With starting to train clients for my course and just generally thinking over my own journey with fitness. Here are my 5 tips for starting on your fitness journey.
1. What do you want and your goals- Think about what you want out of your fitness - usually having more of a centamental focus can be more motivating e.g wanting to lose weight so I can run around with my children vs I want to lose weight to look good at the beach.
2. Figure out how you want to do it/preferences. Do you want to lift weights, do cardio or both? Try out a new sport? And if fat loss is your goal do you want to create your deficit through food or exercise alone or a combination of the two.
3. Make a schedule and make it one that you'll stick to (factor in days that you know you won't be able to exercise each week).. If you're just starting out working out for an hour 7 days a week is something you most likely won't be able to stick with. If you find that you've underestimated you can always bump it up but it can be demotivating having to taper things back. I know when I first started out I did 10 minutes a day on the cross trainer and slowly worked my way up.
4. Make a plan - Make a workout plan with the things that you love or just want to try, make it challenging but not too difficult
5. Measure your progress -
for weight loss: scales (use this as one of your methods not the only one), progress pictures, how your clothes fit, measurements ect.
For fitness: fitness testing and doing it every 4 or so weeks - make sure to record the date/time so you can see the changes over time 😊
