The biggest problem of starting, and sticking with, a fitness program – is actually doing it. It’s easy to get bored with an exercise program. And once you’re bored, you probably won’t be consistent with your workouts. But if you find a passion for being fit, you’ll make it part of a healthy lifestyle. Here’s how to fall in love with fitness!
Tip #1 – Take Your Workout Outside – Having a home treadmill, elliptical, or exercise bike is a great way to work out whenever you want – especially during summer heat. But with cooler fall temperatures coming up, going for a hike on the weekend, or an early morning run, can help you break up the monotony of indoor workouts. And, in the meantime, try moving your fitness equipment (if possible) to a view of the outdoors while you workout.
Tip #2 – Plan our Workouts Ahead of Time – There’s a saying – “Fail to Plan, and Plan to Fail”. Knowing what you want to accomplish allows you to focus on the workout and your goals. You’re more likely to then achieve the gains you’re looking for, which helps keep you motivated even during those times you’re not in the mood to workout.
Tip #3 – Combine TV Time with Workout Time – You already have you’re favorite shows. Move a TV in front of your workout equipment, and watch your shows while you workout. This can help you keep from feeling like your workouts are taking time away from the rest of your life.
Tip #4 – Commit to 30 Days of Fitness – It takes about 30 days for a habit to form. Sticking with a fitness plan for 30 days help you to ensure that you’re creating a routine!
And, if you’re looking for home fitness equipment to start out with, stop into any of Fitness 4 Home Superstore’s three Phoenix area stores, and talk to our sales consultants about what you wish to accomplish. They can help you find the perfect type of equipment for your fitness goals.
