Having a fit body is not just about doing the right exercises and eating healthy. It’s also about feeling good physically and mentally, so here are some tips to help you along the way.

  1. Are you new to your fitness lifestyle? Here’s a great tip…don’t stretch; warm up! An active warmup gets your body ready for exercise by increasing your heart rate, firing up your nervous system and getting your muscles used to moving.
  2. Keep a record of the exercises you do, including the distance, time, reps and weight. You’ll be able to see your progress and you’ll be more driven to keep going.
  3. If you’re new to fitness, you may not be aware that you can reduce sore muscles with active recovery. Go for a walk, perform some foam rolling, or do a few simple rounds of calisthenics the day after a tough workout.
  4. Starting out on a fitness journey? Aim to workout at least three times a week, and remain active every day.
  5. Struggling to fit fitness into your routine? Find a time that works for you, so that you can stick to and do it consistently. There is no best time for everyone, but there is a best time for you.
  6. Not sure what weights to lift? Always life the heaviest weight that will allow you to complete not only all of your sets of a given exercise, but the entire workout.
  7. Strength training or cardio? Try to choose workout programs that combine both! That way you’ll see the most results.
  8. Don’t worry about monitoring your heart rate if you’re a beginner to fitness and exercise. Just go as hard as you can, recover, and repeat.
  9. Find a fitness program that works for you, or you will never stick to you. You need to be having fun and seeing results to have the motivation to keep going.
  10. Try to stay loose when working out. Beginners are particularly prone to tensing up. Relax the muscles you’re not working, and focus on the ones you are. You’ll have more energy and get better results.
