Whether you’ve signed up to run a 10K, do a color run, or take part in a mud marathon, if you aren’t in the best shape then you might be starting to sweat it. The last thing that you want is to crash and burn after tackling just a portion of the event that you’ve signed up to smash, as that would be incredibly embarrassing.
You would train the old-fashioned way – over a period of months – but you don’t have that long. You may have been slightly ambitious about how much you could boost your fitness levels in just a few weeks and are now starting to panic.
Fast Track Your Progress With These Tips!
Although you only have a short time frame to get into shape for the event that you’ve signed up for, there’s no need to panic as there are some simple ways that you can fast track your progress.
Read some of the best hacks I’ve discovered to for fast-tracking your fitness progress. These tips will help you to ensure that you can complete the event that you’ve put your name down for – whatever it may be!
Use an App
Before apps became big, you would have had to hire a personal trainer to help you achieve your fitness goals quickly. However, thanks to the invention (and popularity) of apps, you can now use a fitness app instead.
There are various apps made to prepare you for sporting events, that can be used to get you from being able to run a quarter of a mile to be able to run constantly for five or six miles, in just a few short weeks.
My phone is full of my favorite training apps! I can adjust them to meet my own fitness and weight loss goals. Honestly, apps can be a great tool for getting in shape quickly and preparing for a sporting event.
Consider Doing a Quick Fix Program
What about doing a quick fix weight loss and fitness program? You might think that these kinds of programs aren’t a good option because they don’t offer sustainable results but that’s not necessarily the case.
Take the 21 Day Fix, for instance, as you can see by this article – ‘21 Day Fix Review: The Ultimate Guide To Losing Weight And Keeping Off’ – it is a sustainable option, and so are certain other quick fix plans. Sometimes, all it takes is finding the time to try out different options and find the one that’s the best fit for your fitness and weight loss needs!
When it comes to training for any event, whether it’s a few weeks away or a few months away, it pays to buddy up. The fact is that if you are going to be successful and achieve the levels of fitness that you need to do well on the run or another sporting event that you’ve signed up for, you need to remain motivated at all times.
You can’t skip a run or shorten one because you are feeling tired – you need to remain motivated at all times. That’s where having a partner can be useful – the two of you can motivate each other to work as hard as possible and ensure that you each stay on track and achieve your fitness goals.
There you have it, a guide to fast-tracking your fitness ready for a fun run, marathon, inflatable obstacle run – or whatever event you’ve signed up for.
