Planning Your Long-Term Fitness Goal

Planning Your Long-Term Fitness Goal

Motivation, necessary knowledge, and a few pointers and tactics can all help you reach your objectives. Encourage yourself correctly with our list of eleven starting recommendations that will help you achieve your fitness and health objectives.

People usually think motivation and information are for the advanced and smart people, but we’re talking about a person who is actually trying to get in shape and improve his/her health levels as well. If you think that you’re too smart for motivation, you’re just plain wrong.

Incorporating your fitness and health goals with a buddy or buddy pair is the perfect way to give you a support system. You can work out together, talk about your goals, challenge each other with your own goals, and even compare goals and achievements with others in your buddy group. This will help to keep you motivated on your journey to reaching your goals.

Don’t focus on “peak performance.”

People usually get too caught up in trying to improve their performance in a specific, limited area of a fitness training program. Instead, focus on getting the “full body workout.” Aim for “getting the heart pumping, lungs breathing, muscles tight, body fat burning.”

This means doing an at least five to ten minute cardiovascular exercise, such as dancing, skipping, skipping, or skipping rope.

Don’t be afraid to “pump things up.”

You’ll be discouraged, yes, but that’s fine. Even with your motivation broken and the “beginner mind-set,” you’ll still be able to see some of the benefits of what you’re doing because of the progression of the activity. If you just work out at the gym without making things “progress,” then you’ll still be doing well even though your motivation is reduced. And one of the best ways to progress your fitness and health training is to be able to “up your game.”

“Up your game” means adding time, frequency, intensity, or the amount of weight you use. For instance, if you only perform ten minutes of running per week, then, with a treadmill, you can increase that to fifteen minutes and have that only include a five minute stride. This is done to help you to push harder and progress your training better.

Just as it’s important to have a partner to keep you motivated to succeed, it’s equally important to work with a trainer who will be supportive, knowledgeable, and creative in developing a program that is a good fit for your lifestyle and goals. You will need a program that makes sense both for your current fitness level and your long-term fitness goals.

Many people will get stuck in a rut or find themselves making the same mistakes time and time again with the same workout. And, as with anything, you want to be progressive. You don’t want to be doing the same repetitive exercise routines year after year because they’re not progressive.

A good trainer will have a progressive program that is designed to challenge you year after year and also keep you on track with your goals. The good news is that most trainers are now educated enough to know that if you want to be successful, you need to be progressive. This is why you’ll see many trainers now encouraging progression as well.

The two things that make a good trainer are:

1. Knowledge.

They should be well educated in the fitness industry and have a well founded passion for helping people. You don’t want to work with a trainer who is just passing by or a trainer who is only training celebrities.

2. The relationship.

They should be someone who you can trust. A good trainer will take the time to learn more about you and your situation and will make recommendations to you, you should trust them with your money and not try to get by them by working with someone who will not be supportive or has a short attention span.

3. Technical Knowledge.

They should be knowledgeable in the training techniques and equipment used.

Now, these are just basic skills that a trainer should have. To be a successful trainer, you should be able to demonstrate all of these qualities. Good trainers also have a great rapport with their clients. And their clients are happy and that’s why you hire them in the first place.

Finally, an average trainer is expected to have a degree in Exercise Physiology. But you shouldn’t be. A trainer should be able to demonstrate the knowledge and skills that we’ve discussed here. These qualities will make them worth every penny. And then some. Good luck in your journey to the top!


How to Choose a Good Trainer

How to choose a good trainer? The first thing you need to do is to be well informed about the trainers that you’re considering hiring. Do your homework on them so that you can make the best decision. For instance, you may be considering hiring a trainer who specializes in helping people to get into shape. This kind of trainer has to be well versed in the physiology of the human body, have experience in rehabilitating injured muscles and have knowledge of nutrition that will help you stick to your workout regimen. You must also look for a trainer who will understand you as a human being and not just rely on your looks.

How to get started on your new fitness regime: the best way to get started on your new regime is by inviting a trainer into your house. Have them warm up your muscles and warm your body up before you start your work out. Then you can do your cardio training after they’ve helped you stretch your muscles. Have a few days of stretching before your cardio training so that your body will respond to it properly. And even then, you can still get started on your new regime even without the instructor as long as you have a good plan in place and follow it religiously.
