Q: Do I have to jog or run for aerobic activity
in order to “burn fat” and “get fit?”
A: NO!! Cross training is always the best
approach for the general public. Biking, walking,
and the elliptical machine are terrific options. Alternating
between these activities helps avoid injuries and also
encourages the long-term, sustained commitment critical
for losing weight. Individuals frequently become
focused on a single exercise regimen which may result in
overuse injuries (for example tendonitis and shin-splints).
Cross-training not only helps to prevent such injuries,
but also ensures that the body continues responding to “weight
loss” and “cardiovascular” improvements. The
key is to mix it up—you will feel better, stay
motivated, and get in shape !!!!!!!!
Q: What is the best time of
day to exercise?
A: The best time of day to workout is in the morning.
Early workouts help you burn more fat by stimulating your
metabolism to work harder, and sustain an increased rate
throughout the day. People who exercise in the morning
are also more consistent, because there is less chance
of something getting in the way of your workout.
GET UP, GET GOING, AND DON'T MISS A TRAINING SESSION!!
a trainer can also help with both consistency and motivation. Consider
having a trainer come to your home or establish a
schedule to workout with friends at a specific time every
week. Teamwork really makes a difference!
