Secrets to Enjoying Exercise

Secrets to Enjoying Exercise

If you are like most folks, the mere thought of exercising is enough to have your mind make up all sorts of excuses why you should not, could not, and potentially will not exercise. However, there are some secrets and tips to really begin to enjoy exercise to its fullest.

Grab a Buddy

Often times we can view exercise regimens as solitary confinement – like a sentence we have to endure all on our own. Guaranteed you have a pal or co-worker who feels exactly the same way. The old adage that misery loves company would apply in this situation. However, once you get together with a friend to exercise and actually go to the gym or take that power walk or a Group class, you will begin to see how much fun it really is and begin to enjoy exercising.

Change your View of Exercising

Only you have the ability to change how you perceive something. Only when you have associated positive thoughts and feelings with exercise will you begin to override the negative connotations with exercising. You will find that excuses such as being tired or not having enough time will be outweighed by feelings of accomplishment such as recognition that you burned 500 calories that night or even the simple fact that you feel energized and were glad you went.

FunFocus on the positive results and feelings you get the first time you go to exercise and bring that feeling back up to the forefront of your mind the next time you are heading out to exercise.

Be Creative

Be creative with your exercise routines and regimens. You do not have to think about gigantic machinery that you are unfamiliar with or a gym full of strangers. Find something you love to do and incorporate that into exercise. For some, that is walking briskly and for others it is dancing your heart out. Dance is not only a creative outlet, it is also one that will burn hundreds of calories. Even if you are not a professional dancer, taking a swing class or a jazz class is only the beginning to discovering one of the secrets to enjoying exercise.

Make a Date with Exercising

If you leave exercising to a chance date or time, you will more than likely set yourself up for failure. Make a specific date and time for exercise, whether you go out to the gym or do it at home. Write in on your calendar, put it on your to do list and commit to it. After you are done, you will be glad you did.

Four Fun Ways to Burn More Calories

Four Fun Ways to Burn More Calories

The truth of the matter is that everything we do, from walking up and down the stairs to house cleaning, burns calories. While we can think of many different ways to burn more calories, the fact remains that burning more calories than we consume is the key to weight loss. Most of us associate burning those calories with painful and dreaded methods in doing so. That does not mean, however, that we cannot have fun while burning those calories. Here then are four fun ways to burn more calories.

Sleep It Off

Although you may find it difficult to shut your mind off at night, did you know that getting a solid eight hours of sleep every night can burn well over 350 calories a night.  KINETIX PERSONAL TRAINING - EL PASO TX

It pays to get into a sleep-inducing routine every evening. By setting yourself up for a good night’s sleep about an hour or two before settling in, not only do you get a healthy body, mind, and spirit, you also have the opportunity to burn calories without moving a muscle. Now, that is a win-win situation.

Skip the Car Wash

Instead of running the car through the car wash, gather your family around and make it a family affair. Not only will you save money by washing the car yourself, you will also burn calories and spend time with your family.  pups

Washing your car can be fun, especially at the end when everyone gets the opportunity to wet each other with the hose – and you have the possibility of burning more than 100 calories.

Grow a Garden

Even if you do not have a green thumb, the benefits of growing a garden are numerous. You will have the benefit of trying something new and no matter how big or small, you’re sure to achieve success.  veggies

Gardening gives you the bonus of seeing something through from beginning to end. Whether you grow flowers or vegetables you get to see the birth of something new and gardening has the potential to help you burn up to 300 calories per hour. It also clarifies the mind.

Power Walking

If you enjoy going for a leisurely stroll, why not take it up a notch. Power walking is not only fun but also can be a great excuse to meet up with neighbors. Reach out to someone who is likely to be interested in walking but is at the same level as you. So if you are a beginner walker, do not get together with someone who is an avid runner or power walker.  race-walk-580

Begin with a beginner. As you go along, you will see that you are able to navigate hills and walk for longer time periods. It is great for the mind, body, soul, and for burning calories while having a fun conversation with your neighbor.

So basically when it comes to physical activity always take the long route!

Cant Lose Weight ? – Plans For The New Year

This time of year many of us start turning our thoughts to the year that is almost over and the upcoming year. We often think about the things we haven’t gotten done yet. If this sounds like you, you may be wondering why you can t lose weight. The good news is that you probably can, more than likely you are just going about it in the wrong way. The truth is that most people who can t lose weight just don’t go about it in the right way.

