When you want a successful women’s fitness program, the first thing you must do is plan your workout. It must fit into your lifestyle if it is ever going to work for you. It can’t just happen on its own; you are one who must make it work and the only way to ensure that is to make a plan for your workout.
If you plan to go to the gym or play tennis three times a week, you must record it on your calendar, arrange for a time that you will do your activity and then plan the rest of your schedule around your workout. Now, that may be different than anything you have ever done. Planning your schedule around your workout. But if you want to be successful and make women’s fitness a permanent part of your life, then you have to make it as important as going to work. You must be committed, dedicated and believe that this is something that is vital to your health and longevity.
When planning your workout, be sure to challenge your skills by setting goals for yourself. You can make short term goals like adding more reps or sets and you can make longer term goals for more intense training like adding circuits.
The important thing is to make a plan, and one way to help you make and keep that plan of action is to keep a fitness journal. Journaling helps to bring about positive changes in your life by making you accountable for everything you eat and drink and the amount of energy expended to burn calories and fat.
After a long hard day, going to the gym might be the last thing you want to do. This is why planning your workout is so important, especially if your goal is to lose weight and get in shape. For many of us, losing weight and staying fit lifestyle changes that we want to make permanently. Planning your workout in advance is one way of ensuring that you stick with these goals.
Record your plan in writing and make several copies. Attach one to the refrigerator, put one in your purse and take another one to work with you. Like any other important activity, if you want to make exercise work for you, you must treat it with respect and make it a priority in your life. Make plans today to begin planning your workout for tomorrow, it’s that sort of commitment that will help you achieve your goals.
