Get Ready for Summer

Anytime Fitness owner shares his tips for getting in shape by summer.

After a long, snowy winter, we’re ready to spend time on the lakes. We asked Scott Karo, owner of Anytime Fitness clubs in Excelsior and Chaska, for tips on getting ready for bikini weather. Here are his top two:

1. Stay hydrated. Drinking water helps flush your system, and as a bonus, it keeps you from feeling bloated. It also keeps you feeling less hungry.

2. Add weights to your workout routine. Muscle burns more calories than fat. The more muscle mass you have, the more energy your body needs to complete the day’s activities, and the less fat you have.

If you’re looking for a gym to help you shed some winter weight, check out the Anytime Fitness in Excelsior. The 4,600-square-foot location opened last December and is newly renovated, open 24/7 and features classes and certified trainers. The club also offers Fitness on Request, a new group fitness program that allows members to take customized classes at any time of day.
