Why The Perfect (For You) Workout Does Exist & How To Find It

The new year is a popular time to commit to new health and fitness programs. If you’ve been swept up into the “new year, new me” craze, you might be trying to figure out what kind of workout program will help you reach your goals. Although you may want to choose a challenging program that promises total transformation, stop and think before you commit.  

While there is a time and a place for intense fitness programs that will have you spending hours in the gym, depending on your lifestyle and fitness level that may actually do more harm than good. It’s important to find a program that meets you where you’re at. In this article, we are going to help you set fitness goals that are realistic for you.

Understand Your Baseline

 Before you embark on any new fitness routine, it’s important to understand your starting point.

Have you been working out off and on, but you just need a reset or to up the intensity to break through a plateau? Are you a complete workout novice? Do you want to switch up your training from something like yoga to strength training?

 Your baseline of fitness matters when you are changing things up or starting something new because it gives you important indicators as to what type of program will be successful for you.


If you’ve never worked out before, working out 5 days a week is probably going to be too much to start out with. On the flip side, if you already exercise several days a week you will want to make sure you stick with the same level of activity or even consider increasing it depending on your goals.


Make a Realistic Plan


Just because you see people on social media get results from a high-intensity 12-week program, it’s important to consider whether that will fit into your lifestyle. There are countless workout programs out there that will give you results, and there is one for everyone.


Don’t feel the pressure to do what everyone else is doing if it doesn’t work for you. Decide how many days per week and how many minutes per day you can realistically commit to working out. Be honest with yourself so that you set yourself up for success from the start. It helps to have a qualified personal trainer design a program for you.


Start with a plan you know you can achieve because the momentum from your completed workouts will keep you going when it gets tough. Even if you know you can only do 3 days a week for 30 minutes, make that commitment and stick to it.


If you know that 3 days is all you can do but you commit to 5-6 days a week because you feel like you “should”, you are setting yourself up for disappointment. Acknowledge your lifestyle, work schedule, personality, and level of commitment when you are selecting a plan and make sure it’s realistic for you.


Be Patient


Reaching your fitness goals takes time. It may be weeks or even months before you see the results of the hard work you are putting in with your new fitness program. This is where it’s important to understand why you started and commit to the long-term goals of overall better health.


Set mini-milestones along the way to help keep your motivation high. Acknowledge and reward yourself for losing the first 5 or 10 pounds or when you are strong enough to go up in weight during your workouts. Don’t let these small achievements slip by without recognizing them.
