Easy Workout Tips!

Trying to shed a few pounds? Feeling sweaty, breathless and exhausted after working out isn’t the most motivating end result.

But a few mindset and activity tweaks will make your exercise and weight-management plan suddenly seem a lot more enjoyable!

1. Find A Workout Buddy

Instead of doing it alone, ask friends or family members who’d like to get fit or shed a few pounds to join you at the gym.

You can also keep each other accountable and motivated, and it’s a great way to strengthen your bond too.

2. Happiness Comes First

Studies have shown that if you enjoy working out, it’s easier to persevere and lose more weight.

Pick a workout routine that you enjoy doing, or give sports that you’ve never done before a go!

3. Start With Baby Steps

You might think that exercising vigorously can help you lose weight faster, but not only does that increase the chance of injury, it also makes you feel really tired, which might make you feel like giving up easily.

The best approach is to ease into a fitness regimen with walks and cycling, then go for more cardio-intensive activities as your body acclimatizes to your workout routine.

4. Music Helps Too
Working out with music that you like or uplifting beats can help your body release more endorphins and achieve better results.

5. Don’t Get Fooled By Your Weight

You feel that all the exercise has paid off and you’ve slimmed down, but the weighing scale says you’ve not lost weight – why?

Remember that muscle is heavier than fat, so if you’ve been working out, you’ve probably burned off some fat stores.

More good news: lean muscle tissue burns more calories than fat, even when resting – meaning your metabolism is higher!
