My dad once told me the secret to success with a fitness program…
How parking far away and taking the stairs can change your body...
With so much information out there, how do you know what fitness plan you should follow?
Before I answer the question let me just make it clear what I want to do with this blog. Since this is my first blog post on this new blog (I had hundreds on my old blog) I want to start out by letting you know that I like to keep things simple. I'm all about results. For myself, for my clients and for you, the reader.
With that being said, back to the question.
The best fitness plan and the best diet plan is the one you will follow. The one you will do. Where you will be consistent, make progress and it's something you can stick to long-term.
Now I could go many directions with this point but like I said, I want to make this simple. Let's talk results.
1- Be realistic. How many days can you see yourself committing to the gym? Be honest with yourself. Same for your diet plan. Can you see yourself sticking to whatever diet you choose for 80% or more of the time?
2. Find something you enjoy. If you hate to run then don't try to run yourself into shape. Or if you can't stomach going into a commercial gym then find a way to work out in your garage or find a small studio with a trainer to help you out.
3. Experiment. Try different programs. Give a program some time to work before changing it up all the time but if you dread going to the gym and don't look forward to your workouts at all then you may need to find something else. There's no hard rule that says you have to lift a certain way or only do certain exercises. Find your own way!
That's it for now.
In this age of technology and social media there's enough to read and videos to watch. We have short attention spans. How much info can we even hold in our minds? So I will keep these short and to the point with the hopes that it will help someone. If you have more questions, feel free to email me.
I usually reply within a day with my honest opinion.
