A new year, a new you! Follow these five easy tips to get the most out of your workouts and to make your fitness dreams a reality in 2018.
#1) Take more steps, every day: If you don’t enjoy the gym, get more exercise from activities you enjoy – swimming, hiking, playing sports, skiing, snowshoeing, biking. Focus on adding physical activity into your daily routine and try to move once every 20-60 minutes. Take the stairs, walk all or part of the way to work, park a few blocks farther away when you are driving somewhere, get on and off at a farther subway stop than you otherwise would, or take your dog on longer walks. If you like gadgets use a tracking device and aim for a minimum of 10,000 steps per day.
