Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/09/2013 -- There is no shortage of fitness myths, and many trainers are surprised how many are constantly perpetuated and believed by their clients. To dispel fact from fiction, below are a few fitness assumptions and myths that many believe to be true but are really holding them back.
Weight Loss can Only Come from a Gym Membership – While daily workouts at a gym can be important, it’s estimated that 80 percent of fitness success actually happens at home rather than the gym. If a person spends one hour a day exercising, but the remaining 23 hours lounging or over-indulging, that work is wasted. Weight loss is a whole lifestyle approach, which must include regular activity during non-gym hours, proper nutrition, adequate sleep and hydration to make it a successful endeavor.
Cardio is the Best Way to Lose Weight – while cardio is essential for calorie burn and heart health, the body cannot build muscle unless a form of strength or resistance training is added to a workout regimen. Muscle burns more calories and takes up less space than fat, which means a combination of strength training and cardiovascular activity are going to maximize the results of a total workout and how the body loses weight.
All Fitness Programs are the Same – What works for one person may not work for another as every body is different. Just as some need more carbs to function and others need more protein, one may have massive success in losing weight with just running and another may lose interest when the success doesn’t happen for them. Finding a program that a person can stay committed to and enjoy is more important than staying with trends or trying what is “guaranteed to work for everyone.”
These are just a few, but starting by dispelling these hopefully some of the other myths out there will become legends and the populous as a whole can move forward together to more advanced fitness education and healthier lifestyles.
