Sometimes getting to the gym and getting a workout in seems like a daunting task. We all have busy lives and are trying to prepare for the next big thing. Being a gym rat isn’t always necessary to get in shape. My biggest philosophy with health and wellness is that little steps make biggest impacts. SO instead of trying to make yourself get to the gym multiple times a week for hours on end, try some of my little tips.
First off, TAKE THE STAIRS! Taking the stairs isn’t going to change your life, but it will burn 5x the amount of calories that taking the elevator does. Again, like I mentioned before, small steps, make big changes.
Secondly, try adding a 10 minute workout to your daily routine. Mix about 3-4 different simple moves together to get a nice little workout to get your rear in gear (get it?). Simple moves can consist of squats, crunches, jumping jacks, wall push ups, or planks. Anything that gets you moving without using too much equipment. Adding in this 10 minute workout 3-4 times a week will help you burn extra calories all week long. Losing weight is a basic science of calories in versus calories out.
Just remember food should be consumed in moderation (especially the bad stuff). By adding in small changes in your life you will burn more and more calories which helps add in losing weight! If you have the time get out there and get your workouts in, but time should never be an excuse to help you get more fit. Remember your body is your own, and if you don’t take care of it, where will you live?!
