Did you know that there are 1,440 minutes in each day? The average American spends 180 of those minutes watching television. What do you do with your minutes every day? How much time do you spend exercising each day?
Did you know that devoting just 30 minutes a day to exercise gives you years of benefits to your health? Investing as little as 30 minutes a day in exercise, by combining resistance training and aerobic activities, can help you live longer and healthier. Exercise helps to:
• Stimulate feelings of euphoria.
• Reduce depression.
• Stall loss of muscle.
• Preserve the metabolism of youth.
Regardless of your age, weight or athletic ability, resistance training should make up part of your fitness program. Resistance exercises help to strengthen your body so that you will have an easier time with everyday movement and especially helps during aerobic activities. You see, these two types of exercise go hand in hand.
Resistance training brings out the beauty in the female body. Many women fear resistance training especially with weights. They are afraid they will develop manly looking muscles. This is not true. The exercises that I will introduce to you are designed to accentuate your curves and tighten your core for the long lean look of a dancer’s body.
After 90 days of following my program, you’ll begin to see the results–like a smaller waist, firmer legs, thinner ankles, and a more attractive derriere.
My 30 Minutes to a New You exercise program provides all of the essential elements of a lasting, effective physical fitness regimen. Combining resistance training with aerobic activities helps to develop strength and improve cardiovascular endurance.
You’ll find exercises for the upper body, lower body and a total body workout. Each exercise has different intensities so you can take it to the next level when you’re ready to move up.
From seventeen to seventy, slim to full-figured, newbie to seasoned athlete, my program can work for you. I’ll show you how—when you take the 90-day challenge to Empower Beauty®.
My exercise program is simple and easy-to-follow. Best of all, it can be done in as little as 30 minutes a day–and just 3 days a week! That’s why it’s called 30 Minutes to a New You. Spend just 30 minutes a day, every day and you will be hooked!
The rest of the week you just set aside 30 minutes a day for play! On these “play days” you can choose any aerobic activity you like, such as walking, bicycling, swimming or skating, playing tennis, golf or any sport that you enjoy.
When I was a kid, I enjoyed playing outdoors until it got dark and my mother would call us in for dinner. I’ll bet you had a time when you enjoyed some physical activity, playing sports in school, riding your bike with friends or just jogging or walking around the track. Most kids do enjoy activities where they can be engaged in action of some sort.
It’s a shame that with our busy schedules many women give up this play time. Are you one of those women? If you are, I challenge you to bring back the fun days of your childhood and learn to play again. Find your fun activity and get moving.
If you are already active are just looking to jump back into something, consider learning to play tennis. This fast-paced game is played with a racket and a tennis ball. It’s a very social game and will work your body to burn up to 750 calories in an hour of play.
There are lots of fun sports or activities that you can do. If you enjoy walking with a buddy, just head out every day and walk for 30 minutes. Then challenge yourself to 30 more. You’ll begin to cover more ground as you begin to walk further in 30 minutes than you did when you began the program. If you walk on your play days, consider changing your route and time of day, occasionally.
Not only is this safer, by not having predictable habits, but it will give you something new to look at and help to keep your walks from getting boring. You can even change up your time by exercising in the morning some weeks and in the afternoons on others.
My Fitness4Her 30 Minutes to a New You exercise program fits into any schedule and won’t interfere in your daily life, whether you’re a student, a stay-at-home mom, or an overworked career woman. 30 minutes is such a small amount of time to give up for all that you will gain.
Staying active has many health benefits. Daily exercise makes your heart stronger, gives you more energy and combined with a healthy diet, helps you lose weight and keep it off. You may even be able to delay or eliminate the threat of illnesses like diabetes and osteoporosis.
Building and strengthening your muscles will take the stress off of your joints. This will give you a better range of movement and help to protect you from injury.
Regular exercise is essential to good health. Improved flexibility, stronger muscles, better circulation and a healthier heart are just some of the great benefits.
So if you never want to worry about a lack of energy, illnesses directly related to obesity, or a weakening heart resulting from a sedentary lifestyle…
If you’re ready to look really hot in that sexy outfit you’ve been longing to wear…
If you’re looking for a way to lose weight and get in shape…
If you need a new challenge to keep you on the winning edge…
Then follow me as I lead you through my 30 Minutes to a New You exercise program.
Pssst…C’mon, it’s going to bring out the best in you…just 30 minutes a day, that’s all it takes.
