We all have those friends who are beacons of fitness. Those people in our lives that seem to have everything together – the parent, the executive and the one always posting about a great run or sore abs from a new exercise. If you’ve been scrolling through your feed, wondering how you can possibly be so good at exercise, take a breath. It all boils down to consistency. It is possible, with a little work and determination, to become good at exercise.
Make Exercise Part Of Your Life
Maintaining a healthy weight is all about diet and exercise. You are not trying a fad workout where you will complete ten DVD's and then put them away. You are trying to set a path for your life. Daily fitness is about keeping yourself healthy for all of those that need you. Daily exercise is the slow and steady motto that will help you win the race.
We all have ten to twenty minutes a day that we can carve out. If you are a Mom, perhaps this is when your littles are down for a nap. If you are working your way through grad school, this is the transition time between class and homework. If you are a morning person, this time is before the sun comes up.
Do Not Workout Alone
Working out with someone will make you more accountable. You do not need to have this person there in person. Find a friend on social media who has a similar schedule and lifestyle to your own. Post to each other about your workout, how it was, the duration and how you feel. Knowing you owe it to your friend to complete your workout, in order to inspire her to complete hers, will keep you motivated.
Love Your Workout
A way to make exercise a part of your day is to make it something that you want to do. If you always feel tense and tight, opt for yoga or pilates to stretch out. If you struggle with being motivated, reach for a program with a great trainer.
Ease The Pressure
Finally, working out should not stress you out. In fact, it should do the opposite, helping you reduce stress. With help from professional trainer Ralph Roberts you can not only change the way that you look in the mirro, but change the way that you look at exercise.
