The most effective fitness routine in the world is useless if you can’t stick to it. So what are the key factors of an effective and sustainable fitness plan?
Here’s my top 5 tips 🙂
#1 You MUST enjoy it
If you don’t enjoy your fitness routine you won’t stick to it. Find a style of training that you enjoy and not only will you’ll find it much easier to stick to, but you’ll also find yourself pushing yourself a lot harder.
#2 It NEEDS to be challenging
The only way to improve and get fitter is to give your body a reason to change and adapt. The way to do that is by constantly challenging yourself daily with new exercises, harder workouts and consistently out-working yourself from the day before.
#3 Find a training buddy
A training partner is the perfect way to challenge yourself and make your training a little more competitive. It’s also a great way to keep yourself and your training partner accountable.
#4 It HAS to suit your lifestyle
If you work long days and struggle to find time to workout, make sure you plan ahead. So perhaps you set your alarm early so you can workout first thing and get it out of the way. If you realistically can only train 3-4 times per week then do what you can and make the most of the sessions you can do. If you don’t have access to a gym, find equipment at home you can use.. even if it’s two tins of canned food as dumb bells!
Your training (just like your eating) should work around your lifestyle (work commitments, social life, family/friends etc), not the opposite.
Flexibility is the key to sustainability 🙂
#5 There should be plenty of variety
Progression is KEY when it comes to seeing long-term sustainable results, but if you’re not stimulated by your daily workouts then you’ll get bored… quick!
It’s important to keep plenty of variety in what you doing, just enough to keep you motivated and excited for what’s ahead.
