The Curbza Workout
There you have it, you have set your New Years resolution to get slim and in shape for summer. In this week’s blog we are going to look at health and fitness because we want to be a part of your success. We know it isn’t easy to lose the extra pounds from all the helpings of Christmas but we have you covered, you’re going to reach your goal.
Losing weight is a big challenge. One of our investors took the challenge last year and lost a whopping 25 lbs! When we asked them how they did it, they shared the following strategy to lose 1lb a week. This was achieved by maintaining a calorie deficit of 500 calories per day as one pound is 3500 calories. (7 days x 500 calories = 3500 cal). The app myfitnesspal is great for tracking your calories and was a key tool for their success.
Another way to earn more burned calories is cardio. Swimming, Cycling, and Running are all great activities for burning calories. In as little as 30 mins you can burn 300 calories by running. Here is a more complete list of 30-minute exercises and their calorie consumption.
Some items to keep at home to help you are a fitness ball, some weights and a fitness tracker like a Fitbit. These items alway appear on Curbza so as you begin your journey to weight loss, get Curbza and find all the other training tools to get you success.
As the weight falls away and you start to get in shape, you may consider getting really active in sports. We suggest you search google for “Sport & Social Club”. You should also include your city. These clubs are everywhere and cater to people who want to stay active throughout the work week.
If you don’t play sports, we suggest dodgeball. Like they say in the movie Dodgeball “If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball!”. The game is that easy. Just when you think your getting good, you will get hit with the ball. Best of all you’ll make new friends that fit in with your healthy lifestyle.
We hope you enjoyed this weeks blog. Team Curbza believes in you. Set your goals and go!
