Your Fitness Training Part 2

Hi,

In part one of your fitness training we talked about developing a strategy for achieving your fitness goals. 

You saw that a power lifters goal’s and workout strategy are much different from someone that just wants to lose weight. 

Before we go into more strategies there is something else that – I would venture to say – almost no one thinks about.

Of course this thing that no one thinks about helps to keep the fitness industry full of charlatons and scam artists in business. 

This is why you see thousands of different types of programs.  This is why you see thousands of different diets.  This is why you see thousands of different supplements. 

Part of it is because no one has a strategy.  The other part, and I think the biggest part, is because no one accounts for their life.

What does that mean?

Simply that if you are going to have a strategy to lose some weight, have you thought about not only losing weight right now, but have you thought about keeping it off for the rest of your life.

Seeing as almost everyone that has gone on a diet has lost and gained weight several times, most people have not thought about it.

Let’s use an example.  There are several popular programs out there today that have you engage in all out pushing yourself for either as long as you can or for 20 minutes. 

Now there is nothing inherently wrong with these programs.  They will help you get in better shape and lose some weight. 

But, what if you are 67 years old?  Are you going to start one of those programs?  I think not as it would probably kill you.

What if you are 150 pounds overweight?  Trying to do some of those exercises would put too much stress on your joints and you would end up hurting yourself. 

What if you have had back surgery, do you really want to be doing all kinds of plyometric exercises?

So what do those questions have in common? 

They are designed to make you look harder at your strategy and goals.

Here is the key thing that almost no one considers.  Is your exercise program or fitness training something that you can do and maintain for a lifetime?

As you look at all those exercise and fitness programs, ask yourself if you can even do them right now.  Can you see yourself doing the program as you get older?

Now those questions bring up the whole issue of intensity. 

And we will get into that in the next post on your fitness training.

Thanks
