If year after year you make the same New Year's resolutions to lose weight and get in shape, here are some tips to help you achieve your fitness goals. If you start with these 3 tips, you may never have to make the same resolutions again!
#1: BE CONSISTENT.
The fastest and most efficient way to have success in fitness is to be consistent with your workouts and eating plan. This is listed as #1 because it is the key to losing weight and getting in shape.
To be consistent, make sure to set realistic workout and diet goals and try to stick with it week after week, making these goals part of your everyday routine. This does not mean doing hard, aggressive workouts and abnormally longer than normal workouts. These type of workouts often lead to exhaustion and can slow down your progress because your recovery time is longer.
If you miss a workout or fall off track with your diet, don't give up, pick up right where you left off the next day! Try not to take multiple days off at a time or you might find that you start to experience the yo-yo effect...lose weight, gain weight, lose weight, gain weight, etc.
#2: START AT THE RIGHT PLACE AND PACE FOR YOU.
Base your starting point upon your current fitness level and exercise at a comfortable pace that you can maintain. Remember, it doesn’t matter where your starting point is, it matters how great your results are from now on. As your body progresses, so will the pace of your workouts.
Also, set your starting point based on how you feel after the workouts. You should feel refreshed and energized, not tired and sore. If you start at the right place and pace for you, you will reap the benefits of consistent and steady results.
#3: HAVE FUN!
You have to make sure that you are enjoying your workouts; otherwise, in time you will think of every possible excuse to skip them. Choose activities that are fun for you and time will fly by while you get in shape.
Think of exercise the way kids think of playing outside with other kids. You’re getting a great workout, but you don’t realize it’s happening because you’re having so much fun doing it!
I will see you at your next workout!
Look Younger. Feel Stronger. Live Longer.
