Home Fitness – Am I too old to break a habit of a lifetime?
It’s never too late to change your habits for the better and put home fitness on your daily agenda.
Research shows that no matter how old you are changing your habits for the better makes a big difference to your well being
For example If you have never exercised before or haven’t exercised for a long time, you can change this habit by doing a little bit at a time, the important thing is to make this a habit, it could be the first thing you do in the morning, you get up freshen up grab a cup of coffee and the next thing you do is your workout, if you can stick to this routine for a week or so it will quickly turn into a habit, plus you will feel physically and mentally 10 times better for the rest of the day
