Are you tired of feeling as though you are too out of shape to play sports or do fun outdoor activities? Sometimes we frame our fitness issues as purely about weight loss, but it is not solely about losing weight. Yes, if you lose weight, you will be in a better position. But what you also need to know is that it is not JUST about losing weight. What you need to understand is that you also have to exercise in a more productive way if you want to get fitter. And we can tell you how to do that right now.

The first thing that you need to assess is your goals. What do you want to achieve? Are you just hoping to lose some weight and get to a point where you can go on walks and hikes without feeling out of breath? Or do you have aspirations to play sports regularly with your friends, or with a work group? If you are thinking about the latter, you will need to train with a little more intensity. But the premise is not too different. You are pushing your body to new levels as you want to get to a point where you can exercise and feel in the groove.

Whether you are going to engage in playing sports or regular outdoor activities, a good mix of weight training and cardio activities is the way to go. With cardio, you are always going to want to push yourself a decent amount. Do not overdo it, but always work yourself to a point where you are fatigued. If you keep walking on a treadmill for two hours and you are not tired, are you even exerting yourself? Increase the speed, or do the work at an incline so it is harder!
