We like to think of fitness, weight loss, healthy living whatever you want to call it, as a way of life, something you enjoy (most of the time), and something that adds a massive benefit to your life. It’s simple really, the fitter, more healthier version of you is by far the happiest in the long run.
Let’s presume that you already have your structured workouts in place, your boot camps, home PT sessions, for example. They keep you going, and give you a big boost every week. But what about your daily habits, are they pushing you on the health and fitness path? Daily habits like, taking the stairs, walking an extra stop on the tube, walking to lunch, borrowing a dog and walking that. There are so many opportunities in your day where you could be active, raising your metabolism and burning calories. It’s the small things that add up, and over time you will have walked an extra 5-10K per week without really thinking about it.
Get on board with this plan for 4 weeks, buy a pedometer, or an app for your phone, and track your steps. Each week, beat your previous weeks steps.
Take a walking meeting in your local park. Get out of the office, don’t sit at your desk all day, get out, get some fresh air and see your productivity go through the roof.
walking for an extra 1 hour per day can burn between 200-400 calories depending on your weight, speed, height etc.
Work for 25 minutes, then take a 5 minute break, of walking, drinking water, standing up, get off your chair!
It’s the small things in life that adds up and makes a difference. Make the change today and be healthier in every aspect of your life. Walk yourself fit!
