Many of us are guilty of it every New Year's Eve, making resolutions about our health and fitness that we are destined to fail. However, it doesn’t need to be this way.
Following just a few simple steps can help to ensure that your fitness is on the right track for the whole of 2022. This will not only help your physical health in terms of weight, but it will enable you to look after your internal health and mental health.
Health experts always say it and this time they are right! Eating a variety of fruits, vegetables and lean meats can help to ensure that you are less bloated and full of energy in readiness for your workout. Make sure that you cut down the amount of salt, sugar and saturated fats in your diet, as this will help to prevent heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
This is even more important when you are working out, replenishing what your body loses through sweat. It will prevent you from becoming dehydrated and will keep your body at a normal temperature. Drinking plenty of water will help your body to flush out any toxins, keeping your kidneys clear and your body healthy.
Not everyone has time for the gym or the motivation to go. This is where changing your daily routine can have a large impact, such as taking the stairs and not the lift, or getting off the bus a few stops early in order to walk the rest of the way. Plan a walk for your lunch break, rather than staying at your desk, or perhaps take up cycling to work.
Working out at home can be a great way of increasing your fitness and stamina. An exercise bike will fit easily into most rooms, offering a comfortable and challenging workout. It gives you the option of catching up on your TV shows or reading at the same time as exercising, all from the comfort of your own home.
Why run outdoors in the rain and cold, when you can train in the warmth and comfort of your home? A highly effective workout, a treadmill is an investment that will repay you through increased fitness and stamina. A folding treadmill is perfect for homes that have less space, creating a compact and sleek workout space that you will love to spend time in.
