I’ve got a magic pill for you! It’ll take care of those extra pounds, tighten up any flab, improve your health, make you look years younger and give you tons of energy! Sounds great right? You must be wondering what this new supplement, product or secret is and how you can get some. Well, the good news is that it’s very easy to get and is actually free! All it takes is a little planning, time and some direction and you’re all set.
Here it is… movement! After almost twenty years in the fitness industry, I can honestly tell you that there is nothing closer to a magic pill than exercise.
No supplement, no product, no “new information” will help you get in shape and stay healthier than simply getting into the habit of exercising regularly. So, start with the basics, which are good nutrition and consistent exercises! Work up to higher intensity levels and supplement with the right products to support your goals, but don’t rely on them.
Remember, when it comes to exercise something is better than nothing, and you have to start somewhere, so start where you are! To get where you want to go you have to work for it… everyday. You have got to move and you’ve got to find exercises or activities that you’re interested in and maybe even enjoy so you can stick with it!
- Lose excess weight which could be adding stress to your joints and internal organs
- Decrease your susceptibility to many illnesses and diseases
- Reduce your blood pressure and lower your cholesterol
- Reduce stress
- Regulate your hormones (very important for women over 30!)
- Maintain bone density
There are too many benefits to list.
If you don’t use it, you lose it! Keep in mind that as we age, we naturally lose muscle which ultimately slows down our metabolism too. We can build and maintain muscle though with resistance training.
So, just like brushing your teeth and getting dressed in the morning, daily exercise should become a habit. Never go two days without exercise to ensure it’s consistent and find a way to mix it up and challenge yourself every workout so you continue to see results and never get bored.
