3 Ways to Get Super Fit
By Genevieve Cunningham
Getting fit is a challenge. It requires dedication and willpower and plenty of patience. But while improving your health and getting fit is hard, taking the leap to super fit is even more difficult. Can you even do it? If you're looking to take your fitness to the next level, take a look at these three tips for getting super fit this year.
You Need to Lift
Anyone who is super fit is definitely lifting weights. Why? Because lifting weights burns more calories, sculpts more muscle, and burns off more fat than almost any other exercise. While hand held weights will be better than nothing, they generally will not take you from fit to super fit. You might need a gym or some other heavy weights to lift on a regular basis. Just make sure that you're using proper form and that you're asking for help when you need it so that you can avoid injury and keep working out until you finally reach your goals.
You Need to Restrict Your Diet
Super fit people are not eating junk all day long. Those who have gone past healthy and into the super fit category have a deeper understanding of nutrition. They probably don't restrict their calories much, but they definitely restrict the foods that they eat. You'll need plenty of protein, lots and lots of vegetables, and you'll very rarely splurge on any comfort foods. While this might feel like a challenge, getting super fit is always a challenge. If you need help with this task, speak with a personal trainer or certified nutritionist to help you get started.
You’ll Need Serious Motivation
Those who work their bodies into the super fit category have mad motivation. And while external motivation can be helpful, these people generally thrive on intrinsic motivation. They find something within themselves that pushes them forward and keeps them going. This can be incredibly difficult. You'll have to dig deep in order to find something that keeps you working toward your goals. But this is something that only you can do. Find what works for you, keep it at the front of your mind, and keep working until your ultimate fitness goals have been met.
You don't have to be super fit. All we really need is good health. But if you want to take your body to the next level, you can definitely do it. You'll need serious dedication, lots of self-discipline, and mounds of patience. But if you can do this, then you can slowly chip away at your goals until you're feeling super fit and better than ever.
