Frequently Asked Questions
Why do so many people give up so soon after starting an exercise program?
I believe there are many reasons, some of which could be:
- Life gets busy and most people end up sacrificing their fitness program thinking they will start up again later when things settle down, however most don’t start up again.
- Lack of self-motivation to stick with it long enough for it to become a habit and viewed as a priority in their life.
- Many get brain washed into unrealistic goals such as achieving results in 60 to 90 days leading to unrealistic expectations of instant gratification. Ask yourself, how long did it take you to become 25 to 50 pounds or more over weight?
- Trying to do too much too fast, resulting in the mindset “OMG, this is so grueling”, leading most people to dread the workouts and eventually quit.
Which is Better, Joining a Gym or Using a Home Workout Program?
It may depend on your time, budget and personality. If you have more time in your schedule and can afford it, you may join a gym to get access to all the benefits a gym has to offer. You’ll have the extra commuting time you’ll have to fit into your schedule. If you are less self-conscious about your appearance, you may enjoy the social aspects a gym has to offer.
If you are tight on time and budget, and like your privacy, then a home workout program may be better for you. You can workout on your own schedule at home without needing to commute to a gym. Gym memberships usually have an initiation fee plus the monthly fee that an range anywhere from 20 to 50 bucks for an annual cost of $240 to $600, plus the initial sign up fee and extra gas for commuting.
A good comprehensive home workout program can cost you $50 to $150 that includes DVDs and a guide.
Some may afford both, and perform the home workouts at the gym and enjoying the social aspects of the gym as well.
Why do Many People Fail With Dieting?
I believe if you try to go on an extreme diet that is very restrictive from what your body needs to function, it will be nearly impossible to stick with it. Our bodies were designed to need energy through calorie consumption, and there are many foods on this earth we can eat to meet our needs. A good balanced strategy is to eat a group of healthy foods you enjoy, which meet your body’s energy needs. Many of these recently invented diets (i.e. Atkins) are restrictive and can actually be very dangerous to your health.
How do I stay motivated
I believe the key to staying motivated for weight loss is to understand all of the benefits of being fit. It is more than just looking good. Its also about:
- Being health on the inside
- Saving money on medical costs
- Higher self-esteem
- Functioning better physically (yard work, fun activities, keeping up with your kids)
- Functioning better sexually
- A positive influence to those around you
These can all be powerful motivators to many, and you may have other reasons important to you. Write down what motivates you and tape it to your bathroom mirror, so you see them everyday first thing in the morning. I did this and it’s a great reminder. Keep your eye on the goal!
