Spending Time In The Gym Can Improve Your Endurance

To maintain or enhance endurance can get more difficult as we age. The key is to push yourself in a variety of areas regardless of your age so that it becomes a habit, though. Developing good habits can serve you well at work, school home and at your Lima OH health club.

So, how do you put yourself in a position to set goals and pursue them-building stamina and building endurance?

Make a list. Consider the things you’d like to accomplish create a “to do” list out of them. It may be returning to school, getting yourself to the gym multiple days each week, spending time with friends regularly or getting that promotion but get it down on paper. When we write something down we are committing energy, time and most importantly ourselves, to beginning this process. And research shows that when we write a goal down we are much more likely to pursue it and accomplish it.

Get a friend on board. Whether it be a relative, spouse or friend tell someone about your goals and invite them to help you along the process. You may get a workout buddy commitment, an avid cheerleader or someone to help you talk through your plans but whoever is there to encourage you along the way, keep them up to date and celebrate those accomplishments-both big and small.

Nutrition. Monitor the foods you are eating because it’s absolutely true that you are what you eat. Eating heavily processed foods and high fat foods do little for you nutritionally. But foods that are good nutritionally, like fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean protein foods will nourish and energize you.

Include your family and friends in your lifestyle changes and new goals. They will appreciate that you are trying to live longer and healthier so you can enjoy them longer but may also want to get on board with your changes. It’s important to care for yourself more consistently as you get older. Aging can be difficult but you can make it easier and more adventurous by trying new things and working towards goals that will make and keep you healthy.
