Some Things About Fitness You Should Know

No matter how much you think you know your fitness regime, there is always a chance that you might not be doing something correctly.
And this is more likely when you exercise unsupervised. Some women work out for months without really gaining any ground when it comes to losing weight.

Here is what you should know when you think of exercising:

1. Dont get frustrated if you see no results in the first few weeks and stop. Every woman is built differently and what might work for one might not work for another. Hence, be patient. If youre unsure about it, ask a trainer in your gym, a friend who has knowledge about fitness or check online. The internet has a treasure box of information.

2. Dont hesitate to change your workout regime if it isnt working for you. By trying out different exercise routines, you wont just figure out what works for you, youll also figure out what you like doing best.

3. If youre just starting to workout or are about to workout after a gap, start slowly. Ease yourself into your routine instead of throwing yourself headlong into it. While your body will feel sore the first couple of days, eventually it will get used to this new regime.

4. What you have after your workout is very important.
Instead of a cup of coffee, sip on water. And just because you think youve burned hundreds of calories, doesnt mean you can eat high calorie foods. Stick to a simple sandwich after a workout or a cup of yogurt.

5. If you regularly use the treadmill or the elliptical trainer, dont hold on to them while using them! That is a major mistake. It will not help you burn as many calories that you ideally should be burning. And dont assume that weights will give you unsightly muscles. Ask your trainer to suggest the
appropriate weights according to your fitness goal.

6. Dont forget to stretch your body before as well as after your workout. This will ensure that you dont injure yourself while you exercise.

7. Lastly, dont have unrealistic expectations. Allow yourself time to reach your fitness goal and give yourself a break every now and then.

Finally, if your fitness program doesn't really work for you, remember you can change to something else.
