It also keeps your bones healthy and strong.

You should firmly want to improve your health if you made it so far in your reading and I will guide you through some recommendations.

1-I believe the first thing to get out of your way is procrastination. This is a huge factor in getting anything done and the reasons why people make excuses. Over time, you’ll learn to develop a “workout habit” and it’ll become part of your lifestyle. If you get started or have not been working out for a long time, any negative factor could harm your motivation. I highly suggest keeping your goals written somewhere you can see them

Maybe in your room or in the kitchen, these are places you visit many times a day. This technique is actually well known and recommended by Forbes successful entrepreneurs. The longer you keep an idea in your mind, the bigger the desire to accomplish this idea gets (in the long term). Plus every time you walk by your written goal it reminds you to take action upon its completion.

2- Adopt an instant doer attitude. You should automatically start and finish your workout for that specific day, every time you think of it. The best time to do so is early in the morning. Indeed, You have plenty of energy and early workouts also make you more productive the entire day. It’s okay if you’re not a morning person but make sure to get it done. 

Let’s say you write on your goals board “I want to lose 5 pounds” and hang it on your kitchen wall. You wake up in the morning and while drinking your tea, you read it. After your breakfast, you decide to do it later. Chances are that you will not do it at all. Instead, you should immediately after or breakfast (or before if you prefer) get it out of your way since you’re thinking of it. 

I also recommend you to detail your goals when you write them. Instead of  “I want to lose 5 pounds”, it should be  “I want to lose 5 pounds in the next 2 months working out 5 times a week and eating healthier”. If you’re already using this technique, you will see a big difference when you become more specific about your goals.

3- Buy home exercising equipment. In cognitive psychology and decision theory,  loss aversion refers to people’s tendency to prefer avoiding losses to acquiring equivalent gains: it is better to not lose $5 than to find $5. People, when they buy something unconsciously, need to convince themselves that their purchase wasn’t a waste of money.

When you spend money on gym equipment, you are most likely to use them because your brain will encourage you to do so. Plus, if you’re leaving with your soulmate, you don’t want to argue about how you spent money on the useless fitness equipment. When you take the first step about a goal completion, it gives you the power to do the second step and so on. 

You shouldn’t either spend a crazy amount of money on your fitness equipment.

We don’t know how long the situation will last, so you must be money conscious. Aware of that, Phizy.Fitness has rapidly launched a few products loved by our customers worldwide to help you maintain or start your fitness training. I Suggest you get dumbbells since there are so many exercises they will be useful for. The ones we have are adjustable and can weigh up to 25kgs. It gives you much more flexibility and crazy saving them buying standard weights. You can also get elastic bands which are also useful in many exercise variations. Finally, I recommend you get a roller (for abs) and a jumping rope. You can find all those products in our store, by clicking on them.

 

4- Seek bigger problems.

critical thinking, problem solvingThat’s right, you’re not mistaken, you must love to have bigger problems. You’re probably thinking he must be out of his mind. Who would like to have problems anyways? Hang on, it’ll be clear in a second. If you know Grant Cardone, you probably heard him saying “commit first, figure out later”. Deals with problems as they come. As a matter of fact, what is a problem? It’s a situation that requires critical thinking in order to be solved. I see problems more like a growth opportunity than a handicap. Do you rather want to buy more weight because the ones you own became too light for you or do you prefer dealing with not be able to lift even a 5lbs weight?

The choice is yours but I hope you know what I am trying to say here. In our field which is healthcare and fitness, problems will come for sure but you’ll learn to love them. If your goal is to lose weight and when you do so, are forced to go clothes shopping, bet you’ll love it, wouldn’t you? 

 

5- Challenges yourself and be creative! If you follow everything mentioned above, you’ll become great I promise! Very quickly! Reasons why, you get enough sleep, enough time to monitor your diet. Plus your body picks up very quickly from your workouts since your body has a lower activity level, which requires less calories usage. Your performance will increase very fast.
