Achieving fine shape and a well toned body is one of those desires which we all dream of, because all of us want to look young and stay healthy forever. This can be outrageously easy for some, but in most of the cases it is ridiculously tough. It all depends on your resolution and dedication towards wanting a healthy lifestyle. All it takes is working out religiously and other basic things that you need to implement in your regular lifestyle. MegaModelz compiles few tips that may lead you to achieve this goal:
Every path starts with a single step. The best way is to dive in ‘right now’ and never look back.
Set pragmatic and concrete goals
Simply stating that you want to get in shape is not effective. Be specific and work at it. For example, I want to lose 5 kgs of fat by 15th December – set such goals.
Get on with essentials
Proper training shoes and feel-good jogging costume are must-have’s. It’s vital to be comfortable while you’re working out. Wear supportive jogging shoes and easy-on-body attire.
Log your workouts
Each and every workout session must be logged. Keep all of your fitness logs in a folder and make your very own winner diary. This can be motivating too.
Get 7-9 hours of sound sleep every night. Also, rest your muscles by not working out at least 2 days each week.
Good nutrition means half battle won
No workout regime is complete without a healthy diet. Especially if your goal is to lose weight, you must watch your diet. Eating small healthy meals throughout the day compliments your fitness routine.
Burn fat naturally
Remember, slow and steady wins the race! Refrain thermogenic style pills and potions that claim rapid fat and/or weight loss. They not only make you dehydrated and speed up your heart rate (which can be unsafe); they also add to losing lean muscle mass, therefore lowering your metabolism and your body’s natural capacity to burn fat.
Abstain extreme workouts
Although being pumped about getting fit is terrific, you are doing yourself an injustice by excessive training and stunting your muscle which could eventually burn you out. Be realistic with your schedule and devote about 3-5 days of about 1 hour weight training and ½ hour cardio for optimal results.
Sign up for a marathon, find a workout buddy or train with a personal instructor - do whatever it takes to remain committed. If you falter, let go off the guilt and get back on your routine ASAP.
Role Model Decoded! Donna Katherine Masih talks about her approach…
“For any model, it is essential to be fit and well toned. Apart from the personal benefits, models have to carry and portray designer clothes, products and the brand image on the shoulders. Additionally, when it comes to beauty and fitness, models are looked up as role models by everyone. Hence, it is a sense of professional responsibility for me.
In modelling, the better we take care of our bodies, the more honest we are being to our work. I work out 4-5 times a week and focus on freestyle exercise and some aerobic activities like running, jogging or cycling. Philosophically, there is no real secret to fitness. I think it’s about your entire lifestyle in a holistic sense by being regular and maintaining a schedule on continuous basics - like eating quality food, being physically active, sleeping 7-8 hours each night, being happy internally and making right choices in life. Also, ensure that at no point you take your good genes for granted.
Your health is based on what you eat, so making healthy and nutritious diet choices is indispensable for being fit and healthy. Working out is only one part of the picture that is incomplete without good diet – affirming both, gives quick result. All you need to do is, work hard and give your best. There is no other way.”
