Watch Your Fitness Levels Closely May 17, 2014

It is vital to keep fit when planning to maintain a lifestyle that is healthy. Eating a well-balanced meal is just as important as ensuring you get enough exercise.Getting fit means that you are going to have to stick to an exercise schedule. A lot of people sign a gym contract and go to a few fitness sessions. There are many people who do not enjoy exercising amongst other members of the gym as they are sure they are judging them. The equipment at the gym can become confusing for some people and these people often are not sure how they should be using them.
There is no need for you to give up the idea to improve your level of training just yet. An alternative to exercising in the gym is exercising at home. There are a lot of easy exercises a person can do in their living room. Often people feel that they will need exercise equipment that will help them get to a good shape. They end up purchasing many gimmicks and more than often these gimmicks are hardly ever used and take up space while gathering dust.

A great tip to do when setting up the area for you to start exercising would be to find your favorite cd and turn up the volume.Playing awesome music will create a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere and the workout will not feel as if you are doing a boring chore. When you start exercising at your house, it can sometimes feel like a total drag and in many cases you end up postponing your sessions. If that is what you tend to do, then get a friend to be your accountability partner. You can easily assist and encourage each other.

The first step on your exercise program will be walking on one spot. You might find that doing it to music will help you. You should do this for 5 minutes then start running on one spot for a 15 minutes session.

Next you are going to start with knee lifts. Raise your right knee so that it reaches your left elbow. Then raise your right knee so that it reaches your left elbow. You should do this between 5-10 minutes, depending on how fit you are. You are going to then spread your arms out at shoulder length.
When your cardio and legs are done, you will then start with stretch exercises. You will start by standing with your legs open with your hands touching down on the floor for 2 minutes. Bend one of your legs and leave the other one straight. Alternate between both legs so you are stretching your leg muscles. Once you are done stretching, lie down on your back. You will need to make sure that you are bending your knees and your feet are flat on the ground. You are going to start raising your head up so that your chest is on your knees.

Another important point to remember when exercising is keep hydrated at all times. If you want to achieve even better results, exercise minimum 2 times per week. To prevent exercising from becoming tedious, call a friend to join you in your quest to get fit.
