Best Home Workout Programs
Source: flickr.com/97481684@N08/It's little wonder so many people resolve each year to lose weight, eat better, get stronger and treat their bodies better. When you're healthy, you feel better, look better, and are all around more happy.
But maintaining a good physique isn't necessarily easy, especially as we get older. There are a lucky few who are able to stay fit simply by living their daily lives. The rest of us, however, have to put forth an effort.
Too often, this is something we don't do until there is a problem. Maybe you're looking in the mirror and you don't like what you see. Maybe you are participating in an loved activity and realizing you have lost a step and can't keep up. And maybe it has come to the point where a poor physique is actually affecting your health and quality of life.
Regardless of their motivation, come January 1st people flock to their local gyms in hopes of making this year a better one. But this crowd quickly dissipates as the year progresses and it doesn't seem to be because people are reaching their goals and living happily ever after. Instead, it appears that people are getting discouraged and giving up. And it's not just the people in gyms who spent the first few months of the year aimlessly trying out the various machines at the gym and not seeing results. Millions more have treadmills, exercise bikes, dumbbells, and other home gym equipment purchased with the best of intentions that often times ends up being a high priced clothes hanger.
Why is this? Why do so many people fail at achieving their new year's resolution to get in shape?
Part of it may be that working out is just that, work - and work is hard. But that doesn't appear to be a complete explanation. Most people will work extremely hard if they believe it is worth it. And what reward is better than a trim and strong physique? Instead, a better explanation may be that people get discouraged by a lack of results. Granted, it takes time to make a difference in your body, but if you don't know what you are doing when you work out, results may come at a snail's pace if at all.
In order to get the best results in the shortest amount of time, you need to work out properly. For some, this means signing up for sessions with a personal trainer, but at $50+ an hour, this can be prohibitively expensive. More and more often, people are avoiding the gym altogether turning to home workout programs.
Unlike the aerobics videos on the past, today's home workout programs are more complete fitness solutions. Many feature multiple routines, diet plans, online interactivity and more. There are no magic weight loss potion and you will have to work, but know that if you select a quality workout routine and put forth the effort, you will see results, and you will see them quickly.
