From gyms and social classes to sports, there are so many ways to keep fit and choosing one that works for you can seem impossible when you’re first starting out. If you’re keen to get fit and healthy but aren’t sure where to start, the following tips should help to give you a better idea of the best fitness routine for you.

Use your initial motivation for inspiration

Try basing your exercise regime around your motivation for wanting to get fit in the first place. Are you aiming to rid yourself of work-related anxiety or general stress? Do you want a slimmer figure in time for summer or for your wedding? If any of these apply to you, ideas for a fitness routine will start to fall into place since specific exercises can be attributed to things like getting a bikini figure or limiting stress etc.

If you don’t have a specific reason for wanting to start a fitness regime other than to stay healthy and agile, it may be a good idea to get a personal trainer. In just a handful of sessions, you may be able to figure out your fitness niche and begin to form a regular routine based upon what you enjoyed most in training.

Do what you can with your resources

Not everyone will be lucky enough to have a gym or fitness centre on their doorstep so if this is the case, do what you can to keep fit with the amenities that are available to you. Arrange to go jogging socially with a friend once or twice a week, take up indoor exercises such as yoga or Pilates or maybe consider taking up an active hobby that you can keep to on your own throughout the week such as cycling or running on a morning and evening.

As aforementioned, a hobby can be an effective way to keep to a regular exercise routine as it promotes wellbeing by releasing tensions and endorphins on a regular basis, motivating you to go further with your fitness.

An enjoyable and active hobby besides swimming or cross-country running is cycling since it can provide a full body workout in a relaxed setting and save you considerable money on gym memberships too. Quality bike manufacturers such as Fatbirds stock a wide range of brand bikes to get any fit phobic started and give them the inspiration to stick to it.

Staying Fit, Warm, and Active Tips for Women
Running is one the greatest ways to both lose weight and feel great. For most women, though, maintaining their fashion sense while out on a jog is important. They want to look good while feeling good. Here’s a list of tips provided by SweatVac Performace Wear that will help you assemble a trendy running wardrobe. 

Shoes

Finding a pair of running shoes that fit right and are comfortable is one of the most important elements in any woman’s running kits. Instead of saving a few dollars shopping online, pay the in-store premium by visiting a specialty running shoes shop. These stores have great specialists on staff that will assist you in finding a pair of shoes that fit your running style, offer a cushiony ride, and fall within your budget.

Hats

The perfect running hat for the fashionable woman is one that has an adjustable (one size fits all) loop or snap back-strap, so the hat can easily be maneuvered around a ponytail or bun. Make sure, too, that the hat is made of high visibility fabric, and has hits of 3M scotchlite fabric that will reflect off of car headlights. Many companies manufacture hats that have trendy colors – neon pink, neon green, and bright yellow are the most popular.

Comfort Tanks

The key to a good comfort tank is in the fabric. specifically, find a tank that is made of a lightweight, loose-fitting fabric like polyester interspersed with heavy swatches of mesh and vent panels to keep moisture from soaking your shirt. Another necessity in a comfortable tank top is an internal bra that will keep things modest, encapsulated, and sweat-free during your run. Choose a tank with 3M reflective panels to give your outfit a sleeker, safer, and aggressive look.

Running Tees

Finding the perfect fashionable running tee is a lot like looking for the ideal tank top. Look for light, moisture-wicking fabrics, preferably made of polyester and mesh. Another important characteristic of a comfortable tee are flat seams, which will eliminate rubiing and chaffing. 

Many top-of-the-line tees on the market today have an internal loop system that allows you to tuck your headphone cords inside your shirt so that they do not get accidentally caught up in your jogging motion. Nearly every woman’s activewear brand also includes reflective strips on their shirts. Seek these out because they will give you a bit of safety with your style.

Running in the Winter

Depending on your region, finding trendy, comfortable, and warm clothes for wintertime running is imperative. Winter running, with its below freezing temperatures, brisk winds, and snow-covered running paths, is a completely different experience than running on a sun-soaked August afternoon.

Essential wintery clothing items for any trendy lady include a pair of skin-tight, moisture-wicking leggings that will keep you warm and the sweat level low at the same time. Find a pair that fits snugly and does not ride up your ankles or down your waist. If you can, purchase a pair that is made of thermal fabric. thermal fabric will give you some added warmth on those super-cold February mornings. 

You should also consider investing in a winter hat (or a pair of athletic earmuffs). Running in winter is all about maintaining a comfortable level of warmth, and you lose more heat from your head while exercising than any other part of your body. A hat that is properly insulated goes a long way in keeping you warm.
