We all know how important exercise is for our health and fitness. Study after study tells how working out will help us live a longer, healthier, and better life.
There's a secret combo though that will reap the most benefits for us. The combination is simple, but varies for each person.
It ultimately boils down to these two factors:
If you do not enjoy the style of workouts you participate in, you will not be consistent.
Even if you enjoy something, if you are in pain, that enjoyment will be sapped away quickly.
Find what feels good, both mentally and physically, and you will be setting yourself up for success. If you find yourself unmotivated then you need to keep trying different approaches until you find something you connect with.
This could be a certain type of class, the right workout buddy, or creating a home gym. It could be lifting weights, running, or doing yoga. We are each individuals. We each have unique bodies and personalities.
There is no one size fits all approach. Similar to diets, anything can work if you stick to it. Make it fun and don't force yourself to do something that causes pain. Once you find the answer then you are on your way to a healthier, longer, and better life.
