7 Tips for Fitness Women


 7 Tips for Fitness Women

There are millions of fitness women in the United States today. They include those that are just getting going, and those that have been working out for many years. Making exercising a part of your routine may seem like something you should do, but it is easier said than done. It's important to remember that exercise does not have to be difficult or uncomfortable; there are ways to make it enjoyable and motivating!

Although there is no one-size-fits-all approach, some general ideas can help anyone get started. Here are some effective ways to get more exercise in your life:

1. Pick the right workout. There is no one way to work out. Some people find that working out with others helps them accomplish more and stay motivated. If you hate exercising on your own, consider joining a class! You can meet workout buddies this way, too. Plus, it's more fun having other people around while you work out and gives you something to do if you get bored easily, especially when exercising at home on your own. Types of workouts include: aerobics, swimming, cycling, running and gym workouts, such as lifting weights or using machines like stair climbers or ellipticals. You may find that one type of exercise is best for you, and that you are more motivated to exercise when you use that type of workout. For example, if you have a limited amount of time in the day or do not have access to equipment or other people at home, then aerobics may be the right choice for you.

2. Use your natural capabilities. When I was first getting started with my formal fitness training, I was surprised at how much shorter a gym workout felt than an outdoor walk or run. At first it seemed impossible that a 45 minute workout could last as long as 30 minutes of pushing myself out on a trail alone. Fortunately, I did not have to start from scratch. Using your natural abilities and strengths is actually the best way to get exercise. You may find that working out at home with little equipment can be as effective as going to a gym.

3. Create a workout plan. Adopt a workout routine that appeals to you, and that you can stick with for at least three months or longer. If you are new to exercise, it's best not to get too complex or committed; start with one or two exercises that you can do easily and quickly, such as push-ups, sit-ups, squats, walk-outs or planks.

4. Don't be afraid to exercise in a public place, such as at the gym or on a walk. Many people are intimidated by exercise in public; it can be very intimidating to try something new. But there are many ways to achieve your goals without being faced with intimidating crowds or getting your clothes all sweaty. You can buy workout clothing that is designed for comfort and low-impact exercise, such as nylon or yoga wear. You can find public gyms and even hotel gyms that provide access to equipment for low-impact exercises such as walking, running, cycling and rowing machines, treadmills, stair climbers and elliptical trainers. You can go to a gym or walk outside at your local park. If you work out at home, you can usually do your exercises in the comfort of your own home without being confronted by other people. There are also many websites with routine videos for different kinds of exercise that you can do at home with no equipment just by doing aerobics, water aerobics or weight lifting.

5. Make exercise a daily habit. It may take some time to get used to regular exercise; while it's good to start with one or two exercises, it's also important not to overdo it and become too intimidated in the process of trying new things. If you feel that you are not doing enough, try a little bit more. But remember, just a little bit more every day will eventually add up to lots of physical activity.

6. Remember why you exercise – For example, if you want to lose weight, then try some type of aerobic exercise that burns calories and thus fat. Applying this mentality to your workout is motivational; it makes working out more fun and exciting because you know it will help in other ways in the future.

7. Enlist the help of someone else who exercises regularly with you. Having a weight-loss buddy is a great way to stay motivated and on track. You can ask this person to be your workout buddy or help in other ways, such as by providing you with fitness clothes or equipment, and helping you think of excuses not to miss workouts.

Fitness for women is not difficult. There are lots of easy and fun exercises that are interesting, effective and fun to do. If you are having trouble getting exercise, just remember that it is important to pick something that sounds appealing and fun so it will be easier for you to stick with it in the long run!
