The sun is starting to peek out from behind the clouds and temperatures are rising above 70 degrees, which means summer is here! With half of June under out belts, we thought it would be a good time to re-address our New Year’s Resolutions that we made as we welcomed 2014.
It’s easy to let life get in the way of making the conscious effort to better ourselves on a daily basis. What’s important to remember is that it’s never too late to make a positive change to improve your quality of life.
If you haven’t been keeping up with your New Year’s resolutions, don’t let the six-month-slump get you down. Re-vamp your resolutions and get back on track to a better you.
If you’re new to the fitness game, a goal of 30 minutes of moderate cardiovascular activity per day is a great place to start. Whether you choose walking, jogging, dancing, yoga – every little bit counts. Increase your exercise time when you feel you’re no longer getting tired.
Ducle Zemora, of WebMD says “For the average person, a good fitness program consists of exercises that work out the whole body. A cardio work improves the function and health of the heart, lungs, and blood vessels. Weight-bearing exercises enhance the function and health of the bones, muscles, joints, and connective tissues.”
It’s important to keep your workout routine dynamic, so your body and mind don’t get tired of the same activity day-after-day. The app Sworkit provides customized circuit training style workouts, and can be a great way to switch things up. Combine Sworkit with Nexercise’s notifications and rewards, and you’ve got a recipe for success and motivation to reach your long-term resolutions.
Log your Nexercise every time you’re active and you’ll not only be improving your quality of life, you’ll also be earning prizes while you do it. And don’t forget to take before and after photos!
At the end of the year, write us and tell us your story. We love featuring inspiring Nexercise users on the blog to help motivate our users.
