How to Make Fitness a Lifestyle
Committing to your health and fitness can be difficult at first, but once woven into your lifestyle becomes easier! We’ve put together tangible tips and steps you can take to create a new, awesome habit and ensure the transformation you’re searching for.
Set a Time
First things first, set a time for you to exercise during the day, and stick to it. It’s important to plan and have that time already blocked out. Treat your workout like any other task, and check it off when complete!
Try setting a time each Sunday to plan for your workout schedule ahead. Seeing your workout week will give you a good sense of what your other obligations are that week and how to prepare best for your workouts.
Be Goal-Oriented: Focus on the ‘Why’
When making fitness a part of your lifestyle, you need to set goals for yourself. What are your large and small goals? If your initial goal is to incorporate more movement into your daily routine, small goals such as 20 minutes of movement will fit seamlessly into your day. No matter how involved your goals are, holding yourself accountable to your goals will help you get there faster.
Celebrate your victories! If you’ve fit in your workouts for the week feel proud of the hard work you’ve accomplished! Tools like digital planners or fitness trackers can also help remind you to stay on top of your goals.
Give Your Body the Chance to Adapt
When starting any type of new exercise routine, it’s important to start slow, slowly gain pace and avoid burnout. Jumping into a workout too fast without prior training or preparation can cause injury. Letting your body adapt to your initial workouts and picking up the pace as you go is the best way to start.
Consider training with a FIT Personal Trainer to provide structured guidance and help you meet your fitness goals at a timeline that’s right for you.
Mix up your workouts throughout the week to avoid burnout! Properly implementing this will make sure you won’t get bored of the training you’re doing. Not only will this keep you motivated and interested, but you’ll also use different muscle groups and different stresses on the body. Every time you work out, you cause microscopic strain to your muscles. When your body repairs those muscles, it gets stronger. Splitting up your workouts will give the body a chance to recover without breaking your muscles down over and over.