It’s just not that likely that you would have hereditary factors that keep you from losing the weight. It’s really pretty simple to lose weight, but to be on the safe side, talk to your doctor first. It’s a good idea to make sure that your doctor knows about your weight loss plans, especially any exercise plans that you have, so she can advise you on the best course of action. KINETIX PERSONAL TRAINING EL PASO TX

If you are not in good shape you need to start slowly. Also, if you have any existing conditions you will need to modify your workout to accommodate those things. You can lose the weight, no matter what obstacles you may face, but you do have to take any restrictions into account when you start. Another fact that you may not like to hear, is that many of us lie to ourselves about our weight loss efforts. It’s very easy to think you are doing more than you really are when it comes to what you eat and how much exercise you get. The best way to make sure you aren’t guilty of this is to start keeping a journal.

Chronicle everything you eat as well as all the exercise you get on a daily basis. If you do this diligently you may just be surprised at what you eat or that you don’t really get as much exercise as you thought you did. I did this very thing for a few weeks and I was amazed at how much I ate that I didn’t realize. It’s so easy to eat something here or there and not really realize it. It can be a real eye opener when you see it all written down in black and white. It may make you feel bad, but in the long run, it is a great way to accomplish what you hope to accomplish.  question

It doesn’t have to be anything fancy, just a spiral notebook is all you need. I had a little miniature one that I kept in my purse so that I wouldn’t forget anything during the day. After a few weeks not only will you see whether or not you are as “good” as you think you are you can also find out if you have any triggers. If you notice that you tend to eat comfort food at certain times of the day, for example, you may be able to alter that behavior.

Much of what we do is on autopilot. To get the most out of all your diet and exercise plans you need to be able to target your trouble spots and make changes. Keeping a journal is the easiest way to do just that.
So, don’t  think that you can’t lose weight,  now that you know what to focus on you may just find that it isn’t as hard as you thought.

HOW TO BOOST YOUR METABOLISM AFTER 40!

How to Boost Your Metabolism after 40

One of the main purposes of metabolism is to store and use energy. After 40 years on the planet, who could not derive benefits from storing and using energy more? As we enter the years after our 40th birthday, it stands to reason that our metabolism will slow down. We are not as active as we used to be and we may not be taking in the proper amount of nutrients.

40-12

When we were younger, we had our mothers to reinforce that we ate all of our broccoli or no dessert. After 40, we have no one to regulate us but ourselves. That is why we need to do all we can to ensure that we boost our metabolism after 40.

Be Picky and Proud of It

At this point, you need to be as discerning as possible as to what you allow to enter your digestive system. Picking and choosing the foods that you eat will determine how quickly or slowly your metabolism will work. Keep away from the carbs. Yes, that is correct, keep your carbohydrate intake to a minimum. And when you do have carbs, have the right ones. The right combination of fruits and vegetables that contain carbohydrates will make or break your metabolism.

Add – Do Not Just Subtract

It is important to take away white flour, sugar, too many carbohydrates and sweets from your diet. Moreover, while you are deleting negative sources from your diet that will slow down your metabolism, you need to consider adding other things to your diet. Things such as green tea, extra water, or even apple cider vinegar can play a role in increasing your metabolism. Do not be afraid to try a new fruit or vegetable. If you are reaching for chips and dip, think about red pepper strips and hummus. You never know what will work for you unless you try adding it into your diet.

Exercise

If your normal form of exercise is Yoga, try a power form of Yoga like Yogalates. If you take a leisurely stroll, consider taking a different path such as a more hilly road or even begin to power walk in between your causal walking. Begin to incorporate weights into your exercise routine. The extra pressure on your muscles will increase your metabolism as those muscles now have to work a little harder. In addition, you may want to take a dance class that has a bit more rhythm to it or take a beginners aerobics class to get that metabolism jump-started.

By changing your dietary habits and deleting some negative items, as well as adding some beneficial food sources and incorporating different types of exercise routines, you will see the beginnings of a whole new you and a whole new metabolism.

Great Question!

“HOW QUICKLY SHOULD I EXPECT TO SEE RESULTS?”

Feeling Impatient? This is a more common question often asked by new clients. Seeing results can take time, so it’s a good question to ask me, your trainer. “Many people come into the trainer-client relationship with several misconceptions of the effort and time required to reach their desired outcome. Most people think magic happens only in the gym. Quite the contrary. Change happens when you’re in fact not in the gym.

questionIssues that determine your body’s response can include: How far away are you from your goal? Are you currently training? How are your eating habits? How much weight do you want to lose? Are there stability, rehabilitative or other issues that need to be addressed with training before you can transition into the next training phase? Only after answering these questions and more can I as your trainer set realistic time goals for you.
