There is an effective way to move your body without completely losing your mind (and your intentions) along the way. This only requires a little patience and possibly a little attitude adjustment. In this article, we’ll analyze a physical plan that is feasible and doable.
TURN THE ODDS
Change the odds in your favor by choosing an exercise that you really like, rather than opting for something that promises quick results, but makes you throw off your sneakers through a high-rise window so you do not have to leave. The fact that yoga does not promise the same effect as HIIT does not mean it’s not the best option in your case, because if you keep beating the carpet in June while your interval watch keeps picking up dust since February, then you may have to really ask yourself the question – which workout is the most effective?
TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT
Your new favorite thing could be a remote test course. If you feel stuck or bored, or like what you do, but still want to try something new, try something different. This can not only make your routine a little more interesting but also test your body and muscle memory. Are you a cardio queen who avoids strength training? Why not try weight lifting. You will be surprised by the results.
Also, remember that the world of fitness is literally a playground today. There has never been a boom in super-fun workouts, from hip-hop yoga to water biking or mining. You will be so distracted that you will wake up your sense of adventure, while you forget you’re sweating.
GET A PERSONAL TRAINER
The good news is that with so many options in the physical activity market, many gyms and companies offer many incentives to test their courses. Look for offers for new students at your local studios (many locations offer a trial month for a fraction of your regular fee) and compare them until you find a place that’s right for you. Remember, it is more likely to become a habit when the environment is nice and the workout is your speed. So it is now time to be demanding.
On the other hand, through an intensive session with a personal trainer, you will better understand how to focus on your personal goals and finally get you acquainted with these enigmatic machines.
GIVE YOURSELF A BREAK
A break is just as important to avoid wear or injury. You may be tempted to dive into a daily practice routine, but progress (for example, every day) may be a smarter (and more sustainable) route. Do you feel bad but do you still want to move? Go for an active rest, such as a gentle yoga class or an easy walk. And remember that training your brain is always a fair game. The regular practice of meditation offers great health benefits and gives your muscles a respite.
