Fitness Programs For Women Who Hate Exercise

If you want to be fitter but have trouble sticking to any exercise program for more than a couple days, our fitness programs for women who hate exercise are virtually guaranteed to help you out!

I'll tell you the secret right away: make your workout part of your regular day, and don't try to do it all at once.

First Thing

Starting out your day with some exercise is a great idea. 5 or 10 minutes of stretching, yoga or marching on the spot will get your circulation moving, help you wake up and set you off with a positive attitude into your day.

Walking

Put more walking into your fitness programs for women routine. If you drive to work, park further from your office. If you take the bus or subway, walk to the next stop before you get on, and pace up and down the street while you wait at the stop. If you usually eat lunch at your desk, take it to the park.

Carry your office shoes or keep them under your desk so that you can walk in sneakers. When you walk, walk fast. Remember this is a workout. Provided you have no health problems you should be aiming to increase your heart rate and breathing while you walk, for a cardio boost.

Buy a pedometer and see how far you walk in the average day. Is it different on a weekday than a weekend? What's the most walking that you do? Adjust your routine so that you do this much every day.

This doesn't have to mean forcing yourself to walk twice around your block on a rainy Saturday afternoon. Going to the mall will work just as well, especially if you start with a fast circuit without stopping to shop. You can go back later to buy.

Take The Stairs.

I probably don't need to tell you to take the stairs instead of the elevator. Still, most people don't do it. Will it help if I tell you that stairs are great for toning the butt and thighs?

Maybe your office is on the 25th floor and it would be lunchtime before you arrived at your desk. OK, walk up the first 3 flights and take the elevator from there.

You may ask - why not take the elevator to the 22nd and then walk? Two reasons: first, when you arrive on the 3rd floor if you are feeling good you can walk another flight. Second, if there's someone from your company in the elevator with you, you won't get out on the 22nd floor. It would look weird.

If you have stairs in your home, office or apartment block, use every excuse to walk up them. Go see your colleague on the next floor instead of calling. Don't pile things at the bottom of the stairs to take up later - take them one at a time, now!

You can also use stairs as a form of home gym equipment. If you have appropriate footwear, run up them or do stepping exercises on the bottom step.

Contract Your Abs

Any time you are standing, contract your abs. Tighten, hold for 3 breaths, relax, repeat. You can do this any time you are waiting in line for anything.

You can also contract the pelvic floor muscles regularly through the day while sitting. This will tone you internally.

Stand

We burn more calories when standing than we do sitting, and the act of standing up from a seated position works the thigh muscles and back. So get up at every opportunity. For example, stand up when the phone rings and take the call on your feet. If you're on a cellphone, walk around while you talk.

Time

Some of these options are going to take more time than doing it the unhealthy way at first. However, after a week or two you will find you have tons more energy. You will be more productive, which means you can do more in less time. You will not need to flop on the couch or take naps.

So don't be concerned about the time that it takes to incorporate some of our fitness programs for women into your life. The added energy will more than compensate.
