Ormond Beach Personal Trainer | 5 Ways To Stay Active

As a personal trainer in Ormond Beach, I know that everyone is busy these days. So if you feel like you don’t have time to exercise, you’re not alone. According to the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), less than two-thirds of adults in the United States get the recommended minimum amount of exercise which is according to ACSM guidelines 30-60 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity five times a week, or 20 Ormond Beach Fitnessminutes of vigorous activity three times per week. Unless you’re a part of the one-third of adults in Ormond Beach, Fl getting their recommended amount of daily exercise, here’s 5 ways to keep you active even on your busiest days

Ormond Beach Personal Trainer Secret 1-Break Up Your Exercise

Ormond Beach personal fitness trainingAn hour of exercise is an hour of exercise whether it’s done all at once or in 4 intervals of 15 minutes. According to ACSM, one continuous session and multiple shorter sessions (of at least 10 minutes) are both acceptable to accumulate desired amount of daily exercise. So if you’re pressed for time, our Ormond Beach personal trainers will tell you to break up your fitness workout into smaller increments.



Ormond Beach Personal Trainer Secret 2-Up the Intensity

Upping the intensity burns more calories in a shorter amount of time. According to a study released in the Journal of Physiology, 2.5 hours of sprint interval training produced similar biochemical muscle changes to 10.5 hours of endurance training and similar endurance performance benefits. This means the higher intensity exercise produced the same benefits in a substantially less time. This is why group personal training with our personal trainers in Ormond Beach is becoming so popular.  With just 30 to 45 minutes of your time, a good Ormond Beach personal trainer can put you through several circuits of dumbbell, resistance band, and bodyweight exercises.  With very little rest and lots of functional work in each circuit, your personal trainer will have your metabolism elevated for hours.


Ormond Beach Personal Trainer Secret 3-Commercial Time

After winding down from a long day, some of us watch a little TV. Generally, a half-hour TV show has about 8-10 minutes of total commercial time. Well, your personal trainer in Ormond Beach can't be with you all day but don’t be a couch potato---put your body to work and torch some calories during those commercials. Exercises like lunges, jumping jacks, planks, crunches, push-ups, squats, and burpees require no equipment and are perfect for those boring commercial breaks.


Ormond Beach Personal Trainer Secret 4-Do the Little Things

We all have little opportunities to get some exercise during our busy daily schedule. Although Daytona and Ormond Beach are pretty flat (no mountain climbing here!) there are still mny opportunities to take the stairs instead of the elevator.  Parking further out and walking more, and bringing in groceries one bag at a time are another couple of ways you can add activity to your day without having to make time.  And you can brag to your Ormond Beach personal trainer next time you see him!


Ormond Beach Personal Trainer Secret 5-Multitask

Who said you couldn’t burn calories while taking care of other daily chores? (I know I do!!) Household chores aren’t usually viewed as a mode of exercise, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use it as a means to do so. Dusting, vacuuming, taking out the trash, mowing the lawn, scrubbing floors, and other household activities are an excellent way to burn calories while tidying up.  And if you’re like me (I’ve got 2 little ones running around the house), you can always use a little more tidying up!


Being busy doesn’t mean you can’t be active. Our personal trainers in Ormond Beach want you to make exercise a part of your daily life.  So incorporate these 5 lifestyle tips into your busy day and you'll be working on your health and weight loss goals all day.
