The reason so many people accept failure in their fitness endeavors is that life, quite simply, gets in the way. All the cardio in the world and the best workout program ever designed cannot undo your daily lifestyle. Andy Coggan, Gold’s Gym personal trainer, has developed eight lifestyle tips that will allow you to get the most out of your fitness routine-after leaving the gym:
Limit TV and Internet Time – Time spent in front of the TV or computer is time spent sitting or lying down. Try to limit this time to an hour each night, you’ll be amazed at how much more you accomplish and how much better you feel.
Plan Your Meals – Make a plan ahead of time to determine what you will be eating, and then stick to it. Go to the grocery store and buy only what you need for planned meals.
Drink Water- Water is necessary for the proper function of all cells in your body and replaces other high calorie drink options from your diet. Strive for a minimum of 64 ounces per day, and more on days that you exercise.
