4 Simple Steps To Get Moving before the New Year
As the New Year starts, we suggest that you take care of your fitness even more. The reason is that the holiday celebrations last around 3 months and end in the unwanted weight gain, which people carry to the next year. Even though workouts and diets may seem too out of context during this festive time, but starting a fitness program may be one of the best things you can do for your health. Having said that, it is not usually so easy to take on a fitness regime – especially in this busy, end of the year schedule, – and stick to it to improve both, your health and lifestyle. Here we have put together five simple steps that can help you make the most of your health and improve your physical fitness.
Step One: Initial Assessment!
It is important that you assess yourself and understand the kind of fitness workout that suits your body and your fitness needs. Have an idea of how it is going to fit you. Both, your fitness workout and your results will be dependent on your expert level – a beginner or a pro athlete –, your age, and your sex. When you have some basic idea of how fit are you, you can set your benchmark score that will help you measure your progress.
Step Two: Sticking the Plan!
Know your goals:
Do you want to lose weight, maintain it or want to get the muscle mass? Whatever is your goal, your workout will differ accordingly.
Make it a Routine:
Choose a workout that you can adjust in your routines daily. It should suit your personality so that you do not get bored while doing it. Plus, you need to make time for the exercise routine so that you can adjust it in your busy schedules.
Put down every change you see in your weight and body measurements on the paper. This will encourage you to stay on track.
Sometimes you need to put in extra effort to get into the best shape of your life. Investing in exercise equipment is one of the best ways to achieve it. Starting from fitness gear such as track suit, jogging shoes, gloves, and exercising gadgets including calorie watch counters, fuel wristbands, and wearable fitness trackers to bum bells, barbells and other heavy equipment, you can buy anything that will help you as you begin your fitness program.
Step Four: Get Started!
Now that you have everything in check, you are ready to begin your fitness regime. Here are some points that will help you initiate the routines:
Break things up:
You cannot take all the things on the day one (or week one). So, it is better to start with shorter sessions that are ease to perform. One you start getting used to it, switch to intense routines, and build gradually.
You do not have to follow everything your trainer is asking you to do. Understand your body and follow your own routine that is easy for you. Be creative in making the routines fun, more active, or even intense – if it will help you.
Listen to your body. If you feel pain, dizziness, shortness of breath, it can mean that you are pushing yourself too hard. Give yourself permission to cool down or even take a break from it once in a while, without feeling guilty about it.
It is time to begin your routines now. Follow these steps to start exercising and getting fit without overwhelming yourself doing it. Just careful planning and proper packing can help you establish a habit that will last a lifetime.
