6 Things That Fit People Do Differently
If you would interview a group of extremely fit people, you would see they all have these six things in common:
1. They Exercise
If you’re a person who absolutely dreads exercising, then you will never be fit. Exercising and eating right are two necessary components people use to get and stay fit. They are inseparable like a hand and glove, black and white, etc.
So if what you are doing in the gym or at home does not excite you, then it is time to try other forms of exercising until you find something that you look forward to doing.
2. They Eat Healthily
If you talk to extremely fit people about how they train, you’ll find they listen to their body as far as knowing what to eat.
Over time, they have figured out what makes them feel good, what keeps them full between meals and what kinds of food gives them the energy they need to make it through hard workouts.
One thing you’ll find they do not talk about is the latest diet fad - at least not seriously. Why?
Because they already know what works for them and why take a chance on changing to something untried – at least untried on their body.
3. They Prioritize Their Health
Fit people put their diet and exercising ahead of everything else. If that means getting up 30 minutes earlier to get in a HIIT workout before going to work, then so be it.
If it means eating the healthy lunch you brought from home while your colleagues eat cafeteria food, oh well – it is their loss.
4. They Get Enough Sleep
Sleep is one of the most underrated parts of fitness. Getting enough sleep is paramount to getting extremely fit.
While you are sleeping, your body is busy repairing itself. By getting at least 7-8 hours of sleep each night, you’ll be healthier, happier and fitter.
5. They Associate With Likeminded People
You won’t see extremely fit people chumming around with friends that are constantly getting fast food, eating donuts and sitting on their couch watching TV.
But you will find them with the crowd that is into healthy cooking or going on organized bike rides or run.
6. They Are Always Active
Extremely fit people are always finding ways to stay active.
While they plan exercise into their daily routine, they also opt for other activities that burn calories and use muscles, such as walking or taking the stairs.
Practice these six things and you too can start down the road to being an extremely fit person. What do you have to lose?
