( — December 23, 2013) Clarksburg, MD Washington DC 20011 – In preparation for the holidays, Spa Dealers Washington DC has published some health tips.  “The parties, food, hectic shopping and travel of the holiday season makes for the perfect storm when it comes to keeping up with fitness routines,” said Joe Mahoney, president of Capital Hot Tubs.


 “Added stress from the fast-paced atmosphere, extra demands of hosting parties or traveling to relatives homes increase the difficulty of keeping mentally as well as physically fit. Don’t let the holidays destroy everyone’s fitness and health,” continued Mahoney. Stay in shape and keep everyone in the family sane through the holidays this year with these three tips for holiday fitness survival.


Pack For Fitness – Leaving home for the holidays? When the family has to travel to celebrate with others, don’t forget to take the fitness supplies that will help everyone stay on track. Packing for fitness doesn’t have to mean a lot of extra bulk. A mat to make floor work easier no matter what the surface is to work with, and loose clothes to make it more comfortable to work out are all that is really needed.


If there doesn’t seem to be any time in the day to get a workout in when visiting relatives, get up a little bit earlier than normal and start the day off right. Working out first thing in the morning, before everyone else has begun to rise will allow the rest of the day to be guilt free when there are a few extra calories and reduce stress that comes from crossing time zones, dealing with family issues and just running around.


Achieve a Zen State – The holidays are stressful even if the family stays home. Whether visiting relatives out of state, or hosting get-togethers at home, relieving stress and staying focused can be difficult. Take the time to zone in on inner needs and mediate in a quiet place. Even a few minutes of meditation at the beginning and end of the day can make dealing with rambunctious relatives and rushing around to meet all of the demands of the holidays easier.


Get Into Hot Water – Even though dealing with extended family during the holidays can sometimes feel like a prolonged session in stress and it is easy to get into hot water during arguments, sometimes hot water is a good thing. Soak for 20 minutes at the end of the day in a soothing hot tub to release all of the stress of the day’s events.


Soaking in a hot tub can also help improve cardio health and even produce the beneficial effects of exercise when there isn’t time to keep up with normal routines. According to a study by Dr. Bruce E. Becker, clinical professor at the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine at the University of Washington, immersion in a hot tub improves cardiac function by increasing the volume of blood being pumped through the system.


That means that sitting in a hot tub is equivalent to an aerobic workout. The extra oxygen in the blood that comes from sitting in a hot tub also decreases stress, improves brain function and allows for a better night’s sleep, no matter how stressful the day has been.


“To help educate the public on how hydrotherapy can help improve overall health and well-being we will provide free hot tub test soaks in our 2 locations during the entire month’ said Mahoney. We suggest that consumers just call us ahead of time to schedule their free 30-minute soak so they can check out the benefits for themselves.”
