Losing Weight: 5 Tips To Get Fit

June 8, 2009 by Coach Ronda in Weight Loss with 0 Comments

Do you find it difficult to find the motivation to get fit? Maybe it’s lack of time or you can’t get to the gym or you’re just plain too tired when you do have the time to work out. Believe it or not, you are not alone.

And then there’s the “lose weight fast” route. The diet and fitness industry sells billions of dollars worth of products, pills, and gimmicks every year. These diet plans and exercise programs all tell you that they’re the best. There’s Pilates, spinning, traditional cardio, and all kinds of celebrity backed fitness machines and diet companies. But, the truth is that when it comes to fitness there is no magic pill or diet. Complete fitness requires proper nutrition, and effective and regular exercise.

If you’re struggling to wade between the many distractions and choices, here are some ways to get your motivation to exercise and get fit:

  1. Tune out the commercial messages. Don’t pay attention to the myths, quick fixes, or whole-heartedly trust any celebrity endorsements.
  2. Find a fitness plan that works. That includes proper nutrition, creating a calorie deficit, boosting your metabolism, and doing more efficient workouts. Workouts based on newer research allow you to spend less time and effort and get better results.
  3. Make a commitment. Don’t hop from one program to another hoping to find that quick fix. Once you find a good program, stick with it. Success takes consistent time and effort.
  4. Monitor the results you’re getting and if needed, make modifications to your plan. Eliminate what’s not working, and do more of what is producing the results you want.
  5. If you want to make a big change, make lots of little changes. Don’t turn your life upside down to accommodate your fitness plan. Instead, find a way to work it into your schedule without disrupting things. Find a complete and workable fitness plan and commit to it. Track your results, and adjust as needed until you get the results you want.

Staying motivated to exercise and get fit is no easy task. Knowing that you feel better when you’re physically fit is simply not always enough. But, if you get rid of all the noise and don’t fall for the false promises of “losing weight fast” with no effort, you’re on the right path to making a change. Find a proven program, commit, track your progress and you’ll soon be on your way to a healthier lifestyle.
