Getting started is certainly the toughest part. A great way to begin your way to a healthy and fit body is to begin with small steps. If the idea of exercising once (or several times a day!) sounds overwhelming to you, we’ve got a few tips to begin—slowly but surely—getting your life on the fitness track.
1. Stand up to take phone calls
We spend a lot of time sitting down. It’s important to have an activity that reminds us to get our blood flowing and stretch our muscles out a bit. Knowing you have to stand up when talking on the phone or responding to a text will make you unconsciously more active than before.
2. Park just a little bit farther
Small actions such as not choosing the nearest parking space add up! Walking that extra bit makes a difference. Believe us.
3. Walk or bike to your destination
Whenever possible, try unwinding by biking or walking. Got a little trip to the corner store? Leave the car behind and enjoy the fresh air.
4. Make your environment enjoyable
Working out can and should be fun. Spend time picking out your most inspiring playlist, set up a nice view at home, and clean up your space to feel at peace.
5. Have your equipment on plain sight
Having your equipment ready to go makes squeezing in a workout so much easier. Have five minutes to kill? Get on your AbsMaster and do a few reps! You’ll feel so much better for the rest of the day.
