No Excuses - Do Anywhere Exercise Tips

Ariane Hundt

Every fitness trainer knows that the most successful exercisers are those who don‘t wait to have a full hour available for a workout in the gym. See Ariane’s tips for a fun and effective workout - no matter where you are.

Use Your Body:

The best workout is one that requires your own body weight. Perform a routine of 20 each: burpees, push ups, squats, triceps dips (on a bench, bed or chair), lunges, and sit-ups, and you will have worked your entire body.

Use What You Have:

Instead of lugging around heavy equipment for a workout, make use of your environment. Walls are great for push-ups and wall squats. Benches and office chairs are great for triceps dips and step-ups. The stairs at work are perfect for great legwork. Do calf raises while waiting for your bus or train, or during a conference call.

Fit Travel:

Just because you‘re not in your familiar environment, doesn‘t mean your entire routine has to go out the window. Explore a new city by running or biking. Or, connect with a workout group online, for example meetup.com.

Online Workouts:

Try some of the fantastic online platforms that allow you to work out in front of your computer anywhere. Most health and fitness websites and YouTube channels offer a slew of workout options that require nothing but your body. Some examples include, Booyafitness.com, Vidergize.com, self.com and menshealth.com.

Five ‘n Five Fitness:

Create your own five-minute fitness routine. Choose five exercises (pick ones you don‘t like as these will work you the hardest) and perform each for one minute. Do these twice a day, and before you know it, you have worked every single muscle in just ten minutes.

Tips and Tricks for Healthy Eating

Elizabeth Fassberg

Yes, the kitchen can be an integral part of any workout plan! Cooking your own food is far healthier than buying processed meals or snacks, which can be laden with additives like salt, sugars, and artificial ingredients. Fresh and frozen vegetables, canned legumes, whole grains, lean meat, and fish all provide sustenance, fiber, and nutrients as nature intended.

1. Plan Ahead:

Writing up a weekly menu to post on the refrigerator or in an app and shopping ahead of time makes meal prep a snap.

2. Measure It:

Portion control is important, but it’s tricky to know exactly what the correct amount is, so train your eye by measuring your food for a couple of days, then you’ll find it easier to eat just the right amount.

3. Vegetables Rule:

They’re full of vitamins, minerals, and fiber, and low in calories and fat. Filling half the dinner plate with a variety of fresh or frozen vegetables can eliminate the need for that expensive multivitamin.

4. Keep It Real:

If trying to lose weight, steer clear of so-called ‘diet food’. Fat free or packaged foods may seem like an ideal way to stay within the desired calorie range, but they are far from satisfying and may lead to binge eating later.

5. Take Control:

Restaurant and take out food maybe easy and taste good, but you have no idea what chefs are putting into the food; cheap ingredients, extra salt and fat. When you prepare your own food you know exactly what’s in your meal!
