New Year more and more people join gyms, hire trainers and begin diets.
The resolution warriors can be seen as early as mid-December each Winter.
They come in four to five times a week, meet with their trainer two
or three times a week and attempt to follow a flawed diet destined for
the short term. Dont be mistaken, all of these fitness hopefuls
are well intentioned. However, they are also misinformed. Thats
why by March or, at
best, April, 95% of these individuals can no longer be found exercising.
unfortunate part of this scenario is that if these same people were
plugged into a proper program, in the time it took them to quit (three
to four months), they could have already been in shape. Therefore, with
the new millennium upon us, forget the resolutions and begin a reformation.
This article is needed now more than ever because of overwhelming amounts
of literature, supplements and exercise programs that have come and
percentage of Americans who suffer from obesity continues to rise by
leaps and bounds. Therefore, it is imperative that someone in the Health
and Fitness Community steps forward and reveals to the general public
the truth of what is involved in obtaining long-term and permanent health
and fitness. The Health and Fitness Community has failed in its attempt
to educate and implement appropriate diet and exercise programs for
the American public. Everyone wants to get into shape and be fit, but
the basic framework to succeed has been glossed over by the ever sympathetic
and enabling professionals in the industry.
Health and Fitness industry is a multi-billion dollar cash cow. The
profiteers in our industry have turned their focus away from the masses
and are no longer providing the hard truths on how to get and remain
in shape, nor have they ever. Rather, its focus has been turned inward
towards a better income. This basic framework has probably been listed
in part or entirely numerous times in periodicals, newspapers and even
medical journals over the last 10 years. Therefore, the question is,
Why are we, as a society, becoming more obese? The answer
is simple...we need to accept the fact that there are no shortcuts to
obtaining health and fitness. The one thing that we all leave out of
the formula is time.
with the proper program we should be able to obtain excellent health
and fitness. By coupling an effective exercise program with a diet plan
that allows the body to increase its lean muscle mass, better condition
will develop and a noticeable increase in health and energy levels will
be realized. The program should provide for both resistance and cardiovascular
training as well as effective stretching techniques.
