Is It Time To Start Your Fitness Journey?

How do you know if it’s time to start your fitness journey? The signs are easy to identify. You may feel tired and out of sorts all the time or dowdy and embarrassed to go out in public. Clothes don’t fit right, you don’t have the strength you used to have or you get tired just going up a few steps. These are all symptoms. Other signs may come from the state of your health. High blood pressure, high bad cholesterol, diabetes and other diseases that can come from unhealthy eating and lack of exercise.

If you want to feel good again, start today.

If you spend hours in front of a screen, whether it’s a laptop, work computer, smartphone or television, it’s not healthy. Sitting longer than an hour at a time can actually wipe out some of the gains of exercising regularly. Monitor your time spent sitting and take a break every fifty-five minutes to walk around, do a few squats or whatever it takes to get your blood flowing. If you binge watch TV, make a list of exercises you can do and break it down to ten minute segments. Do one segment every hour to build up 30-45 minutes of exercise as a start. You’ll probably find you want to carve out a time for a regular program of exercise.

Watch what you eat.

A great body starts in the kitchen. If you put junk in, you get junk. Start by eliminating sugar, then move to processed foods, adding more whole foods as you go. Create a well-rounded diet that contains extra vegetables and use fruit or nuts as your snack. Drink more water and eliminate soft drinks from your life. Even diet soft drinks can cause your waistline to grow. Make simple substitutions, such as whole wheat bread for white bread or brown rice for white rice. It boosts nutritional value and cuts calories at the same time.

Get help from a personal trainer.

If you want faster results and don’t feel like you need to reinvent the wheel, get the help of a professional. Personal trainers listen to you. They learn of your goals and any special needs you have. Then they assess your overall fitness, focusing on all four types of fitness. They identify weaker muscle groups, too. Only then does the trainer design a program that’s specifically for you. We offer a money back guarantee, so it’s a win-win for you.

  • Get plenty of sleep. Lack of sleep or poor sleeping habits can play havoc with your body. It disrupts your hunger hormones, creating fewer hormones that make you feel full and more that make you hungry.
  • Drink plenty of water. One of the best cures for a number of ills is water. A glass of water before a meal can make you feel full. Water is also a quicker-picker-upper, boosting your energy level when you’re tired.
  • If you’re working out on your own, make sure your workout includes strength, cardio, flexibility and balance training. Schedule your workout at the same time each day and vary it frequently to avoid plateauing.
  • Make little changes every day. Walk to lunch. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Park further from the store. Carry a healthy snack like nuts or an apple, so you aren’t tempted to buy candy or junk food.
