So there are many ways to get in shape, whether you want to fit into your old clothes when you were slimmer to literally being in the best shape of your life, and even more. The truth of the matter is what exactly do you see your ideal body? Do you see yourself doing handstands in Yoga? Bench Press over 150 lbs and/or stacks 45lb plates on each side from the already heavy 45lbs press bar? The typical, “I just wanna look good before the summer hits” phrase? All these wonderful goals do have one thing in common, what exactly do you want to get out of a fitness program and is it enjoyable to stick to it in the long run? You have to ask yourself these questions. “What do I want to accomplish?” “Do you want to lose weight and gain muscle? Are you ready to go through the pain and change your diet to get there? How fast and strong will I take my body?
There are absolutely so many fitness programs to think of, its endless. Yoga, Circuit training, Calisthenics, Weight-Lifting, Martial Arts, and general sports are categories we are gonna to focus on this blog since I am currently training on the first 5 I listed. However, you never know, I might be a golf player and call it a day. You can train with a personal trainer (interview soon with mine), train at your very own home, or find a group of people to motivate you to go a gym since science proves that you get to your ideal goal more significantly with a group of people. Spend some money on buying the essentials first so not only you deck out your gym with gear, but motivates you to stay on that mindset in some way. Invest in a good pair of running and/or walking shoes, dumbbells, gym clothes, exercise mat, and a water bottle/gym bag. Other than that, be ready, you got one life.
