1. Know What Program You Are Joining
I am always impressed when a person is knowledgeable about our company. Many times we have clients who have read our articles, went to our website, and spoken with a few of our clients before trying out a class. This is great because they already have an understanding of how our program operates and what they will achieve from the program. By doing research and visiting various fitness facilities, you will have the knowledge needed to make educated decisions concerning your health.
2. Know That You Most Likely Have Imbalances
Over the years, I have learned that many “fitness instructors” do not test their clients for imbalances before placing them in a training program. Well, what do you think happens next? Yes, you guessed it: injury.
A good training program should address, core strength, range of motion, joint stabilization, myofascial tissue integrity, and structural integrity. These “key areas” must be reviewed before moving forward in any type of resistance training. I have heard of many fitness companies injuring people because they do not assess imbalances. We have actually integrated exercises for imbalances as well as a variety of other modalities of resistance training in our program. Addressing these areas of imbalance has not only helped us prevent injuries, but allows us to build upon a stronger foundation.
3. Know What Goals You Want To Reach
This is a big key in attaining success in your program. I often see people in the wrong programs because they have not thought about the specific criteria needed to reach their fitness goals. Usually these individuals end up wasting time and money on programs that do not fit their fitness goals.
If your goal is fitness maintenance, then you should be able to reach your goal by joining a local gym. More complicated goals will require more steps and a more advanced program to completing your goal. For example, if you need help with fitness training, nutritional guidance, goal setting, and accountability you will need a well qualified fitness instructor to help you reach those goals. Goal setting is essential to long term success in your program.
To reach your fitness goals follow these 5 simple steps: 1.Write down your goals. 2. Outline the steps to achieving your goals. 3. Take action. 4. Track your progress. 5. Make new goals.
