When people hear the words “You should workout”, they get all scared and stressed over the fact that they don’t A) have the time or B) Don’t have the energy.
However, research has been proven time and time again that 30-60 minutes every day is all you need to stay “fit”. This averages out to 45 minutes. Forty-five minutes is all it takes to stay healthy. That’s less than One hour-long TV show! Heck some workouts can even be done while watching TV!! Like yoga or Pilates.
For me the easiest way to get my “45 Minutes” in is to attend the Exercise classes, my favorite is Zumba (read Why on previous post). I also like to mix it up though, even though I adore my Zumba workout, I can get bored if I Zumba every day. My Weekly routine Usually goes as follows (sometimes It changes, depending on how I feel or my schedule)
Monday – —> Zumba
Tuesday —> Pilates
Wednesday —> Zumba (favorite class on Wed)
Thursday —> Body Works/Weight Training
Friday —> Yoga
Saturday —> Break day
Sunday —> outside activity like hiking or walk in the park with my loved one 🙂
Picking a schedule will help you stay on track to your fitness routine. When you have a schedule, you are more likely to not skip that workout. Of course sometimes life happens and you can’t attend the class you wanted to, so you might be tempted to skip a day. Try to resist that temptation and do something Active!
Not a gym person? Try going for a walk in the park with a buddy. Going with a buddy will help both of you stay accountable, plus the time will fly by. Instead of sitting at the local Coffee shop and gossiping over that boy you like, go for a walk and talk.
What do you do during your 45 minutes?
