SWEAT TODAY, SMILE TOMORROW
Working out is something the most of us would like to do more. Every beginning is hard, but sticking with it even more.
In the winter, exercise can disappear from our weekly planning completely. This doesn’t mean we should stop trying. Are you someone who never works out? Or have you just woken up from hibernation? Let’s get started:
Set your goals
It's important to decide what you want to accomplish before you start your fitness journey. This way you can adjust your goals to give you the fastest results. If you want to lose weight and burn fat efficiently, you should do cardio. These are high-intensity activities such as swimming, jogging or playing squash. If you want to build up muscle tissue, you should do strength training and exercise with weights.
If you’re experiencing a medical condition or other physical complaints you should first consult your general practitioner.
From “I really don’t want to workout” to “I can’t wait to exercise again”
When you start your sports adventure it's important to stick with it. Decide how many times per week and on what days you’ll work out. You can use numerous workout apps to track your results. These apps can also work as a reminder for when you’re working out. Beware! If you’re just starting out you have to be careful with building up your activity. By letting your body get used to all these new movements you might prevent your muscles from getting tired. If you still end up with tired muscles, use Aloe Heat Lotion to loosen up your muscles with a massage. Invaluable in every sports bag!
USEFUL TIP: MAKE A FITNESS APPGROUP WHERE YOU ONLY POST ‘DONE’ WHEN YOU’VE DONE A WORKOUT. WHEN YOU SEE ALL YOUR FRIENDS POSTING THEY’VE WORKED OUT, YOU CAN’T STAY BEHIND!
Nothing comes for free
To keep yourself motivated and to develop a routine it’s important to reward yourself. Don’t choose chocolates or a bag of chips (don’t waste all your effort!), but reward yourself with an evening of watching your favorite tv show. You can also indulge yourself at the sauna or experience these wonderful sensations at home with the Aroma Spa Collection. A perfect way to completely come to your senses.
Start NOW and jog around the block, what are you waiting for?
