Making a New Year’s Resolution to lose weight and sculpt a slim and sexy physique may seem cliché, but it’s a great way to move toward a healthier lifestyle and a huge confidence booster.
Don’t know how to begin? There are lots of resources available for starting a healthier lifestyle, including joining our new medically supervised Waist Watcher’s Club.
Studies have found that losing weight with the support of others is many times more successful than doing it on your own.
Here are some basic exercise tips to give you a toned body.
Get Started and Keep Going
Two of the toughest aspects of starting a new exercise routine are actually getting started and keeping your motivation. There are many ways to help keep you on track, including smartphone apps to track your progress, working out with a friend, and keeping in a consistent routine.
Remember, it’s a good idea to start slow so don’t be discouraged if you haven’t got killer abs by February. Healthy weight loss and muscle toning are gradual processes, and your eventual results will be worth it in the end.
Take it Outside
Skip the fees and overcrowded gym atmosphere, and take your workout outdoors! If you live in Florida like we do, it’s easy to take exercise outside in the winter. Fresh air and sunlight can help you get energized for your workout and keeps things interesting. Swimming, cycling, and running are all great outdoor activities that will help make you look and feel great.
Switch it Up
Don’t do the same workout all the time; try different routines to work a variety of muscles. Alternate them throughout the week to keep your muscles from getting used to the challenge.
Try trampoline jumping, interval training (sprint for one minute and walk for 5 minutes), or do a different type of cardio each week. Switching up your workout can help you stay motivated and get toned all over.
