Fitness weight loss programs follow the principle that exercise is the primary key to effective weight loss. The infamous “fat camps” are one example, but the variety available today goes far beyond that. The one common denominator they all possess is motion.
Exercise raises metabolism over time, and when coupled with a sensible diet, allows the body to consume excess calories stored as fat. Choose your fitness weight loss program with one thing in mind. You need to like it and you need to see yourself involved in such activities for years to come.
Those poor overweight souls who take up running (and hate it) or throw themselves into high stepping aerobics classes (and hate it) won’t do it very long and therefore will not realize any benefits from it whatsoever. They’ll just recall how awful it is. Had those same individuals started with walking short distances or dancing a bit, their perception would have changed. They would have considered their efforts as fun, and fun makes all the difference.
Becoming overweight took time. So will becoming fit. Walking can lead to running or hiking. Performing five pound dumbbell curls can lead to performing full free weight routines one day. Cross-country skiing may be an Olympic event, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a simple shuffle in the snow.
Your fitness weight loss program, then, only requires two things: fun and doability over time. Doesn’t that sound a lot more enjoyable already?
