Top 5 Fitness Tips

Now that I'm thinking about it, this video might've been helpful before summer started, but I'm all for year-round balance.  Screw the summer bod.

I'm always asked specific questions like "How do I get abs?" "How do I get a butt?" etc.  Instead of answering these specifically to start, I uploaded a video talking about my top 5 fitness tips to get in better shape.  Where better is relative to your level of fitness!

Whether you're a beginner in health/fitness or just looking for some new thoughts, this should help.

Take a look at my top 5 tips below, and watch the video for workout clips and more details!

Incorporate HIIT -Add high intensity interval training into your "routine".  Spike your heart rate and bring it back down to maximize fat and caloric burning.  And who doesn't love to get cardio done as quickly as possible?

Lift weights - No, you won't get bulky.  Trash that mindset, please!  

Adding light weights to your routine will keep you burning calories through the day, speed up your metabolism, and give you a nice look.  You don't have to do anything extreme or heavy, just add some into the mix.  Don't fear the weight rack!

Be consistent - Like anything in life, good things come with consistency.  Don't think that you have to workout every single day for three weeks -- Just come up with a schedule that works for you and your lifestyle, and then stick with it.  

If that's 3 days a week, keep up your 3 days a week.  Figure out something that works for you and make it a lifestyle, not a quick chapter.

Keep it simple - Don't try to copy all the girls on Instagram with five resistance bands and crazy workouts.  Especially if you're new to your fitness journey, keep your workouts simple.  

It's amazing how much you can get done with just your body.  Try jumprope, walking/running outside or on the treadmill, the stairs, basic pushups, and more.  

Don't have a workout routine - Yeah, this might sound weird, but don't have a "routine".  A routine for days to workout is OK, but again, I think being flexible and working with your schedule works too if you can swing it.  

When you have a routine (ex: thinking you have to do the treadmill or elliptical every time you go to the gym), you're setting yourself up for frustration and disappointment.  Plus, it's good to switch it up. 

If you set yourself up for a specific machine or workout, don't be mad when those machines are taken.  Just get active, be flexible, and go with the flow if you're at the gym.  And switch it up!
