Find a sport that you really enjoy
You may find it difficult to think positively about fitness, let alone enjoy a particular exercise, but there is a chance that you will think too much about things. Your favorite sport doesn’t have to be popular – or even active.
If you’d rather be in the pool than running or going to the gym, you need to get on with what you do right and enjoy. A little exercise is also better than watching TV on the couch – and those who like it will do it more regularly.
According to Kelly Cosentino, fitness director at FitXR, you need to find out what motivates you to move – and keep doing it. “Many physical changes occur after the age of 40, such as a decrease in metabolism, and it is important to stay active not only for your body but also for your mind.”
Go and speak
Whether you’re spending time with family or attending meetings remotely, why not be on the go? Working while standing is good for your posture, but also for your body and mind. If you can overcome the social awkwardness of standing in a meeting, research from a 2018 Brunel University study suggests that you will benefit from feeling more engaged and confident.
Low intensity exercise is great for increasing bone density, says Emily King, Barrecore’s lead teacher. “Any form of exercise such as walking, lifting weights or a barbell strengthens your bones and reduces the risk of osteoporosis as you get older.” This is especially important for women who are more sensitive during and after menopause.
If there are three of you or fewer involved, suggest walking somewhere – walking meetings are better for brainstorming and sharing ideas.
When it comes to spending time with the family, it’s a great way to spend the day with the family – and get some fresh air while you take the whole family on a long walk and explore a new path in Hold shape.
Get stuck with your kids
Why don’t you take your 10,000 steps while your kids are playing in the park? Instead of being the parents in the park answering emails while little Llewellyn goes nuts, join in – take the opportunity to kick a ball or play tags (check out the World Tag Hunting Championships for to see how ridiculously competitive that can be).
If you are looking for a way to stay in shape but need motivation – or the responsibility factor – there is always an opportunity to train your children’s sports team at school. One of the PE teachers will likely lead the activity – but they rarely refuse to help out from a volunteer parent.
KOBOX trainer Jacob Holme demands: “Every movement is medicine – so no boredom and confusion!” Holme is a big advocate of everything that does not require a “fancy kit” and also recommends having fun with your training – no matter which one Shape – so it doesn’t become a chore.
Yes, the gyms are open normally, but that doesn’t mean home workouts will be completely refused.
Something like FitXR is a great option when you’re trying to balance your workouts while taking care of your kids. No need to go to the gym and you can easily adjust your workout between your personal life.
FitXR workouts vary in duration – so you can fit them into any part of your day – and manage them according to your kids’ schedules too. If you can purchase multiple VR headsets, you can even have fun with the multiplayer feature and play and exercise with your kids.
Your home workout can also follow a series of exercises – Barrecore offers BarreRESTORE classes to focus on stretching and mobility while ensuring that you achieve your general daily activity level.
Take the stairs
Yes, we’ve heard it all, but you can really stay in shape by always walking up the stairs. Whether you’re pacing up and down your home or office – or pacing up and down the train station instead of standing directly on escalators, this underrated form of exercise is a hit.
It’s valid today like never before, and while it only takes a few minutes, it all adds up and provides moderate activity that keeps your body from slowing your metabolism down. It is this type of fitness that also makes you feel brighter and more alive as you age.
