I have a very short – but important! – message for you today. For some of you, it may be hard to hear. Here it is: Feeling like you don’t have time to exercise is NOT an excuse to skip your workouts…
Because workouts are THAT important for your health! Your workouts are literally the Fountain of Youth for your cells. (Even older “aging” cells.)
Among all the other benefits of exercise, short & intense workouts actually can boost the mitochondria in your cells, which are tiny “powerhouses” that help your body make energy. These powerhouses start to slow down over time … but working out can help delay that process!
Even if you only have 5 minutes to get in some exercise, doing SOMETHING is far better than doing NOTHING.
You can …
- Do squats while you’re waiting for your coffee machine to do its thing in the morning.
- Park farther away from your office or the grocery store.
- Crank out a 5-minute core routine.
- Speed-walk around the block.
- Repeat a circuit of 15 squats, 10 push-ups, and 20 crunches for 5 minutes.
- Turn on some music and have a quick dance party.
Remember, no one ever magically has the time to workout – we have to make the time for things that are important to us.
Maybe you’ve heard this saying: “You are only one workout away from a GOOD MOOD.” It’s SO TRUE – a workout can rev up your body’s feel-good hormones, give you a mental break, and shift your focus, which makes it a great way to turn your day around!
You know I am all about POSITIVE ACTION, right? Basically, focusing on the actions that will move you toward whatever it is that you want.
I’ve got a GREAT mindset exercise that’ll help you set amazing new goals for 2022, and even more importantly…Give you the power to reach those goals.
Just a quick post this morning to wish you and your family a happy & healthy holiday! We at Fitness Lifestyle Personal Training, LLC are honored that you’ve chosen to be part of our fitness family.
