In my gym, you often see the summer months absolutely packed with guys and girls working hard. But to get a decent physically fit summer body you need to work at it for at least a few months. This, of course, depends on your current fitness level and body weight.
There is no doubt that a summer body makes all the difference, not only in the looks you get whilst being out but also in your own self confidence.
Sure, there will be people who say that looks dont matter, and what matters is on the inside. This is definitely true… to an extent. What other people feel and say about you effects your self confidence and that, in turn, can effect how you feel on the inside. So it is a vicious circle.
Keeping fit isn’t hard as many people believe. It consists of two things, eating healthy and exercising regularly.
The eating part, I would say is the hardest. It takes all my will power not to stop at MacDonald’s or not grabbing a chocolate bar at the petrol station. But trust me when I say it gets easier with time.
The exercising is relatively easy, in comparison. Sure, when you are at the gym or on the road sweating it and working, it feels like torture but remember, its over in a short space of time. Also, you get a very nice boost of endorphin after a good cardio session and it feels great!
Working out on a cross trainer is probably one of the best cardio exercises you can do. I actually have a one in my home and its great.
The cross trainer is ideal as it gives you a full body work out with minimal impact.
Add this training into your daily lifestyle as well as a low carb, high protein diet and you will be well on your way to a leaner, fitter you!
