Everyone wants to lose weight quick, fast and easy. Now is that possible? Is it even feasible? Well OF COURSE IT IS! How? It is very simple: quick, fast and easy weight loss is only possible if you make it possible. Now there are two ways that you can make it possible 1) through diet and 2) through exercise. On this blog we already have some articles about diet and even about how to get over those really hard cravings, so we will not talk much about that on this post. Today is all about exercise and more specifically 5 steps on how you can choose an exercise that you will not just like but love …
Why are you doing all of this again? In any type of endeavor in life you can never go in blind without any idea about what you are doing or where you are going. Now when it comes to exercise and choosing the exercise program that you want to use to accelerate your weight loss progress that fundamental rule does not change. So keep in mind before you think about and or choose a new exercise program keep in mind the reasons why you are doing this. In the end you will have a much better idea of what you need and when you need in terms of a exercise program.
Where are you on the totem pole? You know we are all people and every single person is different. Every single person is at a different point in their lives and need different things at different times. That does not change at all when it comes to an exercise program. One thing that we need to keep in mind for not only our progress but for our safety is at what level we are on. Are you a beginner, intermediate or advanced? Do you go to the gym or exercise once a month, pretty regularly or do you have your own personal PO box at your local gym because you're there almost constantly? These are all questions that you need to ask yourself for your own safety and personal progress in choosing an exercise that will work for you.
How much time do you have on your hands? We can not hide it or avoid it everyone has a different schedule and for that reason we all can not enjoy the same kind of exercise. Whatever you do please do not chose an exercise program that is going to interfere with your other responsibilities whether they be physical, emotional or family matters because you will only frustrate the life out of yourself. If you do not have time look for ways to make time for smaller less workouts because if you do not you will probably start an exercise program – want super quick overnight results – not get them and sweat off exercising the rest of your life. Keep in mind your time restraints so as to find an exercise program that you will do regularly, will definitely enjoy and will benefit from.
Do not be what you are not. For some reason people think that they need to belong to a gym, go to a class or be part of some club. Now if you are a social and competitive person that is great join every club, gym and class you want to join them twice if that is what you want but if you're not then do not. If you are a reserved and quite person that is fine no one should force you, make you feel bad or corner you into something like that. You have to be sincere to yourself and realize what you really need if you want to have weight loss success and feel more than free to look for exercise alternatives to do by yourself, with a close friend or at home that you are comfortable with. Be honest to yourself and realize the type of support group you need and if you need to start alone or start with the whole neighborhood I personally wish the best to you.
How deep are your pockets? Exercise is something that everyone should do and that everyone should enjoy. Although sometimes exercise – especially when it comes to clubs and gyms – can get kind of expensive. So what kind of investment are you willing to make? Well everything depends on you and where you are at your weight loss goal and if feel that X program could help you down the long run. Although just keep price in mind for when choosing an exercise program you probably will not feel too good having to leave a program for financial reasons when it could have been prevented.
