Part 3 – The Road to Fitness Success – Choose Your Fitness Products Wisely!

Now that you have created a burning desire to be fit, healthy and attractive, and have begun secretly conspiring to satisfy your desires, the obvious question becomes…

How?

There are so many different types of fitness products to choose from… all claiming to be your perfect fitness, health and physique solution.

* So many recommendations…

* So many famous personalities…

* So many advertisements…

But which fitness product will work best for you?

Here are some characteristics to look for when choosing a fitness product.

The more of these characteristics the fitness product has… the better the chance you will succeed in achieving your fitness, health and physique goals.

Your Physical Fitness Program Must Be… Effective

While this characteristic seems like a no-brainer… you would be surprised at just how many people are actively using a fitness product that will never give them the results they seek.

Many people say they want improve their level of fitness… and get a bodybuilding product.

Big muscles are not necessarily indicative of a high level of fitness.

Many people say they want to lose fat… and get an aerobic endurance product.

Aerobic training is only a part of the fat loss equation, and will not produce the lean, muscular, athletic body most people want… regardless of all the hard work. The point is, make sure the fitness product you choose is designed to get the results you want… or you are doomed to failure before you begin. If you want to increase fitness, improve health and develop an attractive physique… look for fitness products designed to produce these results.

Your Physical Fitness Program Must Be… Interesting

Let’s face it, if you are not interested in the fitness product you choose… you will not use it long enough to see results.

I don’t care if the fitness product was proven to work by thousands of scientific studies… it will have no positive effect on your fitness, health or physique if you don’t do it.

And you won’t do it… if it does not hold your attention and peak your interest.

No matter how many times you say…

“This time I’m not giving up until I get the results I want.”

… you will eventually give up if the fitness product is not interesting to you.

Don’t force yourself to struggle with a fitness product you hate… look for interesting fitness products that fit into your lifestyle and match your personality.

You should look forward to physical training… not dread it!

Your Physical Fitness Program Must Be… Modifiable

There is not one fitness product in existence that can be all things to all people… regardless of what all the slick-tongued advertisements say.

Fitness products must be modifiable to your goals, needs, abilities and limitations… you must be given a degree of freedom to make the physical fitness program uniquely your own.

You have different wants and needs.

You have different strengths and weaknesses needing specific attention.

You must be able to take an active role … Read More

How I Put Together My Home Gym

With so many possibilities for equipping a home gym where do you start? It really depends on the availability of space, your budget and what your trying to get out of your exercise program. For me, space was a concern and I was wanting to find exercise equipment that would provide an overall workout at a reasonable price. I was in an apartment but was living alone. After many hours of reviews I decided on purchasing an elliptical trainer. An elliptical trainer provides an excellent cardio, lower body workout, a decent upper body workout and there is no impact to your body. Many fitness trainers believe that you burn more calories on the elliptical than a treadmill. I bought a mid range machine that linked up with IFIT. IFIT provides electronic workouts that control your machine. It provides variety. I purchased a tape with a workout located in Hawaii. So as I exercise I actually take a hike through one of the Hawaiian islands. The only problem with my machine is that it does not have a motorized incline adjustment. I now believe that this is really an essential feature, if you can afford it.

The elliptical served my well for 6 years. I got remarried and moved into a larger house. My wife did not care for the elliptical. She found it hard to get used to it and she really liked treadmills. We decided to get a treadmill. After my experience with the elliptical, we bought a feature rich treadmill. One of the features I would highly recommend is a large motor. A high HP motor will pay for its self by providing many years of reliable service. The other feature to look for is a belt system that is comfortable to walk on. You really need to try different treadmills out before you buy one. You can do this in any major sports store. Bring your running shoes and try it out for 5 min at a time. We purchased one that folds up and rolls out of the way. We do not need that feature at this time however we will in the future. Right now the treadmill is in the foundation. We are going to finish the basement next year and plan on enclosing an exercise room. The room will be smaller than the area we currently have it in and its a great feature to fold it up out of the way providing more floor space for yoga or other floor exercises. Turns out that the treadmill gives a nice break from the elliptical. Again it provides variety, variety keeps you interested in exercising.

The only item missing from our home gym was weights. There were two choices, free weights or weight machine. We chose the weight machine. We purchased a gym quality weight system that provided just about every exercise that we could think of without having to change equipment in and out like the old machines I was used to. All you … Read More
