Summer is officially over, and it’s time to start gearing up for the holidays.
Today, I’ll tell you about a neat little tip
that can help you stay fit.
One Surprising Tip For A Fit Body This Fall
Fall’s here, and it’s a VERY busy time of year for most people. The kids are back in school. The holidays are just a few weeks away, and the “to do” list just seems to see no end in sight. That’s why most people let their fitness slide by the wayside, around this time. However, it doesn’t have to be that way.What if I told you that even just a minute here and there of exercise could help keep you fit and trim?
Well, a recent study done by the University of Utah shows that it’s possible.
For example, one minute of an “intense” movement that gets your heart and lungs pumping is more effective than moving around at a very low intensity for the same amount of time.
Jessie X. Fan, one of the study’s authors, stated that: “What we learned is that for preventing weight gain, the intensity of the activity matters more than duration.”
So the moral of the story? Get moving, even if it’s just for a minute or two!
How about doing some quick pushups three times a day or parking far away from the stores you have to go to? What if you took the stairs and walked up faster than you normally would?
Challenge yourself, one minute at a time. Don’t worry about spending a ton of time working out all at once because every little bit counts! Following this routine will help you stay slim and trim this holiday season.
Why not take advantage of a fitness assessment, conducted by one of our certified personal trainers, to jump start your holiday routine?
During this assessment, you’ll receive information on how to best tone and trim YOUR body.
