Habits are powerful aspect of life that either make us, or break us. Habits can transform our lives, and influence our decision making from what to wear and what to eat for today. In the matter as important as our fitness, if we are able to instill the right habits, we can achieve our fitness goals and reach optimum wellness.
Here, we look at five habits that can help you get fit and keep at it.
1) Fall … fall in love!
Getting started in a fitness program is a big decision, but committing to that decision and being consistent in working out is the ongoing challenge. When the initial motivation dwindles, the gym seems further away and the weights seem heavier than ever. But passion can help sustain your motivation, so you have to find workout routines that you love to do, that challenges you and gives you variety.

2) Start Small but Aim for the Sky.
The thing about fitness goals is everyone wants to achieve them fast. With one big goal in mind, it can get overwhelming and frustrating. Try breaking down the goal into smaller, actionable steps. To achieve 100 body crunches, try starting with 20 and slowly working the number up to 50. Add more with each week, as you feel your abdominal muscles respond, and celebrate when you reach your goal!
Belly fat is a notoriously stubborn fat to lose and an unsightly bulge around your middle area can only add to your body consciousness. Take a look at Epi Life Coach’s Body Sculpting program. It is a high impact program designed to sculpt specific upper and lower body areas, including your midriff. It is packed with instructional videos on how to do proper burpees, crunches and lunges. With over 30 videos, you will have amazing workout routines to choose from.
3) Eat well and eat right.
This may seem like the easiest habit to have, but with today’s hectic lifestyle, it is not easy to eat right. Eating right means consuming the right types of food for your body, food that nourishes you and provides wellness benefits to your body. Functional foods are named as such because they provide an additional functional ingredient, usually probiotics, prebiotics, plant stenol or fortified with vitamins and minerals. Know your body and eat the right kinds of food that will double up your fitness results.
4) Have Good Taste in Music.
Your fitness workout may be repetitive, but it need not be boring. Tune into to good music and improve your workout experience. Working out to music can increase your performance, divert your attention from bodily aches, gets you in the zone and level up your fitness efforts.
Choose energetic soundtracks with an upbeat tempo to maintain your workout motivation and make your workout more enjoyable. Epi Life Coach’s fitness programs are set to energetic, lively soundtracks so you maintain your efforts without you noticing it.
After your workout, power down with some relaxing soundtracks to realign your equilibrium, gently stretch your core muscles and relax the body. Check out our store of spa and lounge albums that can accompany your cool down exercises.
5) Understand your body.
It is easy to get distracted by the gradual improvements to your body, or if your fitness results have reached a plateau. Every body is unique, and every physical body will respond differently to different physical exercises. If your body is not responding well to your regular fitness, it could be that this fitness is not the optimum exercise for you now. Understand your epigenetics to know which workout will give you the optimum results so you can achieve peak performance.
With your unique lifestyle and environment, you need a tailored fitness program to help you maintain your fitness levels. Pay attention to your body, listen your epigenetic cues and use these little habits to get the most out of your workouts.
