You have been working out for several weeks now, but you are not seeing the results you want. Why’s that? In Fitness Magazine, they ran an article about the dos and don’ts of getting fit. Even if you are just starting out or have been working out your entire life, there are things you are probably doing wrong that are not allowing you to get the results you want.

Fitness Magazine says no matter what, workout everyday even if it’s just a small amount of time, everything helps. Neporent recommends in Fitness Magazine “aiming for 30 minutes of cardio every day and strength training twice a week for two to three months, or until you feel that exercise has become an ingrained part of your daily routine.” Taking the steps instead of the elevator, taking your dog for a walk, or going for a jog or bike ride can be fun and rewarding without the struggle of feeling “obligated” to workout. Finding ways to make exercise fun will help you get what you need done and not a struggle.

Throughout the article, they give you tips on things to do and things that you may do while working out that you don’t notice you do that can effect your workout badly. All of the tips are recommended to benefit your weight loss journey to getting fit.

One thing that the article does is categorize the tips based on what level you may be at in your work out routine. Those categories are beginners, regular exercisers, and fitness fanatics. All of the tips are designed to improve the way you work out no matter how long you have been doing it. One tip for beginners is to stay loose because people tend to tense up because the desire to lose weight or lack of determination is making them feel forced into exercising. Fitness Magazine’s Tina Vindum, founder of Outdoor Action Fitness in, says “Relax the muscles you’re not working, and focus on the ones you are. You’ll have more energy and get better results.”

Being a fitness regular or fitness fanatic doesn’t mean you can get better. Fitness Magazine recommends tips to improving your exercise routines that will give you maximum results. One tip for regulars is to breathe better because it allows you to work more giving you more reps and a better workout. Despite the fact that you may have this exercise thing figured, there are a lot of things that experts can do to advance their techniques. One tips is to work out with someone slower than you because it allows to your body to regenerate and allows you to have fun.


All of these tips I found helpful, and I also noticed that I tend to do the same workouts rather than changing it up. With every “do this tip,” the article retorts with a “don’t do this.” For instances, fitness fanatics should do what they hate, but don’t be a slave to the numbers according to Fitness Magazine. Tracking is good to know where you are, but it can also take the fun out exercising.

This article is very informative and gives great tips on improving your exercise routines. Working out can be challenging with trying to figure out what works for you, but knowing the ins and outs of what id good and what is bad is the first step in getting into shape.

Fitness comes in different forms, but they main thing you need to know is that no matter what stage you are at just keep moving. It takes time for you to get where you want to be, so don’t give up because this is the only the beginning. Even if you have been working out for some time, there is always room for improvements, and you should always what to get better by pushing yourself to do more.
