Fitness Is A Marathon Not A Sprint

Fitness Is A Marathon Not A Sprint

The biggest mistake most people make when they are trying to get into shape, is they want to do it all at once.

They may have let themselves go for years, or even decades, and they wish to get their body back to the way it used to be, as quickly as humanly possible. They would be much better served, taking the attitude that fitness is a marathon, rather than a sprint.

In a sprint, you need to start quickly, right off the blocks. You should keep your pace up the entire time. In a marathon, you can make up for a slow start later on, well before the finish line. You need to pace yourself if you are going to make it to the finish line.

TOO MUCH TOO FAST

The problem is, most people start their fitness program with too much, too soon. It took them a long to get in their current condition. Getting out of it is also going to take quite a bit of time. As cliche as it sounds, it really is true, that it’s not about the destination. It’s all about the journey.

You’re done.” Fitness isn’t like that. You are never done. It’s a process of feeling better each day. Enjoy it. Don’t rush it.

If you are more than fifty pounds overweight, you are better off walking briskly instead of jogging. You’d be surprised how effective walking is, when you do it every day, or every other day.  You’re bones and joints will not been injured like they might if you were jogging.

Your muscles will not feel as beat up.  Your body will look forward to your daily exercise when you are taking the appropriate steps. As you lose weight and gain muscle, you can progressively increase the level of workouts. This way, you will stick with your fitness program as a lifestyle, instead of simply give it up after a few weeks.

Self-motivation and self-discipline are sometimes not enough to overcome some hurdles and break through training plateaus and that’s exaclty when the Aspire Club Bangkok comes into the picture. We provide support, we keep you accountable and we promise our training plans and nutrition programs won’t let you down.
