1. Set a goal
The first easy way to create a perfect fitness routine is to set a goal. Find out, what do you want to accomplish with your new fitness routine? It can be losing weight, toning up, or even recovering from an injury, or maybe something else.
2. Get the right gear
For your new fitness routine, of course, you’ll need the right gear. Just put on the right shoes, sports bra, pants or shorts, and a comfortable top, and you’re ready! Focus your attention on the shoes, they must be appropriate for your fitness, fit well, and be comfortable. If you don’t know anything about choosing gear, talk to a pro at any fitness shop.
3. Start with cardio exercises
First of all, let’s focuses on your heart health. Start with cardio exercises! You need to get 30 to 40 minute sessions of cardio four days per week. Cardio can include everything from swimming, running to dancing, everything that gets your heart beating, and keeps it beating for the entire 30 to 40 minutes. While you’re exercising, do not sing or chat lightly.
4. Add weights
If you want to work all of your muscle groups including your arms, legs, and core, you should add some weights. Work out with weights 30 to 40 minutes a session for 3 or 4 sessions per week. Don’t worry, you won’t get big, bulgy muscles, you’ll just get toned and strong.
5. Add calisthenics
You should also get in a few sessions of calisthenics per week, for about 30 minutes. It can be jumping rope, crunches, lunges, push-ups. Calisthenics are great for keeping toned.
6. Add weight-bearing exercise
The next step is to add weight-bearing exercise to your new fitness routine, which can also double as your cardio. This exercise should be done 2 or 3 times per week for 30 or 40 minutes, and includes anything you do standing up, like running, jogging, or using the stair-climber.
7. Add non-weight-bearing exercises
You also need to add 2 or 3 sessions of 30 or 40 minutes of non-weight-bearing exercise, which can also double as your cardio. Non-weight-bearing exercises include everything that is done sitting down like rowing or biking. Just because it changes your weight resistance, swimming is considered a non-weight-bearing exercise too.
8. Add yoga
If you want flexibility, tone, balance, better sleep, and stress relief, you should add yoga to a new fitness routine two or three times per week for a half-hour each session. Combine yoga with calisthenics for an all-over workout, it leaves you winded, a little sore, and a lot happy.
9. Add some fun to your fitness routine!
Do you know what’s missing from your new fitness routine? Of course, fun! Add something fun and interesting; it can be a Zumba or spinning class, or joining a soccer team. Do it with your friends! Whatever you choose, make it something you would consider fun, and try to do it in once a week.
