It’s no secret that if you want to stay healthy, strong, and able to live a full life you have to keep off the excess fat. It’s also not news that in order to keep the fat off you have to find healthy exercise plans. There are many forms of exercise you can do that will help keep your waistline trim, in this articles I’ll give you a few ideas.
One important note, make sure you talk to your doctor before you start any diet and exercise plan. Even the best routines can be dangerous to you if you have underlying health issues. This is even more true if you are taking medications for various health problems.
Many people think that they’ve failed before so why would this time be any different? Well, whether or not it’s different, will depend on you. The best way to make sure you succeed is to find something that you actually like to do. Healthy exercise plans will require you to find something that you don’t actually consider to be a chore. You have to be willing to expand your mind, get out of the ’30 minutes on the treadmill’ rut.
So, question number 1 is to ask yourself what you like to do? Do you like the water? If so, than swimming might be a good option. It can help you get a great workout, it’s easier on the joints than just about anything else and it can be fun.
If you like to dance, there are a ton of options available. There are a lot of classes that incorporate various types of dances into a workout. I recently went to a seminar where I saw a demonstration of a dance workout, it looked like a lot of fun and a great workout. When you can combine fun and workout, it will be a lot easier to stick with it.
How about walking, biking, hiking, etc. If you like bird watching than a brisk hike in the woods can help you accomplish two things at once, you can get a great workout while looking at all the interesting bird species in your area.
One of my newest favorite exercises is yoga. I’ve just started so I’m not that good at it but the thing I like most is the fact that I can get a great workout and relax at the same time. It sounds weird I know, but the specific patterns of breathing helps me feel a high level of relaxation. It’s also a lot more difficult of a workout than you might think.
In most areas of my life I’m kind of a multi-tasker, being able to get two out of one with my workouts is right up my alley!
Getting in shape and losing the excess weight will be much easier when you find good healthy exercise plans. Don’t worry about fitting in to what the ‘experts’ tell you to do. Instead find something that you find interesting and fun to do. The more you enjoy your workout the more often you’ll do it and the longer you’ll stick to it.
