Hello everyone. Today’s article is a guest post from Carlo who works for Davies Sports.
We are all fitness fanatics now, with a much greater awareness to keeping fit and healthy. Find out how to keep fit in your lunch break now.
In recent decades attitudes seem to have changed to a more positive outlook on physical health with more individuals seeking to take better care of their mind and body.
With many people working long hours, it can be extremely hard to squeeze in regular exercise and follow a consistent healthy diet. But a strong sense of well being involves finding the time to maintain health and fitness so that individuals look and feel great in their own skin.
A person’s health and fitness is strongly determined by the choice of sporting pursuits, what they eat, how they live and how they try to keep themselves fit.
People do not have to go to extreme levels of exercise to be fit. Every person has a type of exercise that works for them in sustaining a healthy lifestyle, regardless of age or physical ability.
It is important to try and remain physically fit as exercise can increase levels of energy that can contribute to an individual feeling healthier.
Having a particular level of fitness can make daily life much easier, as you will be able to work more effectively and efficiently, whilst looking good.
Exercise also prevents and delays heart disease and can reduce levels of stress. People often neglect the social benefits of exercise. One of the many benefits of such exercise is that often you meet new people and socialise with people of a similar level of experience and fitness as you.
The main reason many people participate in sport is to prevent obesity, which is more common now than ever before.
If you have a hectic lifestyle and are not quite sure how to fit in exercise in to your busy schedule, then why not use your lunch hour to top up your fitness levels?
It may seem slightly bizarre combing your lunch and fitness, but it is a fantastic way to make sure your body is not deprived of exercise as a result of a busy lifestyle. And it is also very possible to have an exercise session, have lunch, shower and get back to work within an hour. All you have to do is be organised and prepared and make sure your gym clothes are packed.
Intensity is crucial to improve and maintain fitness. A short but intense workout can lead to weight loss and leave your body still burning calories after the work out. For example, a 20-30 minute jog is ideal for a lunch break. Or if you are close by to a gym you could use specialist sports equipment such as kettle bells and fitness balls.
If you are at school and want to be on top performance for your netball or football team then use your lunch break to increase fitness and avoid trailing behind your team mates.
If it is not ‘cool’ to go running on your lunch break, then why not use playground equipment to exercise. There are digital skipping ropes that are fun whilst keeping fit at the same time. You could be the first of your peers to initiate the skipping trend.
There are so many ways to keep fit on your lunch hour. It is possible so get involved and enjoy the benefits.
