High Energy, Low Amount of Time

When I circuit train, I do one minute of high intensity cardio (burpees, jump squats, etc) after I complete a circuit to pump up my heart rate. It makes my work-out go faster and I feel much more energized for the rest of the day!

Exercise Goals

Set yourself up with some goals. What do you want to achieve? It could be # of minutes per week or # of miles in a month. The desire increases-I have to get out there and work on it.

Dancing before a run

I warm-up for my runs by dancing around the house to my favorite songs. I try to shake my whole body to get everything nice and loose. But, I go easy at first! This is the best way to get pumped up and loose!

I use youtube.com to change my routine

Ever felt bored with your work out? Well I have. I used to never know what to do until I typed work out into the youtube search line. There are hundreds of different things there to try out. Most are only 10 minutes long but 3 times 10 minutes is 30. And it's a tone of fun too!

Go to the gym at off times

Intimidated by the gym? Try going at off hours. There are less people and it's easier to find staff members to ask questions of.

TAKE ACTION EARLY

When it comes to exercise it is easier if it is done first thing in the morning. It gets the serotonin (feel good hormone) going, which makes for a good start to the day. Then you won't have to worry about it after work. It is already taken care of.

Early Morning Workout

I've found that getting my workout out of the way (first thing in the morning) works best for me. I use to talk myself out of going to the gym after work (too tired, no time, etc.)
