4 Keys to Fitting Exercise Into Your Day and Keep Your New Year’s Resolution!
By Sarah Mulaner, President Imagine Fitness
Was your New Year’s Resolution to exercise 30-60 minutes most days? I know it’s a matter of time, but you will notice the difference in your body, your mind and you outlook. Here are 5 Keys to make it easy to achieve your goal:
- Go out for a brisk walk, sign up for a spin class or a running program, take your kids out for a bike ride. Zumba is an option for those who love dance workouts and music!
- Make it convenient, make a space in your house for exercise equipment, weights, an exercise DVD. Skipping is an inexpensive way to get amazing cardio. You may hire a trainer to keep you on track and show you how to get the most out of your program.
- Find a buddy to go to the gym with, encourage and motivate each other. Those who work out with a friend or a trainer will see 5x better results that those who “try” to exercise on their own. You won’t waste time, energy or enthusiasm and you’ll see the body composition changes you’re looking for.
4. Practical Exercises, no equipment needed! Try the plank on your elbows, squats/walking lunges with body weight or hand weights if you have them, pushups off the stairs or on the floor. Make it a daily habit and you’ll feel great in no time.
Remember that exercise releases feelings of stress and improves sleep. The rush of endorphins that occurs when you exercise intensely helps improve your sense of wellbeing and improves your body’s ability to burn fat. You will lose weight, feel more energetic and sleep more soundly.
