But whether it is at home or at a multi-gym, there is something that I want to tell you. Whatever you are doing, you must try and do it regularly.
Consistency is very important for an exercise routine to have desired effect on our body. Getting started is easy part, it is sticking to a regular exercise routine that is difficult and this is what makes most people give up in between.
Most people get on to a beautiful start. They buy track suits and gym-wear, running shoes and a whole lot of other gear. Their first day at gym is almost a celebration.
Then as days go on, they find it increasingly difficult to meet domestic and professional demands and so their routine slows down and finally comes to a complete workout burn out. In other words, stop working out completely
It is a universal fact that most chosen time for work outs is evenings. If you can stick to work out in evenings then it is well and good. But most of us find ourselves exhausted in evenings. We find ourselves physically and mentally drained. And at that time our bodies will be just too tired for a work out.
The result is that after first few days of working out, interest just dwindles away. The other reason is that in evenings a thousand and one things may crop up and then there is hardly time for a warm up. So it is best to set aside some time for exercise in morning itself.
There are two advantages of setting apart time in morning. The first advantage is that in morning our bodies are fresh and full of energy. Now over here I want to make one point clear.
There is a popular misconception that exercise depletes body of energy but case is just opposite. Exercise pumps up more blood through different parts of body and warms up body, so in fact, after exercise we feel more charged and ready to face challenges of day.
The second advantage is that in morning we can plan for whole day without letting exercise routine affect rest of our activities.
What about those of us who have never worked out before? In such cases you might need to start off under personal supervision of an instructor and that may require that you go to a gym. But what I would suggest is that there are two simple things that any one can do for which you do not need help of any instructor.
You know what these are? They are walking and swimming. Any body can walk and those of you who know how to swim can swim. For these two activities you do not need much gear and experts say that these two exercises have no side effects and are excellent stress busters.
So in morning wake up just half an hour earlier, put on your walking shoes and hit roads. Most roads will be less crowded at this hour and less polluted too. It is a wonderful way to start a day.
