In this blog post I want to highlight five common fitness failures. They're failings I've made, my clients make, and I'm sure you've dropped the ball on a couple yourself -- but they are failings we can control, even if it might prove challenging.
You don't necessarily need to go to the gym to lose weight and get healthy. Here are some simple changes we can make today to our daily lives to help burn extra calories without the hassle or anxiety that comes with a gym session.
As you can see, a workout to improve sports performance is a bit more complex than a weight-loss workout. But when implemented properly, it can not only help you run faster, jump higher, and push harder, but also keep you from getting injured.
Unlike solitary exercise on a machine or weight lifting, taking classes often makes going to a health club a social event. You can do a couple of things to help decide whether a specific exercise class will be right for you.
Fine-tune exercise accordingly so that while your program remains challenging, you avoid overdoing it. Set yourself up for success by establishing a routine that works for you and that includes proper nutrition, adequate rest and sufficient water intake.
Whether the issue is working out at the gym or continuing a business practice, we're creatures of habit. And there's nothing wrong with habits -- they can keep us on track. The problem is when habits become "dead zones," void of mindfulness and awareness.
