Trainer tips - What’s your favorite rest day activity?

Trainwell Trainers

Everyone needs to have some chill down time. That can look different for each of us. We asked our trainers their favorite ways to relax when they aren’t working or are taking a day off from their workout routines.

Get outside! Take the dog on a walk, find a new hike, or if it's sunny go to a brewery with outdoor seating.

I do literally nothing, put my phone on do not disturb, and snuggle up with my dog Mollie while binging on a show or movie that I've been wanting to see.

I enjoy walking my dog, Cooper and watching movies or getting outside for a hike!

When I take a rest day, I read a book, take my dog for a walk. In the summer go paddle boarding with my dog, plus swimming!

I go into rest days with an open mind to relax and chill out. If I want to get some movement in doing something that's fun I’ll go on a walk, shoot hoops at the park, or just enjoy some outdoors time.

My rest days include walking or hiking with the family, yard work, and chasing around a toddler.

I love taking long hikes with my partner and our dogs. Immersing myself in nature is an incredible recharge to my mental and spiritual health. I enjoy following up our outdoor adventures with a great meal and maybe a stop at an outdoor brewery to soak up some more sunshine with suds.

Play with my kids on the playground or at the trampoline park, take a family walk around the neighborhood and down to our duck pond nearby, play hide and seek with my kids, go ice skating with the family are my favorite rest day activities.

When I’m taking a rest day I enjoy playing sports, watching Netflix, or calling and talking to friends. The best is going to the movie theater and watching a movie!

When I need to recharge I’ll go on a hike or walk outside and then play some video games!

I'm a major homebody so I love just chilling on the couch with the kiddo and dog watching Netflix.

Walking my dog, going rock climbing, going to the beach (when I still lived in Florida lol), and binge watching Netflix are my big rest day activities.
