Ways to add fitness to your life

Are you looking for ways to add fitness to your life, but you don’t have time to go to the gym? What if I told you, that you can have really great results doing at-home exercise. What if I told you, that cardio exercise is not just jogging on a treadmill and at-home cardio workout will leave you sweaty but oh, so happy. Would you go for it?

The gym is all you need

I am one of those people, who think, that gym is all you need if you want to have a proper workout. And it doesn’t matter if it is a cardio workout or you are going to use weights…

Wait for a second…

To be precise, I used to be one of those people, who thought you need the gym to exercise and have visible results. Everything changed when I (unexpectedly) became preggo. Prior to that, I was using the gym regularly(ish) at least 1-2 times per week. Not too bad for someone who likes the comfort of her sofa (or bed) so much, she could spend a whole day with her favourite book and a cup of tea or coffee. To be honest, I got a little bit of extra motivation, when my gym changed location and moved next door to my workplace. I mean, I could simply go thereafter or before my shift, instead of finding excuses why I couldn’t exercise that day.

But once I found out me and my hubby is expecting, everything changed. For thirst a couple of months I was so constantly tired and all I wanted to do was sleep, which I did a lot. I could come home from work to have something to eat and go to bed at 7 pm and have a full night sleep. At that point, I decided to cancel my gym membership, because there was no energy left for workouts of any kind.

However, after my energy levels returned in a couple of months, I started to look for ways to bring exercise back into my life.

At-home workouts

It was an accident. I accidentally found cool #fitmom on Instagram and decided to start following her. You know, for daily motivation and other stuff. And that cool #fitmom was pregnant at that time. Moreover, she was actively exercising at home. Therefore, I decided, that I could follow her example and find” ways to add fitness to your life”.

Let me tell you something. There is so much information on the internet, you will not believe me.

However, how can you make sure, that those at-home workouts will actually work?

And if you are anything like me, you might ask yourself:

“How can I get motivated for my at-home workouts?”

Motivation

What motivates you to workout?

Do you want to lose weight?

Or maybe, your goal is to become stronger than you were yesterday.

Prior to finding at-home workout program, that was “IT” for me, I had this “believe“.

Believe, that gym will provide me with extra motivation… And, to be honest, when I was exercising next to really fit and athletic men and women, that gave me some sort of motivation. Unfortunately, the gym could not change my way of thinking about exercise itself. At the same time, I found myself thinking about going to the gym “when I feel it”… Hence, just 1-2 times per week and sometimes just using cardio machines (half-hearted).ways to add fitness to your life

As opposed to that, after I discovered my “IT” at-home workout plan my mindset changed dramatically. Finally, I accepted exercise as part of my healthier lifestyle, not as part of my punishment. I found an unbelievable amount of energy while working out. Simply because all that energy was already inside of me. How amazing is that?

Let me tell you about these simple ways to add fitness to your life!

BEACHBODY can show you easy ways to add fitness to your life

Let me introduce you to an awesome place of lots of at-home workouts to choose from. Let me introduce you to BEACHBODY.

What would you do, if you could have your personal fitness trainer?

Would you change your life, if your personal nutritionist made your daily meal plan?

Do you want to look in the mirror and be happy with what you see?

I know, I do. And I work for it every day because fitness begins in your kitchen.

And the best part is, BEACHBODY will provide you with virtual fitness and nutrition guru.

The most amazing thing about BEACHBODY is – CHOICE.

You choose the fitness plan that works for you. If you are not ready for high-intensity workouts, choose a fitness “dance” program. Or, you can choose the fitness program according to workout length. For example, my favourite program “21 Day Fix” lasts only (you guessed it!) 21 days and workouts are only 30 min per day! How great is that?! You can choose to change your life in 30 min! Alternatively, you can choose to do nothing and continue to be miserable. With this in mind, what will you CHOSE?

