When you’re thinking about the ways to get fit and fabulous for summer, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? The gym? The pool? Those $29.99 workout videos that every celebrity from the east coast to the west seems to have on the market right now? Whatever it happens to be, chances are good that it probably ISN’T a fitness e-book. But you’d be amazed at how effective a simple fitness e-book can be.
Why Do I Need to Work Out?
Let’s start with the basics-why we need the resources that fitness e-books have to offer. We live in a society where thin is in. But being as thin as Kate Moss or Winona Ryder, or as buff as Sylvester Stallone in the original Rambo, shouldn’t be your main incentive for trimming and toning up your body. Most of us are never going to be supermodel thin, or movie star buff, and you know what? That’s not a bad thing!
As a matter of fact, if you ever got a good look at what those poor people have to eat day in and day out you’d be incredibly grateful for that five pounds. It’s not pretty.
What you do need to worry about is staying healthy. Your body was made to function at optimal performance when you’re carrying little extra fat and your muscles are toned and healthy. If you’re 20 lbs. overweight or more your body probably isn’t able to do that. In fact, carrying a lot of extra weight can be extremely hazardous to your health! Obesity can lead to high blood pressure and diabetes, among other things, and while a good diet is important, it’s not going to be enough to keep you fighting fit. You’re going to need to exercise too.
That’s where a fitness e-book comes in.
What the Fitness E-book Can Do for You
Just about any e-book you’re going to download has three things going for it. It’s convenient. It offers you the opportunity to develop your own workout plan. And you can enjoy complete and total anonymity while you’re losing weight and getting fit.
After all, no one really wants to go to the gym when they look like they need to be there.
Unlike a workout video, which makes you repeat the same workout (or three) day after day, your fitness e-book lays out a series of strength training, balance and cardiovascular exercises from which you can develop your own exercise routine. It’s going to rely strongly on your ability to use your own self discipline to establish a workout schedule and stick to it. A good guideline is to put in at least 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise (running, jumping, swimming) interspersed with at least two days of strength training.
Your fitness e-book can help you establish and keep that schedule, and it won’t be long before you’re on your way to the non-Hollywood body you’ve always dreamed of.
