Tips for Keeping Fit

When I was competing, I had the best excuse to be in the gym all day every day. Still, it had to be fun for me. I had to have a Saturday activity that was fun, like in-line skating inside a huge gym where I could go really fast.

When it comes to health and fitness, your motivation should be a no-brainer; facts prove exercise and eating well can add longevity and quality of life. Your inspiration to eat healthy and to exercise could come from many different things-whether you want to fit into a pair of jeans or you have some real, substantial athletic goal. Your inspiration changes all the time.

Have Fun

The main thing is that exercise has to be fun. It shouldn't feel like punishment. If you have a long to-do list with an exercise routine at the end of the day and you don't get to it, you shouldn't beat yourself up. Just move ahead and look forward to your next workout. If you're procrastinating about working out, then whatever you're doing isn't working for you. You need to check into something different.

Be Brave

Mix it up. Your body loves changes. Muscle memory is quick. Once you've done the same thing a few times, change up your routine, do something crazy. Take a class in jazz boxing or some dance from a foreign country. Whether it's running five miles or getting together with a group of people to walk your dogs, it's a matter of doing something that works for you.

What Works for You

Exercise is a way for you to find out about yourself-who you are, what your makeup is, what works for you. Do you need intense power workouts? Or does stretching and breathing work better for you? Do you work out by yourself or with others? The bottom line is what makes you feel good about you. Build your exercise program around that, and you'll have your best chance for success. It doesn't take much time for your body to respond.
