Here are a few quick tips to help you stick with it, even though sometimes it can be hard for to maintain a daily exercise regimen.
1) Set a daily alarm or daily reminder on your phone to encourage you to exercise, make it encouraging and positive. Remember, this is something you want to do!
2) Set the reminder for a time when you usually don’t have anything pressing to do. Such as after you come home from work or right when you wake up or go to bed.
3) Remember, you can split your daily exercise to two 15 minute sessions. IT can sometimes be easier to find 15 minutes than it to find 30, so perhaps set two alarms during the day.
Investing into a set of free weights for your household can help you a lot. You can work at the start or end of your day if you don’t have time to go to the gym. Free weights around the household can also give you more motivation to workout to your true potential because you don’t have a bunch of strangers staring at you.

Before plunging right in the water and starting to swim, spend some time ducking your body, head included, out and in of the water. Breathe in while you’re on the surface and breathe out while you are under. This gives you time to acclimatize to the water and your swimming will enjoy the benefits.
Ideally, your workouts should follow the same order every time: first, work with dumbbells, which works smaller muscles. Next, switch to barbells. Finally, move to the free-weight machines. You will have progressively engaged all the muscle groups in your body and are therefore more likely to see results in all sizes of muscles.
Being fidgety is not always a bad thing. Studies have proven that people who fidget and move around tend to be skinnier then those who are able to sit still for long periods of time. This is because movement and fidgeting will burn calories, and help keep off the unwanted pounds.
Don’t exercise on a day when you aren’t feeling well, or haven’t had much sleep. You’ll find that your workout isn’t as satisfying because you won’t be able to put 100% of yourself into your routine if you do. Take a break and return to exercise when you’re feeling better.
If you hate all the fitness exercises or you find them very boring, but you have a passion for dancing, you can use it to improve your personal fitness. Easy dance movements performed with music and matched to your personal capabilities and taste can be used to reach your fitness goals.
