Dear Friends & Family of LapSF and the Surgical Weight Loss Center of Hawaii,

It looks like if we want May flowers there must be Spring showers, but do not let this interrupt the exercise program you have just adopted! For all those whom venture outdoors for your workouts, I challenge you to give indoor activities a try so you never skip a day.


Here are a couple of "Rainy Day" workout tips.


1. Keep a few workout DVDs on hand that you can do in the comfort of your own home. I would choose a video that looks fun to you and also has minimal equipment needed. There is a large market for workout videos which makes the possibilities endless. If you just started to adopt a exercise regimen, I would suggest choosing a workout video for beginners such as the one below from "The Biggest Loser!" personal trainer, Bob Harper.



2. Utilize indoor facilities where you can walk while being shielded from the rain. A great place would be your local shopping mall or warehouse foodstore. Most shopping mall s and large stores are big enough that you can walk at a brisk pace and still get great mileage in. (Important tip: Do not bring wallet with you to prevent unnecessary shopping, and make a conscious effort to not walk near the food court to prevent temptation.)
