Three Easy Ways to Make Fitness a Part of Your Lifestyle

Making the decision to exercise and be healthy is a wonderful thing! It is a little tricky at first, but that is only because we are comfortable with our routine and habits. The way to break free from the daily rut is to slowly add fitness into your life in a way that is comfortable, to make the transition a healthy and happy one.
Three easy ways to make fitness a part of your lifestyle
1. Of course, you will need to exercise. This is the hardest part for most people because before you get fit, you lack energy, motivation and results. Fear not new exerciser! The transition toward an active lifestyle is easier than you have imagined. Start by picking a time of the day you ALWAYS have 15 minutes to spare. Even if you have to sacrifice a TV show for a little while, it will be well worth it. In only 15 minutes a day of walking, weight lifting, or even stretching you are setting yourself up for a new, healthy routine. Do this for a week and just try not to increase your workout time to 20 or even 30 minutes.
2. The two birds with one stone approach is finding an activity you enjoy doing and either making it a friend or family event, like cycling weekends on the boardwalk, or joining a social activity group to meet new people. This way you receive double the benefits of seeing and meeting people and exercising, without doing the typical social activities such as dining out or going to the movies.
3. Hire a personal trainer. If you let your trainer know you have not exercised in a long time, or never at all, s/he will go easy to start. A trainer can be a fantastic way to hold yourself accountable while you establish your new healthy lifestyle routines. The longer you work with your trainer the more advanced your routines will become. This way you will not become overwhelmed right from the start. The gradual progression will be encouraging and the results will be motivating.
Once you get into your new routine you may find you absolutely love physical activity. If you are anything like me, it will change your life in hundreds of positive ways and you will be a completely new and forever changed person.
Get Fit!
