Exercise Crazes

30 Mar

Good morning. I’m going to let everyone in on a little secret. You are more than welcome to share this with everyone you know, because I don’t think people have figured this out by now. If you exercise, IT WILL WORK. Whether it is Zumba, P90x or the newest Insanity, if you’re body is moving around, and you’re burning more calories than you take in, you WILL lose weight. It’s so funny to me how everyone jumps at the chance to begin a brand-new fitness routine, thinking it will be the solution to all of their weight loss problems. I’m not saying that all work outs are created equal; however, if you are a person who only works out for the 2 weeks following a new craze…you’re probably not going to have lasting success. We all need to be realistic and know that there probably won’t ever (at least in our lifetimes) be a quick and easy fix for weight loss, at least without causing any adverse effects on our health. If you want to lose weight, or gain muscle, or improve your heart, your first priority should be attempting to make it a habit first. Once you get into a regular routine of exercising, THEN you can begin to tailor it to whatever your needs may be. So how about instead of spending WAY too much money on something that will have cobwebs on it by December, try to get outside and move. I promise, if you begin running or walking and actually stick with it….it works too.
