Tips

Here are some tips to help you stay fit and healthy:

Be Consistent
Consistency is the best tip for maintaining a successful fitness regimen. The difference between success and others who have struggled is that you have to do it every single day. No exercise program in the world works if you do not do it consistently.

Follow an Effective Exercise Routine
Top three suggestions: Strength training: Even 20 minutes a day twice a week will help tone the entire body.
• Interval training: In its most basic form, interval training might involve walking for two minutes, running for two, and alternating this pattern throughout the duration of a workout, It is an extremely time-efficient and productive way to exercise.
• Increased cardio/aerobic exercise: Accumulating 60 minutes or more a day of low- to moderate-intensity physical activity, such as walking, running, or dancing.

Set Realistic Goals
Don't strive for perfection or an improbable goal that can't be met, "Focus instead on increasing healthy behaviors." In other words, don't worry if you can't run a 5Km just yet. Make it a habit to walk 15 minutes a day, and add time, distance, and intensity from there.

Proper Hydration
Drinking water is so imperative for staying healthy, energized, and even losing weight. There are so many reasons to stay hydrated—hunger is often disguised as thirst, it boosts your metabolism, and water is the best energy drink available, he says. To find out exactly how much water you should be drinking, divide your body weight by two and aim to drink that many ounces of water every day.

Make Your Plan Fit Your Life
Too busy to get to the gym? Make your plan fit your life, You don't need fancy exercise gear and gyms to get fit. If you've got floor space, try simple floor exercises to target areas such as the hips and buttocks, legs and thighs, and chest and arms (like push-ups, squats, and lunges). Aim for 10-12 repetitions of each exercise, adding more reps and intensity as you build strength.

Proper Nutrition
Ask almost any personal trainer and they will tell you that regardless of your training goals, healthy eating is the back bone. Food is what fuels your body to reach your goals and without proper nutrition through quality foods, you are likely to stall.
