The New Year is a new start for many people across the globe. The tradition of the New Year’s resolution is a popular way to set a goal to achieve over the next twelve months to improve your life. One of the most popular resolutions which many people attempt to achieve in the New Year is to get fit and healthy. With the ongoing obesity epidemic in the UK, getting fit and healthy is a big priority for a lot of people across the country. With more and more gyms appearing across the country, there’s never been a better time to start getting fit.
It’s important that you find a form of exercise that you enjoy. Many people swear by jogging as a means to get fit but some may find the act of running monotonous and boring. It’s worth trying out a number of different sports until you find something that suits you. From five-a-side football to cycling, there is a sport for everyone to enjoy. Going to the gym is a popular way to get fit due to the specialist equipment and focused atmosphere which lends itself to training hard and staying motivated.
Exercise is only one half of the battle why trying to get fit. Your diet plays a major role in how much you shape up or slim down with different circumstances require a different approach. If you want to build muscle and gain size, a high protein diet containing white fish and chicken is always a good start. Slimming down involves managing your calories and being careful about what you eat. After the indulgence of Christmas and New Year there isn’t a better time to eat healthily and get active. Find something you enjoy doing and get out there and do it. Don’t let your New Year resolution fall by the wayside like so many others do each year.
