How To Get Fit Without Even Realizing It!

By Lauren Turinetti | May 7, 2018

You might think that changing your ways in order to improve your health is difficult, but if you break the process down into smaller steps, transforming your lifestyle (and your body) becomes much easier. Here are our recommendations for simple, effective lifestyle changes that will positively impact your health:

Learn How To Cook Meals At Home

Stop getting fast food and stop eating frozen meals from the grocery store. Cook real meals. You can enroll in a cooking class, or you can watch videos online to learn how to prepare delicious meals. If it makes it easier, you could even try a meal planning app or service. Instead of eating a lot of fat, sugar or sodium, you can buy fresh vegetables along with low-fat proteins so that you can prepare nutritious meals for lunch and dinner.

Limit Your Alcohol Consumption

If you are drinking a lot of alcohol, then it is damaging your health. Excess alcohol consumption can lead to problems with your liver, and drinking too much can affect you mentally. You might begin to make poor decisions while drinking such as driving a vehicle or engaging in risky behaviors with others. Alcohol has tons of hidden calories that can sabotage your progress. When you want to stop drinking but can’t, it is time to seek help at a rehabilitation facility.

Remember To Socialize Frequently

An important part of being healthy is socializing frequently. You can do this by having an enjoyable hobby that has groups of people that meet to talk about their interests. Alternatively, you can become involved in community activities. Experts recommend socializing approximately twice a week to prevent health problems such as depression.

Exercise Several Times a Week

Make the most of your time for exercising by engaging in an intense CrossFit program at a local gym. With this form of exercise, you are enjoying several types of physical activities, including calisthenics, gymnastics and interval training. You won’t get bored with this type of exercise program, and you can also compete with other individuals who are participating in the routines.

Don’t Smoke Cigarettes

Smoking cigarettes is bad for your internal organs, causing damage that can shorten your lifespan. If you can’t stop smoking on your own, then begin to use nicotine patches or participate in a smoking cessation program. Within a few months of overcoming the cigarette-smoking habit, you will notice a change in the way that you feel.

Make Healthy Living a Habit

By beginning a healthier lifestyle today, you can improve the way that you feel right away. Continue to have healthy living habits so that you will have a longer and happier life that doesn’t include having frequent illnesses or immobility.

  • Everybody needs a little candy during the holidays, right??
  • We are supposed to have a heat wave over the next few days!! 50 deg at the end of December?!?
.
In honor of the warm weather we will be bringing back another running #12daysofchristmas  #NoEquipment #NoExcuses workout!
.
This one is brought you by another awesome Christmas movie...National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation!
.
Get your butt to the track or measure out 400m down your road and get after it!!
.
How fast were your 400m splits?? 👇👇
  • Christmas is just around the corner!! Coach Jared is getting into the spirit of the season with some box jumps from today's workout!
  • Today's #12daysofchristmas #NoEquipment #NoExcuses workout is inspired by one of the all time great Christmas movies Home Alone!
.
Having the goal to just be able to just move our bodies in a natural, and fluid motion should be the first step before we add in any level of intensity
.
Intensity can be added to workouts in a few different ways, but the two most common ways are speed and load
.
Today's workout however is intended to be performed slowly using just our bodyweight for load! We want you to strive for quality over speed in this one
.
The movements today are highly functional. Nothing is as simple as just jumping (vertical jumps), or getting yourself up off the ground (burpee). The wall walks are intended to help you strengthen your upper body. In today's world we are often asked to put something on the top shelf in the kitchen, or pull the box down from the attic. This all requires a strong overhead position!
