new workout partners!
4. KEEP YOUR BEAUTIFUL SUMMER TAN ALL YEAR ROUND ☀️
The Platinum (and Extra) membership also allows you to make use of the tanning booths right at the gym. This service, offered to members 18 years and older, is highly appreciated by users, who can take advantage of their visit to the gym to get some sunshine!
When used sensibly, in moderation and safely, tanning can really help us get through that little bout of seasonal depression. Let’s face it, it’s always nice to have a beautiful, slightly tanned complexion! Remember that tanning should be used in moderation and that the use of glasses and protective cream is mandatory.
5. EXPERIENCE GROUP WORKOUTS WITH A LIVE COACH 💪
Trust us, to try it is to love it! Group workouts with a live coach, offered to Extra members in Extra gyms, are a true fountain of energy and happiness to their fans! There’s something for everyone in these workouts, which are offered to suit all fitness levels.
If a group workout with the best coaches in Quebec is something you would like to try, sign up for a Thursday Free Trials, offered on the last Thursday of every month. You’ll leave with a huge smile on your face and a whole lot of energy!
Whether you want to get some exercise, get a massage, or discover new equipment or new workouts, the Platinum membership is without a doubt a solution to the autumn blues. A cocooning experience at the gym? Yes, it’s possible! You will quickly notice a boost in your morale and well-being.
