We’re fast approaching the season of bathing suits, tank tops, shorts, t-shirts and flip-flops. Of weekends at the beach, days at the pool, barbecues. Of drinks with little umbrellas, of sunglasses and sunscreen.

Oh yeah, and endless articles about how to get that bikini body, or beach body, or summer body, or bathing suit body in time to enjoy your summer. So, I thought I ‘d write a post about how I achieve my summer/beach/bathing suit/bikini body. Trust me, no matter where you are in your fitness journey, you can do it too.

The equation for getting your summer/bikini/bathing suit body is really simple. Incredibly simple. Could not be simpler.

Pool

You have a body. It is summer. Therefore you have a summer body.

Alternatively, you have a body. You have a bathing suit. Put the latter on the former and, abracadabra, you have a bathing suit body.

And finally, you have a body. You have a bikini. Put the latter on the former and, ta-da, you have a bikini body.

I know I’m being a bit glib here, but honestly, you deserve to enjoy your summer, swim in a pool or hang out on the beach. Those things are some of the great joys of the summer season. And you don’t deserve it based on the size, shape or weight of your body. You deserve it because you’re a human being, and you get to enjoy all the amazing things life has to offer.

Your body is the only one you’re going to get and you need its participation in order to take advantage of all the great things about summer. So, put on something you’re comfortable in, lather on some SPF and get on with it. Have fun, stay cool and make some awesome summer memories!
