There are so many options for fitness, and ways to "do" fitness, you can almost think yourself right out of getting anything done! Let's take a look at some general types of fitness activities, what works best together, and how to come up with a sustainable plan.
We spoke to Jason Boudrie, Wellness Director for OrthoCarolina and Director of the OrthoCarolina Wellness Center, to get his three top tips for figuring out the fitness puzzle.
1. Figure Out Your Goal
Weight training is critical for building muscle, burning body fat, and supporting bone health. Yoga is great for flexibility, core strength, and finding inner calm. And cardio helps to burn calories and build endurance.
2. Look At Your Schedule
If you have a fairly flexible schedule, you can work in strength training, some cardio, and yoga for flexibility all in one session or split throughout the day. If not, structure your week so that you incorporate all three components: (1) fitness/cross-training, (2) cardio, and (3) yoga. Then do each 1-2 days a week.
