Why spend an hour working out when you could accomplish the same thing (and more!) in only 20 minutes?

Try circuit training!

Alan Smith
  1. Workout with a friend. Working out with someone not only pushes you harder but makes any workout, no matter how torturous, more tolerable.
  2. Do activities that you enjoy! Do a Zumba class if you enjoy it. While lifting is important, you don’t have to lift every day, which leaves plenty of time to do the activities you love! Combine an activity that you love with a couple of essential, but maybe not as fun lifting days, and your overall program will be something you enjoy.
  3. Add music to your workouts. Create a playlist for your workouts.

With low intensity aerobic exercises, your heart and other energy systems have to work a little harder, without being overly stressed, to handle the extra fuel and oxygen delivery demands. Low intensity aerobic exercise also creates specific biochemical signals that produce a number of health and fitness benefits including:

Sometimes you feel like you have too much work to step away. Sometimes you have a trillion things that you could put before working out. Sometimes you would prefer to just go straight home after such a long day of work.

But working out can be just what you need to relieve all the stress!

For one, working out boosts your production of endorphins, which are the brain’s “feel-good neurotransmitters.” While most people are familiar with a “runner’s high,” you can get the same feeling from doing any physical activity that you enjoy!

One of the most important things to develop when trying to achieve any goal is accountability. Not only holding yourself accountable but also having other people to hold you to your goal.

Creating a calendar breaking down your goals day-by-day and week-by-week can also be helpful, especially if you hang it in a visible place. For example: Try hanging your diet calendar on your refrigerator. Any time you go to the refrigerator you will be reminded of your goals and be less likely to chose a bad food. That calendar will help you hold yourself accountable.

The Arc Trainer got its name from its patented stride technology, which never places the user’s toe behind the knee. This Reverse Arc motion places less stress on the knee joint.

The Arc Trainer is a low-impact cardio machine, which allows for optimal postural alignment during movement because the arm and leg on the same side of the body move together.
