The Fall Of Most Workout Programs
We hear it a lot – Someone takes a gym membership and then lets it die without a whimper. Someone takes up a diet and then returns to gluttony the next weekend. Someone does a great deal of expensive shopping from big-name brands for morning routines and then wears the filthily expensive tracksuit for lounging around at home. This bug is all around us – People make grandiose plans to start health and workout programs and then let go of them at the drop of a hat. What goes wrong?
Once we get to hear about the lack of success in diets or gym programs all around us, normally it
isn’t their fault. Mostly it is the fault of the people who started with much fuss on going through these workout programs, spreading the word to their friends and loved ones about it, and then mostly they did not follow those programs all through to the end. The people who leave midway do not see the benefits, of course, and the commercial fitness enterprises lose their face.
What the world needs today isn’t a new health or workout program, but it needs motivation. It needs the right kind of mindset to follow through with whatever program they have chosen to the very end. If they can do that, most of the health problems that are related to lifestyle situations will become passé. And we don’t have to travel to the corners of the earth to find this motivation. The motivation lies right here, within us; we only need to search it and use it.
And this we need to do before even thinking of joining a health program. So once you see that a workout program has failed or is receiving too much of criticism, have in mind that the criticism isn’t most likely because the program stands on unstable ground. In most cases, it's because people began with very high intentions and then did not follow the program as they should have hence as a result ended up in such a position.
