Quick Tips For Starting Workout Program
Tips for Starting A Home Workout Program
By: Ilyana Castaneda
One of the toughest things I hear my friends and clients talk about when starting a workout program is finding the time to workout. Like Jim Rohn said, "Either you run the day or the day runs you.“ So what I’m saying is that just like setting time to meet up with your friends, take care of errands, and run around to appointments, it’s also important to schedule a time to workout. No matter what time of day works best for you make this a time that you are totally committed to.
Personally, I work out at 5am when I’m not on a break from teaching. Why on earth did I pick 5am? Well 5am is a time that no one in my house is up, I won’t get interrupted or have to ignore my son to workout, and I get it done and it gives me time to take the rest of the day on! I have my alarm on my iPhone programmed and set to go off. The night before I check my workout schedule and I get the DVDs that I am going to use and I put it in the DVD player and if I have to do a second one then I put that next to the DVD Player. Right now the program I’m working out to Les Mills Pump so I"m going by that calendar. I do this because honestly at 5am I don’t even know my name! So I have to commit myself, and tell my self in the morning GET UP GET UP!
So to sum it up here are some quick tips:
1. Pick a time and stick with it! YOU run your day not the other way around!
2. Set your alarm to remind you.
3. Set up everything you need the night before so that you do not have an excuse!
4. Believe in yourself! You can do anything you set your mind to. If you need an accountability partner contact me. I’d love to help you out!
