Being healthy doesn't mean starving yourself and spending hours and hours at the gym. Believe it or not, being healthy can be fun. Being active and staying fit can be enjoyable and something you look forward to every day.
NordicTrack is trying to show that you can make fun happen while working out. You can have fun and smile while moving. They try to prove this by incorporating two forms of exercise that you rarely see together: dancing and running on a treadmill. Forty treadmills were placed in one room where a dance party of sorts came to be.
There are all types of exercises you can perform to stay healthy and fit. If you don't like to run, you don't have to run. If you don't like to swim, you don't have to. The most important thing is to find something you enjoy and something that makes you happy. If you can find something that you enjoy doing, incorporate that into your daily life. Here are a few tips to get you started.
1. Don't try and do it all at once
Start a small workout regime and work your way up. If you spend hours at a time on a treadmill, you will burn yourself out the first day.
2. Find several forms of exercise that you enjoy
By doing a variety of exercises, you will enjoy something fresh every day and not become burned out as quickly.
3. Set aside a certain time every day to exercise and make it a priority
It is easy to give up time exercising for other activities but a few minutes of exercise will give you more energy to accomplish your tasks later in the day.
4. Find a friend
There is nothing like having the support from a friend.
