It’s that time of the year... swimsuit season is just a few months away. We are looking to shed a few pounds and trying to get in shape. Who has the time, or the desire, to think about new, more healthful foods, a new exercise routine, new exercise equipment, a gym membership?
Add this to the consideration list. I was listening to a fitness instructor who said you should not do the same work-out day after day. You need to “surprise” your muscles.
Maybe all of you know this already, but my Comcast On-Demand channels now include dozens of fitness and sports training activities. On Saturday, bored with my Stairmaster and threatened by the guy who implied the almost-daily Stairmaster routine won’t surprise my body enough to help fitness, I discovered (OK, my husband showed me) the on-demand options. I was intrigued by Navy Seals training modules and guess what – they are seven to eight minutes long! Perfect. Did the stretching module and felt proud. Now I am a Navy Seals training regular.
No longer confined to Gilad on Fit TV, I love being able to access a variety of brief fitness programs when I want them, usually at 6:30 in the morning.
Any quick and easy health or wellness enablers you know of?
