We all know that exercise is good for us.
Those of you who exercise regularly already know how great it makes
you feel so you can skip this write-up and go straight to choosing
from our specially selected fitness supplements, those who don't
should perhaps read on and get some inspiration.
You need to think of exercise as something that will benefit you
and not as a tedious chore. It can take some time to adjust from
a sedentary lifestyle to an active one, but once you’ve been
exercising for 6-8 weeks it’s very likely that you’ll
carry on for the rest of your life (even if you don’t like
the idea of exercise now). The difference it will make to your weight
loss and to your general health will be so tremendous you won’t
want to stop!
It can be a great help if you actually think of what your body
is doing as you exercise. Try to imagine the blood coursing through
your veins and arteries, burning up fat as it goes through your
body. As you warm up and then get hot, think of the fat literally
melting away. Picture this in your mind and think of yourself getting
slimmer and leaner.
If you haven’t exercised for some time you will probably
get a ‘rush’ from the extra oxygen intake during your
3rd or 4th session. Breath deeply and enjoy this as much as you
can. It’s free and it feels great! When you get this feeling,
reinforce the pact with yourself to carry this on for at least 4
weeks. The longer you exercise, the easier and more effective it
Once you start slowly and notice how much better exercise makes
you feel, you’ll soon start to really enjoy keeping fit (especially
when you see the benefits on the scales!). One of the key factors
in choosing effective exercise is finding something that you actually
enjoy doing. Exercise should be fun, not a chore. Many people find
cycling, tennis, swimming, jogging, or aerobics classes are great
fun. The more you enjoy an activity the more often you will do it,
and it is regular exercise that will provide the greatest benefits.
you are really not very fit you should start out by just going for
a walk for maybe 20-30 minutes, 2 or 3 times a week (longer if you
can manage it) you’ll soon notice the improvement. As you
become more accustomed to this, try to increase the length of the
walk and the number of walks each week. You can also slot exercise
into your daily life without it seeming like exercise. By walking
to the shops instead of taking the car, walking up stairs instead
of using the lift etc. you will burn extra calories without even
knowing! And you’ll be surprised at how quickly you can adjust
to this new life-style and start to enjoy these little walks, especially
if you think of the good they’re doing you while your walking.
If you fancy it after a while then maybe you could join an evening
class to help with fitness. Most areas have Adult Education classes
which are much cheaper than going to the gym, and probably a lot
less intimidating (though you might actually prefer the convenience
of using a gym whenever suits you). Whatever you choose to do just
