Use “Fitstar” and You Don’t Have To Spend Money On Personal Training Again

Use “Fitstar” and You Don’t Have To Spend Money On Personal Training Again

As you may know, hiring a personal trainer is expensive. And while gyms have their place, finding time to regularly visit one can be a problem for many people.

The above factors lead many people to pursue home workouts. But often these programs aren’t properly matched to the individual’s personal goals and limits. They can also lead to people doing exercises incorrectly, or choosing exercises that are unsuitable for them.

Is there a solution to these problems? You bet there is.

Fitstar That Allows You to Workout Anywhere, Anytime

    Let me introduce you to a fantastic fitness app called Fitstar. Used by millions of people across the world, the app powered by Fitbit – but you don’t need a Fitbit to use it.

    Fitstar is available for any device, and the app can be downloaded for free.

    So how does it work?

    Similar to other fitness apps, Fitstar initially asks you to input your personal information. However, what makes it different from other apps on the market, is that it asks you to do a fitness test, followed by a request to submit feedback.

    Based on the fitness test + your feedback, the app will then create personal workout plans for you. Each covering different time spans (from 7 to 50 minutes). The workouts cater for a variety of circumstances, including home, gym and on the go. And the workouts are not just standard gym exercises – but also include yoga courses to train up your flexibility and help you stretch after working out.

    The amazing amount of content available on the app, plus its unique workouts creation tool, means that you’ll never do the same routine twice. For starters, there are hundreds of exercises dedicated to your core, butt, legs, arms and back.

    There are also handcrafted sessions such as “7-minute Workout” and “10-minute Abs,” which help to keep your training fresh and rewarding.

    What Are the Key Benefits of Using Fitstar?

      Fitstar offers some great benefits to its users.

      The customized workouts are detailed and aligned with your fitness targets. Through smart time, distance and calorie-burning measurements, the app can provide not just an overview of your progress – but as much detail as you need to feel fully motivated.

      Fitstar’s personal trainers are on hand to help you amend your workout when needed. Nevertheless, the app’s supplementary videos show you step-by-step how to perform all the moves and exercises that make up your personal workouts.

      And if the above wasn’t enough, Fitstar can also be connected with popular devices and weight management apps such as Fitbit, MyFitnessPal and Strava. (Giving you a complete fitness overview.)

      Your Health Is in Your Hands

        If you don’t want to spend big bucks on a personal trainer, and finding time to regularly go to a gym is not an option, then the Fitstar app is the perfect alternative. It’ll help you train efficiently and safely, while always providing the all-essential motivating factor.

        Fitstar is available as a free download from their official website. And once you have the app on your device, you’ll be able to customize your fitness soundtrack with Fitstar Radio – which offers a variety of music stations from Pop to Hip Hop to help motivate you during your exercise time.

        So, if you want to get yourself fit and healthy, download the app today, and start working on your workouts!

        How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

        How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

        Being in a hurry all the time drains your energy. Your work and routine life make you feel overwhelmed. Getting caught up in things beyond your control stresses you out…

        If you’d like to stay calm and cool in stressful situations, put the following 8 steps into practice:

        1. Breathe

        The next time you’re faced with a stressful situation that makes you want to hurry, stop what you’re doing for one minute and perform the following steps:

        • Take five deep breaths in and out (your belly should come forward with each inhale).
        • Imagine all that stress leaving your body with each exhale.
        • Smile. Fake it if you have to. It’s pretty hard to stay grumpy with a goofy grin on your face.

        Feel free to repeat the above steps every few hours at work or home if you need to.

        2. Loosen up

        After your breathing session, perform a quick body scan to identify any areas that are tight or tense. Clenched jaw? Rounded shoulders? Anything else that isn’t at ease?

        Gently touch or massage any of your body parts that are under tension to encourage total relaxation. It might help to imagine you’re in a place that calms you: a beach, hot tub, or nature trail, for example.

        3. Chew slowly

        Slow down at the dinner table if you want to learn to be patient and lose weight. Shoveling your food down as fast as you can is a surefire way to eat more than you need to (and find yourself with a bellyache).

        Be a mindful eater who pays attention to the taste, texture, and aroma of every dish. Chew slowly while you try to guess all of the ingredients that were used to prepare your dish.

        Chewing slowly will also reduce those dreadful late-night cravings that sneak up on you after work.

        4. Let go

        Cliche as it sounds, it’s very effective.

        The thing that seems like the end of the world right now?

        It’s not. Promise.

        Stressing and worrying about the situation you’re in won’t do any good because you’re already in it, so just let it go.

        Letting go isn’t easy, so here’s a guide to help you:

        21 Things To Do When You Find It Hard To Let Go

        5. Enjoy the journey

        Focusing on the end result can quickly become exhausting. Chasing a bold, audacious goal that’s going to require a lot of time and patience? Split it into several mini-goals so you’ll have several causes for celebration.

        Stop focusing on the negative thoughts. Giving yourself consistent positive feedback will help you grow patience, stay encouraged, and find more joy in the process of achieving your goals.

        6. Look at the big picture

        The next time you find your stress level skyrocketing, take a deep breath, and ask yourself:

        Advertising

        Will this matter to me…

        • Next week?
        • Next month?
        • Next year?
        • In 10 years?

        Hint: No, it won’t.

        I bet most of the stuff that stresses you wouldn’t matter the next week, maybe not even the next day.

        Stop agonizing over things you can’t control because you’re only hurting yourself.

        7. Stop demanding perfection of yourself

        You’re not perfect and that’s okay. Show me a person who claims to be perfect and I’ll show you a dirty liar.

        Demanding perfection of yourself (or anybody else) will only stress you out because it just isn’t possible.

        8. Practice patience every day

        Below are a few easy ways you can practice patience every day, increasing your ability to remain calm and cool in times of stress:

        • The next time you go to the grocery store, get in the longest line.
        • Instead of going through the drive-thru at your bank, go inside.
        • Take a long walk through a secluded park or trail.

        Final thoughts

        Staying calm in stressful situations is possible, all you need is some daily practice.

        Taking deep breaths and eat mindfully are some simple ways to train your brain to be more patient. But changing the way you think of a situation and staying positive are most important in keeping cool whenever you feel overwhelmed and stressful.
