If you Google “how to start a workout routine,” you’ll see some great advice and maybe some not so great advice.
We believe that the easiest advice to follow is the the most effective advice.
For example, the Mayo Clinic has five steps for you:
1. Assess fitness level.
2. Design program.
3. Assemble equipment.
5. Monitor progress.
As coaches we really buy into their advice but those five steps are really far from simple for the average person.
For example, most people don’t know how to assess fitness, and even fewer know how to design a program and monitor progress.
(we use an InBody Body composition scanner and benchmark workouts amongst other things for this).
And while you can start a program with minimal equipment, fitness equipment isn’t cheap. So if you buy anything, you want to make the right decision. But what do you buy? And is that “must have” gear actually the right thing for you?
Let’s be clear: We want you to start a fitness program, and the most important thing is to be active. Get moving regularly first and then progress over time. You can literally start with a short daily walk. Increase the distance a little every day, and you’ll see some progress!
But the Mayo Clinic list puts a lot of pressure on a person to research, plan, purchase and assess. That can be overwhelming! We know this because a lot of our current clients came to us after trying to start a program but became totally confused. Some even quit trying altogether before eventually calling us.
We’re going to simplify the Mayo Clinic list for you: All you have to do is work on Number 4, Start!
