So we all want to know what everyone else is doing to get in shape!
What’s the best cardio?
What time should I train?
Should I eat first or is it better fasted?
Should I do HIIT or Steady State cardio?
Sometimes we get so caught up working out the perfect workout routine that we don’t actually do anything!
Do you know what? When I got in the best shape ever I didn’t have set cardio sessions, I JUST MOVED MORE!
Yep, there it is. Super simple. I was generally just more active which meant I burnt more calories throughout the day.
I just became a step counting freak for a while. Whenever I could I walked. If there was an opportunity to get some more steps in I took it.
Some day’s I’d hit 20, 000 steps just from making more of an effort!
For someone who used to laugh at step counters I was the step counter queen and it worked. For sure I still had some cardio sessions that I scheduled in as I knew I needed to to ensure I got the steps up but I wasn’t stressed out whether it was a powerwalk, jog or sprint session. I just did what I could with the energy I could and aimed for a base level each day.
I’ve even seen some of my online clients achieve the same amazing results through the same process. I might give them 3 set cardio sessions each week just to challenge them but the rest of the time they are just aiming to maintain a certain level of steps and here are the results –
If you’re finding yourself caught up in all the information out there my biggest tip is simply to MOVE MORE!
If you have a step counter (you can even get one for your phone) then monitor an average week and see what your average daily steps are, not an awesome day and not a crap day and AVERAGE of the whole week. From there you might just add 2-3000 steps per day as your new average and it will force you to move more.
This WILL make a difference so get started NOW!

Have a great week.
