Healthy Lifestyle Challenge: The Way Fitness Should Be Tip #8

Posted: March 21, 2013 - 1:31pm

As you progress in your healthy lifestyle goals, it’s important to reassess. After 6

to 8 weeks, look at your current plan to see if it is still stimulating your body... and

your mind. Did you workout 3 times per week or more? Are you feeling increased

energy? Are you enjoying the workouts? Now that you’ve established the fitness

habit, it’s time to incorporate some variety in the workout types and get out of

your comfort zone once again. If you work out solo, try a group fitness class

a few times a week or specialty class focusing on a new exercise or intensity.

Workout with family or friends by taking hikes, running or bike rides as spring

approaches. Changing your surroundings by participating in a class or taking your

workout outdoors will have a positive impact on your routine, energy and overall

wellbeing. Your muscles and energy systems need new stimuli and new goals to

drive the motivation.
