How to Jumpstart Your Fitness

Ready to get in shape, but not sure where to start? Get over your fitness hurdles with these tips from the Huffington Post:

  • Recognize that your fitness is important. Living life to its fullest means trying to stay as healthy as possible. And since exercise is a key element of staying healthy, be sure to make time to work out. Scheduling workouts in advance on your calendar can help make them a priority.
  • Do what you enjoy. Whether it’s walking, dancing, biking, or hiking, try to choose an activity that you enjoy doing. You are much more likely to stick with a workout routine if it involves something you like.
  • Look for little moments to move. Governmental guidelines recommend getting 150 minutes of moderate exercise per week. You can easily log this time by getting in a couple 15 minute walks during the work week—for example, you could go for one on your lunch break and another after dinner. Or, try walking around the gym during your daughter’s basketball practice or while your kids play at the park. All the minutes will add up.
  • Use technology to track your progress. If technology or gadgets help motivate you, try using them to track your fitness goals. A pedometer is a good way to track steps. Other gadgets or apps can also track distance, calories burned, or nutrient intake.
