Three Things I Wish I Knew Before I Started Working Out

  1. Being Healthy is a Lifestyle

Working out and eating healthy are great ways to help live a healthy lifestyle. Healthy habits over long periods of time are what really help show and keep progress. Short diets and workout plans may give you quick results, but as soon as you stop the results will fade away. It is very tempting to look for the quick fix now, but you most likely will regret in the long run. It is very important to find a fitness lifestyle that you can maintain and consistently see improvements from. Continue reading

Workout Shoes NOT Working Out

Hey everyone it’s your favorite Fitness Supervisor Ryan checking in! When I’m working in the Williams center there is one thing that is guaranteed to make me cringe and I know we’re all thinking the same thing. That’s right… IMPROPER FOOTWEAR, there’s nothing worse in my book. Something as simple as choosing the right shoe for the activity you’re participating in can make or break a workout. Some might be reading this thinking “Why should we listen to you?” To put your mind at ease I have multiple years of experience recommending and selling footwear to fitness enthusiasts much like 
yourself. In an effort to let you choose which shoe you like the most I will not be discussing individual brands. I will be discussing the best shoe for each type of workout.

Workouts For Binge Watchers

We all have a favorite TV shows that we just have to watch every week, or we get in the mood to binge watch a whole season of the show we just love. Well now you do not have to feel guilty about taking time out of your day to watch a TV show!

There is a simple solution to make watching TV one of the most productive parts of your day. All you have to do is workout while you watch! I encourage you to write a workout routine that goes along with your show to keep you motivated and focused on working out throughout the whole episode.

It is a great idea to write your own workout because then it is specific to you and the show you watch. You can make your workout more challenging to really get yourself to sweat, or you can simply just make sure you are keeping your body moving and not just sitting for long periods of time. This also gives you the freedom to change up the exercises you use in your workout as often as you would like. The goal is to create a fun workout you can do while still enjoying your favorite TV show.

Here are a few tips on how to set up a workout that flows with your show.

  1. Do an exercise during the opening credits
  2. Assign an action to a common phrase said on the show
  3. Hold a position when characters are at specific location
  4. Do a move every time a charter does a particular action
  5. Complete an exercise whenever a common event or incident happens

If you do not want to make your own workout, then you can always look to see if there is already a workout for your favorite show out there. You can also take a look at what workout routines others have come up with for a specific show to give you ideas.

Here are a few examples:

The Bachelor Workout

The Big Bang Theory   

The Office
