Are you trying to get fit?

Don’t fret it. With today’s applications and websites, you don’t even have to leave home in order to lose weight.

In fact, there are a number of programs on YouTube and other sites dedicated to getting you off the couch and on your feet, helping you tone up and slim down in no time at all.

Of course, when most people experience that initial kick of motivation that makes them want to lose weight, they want to see results fast.

But, starting a “fad” diet or other quick-fix is no way to go about it. Instead, you need to start looking at both your diet and physical fitness.

If you want to see results in 4 weeks, it’s going to take two things: eating better and working out more.

Unfortunately, these two things are often easier said than done.

But, it is by no means impossible. In fact, with the right mindset, you will be absolutely unstoppable for the next month and beyond as you enter your fitness journey.

Here are the steps to losing weight and toning up in just 4 weeks, all from the comfort of your own home.

1) Find a Program

The first step is to find a fitness program that will work for you.

Think about the activities and moves it involves, the instructor and whether or not you like them, and the degree of intensity.

You need to be realistic about your current physical abilities.

2) Change Your Diet

The next step is to look at your diet.

You need to cut calories in order to create a caloric deficit, which is the only way to lose weight. You also need to think about what you’re eating.

You need to eat healthier in order to give your body what it needs to build muscle and have enough energy to complete your program.

3) Track Your Progress

If needed, take an at-home conditioning test to see where you stand.

See how long you can run or jog before tiring, and see how many pushups you’re capable of doing.

Knowing these things not only allows you to track your progress over time, it also gives you a better idea of where you’re starting from.

This will help you avoid over-doing it and injuring yourself before you’ve hardly even started.

Take measurements and weigh yourself so you know where you stand.

5 Tips to Maximize Your Workouts From Home

If you workout from home, you probably already know how tough it can be to get up and get moving some days.

There are so many things going on that demand your attention, it can definitely be overwhelming and oh-so-easy to put off.

But, it doesn’t need to be so hard to get started or so hard to see results.

Here are some ways you can make your at-home gym experience even better.

1) Mix it up

The days of workout DVDs are pretty much behind us.

These days, you don’t have to put the same routine on loop.

Between YouTube and fitness apps, you can always find new moves, new routines, and new ways to challenge yourself.

Mix things up so you don’t get bored.

Changes will also help you avoid plateaus.

2) Try bodyweight moves

You don’t need a lot of expensive or fancy workout equipment in order to see results from home.

While you can definitely choose to invest in some, bodyweight moves will allow you to achieve a super effective workout without any equipment at all.

They can work every single muscle group in your body and it won’t cost you anything but effort.

3) Call in a coach

Sometimes, you need the input of a professional in order to get to the next level.

Luckily, you have many options.

Whether you decide to get a local personal trainer or go on the internet to find a professional, getting that input can definitely help you keep moving forward and smashing your goals.

They can answer questions about diet, routine, and other essential components of your success.

4) Take a rest day

Always take a rest day each week to give your body time to recharge and recover.

This will help you avoid injury and burnout in the long-term.

But, don’t treat your rest day as a chance to pig-out or laze around. Doing so will actually make it harder to get back in the swing of things.

Instead of not doing anything, use your rest day as a chance to do light physical activity.

5) Always stretch

Stretching out both before and after any physical activity is a must to avoid injury that could set you back.

Never underestimate the power of your warmup and cool down.

Even when you’re in a hurry, treat your muscles right.

How to Track and Measure Your Fitness

It’s so easy to get discouraged when you’re trying to get healthier, and the main reason is that weight loss isn’t linear.

Usually, you’ll lose a good deal of weight in your first few weeks but then, as you begin to edge closer to your next milestone, you’ll find the weight loss slowing down.

You might even see the scale come to a screeching halt as you struggle to move further forward.

Unfortunately, this is an issue that most people will run into, but you shouldn’t let it be the end of your fitness journey.

There are many different reasons for it, and your success all comes down to how you track your progress throughout your weight loss.

1) Know what the scale is telling you

The scale can fluctuate by as much as 10 pounds due to things beyond your control, like water weight and muscle gain.

Your at-home scale can also be inaccurate by one or more pounds.

Not to mention that your clothes and shoes will add to your weight and so many other factors that can make you feel stuck.

Once the scale stops showing results, sometimes it’s best to ditch it.

2) Take measurements

A much more accurate way to track your progress overtime is to take measurements of your body using a sewing tape measure.

This will allow you to get accurate measurements of your natural waist, hips, and thighs along with anything else you want to measure–like your neck, arms, or calves. Write these numbers down.

In a few weeks, take new ones and compare.

Oftentimes, these measurements will continue shrinking even when the scale isn’t showing positive results.

But, keep in mind that bloating and eating can cause measurements (especially at your waist) to grow.

Always measure first thing in the morning to minimize such fluctuations.

3) Save pictures

Many people don’t want to take before photos because they dread seeing themselves.

But, simply looking in the mirror won’t allow you to see progress until you have made a lot of it.

After all, you see yourself everyday so it’s hard to spot gradual changes.

Take before pictures and, down the line, you’ll be very happy you did when you get to share an incredible before-after transformation!
