Getting in shape or just trying to live a healthier life is a popular choice these days. I think it is a fantastic phenomenon. But If I talk from my experience, this can be a tricky thing to pull off. Of course, a lot of my friends are hitting the gym like there’s no tomorrow and, these ‘Gym Bros’ are constantly trying to convince me that you need to hit the gym regularly, to stay in shape. That, I don’t really believe. It’s definitely great to work out at a gym. You feel more motivated to workout because of the community-like environment, plus there’s a professional trainer to guide you through the whole process in accordance to your needs and preferences. Despite all these advantages, I think the gym is not for everyone. Gym takes up a lot of time from our busy schedule, and it’s still not a cost-effective option for an individual who just wants stay in shape.
I believe you can definitely stay in shape if you have the will to live a healthier life. Cutting down on the junk foods and maintaining a well-balanced diet is the first step towards the goal of getting fit. Wait, it’s the first step, not the only step haha. You still need to have a proper workout routine which needs to be followed on a regular basis and need to have enough rest. We can’t expect those six packs magically appearing on our Bhaat Belly, our own version of the Beer Belly, can we?
Now the question is how is it easier for us to stay fit without a gym membership? How can we keep track, where to start or how can we gradually shift to more intense workouts? This is where fitness apps & wearables come in. The rapid development in healthcare technology has presented us with a reality where we can workout anytime, anywhere, at our convenience with some effective apps & wearables. Now there are various kinds of fitness apps & wearables which will guide you throughout your journey of getting fit.
