10 Steps To Physical Fitness....Just Because I Need This Reminder

10 Steps To Physical Fitness

Step 1: Determine your WHY?
What this means is ask yourself why you want to do this?

Step 2: Set your goals and figure out what you want to get out of exercising/losing weight/feeling better?

Step 3: Set your fitness and nutrition goals.
What workout are you going to do?

Step 4: Know your support team.
Find a workout buddy/partner. Plan healthy meals and include your family and your motivating friends. Surround yourself with those who encourage you and support you.

Step 5: Participate in workouts/events/trainings/classes.
Take a look around your local gym for classes. Sit in on any classes you may be interested in before participating to make sure you are comfortable. Take advantage of local walking/bike trails, etc. Look for information on marathons, health & fitness fairs, and any other health related events.

Step 6: Get connected online.
You would be surprised to see how many people are on their own personal fitness journey just like you. Get connected on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and other social media sites. You may want to use search features to find other who have similar interests and goals as you.

Step 7: Create your lists……
Sit down and make a list of things you like to do. These don’t have to be serious cardio workouts or anything, it can even be something as simple as a stroll on a sunny evening. But list them. Also, make a list of foods you like to eat. And make a list of those things you feel are keeping you from reaching your goals for now.
v Step 8: Follow a system.
Find a system that works best for you and follow it. You may need a diet plan, a workout plan, or both, or an even more complex plan. Once you have a plan mapped out, follow it!

Step 9: Then start working. v Work toward your goals by following your plan.

Step 10: Go share your story with everyone you know!
