Why Get Fit? Motivation for a fitness program
The modern lifestyle each person has to contend with has resulted in quite a number of problems
affecting both mental and physical health. People live their lives with only one goal in mind and
that is to produce more, earn more and consume more.
This has resulted in serious problems with the way people live their lives including the way they
choose the food that they eat as well as their daily physical activities.
People are so busy that they find it more practical to eat frozen food or fast food instead of
cooking sumptuous and healthy meals. People are so caught up with their jobs that they no longer
have much time for walking or for simple physical activities like a game of tennis or riding a bike.
A person who has weight problems should consider incorporating his physical activities with his
work or schedule. It is not easy to maintain a good fitness program but he has to prioritize first
And talking about first things first means knowing his priorities in life and what he has to do
to address and achieve those priorities. Once the priorities have been listed or known then it
would be easy to look for time to do those things despite a hectic schedule.
Set a goal. Make a plan. Commit!
A person can start a feasible home fitness program if he has the proper motivation for doing so.
Knowing the target and how important the target is makes a good start for any person. A person
should consider the negative and positive consequences of coming up with a home fitness program
and then implement that program seriously.
A person who has weight problems can get inspiration and motivation from many different venues.
A woman who wants to return to her ideal weight should focus on being vain first because no one
can resist vanity. She should think of the clothes that she would be able to wear if she is able
to achieve her target goal.
If that is not enough motivation then she should add health reasons to her vanity. Being healthy
should be the main concern of every person who wants to start with a home fitness program. But
being healthy is not just as attractive a motivation as being sexy is.
However, a person who goes on a home fitness program should always consider the limitations of her
body and her health when embarking on the program itself. It is better to be conscious of the health
concerns before one goes through an exercise and fitness program.
Motivation is just the start and the proper motivation can get a person past the planning and the
implementation of a very good home fitness program. The problem for most people is that they are
able to start a home fitness program but they have a problem keeping to that program.
Apparently, some people find it hard to start a home fitness program but most people find it even
harder to maintain a home fitness program. Motivation can also be explored to enable a person to
become consistent in what he does regarding his weight problem.
Keep it simple and be reasonable
It is better to start a simple home fitness program that can help in achieving minimal weight loss
for as long as he is consistent in his desire to keep the weight off. Why dream of an incredible
weight loss statistics when it could not be done consistently?
Any home fitness program that fits the schedule and the interests of a person would be good. The
problem is how to be motivated enough to be consistent in achieving the home fitness program that one
has initiated in the first place.
It would be better to choose home fitness equipment that would not be too rigorous for the person who
would be using them. Try buying home fitness equipment that would be easy to use and which will be
more fun to the one exercising rather than a burden.
To keep the person consistent in his home fitness program, he must choose a regular time every day or
every other day depending on his preferences, to do the exercises. Try to squeeze in even 15 minutes
or thirty minutes every day no matter how hectic the schedule becomes just so the person would already
treat the program as part of his daily regimen.
