How To Get Up Off Your Ass And Exercise!

One of the many different things we love to do is to have discussions on different topics.  A few weeks ago I asked the team for tips on how to get started on a fitness journey.  Most people want to exercise but have no clue where to even begin so because we believe in sharing useful information if you are a beginner or are a regular and just need some motivation this read is for you.

  1. Set realistic goals!
  2. Do not restrict yourself.  Workout in or outdoors and find out which environment is best suited for you.
  3. Watch what you eat.  Do not starve yourself and go on a spinach and water diet all day.  You can still enjoy food but make smart choices.  Take time to think and prepare, no one started an expert.
  4. You need to eat, without that your metabolism will slow down and that causes weight gain.
  5. Experts say it takes 21 days to break a habit.  Make exercise a habit, that way you will miss it when you don’t do it.

  6. Your muscles need time to recover so REST and stretch.  Stretch before and after a workout and also on rest days.
  7. We live in a world of technology, don’t be left behind!  Download an application that will help you track your exercise progress.
  8. Build your body by incorporating resistance training, cardio workout and healthy eating.  Different cardio workouts include walking, running, swimming and bike riding.
  9. “Feel” your workout, don’t just do the numbers without actually doing your routines in proper form.
  10. ASK QUESTIONS; especially to those who are already on the journey and have visible results.  If you don’t ask you might not see the results that you want.

  1. Great post! A lot of people tend to lose motivation a few weeks after starting a new plan but one of the biggest things to remember is that changes take time. I love to follow other fitness trainers because they motivate me even when I’ve hit a low. Keep up the great work!

      Thank you for reading Melanie. I went through the same thing when I started my fitness journey. The highs and lows were a real demotivation but once I realised that i needed to be easy on myself and take it one day at a time things got better. I just followed your blog and I can’t wait to see what you have on your page 🙂
