Here are 12 simple steps on how to improve your fitness:
1 – Work out in quick spurs
It may sound strange, but a new study has proved that a person who did a few session of 30-second sprint has reaped the same heart benefit of a person who has jogged for 40-60 minutes. If you want your heart to start racing, then you can jump the rope for three minutes or try sprinting to and from your mailbox a few times a day. Sprinting blocks sporadically is also an option for people who live in urban areas.
2- A fitter home for improved fitness
There are a few ways you can improve your fitness from your home by making some arrangement. For example, you can do curls when you heat dinner using your dumbbells set will flex your muscles. Or leave your mat next to bed so that you can do downward dog when you get up or when you go to sleep. You can try to hang a resistance band at bathroom doorknob and use it while you fill your tub. You can also try using a stability ball as your desk chair.
3- Make small changes to your lifestyle
Try to make some changes to your lifestyle. Even making these small changes can make a huge difference to your fitness level. Using stair instead of an escalator, running upstairs to grab your sweater is simple activities, but can improve your fitness.
4- Introduce a new plan to your evening
If your idea of ideal date is a dinner and a movie, try making it to dinner and dancing or any other activity that will keep you active
