Fitness Tips for 2016

DECIDE YOUR FITNESS GOALS
It is very important to decide your fitness goals. It is a big part of how you stay motivated to achieve your end result.
I believe it is a good idea to make short-term goals, goals that you know you can achieve within 8-12 weeks, and long-term goals, goals that you can achieve but may take your body a longer time. For example:
Short- term goal: Achieving a minimum three times of training every week or improving your conditioning on the treadmill.
Long- term goal: Achieving a high amount of weight loss or improving your body strength.
REMEMBER: Everyone is different and fitness goals should be 100% specific to you.
Nutrition is an important part of helping you achieve your fitness goals. More than what most of us believe! Here are three of my top tips:
Always try to eat breakfast. It can help kick-start your body and your energy levels. Not having breakfast may affect your body’s energy level during the day.
STAY HYDRATED. Water helps energize muscles and relieves fatigue, keeps skin looking healthy, helps with your concentration levels, boosts your immune system and relieves headaches.
Try to increase your intake of fruit and vegetables in your meals.
