Here are a few get-fit tips that can get you results without costing you a fortune.
If you can’t splurge on classes . . . DO A WORKOUT DVD. You can get a solid workout in your own living room for the price of a private yoga lesson or a few dance classes. (And, ahem, we know where you can find a few good DVDs.) The trick is to stay motivated when your comfy couch is beckoning from a few feet away. These tricks can help:
- Treat your workout time like an actual class. “Schedule time in your day to work out, and stick with it,” says JJ Virgin, a Certified Nutrition Specialist and Certified Health and Fitness Instructor.
- Even if you don’t feel like pushing yourself to the limit, at least push yourself to start. “Back in the day, Beachbody’s motto was ‘just Push Play,'” says Steve Edwards, Head of Fitness and Nutrition Development at Beachbody®. “Once you’re actually doing the workout, most people figure they might as well put some effort into it.”
- Invite a friend. “A workout buddy provides accountability and makes it more fun and interesting,”
