The world has learned that having some kind of physical activity is a healthy way to live.
Well, this is as old as time itself but in the recent years it has been popularized.
So now everyone knows it is good for both the body and the mind yet there aren’t that many people that are actually doing it.
Even though there are a lot of choices like weight lifting, resistance training, fitness, aerobics or pilates, people find excuses not to exercise.
Fitness is one of the greatest ways to keep your body into shape. It is very effective when it comes to fat burning and muscle toning. There are a variety of very different exercises that will allow everyone a great body workout.
Another great thing about fitness is that it doesn’t require any expensive fancy equipment or a gym membership. So anyone who feels that the gym is expensive or doesn’t have a gym near can do it at home.
Apparently this is not the real issue. The possibility of doing fitness at home is a general fact, and everyone knows that. The problem is the lack of motivation. What is important for achieving results with fitness or any other type of exercise is doing it for some period.
This is where the motivation plays its biggest part. In order to keep going you have to be motivated. You don’t feel like it but you have to, and this does not only happen to you, it is also happening to your girlfriends. To avoid this when exercising it is of vital importance to pick a target, to have a goal.
“I want to fit into those pants” or “I have to wear that dress” are great examples of picking a target. This will make you going for it even when you don’t feel like it.
Another great thing to do is to make your friends join you. Make them do fitness with you or follow the same program at home. This way you will not be alone in this and you will always have a support and additional motives.
What goes around comes around, so if you are the motivator once, next time it will be someone else, so everyone will have someone to motivate them when he is about to quit. That is what is so great about it. It turns out that the coffee gang can become the fitness gang…it’s up to you.
