First, plan to always exercise in a manner that suits you best. No one will spend real effort on something which they dislike. It’s important that you enjoy the exercises your fitness program dictates. You should determine if socializing while you exercise is important to you. Even if your formal exercise program is for three times a week, if you enjoy it you’ll want to keep in shape even on your off days.
Secondly, once you have found your preferred exercise routine take a hard look at your schedule. It is very easy to commit to doing the exercise, but harder to follow through. If you work normal hours, then the most opportune time for you to exercise will be the evening time. The general consensus is that many people have increased stamina and strength in the late afternoon and early evening. Watching television or movies is one way to assist your indoor workouts. Adding music to outdoor workouts can assist them.
Finally, have what you need nearby. The needed shoes,equipment and clothes should be kept together in the same easily accessible location. If you do this then you allow the principle of least resistance to assist you. Your follow through will be greatly enhanced if you keep things easily accessible and close.
