Did you know your personality has a lot to do with what exercise routine works best for you? So determining your personality type will help you achieve your goals.
Maybe you are very social, laid back, or maybe keen on getting big bangs for your buck. But whats the best fitness routine for you? How do you find it?
The first thing to look at is what recharges you outside of work. Is it a glass of wine while taking a hot bath? Or going out with friends for a big meal?
In other words are you an extrovert or an introvert? An introvert may do well in a spin or yoga class. While the extrovert will do better in a group class of say boot camp, cross fit or treadmill running.
You need to find what setting works best for you. The only way to know is giving it a try, maybe a trial membership at a gym or a visit to many different places like studios, or outdoor boot camps.
You need to like the place as well as the exercise routine, you need to be comfortable. The happier you are with the place and routine the more motivated you will be to continue going.
Once you have found your fitness personality and a routine that best fits this and your needs, you will be well on the way to a healthier you.
Because beginning an exercise routine is stressful on your body, you need to let your body adapt. Start your routine small and build it up over time until you reach your desired fitness needs.
Working out for 30 minutes two or three time a week at the beginning for about 6 weeks is a good place to start. Then you can increase it when you feel comfortable.
In the end just remember exercise should be fun and should make you feel good as well as look good. Then before you know it you will have an exercise routine that fits your personality and your schedule.
