The first fitness routine is the HIIT also known as High Intensity Interval Training. This would be the perfect workout for people on the go.

Boxing will bolster up your speed, strength and sharpness while Pilates will improve your versatility and muscle mass. With this combination, you will be able to burn those unwanted calories, tone your muscles and of course, boost your stamina. One particular feature of this routine is that you will be wearing weighted gloves throughout the entire session plus a heart pumping music.
Military fitness is the third workout trend for the year 2014. If you are getting tired of working out on that boring treadmill then you will find this particular training truly exciting. This outdoor exercise program is not only fun but serious at the same time. Expert and Ex-military trainers will be helping you achieve the fitness level that you desire. Furthermore, you will be training and burning those calories along with other fitness enthusiasts who also aim to become physically fit this year.
These three are only a few of the greatest physical workouts for this year. Choose one and get started.
January is the first month of the year and is considered the cruelest and the most savage month for people to become fit. According to recent studies, there are many people who intend to abandon their routine workout in two weeks’ time after they began their New Year’s resolution. Some who are determined to do their physical exercises will stop in four months’ times and around 2% who doesn’t want to undergo such activities will start and making themselves fit.
Many people do not realize the importance of becoming fit. It is involves the physiological, psychological, and genetic aspects of one’s life. An example of genetic factor occurs with a twin. They have been observed that they used the same patterns; they have the will to do an exercise, and are motivated—all of which they might have inherited from their parents. Psychological because personality plays a biggest role, some people who are extrovert are more focused than the introvert one. This is according to the reviews done by a British Journal, Sports Medicine.
Some quit from their workout due to some reasons. People quite don’t know when or where to do their exercise according to Ryan Rhodes, a professor and an expert on behavioral medicine in the University of Victoria, British Columbia.
Dr. Rhodes suggested that people should strengthen their goal to become fit; they need a strong mindset so that their body gets the proper exercise to become fit and healthy. This is in order to attain their ideal body weight and to have a pleasing personality or appearance. He emphasized that intentions should turn to behavior, not just plan but to take actions. Finding the right exercise designed for you so you keep the fire on. Attending a class in Zumba is one example.
A study published in the Preventive Medicine last year using rewards as a motivator. Rewards are good using limited and reasonable value. One hundred seventeen freshmen college students are the respondents; they will be paid ten dollars in a week if they will be able to comply to visit their school gym regularly. But it failed because only sixty three percent met the agreed goals.
This clearly shows that lack of interest is not motivated by giving cash.
While the other half of the population is trying to maintain a lean body figure, a lot of people are still on their way on shedding those extra pounds off. Weight loss is a major concern especially in countries like the U.S. where people are fondly adapted to fast food. Over 20 million Americans eat fast food daily and most of these people go once or twice to a preferred fast food restaurant. This is one of the major factors affecting the average weight of the citizens and is growing in an alarming rate.
On the other hand, as weight problems incline, methods of keeping it low are also emerging like mushrooms. The market today is seemingly filled with various products involving weight loss. Most probably you have heard of a product or two using all-natural substances. These products come in the form of herbal supplements to be taken in with meals regularly. It would gradually or perhaps hasten the process of losing weight. As a matter of fact, many of these products have remarkable effects.
Well, if you’re not into taking in supplements or if the mere thought of taking them in troubles you, you could always do an all-natural process we all know as exercise. Doing workouts can be done in many steps. There are easy methods and there are tough ones. On the other hand, when it comes to exercise, it always requires determination and the willingness to continue. Well, for starters, you could start by walking. The mere 30-minute walk a day and just breaking a little sweat could do so much for your body. It’s not too intense but it helps. Later on you could progress with other more taxing techniques.
Lastly, controlling your diet is actually reducing the weight increase of your body. This method though is the toughest that you would encounter. As a matter of fact, it could even be harder than doing workouts as reducing food intake has a bigger mental burden compared to physical activities. Though the process is grueling it can yield better effects compared to taking in supplements or doing taxing workouts.
