4 Ways to Make Fit Happen Each Day

A crazy thing happens when you load a room with endorphins, ambition, and fitness buffs: you look majorly motivated. That’s how we felt after an annual event where we unite the best in the fitness biz to talk exercise, food, and more. Here are some interesting and useful highlights from the day.

Make Time for Fitness

Just think what’s going to give you the most bang for your exercise buck. “Work out smarter, not longer,” says celebrity trainer Holly Rilinger, who recommends resistance training with a short rest in between sets, even if you only have 20 minutes. We suggest these strengths-building workouts.

Forget the Haters

Oh, you love marathons, but your friend might think distance running is a waste of time? Then, he doesn’t need to run one. Whether it’s CrossFit, yoga, or weight lifting, the best form of exercise is the one you stick with. “There are a million ways to work out—find something that has passion behind it,” says Rilinger.

Don’t Overdo It

While a certain degree of muscle soreness is normal the day after an intense workout, it shouldn’t prevent you from sticking to your normal routine. “If you can’t walk up the stairs, it might be too much,” says Marci Goolsby, MD, an assistant attending physician at the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) in the Women’s Sports Medicine Center in New York City. “The important thing is to stay mobile.”

Do What You Love

“If you want to do something, you do a good job,” says Carla Hall, co-host of ABC’s The Chew and owner of Petite Cookies. This applies to your workouts, your career, and your cooking: find something you love, go all-in, and do it right.
