Capt. Bryce Saddoris, the reigning Marine Corps’ Male Athlete of the Year, knows a thing or two about getting and staying in shape. At 27, he is a four-time Nevada state wrestling champion, two-time college All-American, and the most successful wrestler in Naval Academy history.

Now, he is in charge of the Marine Corps’ wrestling team in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. His life is devoted to staying in shape, and he has a few words of wisdom for all of those who are attempting to do so as well. Here are his best fitness tips:

 

Make it a priority.

Fitness should be incorporated into your daily routine so you don’t have time to make excuses and skip workouts. Don’t wait until you have time to do it, you should always make time no matter the circumstance.

 

Always stretch.

Stretching prevents painful injuries, so take time before and after each workout to do a length stretch. This goes for strength training and cardio exercises. Before you jump into hard intervals or a fast-paced run, start out at a slow jog to warm your body up.

 

Drink water.

Skip the sports drinks, juices and other electrolyte-enhanced beverages and drink pure water. There’s no better way to hydrate and keep your body running than to drink water.

 

Eat right.

No matter what you do in the gym, you won’t see results if you don’t take the time to learn how to eat right. Saddoris suggests eating breakfast within 15 minutes of waking up to jumpstart your metabolism. Eat your biggest meal at lunch and fill up with proteins, not carbs, at dinner.

 

Remember to rest.

Listen to your body. If you’ve worked out a number of days in a row and have started to feel the aches and pains associated with intense exercise, take a day off and let your body heal. There’s no use working out on a worn-down body, so give yourself a break when you’ve earned it.
