Every year countless people make the most common New Year's resolution to get into shape. While I feel this is an excellent choice that many more people need to make, it doesn't happen over night and involves hard work on a number of different levels. Proper exercise requires sweat, concentration, determination but above all else dedication. I have found over the years that dedication is the most crucial element you will need to be successful, it's so easy to sit there and say " oh, I don't really feel like going to the gym today. I'll go tomorrow." But believe me I'm telling you when you find yourself following a routine you love your attitude will change, and you'll find yourself getting angry every time you skip a workout!
After a while you'll begin to see results not only in your physical appearance but you'll begin to notice that your health improves and your mind becomes more alert to the point where you can feel the difference.
For the next 8 weeks I will take you on an exercising adventure, allowing the body and the mind to experience several forms of exercise. From hot yoga to boxing I am going to push both body and mind. Interested? Then follow me on my movement journey and hopefully you'll fall in love with exercise just as mush as I have.
But wait! Before you begin it is important to make sure you have the following pieces:
- Proper fitting running shoes
- Workout clothing - remember it's not a fashion show!
- Towel (if you feel its necessary)
- If you like an iPod/MP3
