WHILE being fit is a goal we all strive for, it means different things for different people. It might mean fitting into your "skinny" jeans, being ready and able to run a marathon, or simply getting your body into a healthier condition after a health problem.
We'll show you some ways you can get fit, and live your life to the fullest! Follow these 5 Steps:
1 DEVELOP THE RIGHT ATTITUDE: The mind may not be a muscle, but it's still incredibly strong, and can make the difference between succeeding and failing at your goal. Being fit is a marathon, not a sprint, and it requires making changes to your entire lifestyle.
2 INCORPORATE MORE PHYSICAL EXERCISE INTO YOUR DAILY ROUTINE: By regularly challenging yourself, you keep your physical self "tuned up." If getting fit means losing weight, this will help the pounds melt away—and stay away! If you're training for endurance, this is the way ensure steady improvement.
3 START AN EXERCISE REGIMEN AND STICK TO IT: Try running or using the treadmill a set number of days a week, gradually increasing in intensity and/or length of exercise.
