10 Easy Fitness Tips And Tricks For The Busy Millenial

Living the healthy life is living the good life, but not all of us have the time to set aside for the gym. What some might not realize is that you can fit in pockets of exercise in your daily life without having to lag behind schedule. Here are just a few tips and tricks to get you started on the road to fitness!

1. Exercise in short bursts.

Exercising for hours at a time is not necessary to make an impact on your body. Working out in short but intense intervals is just as effective, so you need not worry about not having enough time on your plate.

2. Take the stairs.

Between the elevator or the stairs, always go for the latter as you will be able to burn more calories that way. No treadmill? No problem! Just walk up the stairs like a treadmill. Breaking out into a run will even help increase your heart rate — just be careful not to trip.

3. Park your car a little further.

Parking your car farther than you normally would forces you to make longer walks to and from your vehicle, ergo giving you a small window of opportunity to get some mild exercise in everyday.

4. Don’t stay idle.

Lining up for a movie ticket or the bus ride home? Don’t stay stagnant; you can tone up your legs with calf raises while you wait, and if you’re more open to bigger movements, you can consider making arm circles while you pass the time.

5. Use that commercial break.

The next time you’re sitting at home on a television binge, get up at the next commercial break and make it more productive by incorporating exercise. The quick workout is timed perfectly, making sure you won’t miss a minute of your favorite series.

6. Stay hydrated.

Hydration is always an important factor when it comes to fitness and optimum health. Drinking 8 glasses (or more) of water each day can help your body detox and embrace weight loss easier.

7. Eat right.

What’s the point in making the effort to sweat off all the weight when you’re going to put it all back on and ruin all your hard work? Lay off the junk food and opt for healthier alternatives, like fruits and other organic substitutes.

8. Get enough sleep.

A lack of sleep will take its toll on your body, so make sure you get the proper amount of Zs everyday. A good night’s rest can boost your energy levels and ensure you have the stamina to exercise and improve your overall fitness.

9. Find a fitness buddy.

Working out towards a fitness goal is always easier — and heaps more fun — when you have a friend around to go through the struggles with you. Your fitness buddy will be there to push you to your limits, and working out will ultimately become less of a fight when you have a friend there to motivate you.

10. Enroll in a fitness class.

What better way to get your butt moving than to make the commitment to a fitness class? Consider something like GuavaPass, which offers its users a variety of classes — ranging from Yoga, Kickboxing, Spinning, Dance, CrossFit, and Pilates — with a platform that caters to your schedule and interests.
