There is only one method to stay in shape!

The key to staying in shape

There is one, an ultimate, undeniable method to stay in shape! Fell in love with being active!

Do you want to stay in shape, feel good in your body and stop forcing yourself to go to the gym? There is only one way to do it! You have to fell in love with being active!

Of course, that is easy to say. But how should that work in reality? We all know that forced love usually does not end well ;). And for sure I don’t want you to end up broken-hearted!

Here are a few tips:

  • start easy

Starting small is important. Everything needs time! Small steps at the beginning will take you much further in the future. Start your exercises twice per week at a beginner level. You don’t need to end your training sweaty and exhausted. Give yourself a rest whenever you need it during the workout, do not overdo! You will remember train with pain, and it will be much harder to motivate yourself next time to stand up from the couch and train. You will see that after a few weeks or months you will feel stronger and be able to give more on each training and stay in shape.

 

  • keep it interesting

Do gym exercises, and aerobics makes you feel bored and unmotivated already when you think about it?

I totally understand! I do not enjoy it so much as well, instead find your passion! There are plenty of different kind of classes offers now. Staying in shape and healthy doesn’t mean you have to go to the gym.

Are you getting goosebumps while watching “Dirty Dancing” or you have never missed an episode of “You can dance”? Try dancing! Training any dance style is a perfect exercise plus you will learn some moves you can later use on the dancefloor!

Try to think about anything you always liked to try, maybe as a child, perhaps now. Something that looks cool for you or you are always impressed by people who can do something particular.There is no better motivation than finding joy in what you do and want to learn something new!

 

  • together always better

Are you a busy person and you don’t want training to take away these few hours that you have for yourself, your family and friends?

Sorry, but that is not an excuse! Even better, take your daughter, boyfriend, friend or sister and start training together. You will keep each other motivated, and the work out will be much more fun. Maybe you will even bond stronger?

 

  • eat smart

You need your energy and being hungry will make you feel more like staying under a blanket and not losing any more power instead of working out.  It is important to eat healthily to stay in shape. Get rid of sugar and sweets, white bread and fast- foods. Eat more proteins and eat regularly. For healthy recipes and diet bits of advice visit: “taste of health”.

 

  • water, water, water

  • feel pretty

If you are a fashion lover or like to dress up check out “justfirefits” for inspirational work- out looks!  You can add a bit of makeup- use waterproof mascara and body spray. Avoid fluids as your skin should be able to breathe during your training. Invest a bit in your training outfit, and you won’t be able to wait to try them on!

 

  • make new friends
