Ask Yourself These Questions

No matter what level you are, you should ask yourself the following questions before beginning a weight loss routine...

Why:
You have to have a reason and it must be a strong enough reason to get your butt up and moving. 

For many people, they reach a breaking point where they are just sick and tired of being sick and tired!

For others, it may be seeing a picture of themselves and being shocked at how overweight they are...

for others, it might be seeing an old friend that you have not seen in years, and the first thing you hear them say, "Well, SOMEone has gained some weight!"

What’s YOUR WHY??  Once you know your Why, you can set some detailed goals!


What:
What type of exercise will you use to create a workout plan? Here are some examples:

Bodyweight exercises;
With weights and/or machines;
Popular programs such as P90X, Insanity, Zumba, etc.
Cardio options: walking/running; treadmill; elliptical machine, etc.

Combinations of the above: doing a fast paced circuit of exercises is a great way to work your muscles and get your heart rate up at the same time!


Where:
At home, in a gym, at the park with a friend, or a combination of any of these?


When:
It must fit in your schedule and at a time that you can COMMIT TO.  Many people like working out first thing in the morning…then it’s done and out of the way, plus it wakes you up and speeds up your metabolism for the rest of the day!
Others like working out during their lunch break or right after work.  What time works for YOU??


How much:
How many times per week (frequency)? How long will each session be – 20minutes? An hour?

Whatever your time commitment is, it should be a minimum of twice per week.  On the other hand, you don’t need to work out so much that you burn yourself out before you even start seeing results!
