Tips to motivate you to keep exercising
When it comes to exercise, variety, a little discipline, and realistic goals will help you really get in shape. Remember that “Rome was not made in one day”. Read on for inspiration.
After all the excess food and calories we almost all eat in December, many people plan to take better care of their health by the month of January. This new awareness usually includes losing weight and getting more exercise. According to a small study conducted at the University of Scranton, Pennsylvania, about one-third of those who make New Year’s resolutions have weight loss as a fundamental objective, while for 15 percent the most important is to start some kind of Exercise program.
Are you by any chance in that group? Do not be discouraged thinking that you have tried other years without great success. Here at Life and health we want to help you. Perhaps the solution lies in seeking inspiration from the most popular types of exercise routines, disciplining you a little more and proposing realistic and realistic goals. Do not give up!
If the idea of continuing the exercise routine that you have been doing does not inspire you or, if you have not been doing anything, we propose the following:
Try something new and fun, like a Zumba class, without going any further. Supporters of this method combining music, dance and exercise have been steadily increasing since 2013 and the momentum is expected to continue into this 2017.
If you can not sign up for a directed gym class, you can purchase a DVD and follow the steps and choreography from the comfort of your home.
To the bar, please. But not to the bar, but to the gym that offer classes inspired by the exercises performed by ballet dancers. The goal is to achieve more flexible and firm bodies, with the elegance of the movements of professional dancers.
Last year, this trend showed an increase of almost 50 percent and most likely will increase more in 2017. Do you inspire this option?
Technology follows in the footsteps and count them!
Devices like Apple Watch or Fitbit and applications associated with training were one of the most popular trends of the last 2 years, with thousands and thousands associated with applications such as Jawbone Up, Runkeeper, MapMyFitness and Strava.
In addition to keeping track of your activities, you will be reminded that you must get moving. An advantage if motivation and / or discipline are not your forte.
Turn up the intensity! High-intensity interval training offers quick results, burns more calories, and offers greater flexibility than other routines. Perhaps that’s why the number of people who selected this type of exercise increased almost 20 percent last year.
Give it a chance in 2017.
The classic still works.
Running, bicycling (including stationary and spinning classes) are still among the most used and proven ways to get fit and stay fit. If you prefer the more traditional methods, then these options are for you.
Whatever method you choose, you must remember that perseverance and perseverance are what will lead you to success.
It’s no good if you try hard one day and give up the next one because you tried too hard that day. Twenty to thirty minutes a day, five days a week is a feasible goal that will allow you to achieve your goals more quickly.
Depending on what you choose to do, some routines may require you to learn the movements with the guidance or supervision of a professional to avoid injury. And remember to do warm-up and stretching exercises before and after your exercise routine.
Accompany your new exercise routine with a healthy diet (nutritious food), balanced (varied) and pay attention to the size of the portions. That way you can see the changes you want in your body.
In addition you will feel better, stronger and relaxed and even sleep much better, among other benefits.
I wish you much success. The important thing is that you do not give up, if you continue with an exercise plan, the advantages for your health will add up over time.
