Do you ever think about working out … know that you SHOULD be working out … but just can’t motivate or find the time or simply make it happen?
My greatest tip for you is to start small. Take baby steps. But just get started. TODAY.
You don’t always have to make exercise this big production where you have to get yourself ready and go to the gym and fight traffic and find parking … and then figure out what to do when you’re there and work hard and be uncomfortable … not to mention miss out on social time or family time or whatever else … and then drive home and spend time fighting traffic and finding parking … etc etc etc
Now don’t get me wrong. I OWN 2 personal training / boot camp studios! There can be a LOT of value in going somehere, getting focused, having a specific plan, having coaching and accountability … but what I’m saying is, if you are having trouble getting started, you can start at home, with minimal or zero equipment, with workouts that take maybe 15 or 20 minutes.
You are going to get yourself moving and making some progress and going in the right direction. And as your fitness improves just a little bit, you are going to get the snowball moving and will want to do more.
Try this workout to start, from the Ultimate Cardio – Core Kettlebell Bundle:
15 Minute At-Home Kettlebell + Bodyweight Workout
1 – plank – 2 x :30 holds; approx 15 seconds rest between sets
2 – KB swings – 4 x 15; approx 30 seconds rest between sets – “variety” (two hand, one hand, hand-to-hand – your choice)
3 – (circuit) 12 push ups + 12 inverted rows OR 8 1 arm KB rows per side + 10 walking lunges (per side) – 3 rounds, rest as little as possible
That workout is super basic … but, it hits all your major muscle groups, you get some core AND strength AND conditioning work, all at the same time … and it only takes you about 15 minutes to complete.
And the best part is, there are no excuses! You can get started with it today.
To your success! –
