It is amazing that with the huge number of exercise machines and programs on the market today, personal health and fitness is at an all-time low. We are the fattest and least fit generation ever. The only thing more worrying than this, is that the next generation looks to be even worse off! We shouldn’t accept this. Everyone has both the time and resources to get into better shape. Here’s how to go about it.
Every year in January, gym attendance peaks as every man and his dog hits the treadmill for a week or two. And just a few short weeks later, not one in ten will still be exercising. No time, no money. The excuses are everywhere. And they really are nothing more than excuses. There are men and women out there working 60 or more hours a week in tough jobs who also have families, and yet they are in great shape. The time has come to stop making excuses.
what is particularly sad is the fact that so many people just don’t know what to do. They believe that if they don’t have access to the perfect program, then anything else is a waste of time. This couldn’t be farther from the truth. What about walking or running? This is free and will get anyone into shape. It also gets you away from the desk for half an hour and into the fresh air, which is certainly good news.
It is also very easy to incorporate resistance training into your lifestyle of personal health and fitness without needing to spend a cent. Bodyweight exercises can work wonders. Try lunges, bodyweight squats and push ups for starters. For a bit of variety, what about heading don to a local park and doing some dips and chins of the monkey bars.
Of course, without decent nutrition, this is a waste of time. But once again, this really isn’t that complicated. Surely everyone knows that eating a lot of fruit and veggies and drinking water and green tea is good news by now? Everyone would be a whole lot leaner already if they just cut as much processed food as possible out of their diets.
There really is no need to go on a starvation diet. Making small changes is plenty to get most people down to a level of body fat where they can tell that their abs are in their somewhere!
