Plan your activities before spending any money or time. A personal trainer, the web, or friends that are into fitness can help you.
Do what you enjoy. If the fitness program you attempt to do is so difficult or boring that you won’t stay with it, or look for excuses not to avoid doing it, then it isn’t the right one for you.
Vary the fitness activities that you do. Cardio training on a treadmill, bike, elliptical, stepper or rower, is only one part of the fitness equation. Pick a strength training routine that you can also incorporate into your fitness regime. An excercise ball, dumbbells, stretch tubing, or other small accessory items can provide the means to help you add to your fitness program. And visa versa. Adding cardio to your strength training will pay huge dividends.
Make a positive change to your eating habits, however small, to compliment your fitness routine. Drink more liquids, eat low sugar or sugar free deserts, eat more vegetables and fruit. The list is endless. Consult the Canadian Food Guide For Healthy Eating.
Get started as soon as you can. We can all procrastinate, but once we get started we all seem to enjoy the experience. You don’t have to do everything at once. Beginning with one activity regularly and adding to it as time and funds allow will allow you to become fitter.
