Exercise To Lose Weight Too?
A Bit More Exercise Will Probably Help Your Weight Loss
If you increase your current amount of physical movement, you will have ‘improved’ your lifestyle. The amount you exercise is undoubtedly an important factor in your success for ‘long term’ weight loss maintenance. Some of us enjoy visits to the Gym, some of us hyperventilate at the thought!
If you sit at a desk/computer all day 5 days a week, you have to accept that you are burning very few calories. If you eat more than the few required, you will store the excess and gain weight! Not a punishment, a reality!
Exercise Needn’t Be Hard Work – Enjoy it!
Be certain to find something you enjoy, you’ll be more apt to stick with it. Try:
- walking with a friend – or a dog!
- joining an amateur sports group
- joining a group like a running/walking club
- some classes at your local gym.
Once you give exercise a chance, you will begin to enjoy its positive benefits on your ‘inner self’ as well; you may enjoy it so much you may even become “hooked”, leading to many more long term benefits!
Your Local Gym
If you can find the time, your local gym will provide a wide variety of aerobic options, such as treadmills, cross trainers, exercise bikes, stairmasters, rowing and ski machines, so that you can just switch on and get started with your workout. It can be a good idea to diversify between different machines and different speeds/levels of resistance, as your body can get used to a certain routine and, after a number of sessions, the same routine will not work your heart and lungs as much as it once did.
Need a commitment? For those who prefer to work out as part of a group, many gyms provide classes, such as various forms of dance, body pump, body combat and step aerobics with a trained instructor to ensure that you get the most out of your workout.
But Remember to Tell Us and Your GP!
Pick whichever form of exercise suits you and your lifestyle best to help lose or maintain your weight, but always remember to notify us of your decision. If you are not used to any form of exercise, always consult your G.P. first!
