How do you Select the Right Exercising Program?

posted on 5 February 2013 | posted in Exercise

The health and fitness industry is probably the most saturated industry in the world today. Part of the reason for that is people try out one program and then fail because of their own lack of determination and then think the program is worthless and try another. What the health and fitness industry doesn’t tell people on their face is that they are failing mostly because they are not able to resolve themselves to stick to one program. They will probably fail with this one too because their minds are rolling stones, but it doesn’t matter because presently they are spending thousands of dollars on buying their products.
It works that way. But the fact is that the industry is saturated. So what do you do when you are looking at a program for yourself? If it is a health treatment program, your choice is simpler. You just go to a doctor that you have faith in – usually your family physician – and then do as they say. But the issue is very much complicated if you are looking for a viable fitness program. What do you use to stay fit – diet, exercise, aerobics, calisthenics, what?
Researching on the Internet is not the answer. What you will find mostly is articles full of sales pitch, written by people who are trying to promote their own product. They won’t have any qualms in painting some other perfectly good product with a negative color if they can improve the impression of their own product. The world gobbles it, so it works.
Now, if you want to choose a program, the best thing you could do is to head to your nearest bookstore. You should first narrow your choices to two or three fitness programs that really interest you. It is great if you get to speak to some people who have used the programs you are contemplating on and who have absolutely no commercial interests whatsoever in promoting what they are doing. Join a health and fitness club. This is a great place to meet people who are conscious about their fitness and they won’t mind giving you great advice. Fitness clubs have their own libraries too, so you could find a lot of educational material in them.
When you get the books on what you are thinking about, take time out and read them. Read them mainly to understand what you will have to do, how much time you will have to devote, what equipment you will need, whether you will be able to do what is mentioned, what the results will be and how soon you will get them, etc. These facts will help you decide whether you want to be with the program.
Don’t trust anybody when it comes to deciding a fitness program for you. Most people will have commercial interests. Some well-meaning souls will give you advice too, but they may be limited in their knowledge. It is best to speak with impartial experts, like your doctor, well consultant or health coach and form an initial decision. Of course, you need to speak with a qualified person before making your eventual decision about what program to take.
