Whether you are using resistance training, yoga, pilates, aerobic fitness training or one of the many methods to get fit and lead a healthier life there is one important ingredient that you must have and that is a personalized fitness program.
No two people have the same requirements to reach their optimum health and this has to be represented in the choice of fitness program and even within that choice of the specific actions that are necessary.
By this I mean that, if for instance you choose resistance training for your fitness program, you will need a personalized program of exercises that will suit your body type, the condition of your health, your time restraints and so forth.
The same will apply to a yoga program. While you might join a yoga class for your preferred form of exercise, you will need to place more emphasis on those exercises that will assist the areas of your body that need help the most.
The reason for this need to have a personalized program is simply because you will want to get the best results in the shortest time to get to a good level of health and fitness without losing motivation.
There is nothing less motivating than a lack of progress and that is precisely what will happen if you don’t have a fitness program that addresses all your needs.
There are programs that will serve as the basis for the majority of people but they will need to be adjusted and modified to personal requirements.
Keeping a fitness diary will help as it will show which areas are progressing well and where changes will need to be made to get more improvement.
The information from the data that you record will be the source of your fast track to health and fitness.
