Can 30 Minutes a Day Three Days a Week Achieve My Fitness Goals?
When it comes to fitness and health, our goals are as different as we are. Whether you’re trying to lose some extra weight, create the beach bod you’ve always dreamed of, training for an event, or just trying to live a healthier lifestyle in general, actually reaching your fitness goals can feel pretty daunting and even impossible at times.
Before working toward fitness goals, we have to tackle what’s holding us back; our excuses.
We all have our “why-I-can’t-go-work-out” line-up, but feeling like we “don’t have time” is a big one that can stop us in our tracks before we even begin. But what if we told you that exercising for 30 minutes a day, three days a week CAN put you on the path to reach your fitness goals?
Already feeling like your target is more attainable? Let us explain.
30 minutes is Manageable
A lot of disappointment and failed fitness aspirations stem from working out in a way that just isn’t sustainable. Crazy, extreme, or unhealthy diets will always blow up in your face, and leave you back at square one. Not to mention all those hangry (hungry + angry) side effects that have those you love wondering how you went from fun and awesome to crusty warthog. Going from extreme to extreme won’t yield much progress and can leave you feeling defeated. Difficult or extensive workout plans can also be tough to maintain on a consistent basis and make you feel like jumping ship when you’re not able to accomplish your goals as quickly as you’d hoped.
Working out for just 30 minutes a day three days a week? MANAGEABLE. And manageable is a key in your fitness success. What’s more empowering than saying you’ll do something, and then… actually doing it?! You’re in control, whether you’re powering through one of our 30 minute KUBE workouts, going for a swim or hike, or completing 30 minutes of cardio.
A study done by the University of Copenhagen suggests that working out for 30 minutes a day (at a moderate pace that causes you to burn 300 calories) could actually be as effective as working out for 60 minutes a day at the same pace! Scientists behind the study found that the shorter exercise sessions left participants with more energy and motivation to live healthier lifestyles.
No matter how you look at it, 30 minutes of exercise per day is manageable, attainable, and just plain good for you.
Efficiency is Everything
We get it. The frantic pace of life makes exercising regularly pretty difficult at times. But If you’re too busy for 30 minutes three days a week, we’ll tell you right now that you’ve got too much going on! Whether you start your day of with 30 minutes of HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training), squeeze out a 30 minute workout at KUBEX during your lunch break, or tackle the treadmill for 30 minutes while the kiddos take a nap, half an hour of exercise is efficient and completely doable for just about any schedule. We guarantee you won’t regret carving out that time to be a healthier and a happier you.
Love the Intensity
You can do anything for 30 minutes right? Push yourself! When it comes to working out, we would argue that quality trumps quantity. There’s plenty of workouts that can really help you to make the most of your 30 minutes. HIIT is a great option if you’re looking for a fast paced workout that gets straight to the point. According to Peak Fitness, HIIT “gives a natural boost to human growth hormone (HGH) production, which is essential for optimal health, strength and vigor and has been shown to significantly improve insulin sensitivity, boost fat loss, and increase muscle growth.” Talk about benefits! You can burn more fat, push into the anaerobic zone (that lovely spot where you hit your maximum heart rate and lungs start burning), lose weight and not muscle, and increase your metabolism.
At KUBEX, you can experience convenient 30 minute workouts where all you need to do is show up and follow the animated figures on the screen to get a solid sweat session in. No stressing, just getting healthy and improve your personal fitness. Pace yourself at an intensity level of your comfort in your own fitness KUBE.
No matter what your fitness level or what you choose to do in your half hour session, push yourself. Intensity is everything!
Consistency, Consistency, Consistency
Consistent action creates consistent results. If you want real and lasting results in your fitness goals, the key is consistency. Stick to it! Running for five miles one day and then staying away from physical activity for two weeks afterwards will not only leave you feeling sore, but won’t help you gain much progress at all! According to Fitday.com, a commitment to a regular workout regimen “will increase your fitness level, improve your health, and generate a greater sense of mental well being.” We couldn’t agree more!
For the best results, consistency is key. To improve your consistency, map out when you will work out each week. Don’t be afraid to commit! Writing it down and holding yourself to a day and time can help you to make regular, consistent habits of health and fitness. Sticking to a regular workout schedule of 30 minutes a day three days a week can also benefit your mental well-being, increasing your energy and heightening your mood. Your mind may experience reduced levels of stress and greater relaxation as well. A lof of your transformation may take place inside of your body so try not to feel discouraged if you don’t have a six pack even though you’ve been at it for a few weeks straight. Results will come as you slowly but surely create a healthy lifestyle and smart eating habits. It’s just simple science, people.
