At least once in a year, people make resolutions to stick to a fitness program. However, if you are among these people, but have found it hard to follow through, don’t feel bad. You’re in good company. You have many reasons to renew your commitment and stick with it.

We all have our reasons for not sticking to our fitness resolutions. The most important point is that, if you are concerned about getting fit, then understand that there’s never a time that’s too late to start a fitness regimen. The fact is, it takes less time to fit in a day’s work out than it takes to read through your Facebook feed.

Do you know that you can even do your workout while watching TV? If you adopt the recommendations of American Council on Exercise (ACE) & the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), then I bet you that 150 minutes of workout per week will be all that you’ll need to boost your cardiovascular health and minimize your risk of other ailments. When you fit these minutes and how you fit them into your daily routine is all up to you.

So, use the tips below to add exercise to your routine, and START TODAY!

Set a SMART target or goal for yourself

According to the American Council on Exercise, a SMART target or goal is one that’s:

  • Measurable
  • Specific
  • Attainable
  • Time-specific (has a deadline and can be achieved in a certain amount of time)
  • Relevant

When you set goals for yourself, you will be focused on what you hope to accomplish. There’s nothing as satisfying as meeting your goals, and according to fitness enthusiasts, it helps to push your momentum.

Unrealistic goals are a recipe for failure. Instead of giving yourself a target of 30 minutes of exercise daily when you know that you can’t do even 15, why not run through your schedule and pick out two days when you can boost your time at the gym to 30 minutes? At the end of the day, you still get your 150 minutes per week target.

Commit yourself to walk more each day

For a decade or more, CDC public health experts have urged US citizens to walk at least 5 miles per day. People who walk daily are thought to be more active. If you can take up to 12,500 steps daily, then you are considered to be “highly active.” 

Even if you’re not concerned about losing weight, you should try to walk more each day to maintain your good health.

Fitness should be a lifestyle; it shouldn’t be a fad

The mistake many people make is that they work hard to achieve their fitness goals, but then relax once they’ve achieved it. To them, fitness is a means to an end, and not a lifestyle. Of course, this causes weight gain and other health problems. If you don’t consider fitness as a lifestyle, then you may not reap the benefits of long-term exercise.

It is a fact that exercise can help with weight maintenance or weight loss in the short-term. However, you’ll enjoy lasting benefits with an active lifestyle. It reduces the risk of health complications such as:

  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Obesity
  • Heart disease

Exercise plays a vital role in the improvement of health and general well-being, so it is never too late to make it a priority.

    Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme you’re using?
    (and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme
    slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback) –
    it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!

  2. March 24, 2020

    I don’t typically comment on posts, but as a long time reader I thought I’d drop in and
    wish you all the best during these troubling times.

    From all of us at Royal CBD, I hope you stay well with the COVID19 pandemic
    progressing at an alarming rate.
