Most people who are a bit unfit and looking to lose a few pounds simply need to move a bit more.
Yes, there are certain types of exercise that may be more beneficial to you; and yes, some may be more effective than others for your goals; but for the most part, the key to success is consistency, and nothing will hinder your
consistency more than forcing yourself to do something you hate. It’s a relationship that will never last and will end in tears!
Some people do actually enjoy the gym, others hate it. You might hate it when you’re there but love the feeling you get when you’ve finished a workout (a good workout should be tough and or you’re probably not working hard enough – but it shouldn’t deter you from doing it or make you dread going). Some people enjoy running, others hate it.
Some people enjoy playing football, others hate it. …you get my point.
If all you need to do right now is clean up your diet and move a bit more, the BEST exercise you can do… is the exercise you WILL do. That being said, gyms are around for a reason and are probably the best place to go to work towards fitness goals.
Sometimes just running, or playing a couple of games of netball a week just aren’t the right thing to get you to your goals; but even then, a good workout should be one that you, for want of a better word, “enjoy”. There are so many options with regards to exercise selection that if there’s an exercise you really don’t like, you can find an alternative.Remember, you need to train consistently, not sporadically, to see the best results, and finding something you enjoy, or can at least tolerate with
some willpower is essential to your success.
You will need to work hard – don’t just pick something you think is easy and think that’s going to be enough. Whatever you choose, work hard at it, and strive to improve at it constantly.So think about what exercises you think you’d enjoy. Yes, the gym is preferable, but you need to find a routine that you don’t hate for that to work.
