The Key to Sticking to Your Fitness Plan
You have made the decision to get fit.  This may be because you want to lose weight or simply to gain strength, tone up and to increase your fitness level generally, but you find that you continually start and then stop your fitness plan.  So what is the key to sticking to your exercise regime?

If you haven’t exercised for a long time, remember to take it slowly at first and then build up.

Also little and often is the key to increasing your level of fitness.  Increase your routine as the days and weeks go by and you will reap the rewards.

If your goal is to tone up it could take six weeks or more to see an improvement in your body shape and even more time to see significant change.  So sticking to your routine and being patient is one important factor; the same if you are trying to lose weight.  Try to keep away from the ‘quick fixes’ being offered.  It is inviting to think that weight loss pills or keep fit gadgets work instantaneously, but don’t be fooled.  As they say ‘a fool and his money are quickly parted’!  If you keep your eye on the goal and see all the tiny improvements as a step towards achieving that desired goal, before you know it time will have passed and the patience you exercised will be rewarded.

Many people join gyms with every intention of sticking to a routine.  They may even be locked into a six month membership, and having spent considerable money, they keep focussed for only a few weeks as it becomes harder to maintain the effort that it takes to even get to the gym, especially after a hard day’s work!

Also there is the added complication if you start off too fast and work out too many times and get sore muscles so have to stop the routine.  Once this has happened it can often be hard to restart and that is the end of  your fitness plan.  

So what is the key to sticking to a fitness routine?  You may have some equipment at home e.g. a treadmill, rebounder, exercise bike or even exercise videos.  If not, there is swimming, walking and cycling etc.  I think you will agree that if you can follow your routine at home, at least at first, you will probably stick to it.  You will be able to build up your programme gradually and incorporate new challenges to your routine.  You will find starting your fitness routine at home will be easier because you will be able to fit it around your day.

Once your fitness plan is established and it becomes a habit, you may decide that now is the time to expand your routine to include a gym a couple of times a week.  Hence your fitness routine is now firmly established so your end goal is now firmly fixed in your mind and success is yours for the taking.
