Easy Tips to Get Fit Faster
Regardless of the science, everyone has a different definition of physical fitness based on their personal preferences. There are numerous methods for achieving any component of physical fitness; I will discuss a few here. You should be familiar with the five primary components of physical fitness identified by science. All of the "keys" to physical fitness require ongoing effort on the part of the individual seeking to improve his or her fitness level.
After we've established these points, we can move on to discussing a few quick ways I know you can improve your fitness level. To be precise, I'm going to discuss four (4) pieces of advice I would give to anyone looking to lose weight quickly.
Thus, without further ado, here we go!
1. Sprint frequently
Whether you're running, riding a bike, jump roping, or scaling a very tall tree, push yourself to the limit. Naturally, this reduces the amount of time you spend on the activity, but the overall physiology of the activity benefits you as well. Having said that, I suppose I should explain the final statement.
If you're looking to run a marathon or swim in Tahiti, the preceding statement is a complete fabrication. If, on the other hand, you desire to be strong, powerful, energetic, lean, and muscular, my statement is accurate (give me my nickel - another grape please). Sprinters are muscular, lean, and powerful. If you don't believe me, simply type "track sprinter" into Google images and observe the physiques that result.
On the other hand, individuals who engage in long-distance, low-intensity exercise (long-distance running, biking, etc.) are more likely to be thin, less muscular, and have a less well-balanced physique. You can also search for "endurance athlete" in Google images.
While I admire both types of fitness activity and physiques, I admit that sprinters' physiques more closely resemble my idea of a fit body image. Therefore, if you desire a functional, strong, powerful, lean, and vibrant body, begin sprinting!
2. Eliminate Grains and Dairy
Fortunately, this tip is gaining traction and acceptance in the fitness world. The bottom line is that our bodies were not designed to consume grains or dairy products from non-human animals. Cow's milk, goat's milk, or any other milk other than human milk was created for that species' infants, not for you and me. While human milk was created for our consumption, it was only intended to be consumed during infancy. Once we can eat, chew, and handle our food, we are meant to consume the phenomenally nourishing foods that the earth naturally provides.
Grains are abundant because our forefathers discovered that growing wheat, rye, or oats and carrying it around in a sack was a lot easier than chasing down a rabbit or rooting around for walnuts during a snowstorm. Fortunately, we are not in such desperate need of nourishment these days. If you're a starving mess, go ahead and stock up on milk and bread. Heck, if you're truly hungry, eat anything you can get your hands on!
However, if fitness is your primary goal and not simply survival, you should cut back on grains and dairy. They are difficult on the body, difficult to digest, many are addictive, they cause inflammation, and our bodies respond by becoming bloated, sluggish, and fatty. There is even evidence that grains (primarily wheat) may cause verifiable brain damage and contribute to disorders such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and depression.
Maintain a diet consisting primarily of lean meats, fibrous vegetables, nuts, berries, and melons. This is the type of food that our bodies were designed to consume, so give it a shot.
3. Work with a Fitness Coach
I know, I know, this isn't a particularly novel tip, but it's one of the best I can give you. According to my observations, less than 1% of most gym members work with a personal trainer, while more than 60% discontinue attendance and eventually cancel their membership. Every January, you see it! The gym fills up with herds of people who shuffle toward the treadmills as if led by some primal force. After a few weeks, you see fewer and fewer new faces, and by March, you're back to the same group of regulars.
However, we do know that those who work with and continue to work with a personal trainer or fitness coach adhere to their programs, attend the gym regularly, and eventually develop habits that contribute to a more fit lifestyle. Working with a fitness coach or trainer is one of the most beneficial recommendations I can make to anyone looking to improve their fitness level. My only caution is to pick your coach carefully. I employ a professional coach to manage the entirety of my fitness program. That is the degree to which I believe in this factor.
4. Thou Shalt Have 60 Days of Selfishness
Many people struggle to lose weight, in part because it requires self-discipline. Not only while you exercise, but also while you cook, eat, and interact with your family and friends. If you prioritize making others happy over taking time for yourself, I can assure you that your chances of achieving a fitness lifestyle are slim to none. You must learn to center your attention on yourself, your goals, your dreams, what you require, and what will assist you in becoming fit.
This means assisting your spouse and children in adjusting to the fact that they will be eating more broccoli and skipping the chicken nuggets this week. They may occasionally be required to empty the dryer and fold some clothes if you are going to the gym.
Your girlfriend/boyfriend will have to adjust to the fact that you will be going for a bike ride on Saturday mornings, and she/he can either join you or sleep late, but you will be getting fit. Finally, personal fitness necessitates individual attention and care. If you can make yourself a priority for 60 days without allowing anything or anyone to deter you from pursuing your fitness goals, you will have a solid foundation upon which to build a lifestyle you can be proud of.
