Ready to begin your journey to a new you? Fantastic! If you’re feeling nervous, overwhelmed, maybe even apprehensive, don’t worry, that’s entirely normal.
Whatever the reason is that you’re interested in pursuing a new level of health and fitness, the important thing to understand is it is a steady transition towards a new lifestyle. Too many people expect drastic changes, so they resort to drastic measures to achieve results as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, they get burned out, frustrated, and often times even injured, which leads them give up entirely because their new lifestyle is simply too hard.
The human body doesn’t usually respond well to drastic changes; why would fitness be any different? Approach your goals wisely. Challenge your body, don’t damage it. There are a lot of great diet and workout plans out there, but most are designed for moderate to advanced fitness levels. If you’re not sure how to approach a healthier lifestyle, please talk to your doctor, physical therapist or personal trainer.
