Fitness Practices for Everyday

Kevin Cleary

We all know that everyday health & fitness practices are crucial to your health and well-being. As your partner in wellness, Health Products For You would like to help you navigate the fitness landscape!

Our overall health and fitness are contingent upon our everyday behaviors. Proper lifestyle habits can go a long way to keeping us healthy and fit. This is more than just staying away from unhealthy food or not being a couch potato but requires an everyday approach. 

A Complete Lifestyle Approach

Fads such as diets, juice cleanses, and miracle exercise equipment may work for short periods, but to truly achieve health and fitness, a lifestyle change is more effective.

Who hasn’t lost weight on a diet only to regain weight (or more) after dieting? Also, whether it’s a New Year’s resolution to get into shape or good intentions, often we start exercising/eating better daily and then watch our workouts get further apart, fast food reenters our diet and the best-laid plans fall by the wayside! When you start your new fitness practices remember to:

  • Stay hydrated when exercising
  • Rest between exercises
  • Stretch before exertion and adopt the proper technique
  • Eat healthily
  • Avoid processed foods

The Mayo Clinic suggests five exercise elements for good health and fitness that include aerobic fitness, strength training, core exercises, balance training, and flexibility/stretching. Pair that with a healthy diet and you are well on your way to everyday fitness.

Once you commit to lifestyle changes, finding the right aids to help can increase your success. Remember, you have to crawl before you can walk - let alone run. Five great items, available at HPFY to aid your fitness path include:
