Tips and Tricks

  1. Set Realistic Goals and Be Consistent

Don’t fight for perfection or an improbable goal that can’t be met but set realistic goals and focus on increasing healthy behaviors. It means that you shouldn’t be upset if you can`t run 5 km for an hour. Walk instead under just 20 minutes every day, make it a habit and add time and speed each time when you are walking.

  1. Record Your Progress

For being more motivated you can create a workout record card: write down the results after each training and you will see how to improve your body and health.  Record the following subjects: muscle conditioning, cardio, flexibility, and attitude.  You will continue to do workout and stay in shape if your results are really visible.

  1. Work Out During Your Workday

Sit on a stability ball to strengthen your core, and keep dumbbells or exercise tubing at your desk. Squeeze in 12 to 15 reps of exercises like dumbbell curls, overhead presses, and ab crunches; aim for two or three sets of each. This gives you more free time to fit in fun workouts like biking or tennis.

  1. Give Yourself a Break

“You don’t have to be a fitness saint to get results. Follow the 80/20 plan: Eighty percent of the year, you’ll exercise regularly and eat well. Know that you’ll slip 20 percent of the time due to holidays and work deadlines. When you accept that fitness isn’t an all-or-nothing proposition, you’re more likely to stick with it for life.

  1. Workout with Your Buddy

Find a buddy or acquaintance whom you trust and who also wants to have a healthier lifestyle. Inspire them and you will believe not just in your success but in the results of your partner. Exercise together. Use this as an opportunity to enjoy time together, enjoy someone’s company and to strengthen the relationships.

  1. Make Your Plan Fit Your Life

We know a thing or two about how to stay busy, work hard and still have time to do sports.

Make your workout fit your life, you don’t always need gears and gyms to stay in shape. For example, if you’ve got floor space, try simple floor exercises to target areas such as the hips and buttocks, legs and thighs, and chest and arms (like push-ups, squats, and lunges). Be creative in your healthy lifestyle even at work!
