The Importance Of The Warm Down

SweatTheStyle_BrittanyBergmeister-27 SweatTheStyle_BrittanyBergmeister-29Sometimes the first thing we want to do post-workout is hit the nearest market or juice spot and grab a smoothie, yet it’s important to take a few minutes to stretch your muscles and warm down…

It’s important to stretch in order to repair these tears. Some of the obvious reasons for stretching would be to prevent soreness, yet there are other reasons that are significant for your fitness goals and overall health. SweatTheStyle_BrittanyBergmeister-23 Post-workout your muscles are better prepared for stretching due to your tissue being more flexible, making the muscles less prone to injury. Stretching can also help relax your muscles while your heart rate returns to normal.SweatTheStyle_BrittanyBergmeister-22SweatTheStyle_BrittanyBergmeister-21If your goal is increased flexibility; post-workout stretching is very important. Loosening the tight muscles will not only improve your flexibility; but also your strength, endurance and aid overall recovery. Remember to also keep your body hydrated and take the time to center yourself. Appreciate what you’ve just accomplished and your body will thank you for it.

SweatTheStyle_BrittanyBergmeister-19SweatTheStyle_BrittanyBergmeister-17SweatTheStyle_BrittanyBergmeister-14SweatTheStyle_BrittanyBergmeister-18Toronto native model Britt Bergmeister grew up in Japan where she developed a passion for food. While working as a model she’s learned to balance that with an exciting health and fitness regiment. When she’s not on set or traveling for shoots she resides in New York City where she studies nutrition and frequents fitness studios all over the city. Between playing recreational basketball, boxing, running, and yoga Britt makes sure her workouts are fun and interesting. She reps the Six in a Raptors jacket, Sweat Crew bottoms, Nike sports bra and sneakers on NYC’s East River.

Who do you sweat?
I’d get real sweaty if I ran into an NBA player, especially one of the Toronto Raptors 😉
What do you sweat?
I sweat off little annoyances in my day that accumulate over time. I believe if I live positively and with gratitude, karma will do the rest. So if I find myself getting mad about silly, small things I’ll try and go sweat it all off and leave it at the gym.
Where do you sweat?
Anywhere I can! Hotel rooms, my gym, my tiny shoebox living room in NYC. I don’t believe you need a proper gym with all the equipment and machines to get a good sweat in.
When do you sweat?
I find it’s best if I get it done in the morning so I energize myself for the day ahead of me. I try and do a proper workout 5-6 times a week not only because my job requires that I stay fit but because I feel my best self after a good workout. If I show up to a modeling job knowing I’ve worked hard to stay healthy and fit into all the clothes, it feels more worth it to me, like I’ve earned it.
How do you sweat?
I love switching up my workouts to keep them fresh and exciting. I usually start with a little cardio, maybe a 20 minute run. Then I’ll do some ab exercises, leg & butt workouts so I’m targeting my whole body. Sometimes if I’m not feeling a gym workout I’ll go to a yoga class or even follow a yoga Youtube video at home. Whether I’m ‘working out’ or not I’ll always try and be active whether it be biking through the city or walking to all my castings. Hence why I spend 99.9% of my time in activewear 😉
Why do you sweat?
I feel so much better after a workout. My mood is always uplifted, I feel stronger, more powerful and it gives me a jump start to my day and what I set out to accomplish. I also have to stay fit for my job as a model. I want to be a strong, healthy model that is exemplary for younger girls. I have to work hard for the shape I’m in and want to encourage young girls to do the same.
