Exercising Guide & Tips

trainers for fitness

Exercising can be tough. So how can you exercise the best way possible without having to resort to a gym membership or running on a cold and wet evening. Simple and practical ways for people of all ages to keep fit and active.

A matter of routine, if you combine a need to exercise with a desire for staying fit, toning your muscles or even losing weight, the following you can ensure you build a little more exercise into your daily routine with the minimum amount of fuss and disruption:

  • Cut down the amount of time you spend watching television
  • Get out of your chair whenever you can at home and at work
  • Stand up while on the telephone and hide the remote controls for the TV and hi-fi
  • Seek out the opportunity to be active during your day. Use the upstairs bathroom, park at the edge of the carpark, walk to the local post-box/newsagent etc
  • Use household chores as an exercise class. Turn up the music and tackle them with vigour
  • Plan a 20 to 30 minute period of specific activity on most days of the week: for example, walking, swimming or gardening
  • Encourage the whole family to be active by making it part of your social activities. Take a trip to the park instead of the cinema, or go dancing with friends rather than spending a night in the pub
  • Take part in a sporting activity. Consider resuming a sport you enjoyed at school, learn how to play a sport you enjoy watching or join a local club

Need Motivation to Manage Your Weight?

Managing your weight is difficult and at times you may feel frustrated and disheartened, but there are ways to cope. It helps if your friends and family support and encourage you. Or you might find that attending a commercial weight-loss group helps to maintain your motivation. Your local GP surgery may also hold a weight-management group.

How to Keep on Track for Fitness

As well as leading a more active life, the following may help to make sure you keep the weight off :

  • Keep a record of your eating and exercise habits to check that you're not slipping back into the old habits
  • Record improvements in your health as a reminder of the benefits of being a healthy weight
  • Don't let a minor lapse from your eating or exercise plan turn into a major one
  • Be positive - you can control your weight

In Summary

Keeping fit will require a little bit of get up and go - but once you have started it - easy ways to keep yourself motivated can be found and don't forget that a fitness partner is a very very motivating option that rarely lets you down.

Using fitness to help your weight is a great way to keep those excess pounds off and to improve your toning. Just remember that you also need to reduce those portions and keep the sugar intake to a minimum for easy success.
