Secrets of the Super-Fit
How to take your routine to the next level.
There are people who are fit, and then there are people who are super-fit. You may or may not notice a fit person when you’re out and about, but you always notice a super-fit person. They don’t usually have bulging ripped muscles; instead, they’re always super toned. They walk like they could leap a building in heels if need be without a hassle. Their clothes hang on them just so. Why? Because super-fit people work out in a very specific way. Here’s how to get into this elite group:
Commit: Don’t let anything get between you and your workouts. Being super-fit (or super anything, for that matter) means making your goal a priority 5-6 days a week. And while you’re working out, don’t let any other thoughts intrude. Focus on your goals. Three of those workouts need to be 90 minutes each. They can be a yoga or Pilates class; 45 minutes of strength training followed by 45 minutes of cardio; or a half hour of weight training followed by an hour of cardio. Or take an hour class followed by 30 minutes of cardio.
Seek out the next level: Super-fit people are always shooting for the next level. They set goals, hirer trainers, seek out advice online, and generally invest a little time in keeping themselves going. This has a big payoff: You will get to the next level and you will look and feel great because of it.
