The Three Needs of a Training Plan

Today’s post concerns the overwhelming number of training programs and how to decide which one is right for you. There are rarely binary yes/no answers when comparing programs.  There are reasons to do Crossfit, to stress the importance of yoga and to avoid the gym altogether. The following are a few definitives when deciding on how to pursue your health goals.

You Will Feel Better After Training

While some truly enjoy the feeling of soreness, this is directed more towards people training with injuries, chronic pain or battling mental stress. Does your program leave you feeling better about your body and your mind? If it doesn’t, seek alternatives.

You & Your Program Align

If you’re training to build muscle and look like Dwayne Johnson, your hot yoga training may need to be supplemented with some additional exercise. This isn’t to say that yoga isn’t good for you. It simply wouldn’t be designed for your goals. Most people don’t understand the true “goal” behind their program and even less people have an accurate depiction of their own goals. Finding goal synchronization between you and your program is essential to long-term success.

Your Training Plan Gets You Excited

The idea of “earning’ your food and relaxing time has long-since been abolished. If your training program leaves you dreading getting out of bed in the morning. Change it and find something that makes you ready to go from the start. Contrary to popular belief, your training and exercise program is on your side. It wants to do what you want to do! Unless you’re a lazy bum. If that’s you. Get up and try some programs.

Training doesn’t have to be the bane of your existence. If you are struggling to stick to your program, assess these three needs and see if your program is doing you justice.
