Starting Your Fitness Journey

Staying in good shape takes commitment! And fuelling your body with the right food is extremely important. With the flood of contradictory information out there, you might not know what to believe.

In order to truly commit to any fitness program, you need to change your attitudes and beliefs about keeping fit. You must be willing to work hard, even when you’re feeling tired or lazy.

Keep fit by simply walking. Walking is a great way to maintain fitness. It improves circulation, burns calories and strengthens your muscles. While walking, be sure to walk as straight up as possible without arching or leaning forward or backward. Avoid tilting your body, as this will increase your chance of straining muscles.

If you are looking for new ways of keeping fit, join a martial arts class! It can be exciting, interesting, challenging, but also fun. The extra activity and exercises that are associated with the martial arts will serve to improve your fitness levels.
Indulge yourself in a protein sport’s bar, 15 minutes before you work out. This is an effective way of keeping up your energy. It hits your system much faster than any meals before a fitness session.

When running, keep your eyes on the goal. This helps you reach it in no time.

Eating a small plant protein snack 30 minutes before your meal helps reducing acid reflux. Plant proteins such as lentils, whole grains, and hazelnuts are easy to digest, and have been shown to improve the function of the muscles normally effected by reflux.
Staying hydrated is essential for your health, particularly when you’re working out and losing a lot of water through sweat. How much you need to drink, depends on your age, gender, height, weight, exercise intensity, and the duration of your exercise. People who sweat a lot need to drink more. As a guideline you should be aiming to drink 1.5-2 litres (6 large glasses) daily.
