5 Ways to Choose the Best Workout Program for You

Finally decided to take control of your health and follow a fitness plan? Congratulations! It’s time to choose the best workout program for you. The first step to turning your life around is deciding you want to. Now that you’ve done the first step, there’s an entire journey waiting for you. And while it may seem easy, it’s not as simple as it sounds. But don’t worry, that’s what I’m here for. I’ll help you decide on the right workout plan for you. A common question I’m always asked is if you should follow a fitness plan that you deep down hate, but have heard a lot of success stories. Others have asked me if trying out celebrity workout trends is worth it. The short answer to these questions is no. When it comes to choosing the best workout program, remember that many things come into play. For starters, you don’t have…

How to turn a “diet” into fitness goals

Let’s face it! Anyone can lose weight! However, most of us have difficulty developing healthy eating habits which are long lasting. A “diet” lasts only for a while…the question is how do you learn to eat healthy and maintain a fitness lifestyle nutrition? What is a nutrition regime that supports your fitness goals and helps you be strong and sexy? If your goal is only losing weight, all that is required is for you to reduce your calorie intake (How much should I eat for weight loss? ) However, this is not going to be an effective solution for building muscle, toning, shaping and feeling your best.

In our day to day life we come across numerous theories about dieting and workouts. Most of these are based on science and observation. Some are just another fad and nothing more that a well-marketed idea. Regardless, I find that all of these methods don’t take into account something extremely important: The human factor! Fitness is one of the sciences studying the human body, however I find that our knowledge to date is far behind.

Functions and connections which science hasn’t found yet, proved or demystified. Our minds or phycology would be one of these unexplored areas.

My Top 5 Lean Secrets

Many of my friends say that life is not fair, when they look at me eating a whole pizza, while they really struggle to maintain a lean figure eating tiny portions of food and punishing themselves with dieting. They tell me that I’m lucky and the truth is I feel blessed in a way. I’ve always been a calories burning machine tending to lose weight easily (don’t hate me!). Being by default lean, I never had to worry about gaining weight really. I used to think that I’m just this kind of person that I can eat as much as I can, and I was just taking it for granted. I haven’t realized until recently what was the secret of my success, I never thought about it much. Definitely I don’t eat pizza every day! I do enjoy good nutritious food and I eat a lot, but I also train…
