Before we go any further let me just say that fitness is not about having a six pack, it is not about being able to do 100 burpees, it is simply about moving our bodies, so that is why we can all be fit no matter what our ability.
We can make a start on our journey to being fit and healthy by taking control of our physical and mental health, by doing this we can:
Our bodies are just like diamonds, coming in all shapes and sizes, we need to remember that we are all unique and we need to learn to love our own body, cherish it and look after it by giving it the best gift of all, fitness.
As a trainer I often get asked “what is the best exercises to do?” and my answer is “the one you enjoy the most.” I say this because as a trainer I know that if you enjoy the exercise that you do then you are more likely to continue to do it. There is nothing more demotivating than having to try and get fitter by doing exercises which you hate. Remember, exercise can be anything from dancing around your front room to your favourite tune (mine is always Abba’s Dancing Queen), doing a quick home workout or simply walking around the block!
The key is to simply move more as by doing so:
When we exercise, we give our body an energy boost. It’s a bit like if your phone is running on low battery – you then put it on charge and as a result the battery quickly goes back up to full. Well this is just the same with exercise, every time you move you recharge your energy levels.
