We’re halfway through 2018, which means it’s time to raise the question, how are your new year's fitness resolutions coming along? If your results aren’t where you want them to be, the staff at your Hyland Village apartments is here to help. In addition to having an onsite fitness center, we also provide residents with a free yoga studio and Fitness-on-Demand. This service allows residents to take virtual fitness classes right here in the community!
With so many fitness-related amenities to choose from, it’s easy to convince yourself to head down to the gym and workout. The only hard part is figuring out how to workout, and how often you should be doing it. We’ve got some advice on the matter, and we’re thrilled to be sharing it with you today!
Without further delay, let’s dive right into the list of workout tips. When you’re done reading through this week’s post, please be sure to share the link to this page with your friends and neighbors at your community of apartments near Hyland Village!
Try Body Weight Workouts
A lot of people don’t start working out because they’re worried about getting hurt. It’s a valid reason, especially because we all know someone who hurt themselves while lifting weights. If you’re worried about pulling straining, or tearing a muscle, try doing body weight workouts instead! You’re far less likely to get hurt while doing push ups, sit ups and dips than you are using free weights or machines. Body weight workouts are great because they work small muscles and main muscle groups, helping your body stay fully supported.
Think of exercise as a need
It would be nice if we all wanted to workout all the time, but that’s rarely the case. Instead of trying to convince yourself that you want to workout, try thinking of exercise as a need, like water. If you can do this, you’ll likely never skip a workout again. In a lot of ways, exercise is a need, because with it we get cranky, tire more easily, and lose out on sleep. Exercise affects pretty much everything else in your life, and once you realize that, you’ll be far more likely to commit to working out.
Go Easy on the Weights
Here’s a secret: lifting heavy weights right away isn’t going to help you see results faster. Instead, it will probably cause you to get hurt, meaning you won’t see any results because you can’t workout. Start with lighter weights, and don’t move up until you’re 100% sure you can handle it. Working out isn’t a sprint — it’s important to develop the routine of going every day before you try lifting heavy weights.
