Get Moving: EAT CLEANER LIVING TIP – #11 // 2010

January 18, 2010

#11:  Get Moving – We’re always running…to meetings, dinners, after our kids and after dreams.  But is effective exercise a real part of your weekly routine? 

Fitness is important to an Eat Cleaner lifestyle and maximizing it is important to seeing results, combining cardio and resistance training.  Many times we set goals for ourselves that are not realistic and when we don’t meet those goals in the expected time, we tend to throw our hands in the air.  Despair not!  There are all kinds of great fitness formats that help you get svelte and healthy that are actually FUN.   Turbo Kick Box (TKB to afficianados) and R.I.P.P.E.D. are some of our favorites of our and help get your blood pumping to great music with results you can measure in less than an hour.  Milo Levell is one of the most gifted hip hop instructors out there and takes you back with old school funk fitness.  Home based DVDs are available for some of them so you can do them in the comfort of your own home.   Or check out our friend Alex’s blog, a certified trainer and endurance athlete, for fitness tips like the burpee (no, not a post-baby belch).  

How about challenging yourself to  a 5k walk or even a half marathon run?  Or completing 30 really good push-ups?   The point is to push yourself further than you might have before and to attempt to test yourself and set a goal, one that is more reasonable and within reach. And the best part of such challenges is that you can dare those around you to do them with you.  It’s a means to bring friends and family along with you on that journey.  You never know what may happen and you may find that you push your fitness farther than every before, no matter what your age is.
