Developing Fitness Goals – Foxboro, MA

Developing Fitness GoalsNow that we are a month into the New Year, some of those fitness-related resolutions may have gone by the wayside.

Most of the time, the problem is trying too hard to reach unrealistic fitness goals too quickly.

It is important to set realistic expectations for a reasonable time frame. Take running. Although many look at mileage and time splits as a measure of fitness, it's better for people who have been sedentary for a while to ease into it.

You don't want to run to get into shape; you want to get into shape to run. You have to start by training and cross-training, gentle warm-ups and stretching.

Lower-impact exercises might include biking, swimming and using an elliptical trainer. In addition to starting with lower-impact activities, it's important to increase activity slowly, adding about 10% duration at a time.

However, it is also important to be aware of and acknowledge one's body's limitations.

Pain does not always mean gain. There are a number of warning signs that it might be time to see a doctor, including a traumatic injury, large swelling within the joints, limited range of motion, instability in a joint or any mechanical problems such as catching, locking or popping.

The truth is, exercise is a complicated business and there are a number of things that can affect your success. Knowing what those are will help you set realistic fitness goals and get the most out of your time spent at the gym.

Fitness goals need to be realistic and attainable. For help in creating fitness goals, contact Answer is Fitness.