 

21 Day Fix.

If you are wondering if BEACHBODY workouts will help you achieve your fitness goals, just watch this video about 21 Day Fix success stories.

21 Day Fix is one amazing fitness and nutrition plan. You don’t have to count calories, you don’t have to do hours of cardio to lose weight. 30 min per day with smart and simple to follow portion control system, is what will help you to reach your goal. And the most amazing is your personal motivator/fitness trainer, Autumn Calabrese. She will do all the workouts with you. At the same time, she will help you to push yourself to your limits and beyond!

At-home workouts and using your knowledge

Find your motivation within your heart. I mean, who could motivate you better than…well… YOU? Simply because you know yourself better, you feel what works for you and what is not. There is no point in having a personal trainer and skipping workouts. Just as there is no point in learning about good nutritious food and not using this knowledge in your advantage.

Decide what is best for you.

Decide where you want to see yourself in next month or even year.

You should decide who you want to be: someone who is working towards his/her goals, or someone, who is afraid of one small challenge.

Because all that makes you can be replaced by something great, if only you decide to be GREAT.

Don’t be afraid to try to find new ways to add fitness to your life. Be afraid to waste your time feeling disappointed in yourself. Because life is too short and you should fill your days with happiness. For example, every time after my workout I feel proud of myself. And it is because I know, that I did something I thought I could not do. Simply because I pushed my body by pushing my mind. And because of that, I feel great.

Do you want to feel great too?

  1. I was really happy to find your article, because I really hate going to a gym!

    But of course I realise the value of exercise, so to be able to get the same level of fitness by working at home is a really great idea.

    I do like the sound of the Beachbody 21 days fitness plan, and I am definitely going to investigate it more, because we all need motivation, yes?

    Thank you so much for telling us about Beachbody.

    Chrissie 🙂

    1. I am happy I could help you, Chrissie!

  2. As an overweight diabetic newly diagnosed losing weight is one of the biggest things at the top of my list that needs to be done.  The fact of the matter is Im not a big fan of heading out to the gym on a consistent basis.Im not going to lie thinking about being able to work at home and lose weight is a great option for me.Thank you for taking the time to put all this information together and for sharing it with people like myself.Dale

    1. Dave, I am so happy, I could help! 

  3. Personally I would love to work out at home without  the Hussle of running to the gym every morning or evening the idea of having my personal trainer is even better while you think about then great nutrientionist that will make sure I balance my work out while doing so I am eating healthy food that is well thought off.

  4. Thank you for sharing this amazing platform. It is great to have a good program that will fit your lifestyle and you can also do at the comfort of your home. My work schedule hour is crazy by the time I get out of work it is either closed or not even opened yet. I am sure those coaches will make you get out of your couch and start working out lol The diet that usually work out for me is the one that they slowly change my mindset and motivate me. Will give this 14 day free trial a try. Looks promising 🙂 I always wanted to be toner. I will have a beach body by this summer!

    1. I am sure you will enjoy Beachbody workouts as much as I am! 🙂

  5. Hello Xenia,

    I do thing like you used to. Sometimes I look at working out as my punishment for not disciplined enough with my diet. It’s really difficult for me to visit the gym regularly because most times I’m tired after work.

    Beachbody on demand seems to be a very relevant project I’ll like to partake in. How much does it cost after the first free days? I don’t want to get hooked just to find out I can’t afford it.

    Expecting your feedback

    1. Hi, Louis.

      Personally, I would recommend to go for 12 months Shakeology (protein sheik filled with super food) challenge pack! It will cost you only $160, but you will get :

      Annual membership30-Day supply of ShakeologyPortion fix container system 

      And the best part is…this package is 30 days money back guarantee! 

      If you are interested in workout programs only, you can choose between 3 months ($39), 6 months ($59) an 12 months ($99) membership plans.

      I bought that “Shakeology pack” myself, but after 1 month cancelled my Shakeology subscription and now I use just Beachbody on Demand.
