When I was a kid, my dad would take me to the gym. In the late ’80s, when I was 5, he used to just drop off and pick me up after. We would do kettlebells and sit-ups, then start on the treadmill, jumping rope, and then the free weights. He would occasionally stop the treadmill and ask me how I was doing, if I was tired or sore, even if I was getting bored.
Here’s the thing: the best fitness advice I received in my life was probably not the advice I got from my trainers in the gym. Instead, it was advice I got from other people, from the people I knew, even the people I didn’t know. There’s no shortage of advice out there about how to stay healthy. It can be anything from what foods you should be eating to the exercises you should be doing. Many times, advice is contradictory. So you end up making up your own way of staying healthy.
For me, consistency is the key to success. I always try to learn from my mistakes and avoid them in the future. If I do mess up, I go back and try to figure out how I could have avoided it. That way, I am not always stuck in the same rut but also can take advantage.
Most of the time, when I write about health, it’s for other people. But I realized that I was missing a big part of my life’s story that I could help others with. If you have a hard time losing weight, or don’t feel like working out, or find it difficult to stick to a diet, I would like to share the tips that I have learned over the years. Be patient. This is hard, and it takes time. Most of the time, people are impatient and want to be “done” and out of that situation. But we need to remember that the process we are in is not meant to go by quickly. It is meant to be done right. If you learn something in a class or with a coach that makes you feel like you are improving, then just keep doing it. If you feel like you are stuck and want to take a break, then do that. If you feel like you need to work at it more, then do that. Do not be impatient, be patient.
Train With A Plan
Whether you want to lose weight, or bulk up, or just keep in great physical shape for your next race, there is a way to succeed. One of the best ways to achieve these goals is to use a plan. A plan is a series of steps you can take to achieve your goals. They are not necessarily rigid processes where you follow the steps exactly, but they are set guidelines to help you achieve your goals.
There is no doubt that with the rise of social media, everyone is a “fitness expert.” But what if I told you I could find the fitness expert without social media? The idea came to me in a dream. I awoke and quickly thought about it: How can I find the fitness expert that has no social media presence? I thought about it for a few days, and then after I called my friends that were older than me, and asked what they did when they were young, they all said the same thing: they went to the gym.
It’s a well-known fact that your health is directly related to your fitness. A fit body means a healthy mind, and a healthy mind means productive life. But a lot of times, we don’t realize how important it is to maintain a fit body. Fitness is an underappreciated subject in today’s society. Many people have trouble motivating themselves to get out the door and work on their fitness. Oftentimes, people think that an expensive gym membership is the only way to exercise when in reality, you can get your heart rate up by walking just about anywhere around your neighborhood.
The fitness industry is a multi-billion dollar industry that has helped millions of people lose weight, get in shape and improve their overall health. It is no surprise that this industry is growing. What is surprising is the amount of misinformation it can contain. As a fitness consultant, I am constantly asked which fitness programs I recommend and what supplements they should take. I am also asked to speak on the topic of weight loss, and I am frequently asked to give advice on what people should eat for specific health concerns.
