Health and Fitness - Start Asking Some Questions
June 21, 2012
by Ron Blake
Why could an interrogative help your fitness? When could an interrogative help you with your health? Where could an interrogative help you with your wellness? What the #%@ is an interrogative? They are the words that help you ask a question, and they are often known as the five Wís. Who, what, when, where, and why are ready to get some answers from you about achieving your healthy state.

Who should you exercise with? Some people are individualistic and prefer only the company of the music from their earbuds. Working out alone can be an excellent escape from the rigors of your day. However, you might just want a pal to push you toward those fitness goals that you set in motion. A partner can get you motivated to find that sometimes elusive entrance to the health club. The synergy from joining with a friend can also leave you with much more than you expected.

What should you do when get to the gym? It helps if you know the intentions for your exercising. A marathon in three months would put you on the treadmill. A postpartum panic would have you burning the calories and trimming those thighs with a Zumba class. A desire to join the rugby team would lead you to build solid muscle with the gridiron goliaths and all their free weights.

When should I expect to see you at the health club? Mornings can be a good way to get that fitness routine on the books. Early workouts can give added energy to your day. They also can get your workout out of the way so you can plan other activities for evenings. The rise-and-shine option can give you that confidence that comes with a job well-done. The rise-and-shine option also means that you will need to actually get up an hour earlier for work. That doesnít appeal to the masses, usually. Late-afternoon workouts will still get Ďer done!

Where are you going to exercise? Itís not likely you will have a treadmill, full set of dumbbells, and an indoor swimming pool at your home. If you want a lot of variety and numerous options, then Iíd go with a health-club membership. On the other hand, you can make it happen at 123 Anywhere Street with a little resourcefulness. You could get a good workout in with resistance bands, an exercise ball, and a few sets of dumbbells. These items are easy to store and can be used in almost every room in your apartment, house, or condo.

Why are you working out? This open-ended question can inspire myriad answers: companionship, preparation for a charity walk, your doctorís request, the challenge of it all, or to stay alive to see your kidís graduation day. You should have a goal to guide you around the bases and get you to home plate. Goals are amazingly powerful when used properly!

The more preparation you do for your endeavors, the more likely you will have something positive to show for the effort. This translates to more fun, and who doesnít want that?

Take some time to answer these basic five questions, and see how beneficial the results can be for your health and fitness.

This health and welness article is brought to you by that guy who likes to answer questions with yet more questions. That guy of quantum queries is Ron Blake, and he can be found in perplexity at SmallTownBigCityRadio.com.
