It is that time of year – new resolutions to keep fit. Everyone knows that the fitness and wellness industry is megabucks, we are offered discount gym memberships, sports wear are displayed at the entrance of shops, etc.
Before you go out to buy, order gym outfits or book membership. Have you thought about the type of fitness really works, just because there are adverts everywhere and others are going to the gym, doesn’t necessarily mean you have to. There are other ways to keep fit; for example; power walking, swimming, dancing, skipping, running, cycling, handball. My preferred activity is working out to HITT videos on my favourite youtube channel. It is very gruelling but I enjoy it and the result.
All you have to do is go for what is not only suitable for you but an activity you actually enjoy. Exercising should be fun, if you are not enjoying an activity it means you need to move on to something more suitable. However, do bear in mind that any activity you choose should leave you out of breathe and help you lose weight. Some activities may take a bit longer than others but hang in there.
Advantages of keeping fit.
– can prevent heart disease
-improve the quality of your sleep.
-builds your confidence
-good for your mental health
-keeps your brain activity
Whatever, activity you decide to choose make sure you are consistent. Other ways of keeping fit are taking the chairs instead of the lift, getting off before your bus stop and walking to your destination.
In conclusion, make sure you have ‘rest’ days, as you don’t want to overdo it as it could result in injury or even illness.
