With the new year well under way, many of us may be working on our new year’s resolution of getting into better shape, or you may be wondering where to start on your fitness journey. The key to success is consistency, which is why it is essential to create a fitness plan that fits into your life and is realistic to maintain to help you get the results you want.
Below are some tips on how to develop a realistic fitness plan, whether you’re a fitness pro or you are new to the world of health and fitness.
To ensure your fitness plan is structured in a way that will provide the results you want, it is essential first to understand what your goals are. Once you’ve determined your goals, it is crucial to pick a primary goal and focus on that for at least the next few months.
Although when you exercise you will be working on multiple aspects of fitness, it is important to have a primary focus that will help make your fitness goals more manageable than trying to achieve all the goals at once.
With a wide array of information out there about what the best training exercises are and the most effective training principles to follow, it can be easy to overcomplicate your fitness plan.
This overload of fitness and health information can be overwhelming, especially to someone new to the health and fitness world. To help keep things simple, it is important to structure your fitness plan around more straight-forward fundamentals while sparingly adding in more complicated methods, avoiding the overcomplication and confusion that could discourage your efforts at the gym.
Washington residents and those in the surrounding areas can take advantage of our personal training services to help develop a straight-forward training program.
Be sure to get to the gym when you plan to and workout within your abilities. You do not need to have an explosive, grueling exercise session to get results. Consistent workouts that match your skills and fitness level are the key to getting the results you want.
To help encourage yourself to be consistent, choose the fewest number of exercises as possible to start and perform them at a level you are comfortable. If you leave the gym feeling entirely exhausted, you are less likely to continue with the grueling routine. Start small and build up to more difficult exercises.
