How to start running

Cardio!  Boo hiss, I know, but it can be easier than you think. 

Cardio, it’s more than looking sexy as hell naked, but that’s a good start

I know that everyone hates cardio, but stay with me here.

No matter who you are, your body was made to move! And the benefits of incorporating some cardio are immense.

Just some benefits include:

  • Weight loss

  • Stronger heart and lungs

  • Increased bone density

  • Reduced stress

  • Reduced risk of heart disease and some types of cancer

  • Temporary relief from depression and anxiety

  • More confidence about how you feel and how you look

  • Better sleep

  • More energy

  • Setting a good example for your kids to stay active as they get older

If you're thinking cardio is something you can't do, check out that list above again. This isn't just about weight loss and looking sexy as hell naked. 

This is about setting an example, being confident, and approaching life with less stress. Pick the one or two that are important to you and write them down or share them in the comments.  We'd love to see what's driving you.  For me its setting a good example for my kids and stress reduction.

If you want to add this to your goal list, start easy.  Just like you read that meditating can start with just two minutes, (and if you haven't you should read it), we can start getting our hearts in shape with small steps.

I'll be offering you some more intense workouts to add in later, but for now-just give this a shot. And by the way, you don't need to wait until you're in shape, you're best self ever is waiting for
