If you have been to a gym lately, you might have noticed an increase in the number of people that have taken on the adventure that is fitness. Many of these people have done so because of a little thing called New Year's resolutions. Eating right and getting in shape is one of the top resolutions made every year, and also one of the least followed after a month. But is it really necessary to have to attend the gym 4 days a week in order to get in better shape and live a healthier life?
Many people think that spending 1-2 hours a day 4-5 days a week in the gym is the only way to lose that holiday weight and get your life back on track. That is a myth. Dropping pounds can be as simple as cutting back on calories, walking instead of driving places you can, turning off the t.v. a little more and turning on the treadmill. Working out 3 times a week for 45 minutes can be enough to lose those pounds that have been nagging you for years. Mixing cardio and strength training while making sure your heart rate is up is all it takes to get the healthy life you have been wanting.
