When is the best time to start a fitness regimen? You can start your fitness journey immediately. In fact, it’s the best way to do it. While I believe that at Prime Fitness in Totowa, New Jersey, can provide you with exceptional guidance that can help you get fit faster, you don’t have to wait until you come in to start. You can begin in small ways right now.
Let’s discuss what getting fit isn’t about. It isn’t eating a salad one day and junk food the next. It isn’t about shooting hoops with the guys on weekends and living a sedentary lifestyle the rest of the week. It’s about making decisions, large and small, that lead you to a healthier lifestyle. There’s no magic pill or perfect workout, but consistent effort to eat healthier, get more exercise and make the lifestyle changes for a healthier you.
If you want to eat healthier, just making two changes can be significant, such as cutting out foods with added sugar and eliminating highly processed food, such as food made with refined flour or processed meat. For some people, that wipes out their entire diet. Find a way to substitute whole foods for junk foods with extra sugar. It can be as simple as eating an apple instead of a candy bar. Read labels and opt for those with fewer ingredients, such as choosing natural peanut butter that contains only peanuts over one that has added sugar and a list of ingredients that could be in a chemistry lab.
You don’t have to start with a formal program of exercise immediately, just move more. If you have a desk job, get up and walk around for five minutes every hour. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Do jumping jacks during television commercials or stretches. You can even save money by subscribing to streaming options that include commercials, so you can binge watch and still get exercise.
