Things i wish i knew before starting my fitness journey

If you’re looking to get fit for the first time, or you’ve been doing this for a while & are feeling ready to take your workouts up a notch, it is always a great idea to see a doctor before you start – they can give you a baseline for your health and may pick out any red flags specific to you. I know that this might seem like a no-brainer but it is something that people overlook time & time again.

Whether you’re a beginner at the gym or you’ve been doing this for awhile, it is always a good idea to have a training plan. Having a plan helps keep you accountable and ensures that you’re maximizing the benefits of your workouts. It also helps prevent overtraining & allows you to rest when necessary.

If you don’t have a training plan, there are plenty of resources out there that can help – search YouTube for a variety of workouts to try or check out a local studio and take a class! It’s a great way to learn proper form & get the most out of each session. It can also be helpful to bring a friend to the gym with you if it makes you feel more comfortable; they will likely be just as nervous as you are when they walk into that place for the first time, & you’ll find that most people are not as judgmental as you might think.

There’s this myth that you need to be a gym junkie or cut your calories drastically in order to make a change, and this is completely untrue! The key is to burn more than you are eating, and be consistent with your workouts.

It’s also important to remember that fitness is a journey, not a destination. It takes time to build strength & endurance, so it’s not realistic to expect results overnight. Don’t be discouraged by the slow progress; just keep moving forward & you’ll eventually get there.
