Are you concerned about fitness? If you’re not, you should be. Now is the time to develop the healthy habits that will keep you from spreading out in all kinds of undesirable directions during middle age. Don’t think it can’t happen to you. Look around! If you see someone who is trim and fit looking, you’re looking at someone with good habits. Not to say they don’t have any bad habits, but for sure, they have some good ones.
A focus on fitness doesn’t mean you have to shell out big bucks and join a gym. What you need is a more flexible solution than a gym. Something that can give you expert instruction, and I’m not talking about hard to figure out pictures, but rather support, privacy, 24-hour, all-weather availability and best of all, free. That’s what you’ll find at my favorite fitness Web site, www.shapefit.com.
I can’t even begin to tell you all this site offers for free. My favorites are the exercise guides with flash photography guides on how to do hundreds of exercises so your workout never gets boring. And there are hundreds of short videos on how to correctly do exercises as well.
This site even has a social network called FitTracker with over 90,000 members. Have trouble making friends at the gym, log in and chat with total strangers in complete safety in between sets of reps.
Girls, you don’t need a $500 a year gym membership, you don’t need a $700 treadmill. You don’t need good weather and you don’t even need a set of dumbbells or an exercise video. This zero investment, zero equipment necessary help on the Web cancels out any reason that’s keeping you from focusing on fitness. If you don’t have any fitness routine at present, do this: Go to the Web site and just browse. Just being there might be the first step to set you on the way to a healthier life.
