Staying in shape is hard, something that can be seen widely across this country. With only around one third of all American adults considered to be at a healthy weight as of the current date, obesity has become a national crisis in children and adults alike. And while much of this can certainly be attributed to a lack of healthy eating – after all, fast food restaurants have doubled in prominence over the course of the last few decades – a lack of exercise is also the culprit of so many people in poor or worsening health with complications likely to develop if they haven’t already.
After all, only about one third of all kids are actually getting the recommended daily amount of exercise. With children spending up to seven and a half hours looking at and using screens of various natures, exercise has all too easily fallen by the wayside. And adults are not much better, with only a mere 5% exercising even just half of an hour on a daily basis and less than half of the adult population of Americans getting the recommended weekly amount of exercise.
What can we do to combat this? The answer is simple, and it’s to incorporate more venues for exercise into the daily life o the typical person. First, however, it is important to discuss WHY people don’t exercise, as most people are certainly not happy being unhealthily overweight and would like to change this fact. For one thing, many people simply don’t have the time.
For these people, working out from home might be the option. From slow motion strength training to weight lifting, much of the exercise you can do at your typical gym can be done in a home environment. If you visit any local fitness store, you’re likely to see a wide variety of exercise machines and exercise equipment available to buy for your very own space. This can save people a good deal of money in the long run, especially if they use this equipment regularly.
But some people don’t work out simply because they do not know how. For such people, one on one training is likely to be more than ideal, as one on one training allows the instructor to dedicate all of their time to this client. For people who are self conscious about working out in front of others, one on one training provides them with a greater ability to focus away from their fears and more seriously on the task at hand.
Fortunately. the rise of personal training has allowed one on one training methods to become more accessible than truly every before here in the United States. Personal trainers are available at almost every gym, and they can work with you to develop the right workout routine for your body. It’s important to note that what works for one person might not really work for someone else, so it is critical to listen to your body and discuss your needs as they arise in your one on one training session.
And one on one training can be beneficial for just about everyone. For instance, weight training for seniors has become popular recently, with many a senior (someone who is at or over the age of 6%) enjoying one on one training on a regular basis. It’s never to late to try to get into shape, no matter how old or young or large or small you might be. As one on one training will show you, your body is likely capable of much more than you realize.
Of course, you’ll first need to find the gym that meets your needs as sometimes even the best gyms will not. The right gym will, as is necessary, be in the right price range. While it’s sometimes incredibly worth it to pay a little bit extra for a high quality experience, you still don’t want to experience any financial discomfort because of your gym fees. In addition to this, you’ll want to look for a gym that provides personal training services, as it is this that can allow a novice gym goer the one on one training that they likely need quite drastically.
