1. BE CONSISTENT

The key to staying fit is being active consistently. If you are consistently moving and staying active, you will consistently reap the benefits of a fit body. There are easy ways to add in extra MOVEMENT into your daily life.  Take the stairs, park farther away in parking lots,, walk the dog and extra lap, do a set of jumping jacks in between emails or calls. Even just a little bit makes a huge difference.

2. MAKE IT FUN

Workouts don’t have to be about running 5Ks. Do what makes you happy!  Dance, get involved in a sport or do yoga.  Try something new like rock climbing, and paddle boarding. Be adventurous and HAVE FUN!

3. MAKE IT CHALLENGING, BUT ATTAINABLE

Take yourself out of your comfort zone and see the changes in your mind and body. Doing the same exercise day in and day out will not be challenging nor will it change your body or fitness level. Take it up a notch or even try something new. Make your workouts harder but make sure you to do it safely and effectively. SET GOALS.

4. VARY LENGTH AND INTENSITY OF WORKOUTS

Again running 30 minutes straight or doing the same loop around the neighborhood with a set of crunches will not get you super fit. Shock your body and confuse it. Change up your workout. Variety is the spice of life, and it will give your body the flavor it craves.  Don’t get bored and really challenge your muscles and body.

5. INCORPORATE DAYS OFF

You can move everyday of your life but make sure you don’t train hard every day without a recovery day. Taking a day off to let your body recover will in turn give you more energy and strength towards your future workouts and fitness goals. There’s a time for work and a time for rest. The body needs time to heal and rebuild tissue. Without proper rest, you can over train and actually lose fitness goals. Balance is key!

6. WORK OUT WITH OTHERS

Power is always in numbers. Find workout buddies and try meet up groups that are centered on fitness to keep you accountable.  The more you surround yourself with support, the more likely you are to keep it up.

7. INTERVAL TRAINING

You can burn more fat and calories in less time with interval training.  It's less wear and tear on joints and boosts metabolism significantly. You can do more in less time with more strength gains.  Traditional cardio and weight training are boring and not as effective. Try this and see the difference in how your body looks and feels.

8. FLEXIBILITY

“What doesn’t bend... usually breaks”. How true is this statement? The body was designed to move in every direction.  Add a flexibility component to your workout regimen. Make sure you always have good range of motion through your entire body. It's so important to stretch because the body needs to move in balanced integrated system. Tight muscles hinder movement and can create instabilities leading to weakened muscle groups and possibly pain and injury. In addition to full body stretching, yoga is a great way to keep flexibility in the body and mind in check.

9. THERAPEUTICS

Use foam rollers and tennis balls to release tight muscles and tissue. Along with massage and trigger point therapy, foam rollers and tennis balls can help you administer self-therapy at home. It's important to release tight tissues for balanced strength and support and be pain free.  In addition to feeling good, consider therapeutics as an integral tool for body maintenance to keep muscles and tissues free, balanced, and healthy.
