If you are wondering if it is really possible to boost your metabolism and shed fat with a program that just asks for 15 minutes on your weekdays and a little more time on the weekends; then this post is for you. Your body can be lean and tight and not soft and flabby if you are willing to consistently devote just a little time each day to your goals. Consistency is the key to your success. It is a mistake to make a heroic effort one day and then take a week off recovering from your attempt to do too much. It is much more effective to do a reasonable amount each day but to do it very regularly.

Muscle is a powerful calorie burner and it does its job 24/7. The body weight exercises in Exercising values are easy to do anywhere and safe for all ages. Train smart by utilizing neuro-muscular activation exercises as part of your warm-up. That simply means you are going to get your mind and nervous system on your side so you can activate the most muscle in the least amount of time. Athletes use these exercises to improve coordination and proprioception, which is a sense of where your body is in space. My boot camp members also tell me that these exercises are so distracting that the time just flies by. They know they are working hard but they are laughing and enjoying the challenge of the movements.

Fat melts off your body best when you do full body bursts of a combination of resistance and cardio. It is very time-efficient to work out this way and you will get amazing results. Your energy level will increase. Your self-confidence will skyrocket because it is easy to track your improvement. The best place to do that is in the mirror where you will begin to see muscle definition as the fat escapes your body to reveal the muscles that have been hidden by adipose tissue.

Exercising Values is designed to help everyone in the family, not just the children. When moms feel and look better they have more energy and happiness to spread to their children. It can add a spark to the marriage as well as you take control over this important aspect of your life. It is a bonus that while you are getting in great shape your children are also benefiting by the time you spend with them and by what you teach them about excellent character and a healthy life style. Your consistency with them gives them security and something to look forward to and remember. Take fifteen minutes today to do an Exercising Values workout and see for yourself how much better you feel.
