If you Google “how to start a workout routine,” you’ll see some great advice and maybe some not so great advice.
We believe that the easiest advice to follow is the most effective advice.
For example, the Mayo Clinic has 5 steps for you:
1. Assess fitness level
2. Design program
3. Assemble Equipment
5. Monitor Progress
As coaches we buy into their advice but those five steps are really far from simple for the average person.
For example, most people don’t know how to assess fitness, and even fewer know how to design a program and monitor progress.
We use an InBody Composition Scan and benchmark workouts amongst other things.
And while you can start a program with minimal equipment, fitness equipment isn’t cheap. So if you buy anything, you want to make the right decision. But what do you buy? And is that “must have” gear actually the right thing for you?
Let’s be clear: We want you to start a fitness program today, and the most important thing is to be active. Start by moving regularly and then progressing over time. You can literally start with a short daily walk. Increase the distance a little every day, and you’ll see some progress!
But the Mayo Clinic list puts a lot of pressure on a person to research, plan, purchase and assess. That can be totally overwhelming! We know this because a lot of our current clients came to us after trying to start a program but becoming totally confused. Some even quit trying altogether before eventually calling us.
We’re going to simplify the Mayo Clinic list for you: All you have to do is work on Number 4. Just START! Simply show up!
Just start by coming to talk to us. That’s it. Forget all the other stuff that can get complicated. You’re in charge of Number 4 only. We’ve got everything else covered!
We Can Help You Start Working Out!
We are experts in assessing fitness level through the Level Method, designing programs and monitoring results. It’s what we do every day and we enjoy seeing people get results!
We also have all the equipment you’ll ever need. We can even help you with Number 4 because we can motivate you and inspire you. To be honest, that’s our real super power: making fitness fun. If something is fun you’re more likely to keep coming back for more!
What’s not fun is trying to figure it out on your own. Ever tried to change a tire, assemble a barbecue or create a spreadsheet without the right knowledge and tools? It can be very frustrating!
We promise to completely eliminate frustration and give you the perfect plan to help you accomplish your fitness goals—any fitness goals. We’ll even tell you how you’ll know you’re making progress—and how to speed things up.
The Mayo Clinic is 100% correct: “Starting a fitness program may be one of the best things you can do for your health.”
But you don’t have to figure out what to do and buy a bunch of gear that you might not even use after a couple of months. All you have to do is book an appointment to talk with us!
