Get Fit and Be Healthy in 2017
With the dawning of 2017 comes new goals and resolutions to keep, and getting fit is almost always at the top of any list you’ll see. The new year offers everyone a clean slate to start over fresh, and finally be all the things you wish you had been last year.
While getting fit is a noble goal, it also takes dedication which lasts more than just the first few weeks of January. To kick start your journey to better health, and stay on track for all of 2017, check out these tips from Quick RX Refill.
1. Don’t Rush Your Results: The first mistake anyone can make when working toward losing weight, is to strive for big results in a short amount of time. Not only does it take your body time to get used to drastic changes in nutrition and exercise, but it takes time for results to begin to show. It’s better to have a long-term goal, and make life changes with positive outcomes than to start a fad diet that will help you drop pounds fast, but cause you to struggle to keep them off the rest of the year.
2. Customize Your Workout: No two bodies are exactly alike, so why would your neighbor’s workout style give you the results you want? Each muscle group can be targeted with specific exercises. Your body type may require more or less cardio or muscle toning than somebody else’s. A great way to determine the best workout for you is to book a session with a trainer.
Personal trainers can be a drain on the pocket book, so if you aren’t prepared to spend money on your health goals just yet, look for a gym which offers a free initial session with a trainer to get you started. During the session, be sure to ask about nutrition and exercise tips that are customized to your body type and fitness goals.
3. If You Can’t Find Time, Make It: Life is hectic, and it can be difficult to fit a workout in between a career, family, chores, and extracurricular activities. Sometimes it helps to incorporate workouts into everyday routines. Climbing the stairs to put laundry away? Make a few extra trips up and down to work the legs. Live close to the office, but usually drive? Plan to commute via bicycle, or see if a nearby colleague wants to share a walk to work twice a week.
4. Change Your Eating Habits: One of the biggest complaints trainers hear is that the pounds won’t seem to budge, no matter how many squats are done. No amount of exercise can truly make you healthy if you’re still filling your body with empty calories. What you put into your body both fuels and shapes it, so if you want to feel healthy, you need to eat healthy as well. This doesn’t mean you must cut out all your favorite things, but it does mean working on portion control, and eating as much fresh, natural food as you can.
Make this year’s new year resolution the best one yet by creating a long-term approach to reaching your fitness goal. If you can stay on track with your journey to better health, then next year you may not need a resolution at all.
Remember to speak to your family physician before undertaking any drastic changes in your life. This is especially true if you have previous health conditions, or are on medications which require specific nutritional elements to remain the same.
Happy New Year, and good luck in all your healthy endeavors for 2017!
