by: Darren O Connell
Wow it's the start of a new year again so it's time to make another effort at kicking bad habits and taking on good habits
such as: joining a Gym to get fit and lose a few pounds. When most people join a gym, motivation runs high for the first couple of months and it's great, but then they start to lose interest, this usually happens around March or April, some times sooner. People get tired of doing the same old routine with little or no results. Boredom overtakes and they quit. There are a few secrets to maintaining a successful training program:
1. There must be a plan of action based on the personâ€™s goals
2. Progress must be tracked and logged.
3. The program must be interesting and appealing.
4. It must be changed every 4 to 6 weeks for greater results and the keep its appeal.
Many people who are new to the fitness scene follow the same training routine day in day out for a couple of months and then give up in despair.
So what is the solution?
