Fitness weight loss programs follow the principle that exercise is the first key to effective weight loss. The infamous “fat camps” are one example of this, but the variety available today goes beyond that. The single common denominator they all possess is motion.
Exercise makes your metabolism rise over time, and when coupled with a healthy diet, it allows the body to consume excess calories which are stored as fat. Choose your fitness weight loss program with one idea in mind. You’ll need to like it and you’ll need to see yourself involved in such activities for years to come.
Those poor overweight people who take up running (and dislike it) or throw themselves into high stepping aerobics classes (and also dislike it) will not keep it up for very long and therefore will not realize any benefits from it whatsoever.
They will just recall how awful it is. Had those same individuals started by walking short distances or dancing, their perception would’ve changed. They would’ve considered their efforts as fun, and fun does make a difference.
If becoming overweight took time, so will becoming fit. Walking can in turn lead to running or hiking. Performing five pound dumbbell curls can lead to performing full free weight routines sometime. Cross-country skiing could be an Olympic event, but that does not mean you cannot enjoy a simple shuffle in the snow.
So your fitness program for losing weight requires only two things: fun and possibility over time. Does not that sound a lot more enjoyable already?
