The best exercise program.

by Matt Freeman on 01/26/14

Looking for the right exercise program can be a very daunting task. All the different exercises, sets, reps, training principles, periodization etc. There are many things you must look at when trying to find something that suits you, but the number one goal you must attain is to find something that you ENJOY. Unless you are an athlete or aspiring to be one, you are most likely getting into fitness to get in better shape and become a healthier person.

The reason why many people fail with their fitness programs is because they do not enjoy what they are doing. They believe that they “have” to run on a treadmill or perform certain exercises to achieve the goals they want. For the most part, this is not true. Cardiovascular activities come in many forms such as running, biking, swimming, jump roping, fast walking, etc. Also, for the need to just burn calories you can take slow walks outside or on a treadmill for extended periods of time without discomfort. Anything that gets your body moving will burn calories and the more you enjoy something, the more likely you will continue to move.

Sticking to an exercise regime is what gets you results, too many people try and fail. You do not just want to “try” you want to “accomplish”. Get out there and add some activities you enjoy, find a workout partner and do things together, walk your dogs more often, join a zumba class, anything that gets you moving and creates enjoyment in your life. You want exercise to be an enjoyable addition to your life, not just a chore that you must do. Find your enjoyment.
