In order to get on the right track and find that fitness Zen you might be seeking, at times you may have to shuffle your life around. If you are like most modern day men you have a full time job including all the extra-curricular responsibilities it entails, plus a family at home that needs every minute of your spare time. So where do you make the time to dedicate yourself to train?
To start you might want to look for a suitable gym near your work. That can allow you to stretch your day ever so much that your lunch break affords just enough time to get a run in, or a strength training session. On top of finding time to train you also need to eat right. If you’ve never counted calories in your lifetime this might be a good time to start. All the while being careful to maintain that balance of course. You need a well-rounded diet to ensure you’re getting all the good while doing away with the bad.
The bad doesn’t necessarily need to mean junk food. Anything loaded with carbohydrates and cholesterol including the man staples meat and potatoes, can be a huge diet wrecker. But with the right dedication and motivation, you can eat more often and enjoy what your eating day to day just the same.
Depending on your goals you most likely need to do some form of strength training and cardio. It’s a simple formula and the end game will be different for each individual wheter you want to just workout to stay fit, lose weight or gain muscle. It will be very important to have defined goals and measure them regularly to make sure you are making progress. Getting into a groove and achieving your fitness goals can help you feel younger, improve self-confidence, improve your outlook on life and most importantly your health. It can be done and it can be done the hard way with little pain. No fad diets, no fat burner supplements that ramp up your heart rate just plain old diet and exercise and of course, dedication!
