CrossFit’s 6 Week Challenge

Long-term fitness goals are important for several reasons. They hold you accountable and encourage you to push through the temporary pain to come out on top. Setting short-term and realistic goals that are achievable is essential. By setting one goal at a time that is completely personal to you, you are more likely to achieve that goal. Don’t set a goal based on what you see someone else doing; it’s not productive.

The 3 Best Workouts to Lose Weight

When it comes to losing weight, working out isn’t enough to make it happen. There’s so much that goes into weight loss — and if you want to lose weight, then adopting healthy eating habits needs to be at the top of the list. In order to lose weight, you need to be in a calorie deficit, so you need to use up more calories in a day than you consume. Weight loss is complex and an extremely personal journey — and what works for one person might not for the next.

Weight Training

Weight training is a must when you’re trying to lose weight. It’s been shown that lifting weights increases your metabolic rate, so your body will burn more calories even when you’re not working out. By building more muscle mass, you have more muscle to eat through calories during the day.

Interval Training

Interval training is often the go-to method for weight loss. It’s a super-efficient workout which is ideal for busy schedules, helps you burn more fat, and doesn’t require any equipment. Research shows that HIIT training really encourages weight loss. Interval training increases your metabolism and can stimulate the production of human growth hormone (HGH) by up to 450%. HGH is responsible for increased caloric burn and can slow down the aging process, making you look younger inside and out.

In essence, boxing is another type of interval training; the only difference is that it makes you feel like a badass. This type of exercise is best in a class where you can get proper guidance from a professional, especially if you’re a beginner. Try to keep your rest periods between jabs and kicks short.
