Americans who were polled gave an interesting portrait of how they exercise: most do it alone, and running is the prefered activity. The good news is most reported that they exercised. But there’s always room for improvement!
If you like to run, get motivated. Find other runners on social media with a quick search, and become a group to cheer each other on. You still have the privacy most people say they prefer, but you also get the gym buddy. Plus, research suggests that the more you’re exposed to social pressure, the more likely you’ll be to keep it up.
It’s no wonder running is so popular, it’s easy to do anytime, anywhere, and you can go completely simple with just a pair of tennis shoes and some sweats, or do it up with fancy cutting edge toe-shoes and breathable anti-sweat sweats. You can also use your phone to add bells and whistles to your run. There are pedometers, timers, calorie counters, and great apps for tracking your progress.
While most people opt against going to a gym to workout, there are benefits to doing so. Besides increased options for activities, being in an environment with other motivated exercisers will spur you on.
The other thing is—just know that you can do it! Exercise recommendations are actually really simple. Just try to walk vigorously (if you don’t like running) 15-30 minutes a day.
If you’re working out to lose weight, you can help yourself with a natural weight loss supplement like Slim NRG. It has no stimulants or other nasty ingredients, so you don’t have to worry.
