“The right fitness fits as it comes with our desire to never quit” b. x
Fitness is part of our fulfilled life and if we develop a genuine love of looking after our health and bodies it is hard to quit being fit. Fitness comes in many forms and seeking to find the ‘one’ that best suits you can be expensive and frustrating. Also, as we are well aware, humans seek to find the easiest and fastest way to get our fitness goals met thus making the task tedious. So how do we get fit?
It is simple. There is not just one type of fitness that will suit our bodies, there are a multitude, but the best ones are quality training that is purposeful and health improving.
We all have factors that impact on our fitness, and schedules and time are the prime factors, specifically for women and busy Mum’s.
- Bring the children with you to training, whether it be walking in the mornings, an outdoor class or going to the gym. Show them and talk about what and why you remain fit. They will then understand the full implications of it and not just think ‘Mummy is not listening or watching me’.
- Alone time training is also very important. Try to fit in at least 3 sessions a week just you and headphones or you and your friends.
- Energy level and motivation. Use the motivation that training gives you a fresh mind and body ready to tackle any task.
