Motivation & Fitness

Many individuals and families have resolved to get fit and stay fit more than once. Some start an exercise program and give up before reaching their goals, while others attain their milestones then quit. The excuses not to exercise run the gamut, from lack of time to lack of energy and from boredom to indifference.

Meanwhile, every day the media reports another story or statistic about America’s increased incidence of heart disease, high blood pressure, insomnia, obesity, diabetes related to weight, health problems from stress, etc.

So what’s the solution? How can you replace your short-term excuses with a long-term commitment to better health?

Make it fun - Find out what form of exercise interests you and start with that. As long as you’re moving and motivated, it initially doesn’t matter whether you’re taking an aerobics class or riding a stationary bike. Add some music, turn on the TV, or better yet invite a friend. Do what it takes to transform your exercise routine from obligation to recreation.

Pace yourself – First and foremost, be realistic. If you haven’t exercised in a while, be patient and slowly increase your workout time, repetitions and weights. It took a while to get out of shape, so don’t expect to correct it overnight.

Schedule your workouts – Determine your best time for exercise and then write it on your calendar as a personal commitment. Try mornings whenever possible. An early workout not only gives your day a positive start; it removes the tendency to cancel as a busy day unfolds.

Keep a log or journal – Write down your initial routine and record exercise activities thereafter. Be sure to note your personal accomplishments and milestones, be it weight lost or inches dropped. Some health clubs and gyms provide a log for this purpose, since proven progress provides motivation.

Educate your self – Keep up-to-date on health trends, medical breakthroughs, fitness research and nutritional tips. Some clubs host educational classes and guest speakers, so ask about scheduled events.

Avoid boredom – If you sense the onset of boredom, change your routine. Check out new offerings, explore a group fitness program, move outdoors or talk with fitness professional for other ideas.

Get regular medical exams – Not only do you need a physical before you start a new exercise routine; commit to return for annual check-ups. Do it for yourself and for your family.

Reward yourself – When you start seeing and feeling results, be your own cheerleader. Pamper yourself with a spa treatment, buy a new outfit or simply share your success with family and friends.

Exercise regularly to get fit and stay fit ─ you’ll always be glad you did!
