Do You Feel Like You Have No Time or Energy for Exercising?

Do you feel like you have no time or energy for exercising? That’s how many people feel who think that it takes hours in the gym to achieve true fitness. They’re wrong. You don’t have to “live” in the gym to get all the benefits of a workout. In fact, 30 minutes each session that’s the right type of exercise done correctly, is as effective as an hour in the gym.

Too much time exercising can actually cause weight gain!

Studies show if you exercise over two and a half hours straight, you potentially cause stress to your body. Stress causes your body to produce hormones, such as cortisol, which are linked to the accumulation of abdominal—belly—fat. That’s one reason to spread your workout over several days, doing approximately a half hour each time, three times a week, which gives your muscle fibers a chance to heal and allows you to replenish nutrients. It also lets you live your life with your loved ones, not changed to the gym and prevents both burnout and boredom.

You need to find a personal trainer who will work with your schedule.

While you can workout less and maximize the benefits, you also need someone who has the knowledge and experience to help you achieve your goals and show you the best method of getting the most from your workout. Personal trainers work with your schedule rather than you being forced to accommodate theirs. That allows you to utilize your time better so that exercising several times a week is possible and far easier.

Your personal trainer should utilize workouts that boosts your metabolism.

The more fit you become, the easier it is to burn even more calories. That’s because exercise creates more muscle tissue and burns off fat tissue. Muscle tissue requires more calories than fat tissue does. 24/7 you’ll be burning more even when you’re not exercising and that will show in more rapid weight loss that stays off permanently.

Get creative. If you want to spend more time with your family or friends, but still want to lose weight, make working out a family affair or a small group get together. Many trainers allow you to do semi-private or group sessions, which can be the perfect couple’s night out.

Some exercises not only burn calories while you’re in the gym, they create a metabolic “afterburn” which continues to burn calories long after the session ended.

Losing weight isn’t all about exercising. Much of it is about the type of food you eat. You need to combine a healthy diet with the workout. A personal trainer can help you create a personalized menu.

Shorter workouts that are geared to maximize the benefits show quicker results and more success. Success is a powerful driving force to keep you on the path to a thinner healthier you.

5 Obstacles to Fitness Success

5 Obstacles to Fitness Success

images-4You want to be fit. You know how much you should weigh. You know your ideal pant size. You can even picture how great those skinny jeans will look.

So why aren’t you living life in your ideal body?

There are many complex reasons that make weight loss a challenge, reasons that go deeper than simply calories-in versus calories-out.

I’m talking about the life issues that get in the way of your success.

Read the following 5 obstacles and the solutions to unlock your best body ever.

1. You don’t want to be bothered.

It’s in your DNA to avoid pain and seek out pleasure. Unfortunately this works against you when trying to get fit. In your mind, it’s painful (or at least uncomfortable) to deny yourself the tasty food that you crave and to exert yourself with exercise.

There’s a simple way to work around this obstacle: Find something painful about being fat to motivate yourself towards healthy eating and exercise. Focus on the negative impact your current weight has on your health, self-esteem and lifestyle. Convince yourself that the pain of being out of shape is much greater than the discomfort of losing weight.

2. You don’t want to wait for the good stuff.

Just as you wish to avoid pain, you are also an expert in seeking out pleasure – namely food. This served the cavemen well, but these days it ends up as extra pounds around your waist and thighs.

There’s good news: extra calories are not your only option to stimulate the pleasure center of your brain. Find an activity or two that make you smile and indulge in those regularly.

A walk outside
A good book
A night out to the movies or theater
A spa day
You can also retrain your brain to crave the pleasure of exercise-induced endorphins. Talk about weight gain kryptonite!

3. You are crazy busy.

Let’s face it, you work too much, commit yourself to too much and don’t even get enough sleep most of the time. The fast-paced way you live leaves you exhausted, stressed and hungry for comfort food. You even begin to feel too busy to take care of your health.

It’s time to reprioritize. Let go of your perfectionist standards and remove a few commitments from your schedule so that you are able to cook healthy meals, exercise and get a good night’s sleep. Remind yourself that taking care of your health is not a luxury – it’s a necessity.

4. You don’t deserve it.

I don’t agree with it, but you sure act like you don’t deserve to live the good life in the body of your dreams. Take a moment to think back on all the times you have self-sabotaged your weight loss efforts. If you don’t believe deep down that you are worthy then you’ll never give yourself a chance at a fit body.

I believe that you deserve to have a healthy body – and I urge you to dig deep down to uncover why you don’t. Once you conquer your feelings of unworthiness, getting on an exercise and healthy eating plan will be easy.

Take the time to take care of yourself. You DO deserve it.

5. You are afraid.

You’re afraid to start because you just might fail, and wouldn’t that be embarrassing? You’re also afraid to start because you just might succeed, and change makes you uncomfortable โ€“ even if it’s change in the right direction.

When you decide to get fit you will need to go through a bushel of changes:

New diet
New exercise routine
New friends at the gym
New clothes
New self-image
Focus on all of the ways that losing weight will make your life better. Envision that better life everyday so that it goes from being new and scary to familiar and comfortable.
