If you would like to be fit and stay healthy, you also have to understand that there is no gain without pain. In fact it is your body that will tell you how, when and why you need to work out to keep fit. For some people it is definitely an effort getting up early or finding time to visit a gym, but once you get started and begin to feel the benefits, working out can become a healthy habit for you too. Using the guidance of a personal trainer will help if you falter.
Make the time
There could be a good few activities in your life which you would gladly give up – maybe even your present job? But you know how important your job is so no matter what, you show up. The same attitude could apply to working out.
The benefits you get by exercising such as strong muscles and bones, weight management, relief from stress, a healthy heart, high self esteem and lesser risk of contracting several debilitating diseases – all these benefits far outweigh any laziness or reluctance that prevent you from doing regular workouts. To help you overcome such lethargy you could always take the help of a personal trainer.
Other little tips that could help you to overcome any lethargy towards doing a workout could be:
- Going to bed at night wearing the clothes you will work out in. This could prove beneficial especially on a cold morning when you would have to get out of bed and get dressed for your workout.
- If you are a personal trainer at times you might not feel motivated enough to do your own workout on days when you do not conduct class. Other activities such as getting dinner, taking the dog for a walk, phone chatting or completing some outdoor errands might draw your attention away from working out. This can happen to anyone so one way to combat such distractions is to put on the workout clothes – this will automatically point you in the right direction.
Becoming one of the crowd
Though you may pride yourself on being individual in your style of living, many times you will find you are behaving and doing things similar to that of your family, acquaintances and co-workers. It becomes a game of follow the leader.
In a similar manner, this applies to your health and body also. If you have friends who are obese and indulge in the wrong food choices, you too could fall into that trap and emerge as a fat unhealthy person.
Obesity is a contagious condition, as any personal trainer will tell you, and easy to become comfortable with. In such a case try and mix with people who are health conscious and lead active and productive lives.
If you find it difficult to make the change, take the help of a personal trainer who will help you to decide on the type of workout you need, the right food you should eat, and how to become the healthy active person you should be. So get involved with people who have the right habits and values and are conscious of leading a healthy lifestyle.
