Those who don’t exercise will have to find time for illness. That is a great motto for those who use the excuse that they have no time to exercise.
Everybody needs to exercise and there is some form of exercise available for everybody whether you are disabled, elderly or just starting out to exercise for the first time.
You need to find an exercise you enjoy and then to make sure you do it at least 3 times a week.
You might think you don’t have the time for that but 30 mins is all that is asked for. Most people will spend longer on the internet, reading a newspaper or watching television than they need to spend doing exercising. 30 mins a day could literally save your life.
One of the best forms of exercise is walking yet it is one that is often forgotten about. People will spend hours walking around the shops or mall but when they come to do some walking for exercise then they will find plenty of excuses why they can’t do it.
Make a choice to walk for 30 minutes three times a week and you will soon see the benefit to your health. Start by stretching and warming up those muscles before you set off. Then take a short walk keeping a steady pace, and when you have finished the walk stretch again to cool down the muscles.
The last thing you want is to damage any muscles or cause yourself any injury. Take care when you exercise. Make good choices and that way you can enjoy your exercises and get fit.
If you decide to join a gym or a club to get your exercise then make sure you are not wasting your money. If you pay a year’s subscription for the local pool and you only use it once then it is a very expensive swim.
If you are considering a yearly membership then make sure you use that membership. But do remember that a membership to a club or gym won’t make you fit, even going there won’t make you fit. If all you are doing is making it a social event to talk to people then again it is a waste of money.
Once you are there you need to take the time to use the equipment and not just five minutes and then quit because it hurts or you are bored.
The secret to getting fit is consistent exercising. That means at least 30 mins three times a week. It means times to warm up the muscles then to get some cardio exercise and then time to cool down the muscles.
Keep those muscles safe and you can enjoy a new and fit lifestyle as you start to exercise even if you have never exercised before.
