Fitness Round-up: Do you believe in fitness myths?

The school holiday is nearly here, maybe your children have already started enjoying the joys of not waking up early and just taking it easy and relax.

I love summer holiday as the day after my girls break up, we are booked on a flight back home to the Czech Republic. We tend to spend the whole of summer holiday there, which gives them lots of time to spend with their family and friends, and also to practise Czech language.

Summer for many means to stop following their fitness routines due to lack of child care. Why not to team up with a fellow mum from school and take turns and stick to your routines?

There are many ways to keep fit with your children, and summer holiday is the perfect time to do so. By the way, have you read My Top Tips to Get Out & Keep Active yet? I am also GIVING AWAY a fantastic TomTom Spark Cardio + Music GPS Fitness Watch Worth £189.99!

Last weekend was a great example of how we as parents can enjoy being active with our children when we were celebrating the Great British Tennis Weekend with lots of free activities running all over the country.

I believe that many of you were following the Wimbledon updates, and I got so excited when a Czech tennis player Tomas Berdych got into the semi-final with Andy Murray. Both my girls were watching with me, and it was especially hard for my older one to decide whom to support, but I could tell her heart was supporting the great British tennis player, which of course is fine with me.

The title of this post is “Do you believe in fitness myths”, and let me explain why. Not long ago Simply Marina started joining my #FitnessTuesday linky over at my fitness blog Fitness 4 Mamas, and I am so pleased for her doing so. She wrote 6 Fitness Myths I Didn’t Want to Believe, which I found very interesting. Do you agree with any of these, and would you add any more?

A few years back, just when I was trying to get back in shape after my second pregnancy, I attended a few Zumba classes. Unfortunately thanks to very un-inspirational instructors and lack of support, I gave up. Reading Kate’s updates on her fitness journey and her love for Zumba makes me think I should give it another go. Do you Zumba?

Juliet has started a very popular interview series about Active Women, head over and read some amazing stories!

Lately I am much more open to both yoga and pilates, and have already booked a few pilates classes from September. I also know that with all my other fitness routines there simply is not enough time for me to do it all, but I also know that I need to slow down and get rid of all the negative energy and stress that has been in my life especially in past few months. I was very pleased to see 3 Free Meditation Apps to help you relax and refocus by Yogaberry, I will definitely be giving these a go.

Last but not least a few mentions of my favourite sport ever, running. Sarah and her husband have both beaten their personal best on 5km while Darktea is wondering if running was for her after listening to a very inspirational speech of Julie (whom I chatted for a bit at the Running Awards this january) at BritMums Live conference.

Hope that this month’s fitness round-up will be an inspiration for you all, and don’t forget to tweet me your links for the next one via @Fitness4Mamas or leave a link in a comment below.
