Lots of people are hitting the gym on a regular basis but still they don’t see they are losing weight. That’s right, not all people who go to the gym actually get success in achieving the right body for them. There are several reasons why and today you’re about to find out.
According to a fitness professional and personal trainer Nadia Norman (also an author of Fat Attack: The Secrets Behind The World’s Biggest Loser), one of the many reasons this happen is because some people just go to the gym without a training plan.
You can’t exactly just hit the treadmill while reading a book and watching TV as you work your way there. If that’s the case, might as well do it on your couch with a good book. If you want to see results, rigorous training must be done. If your muscles are not contracting, then you are doing things wrong and it doesn’t matter if you are enrolled in a very expensive gym membership.
It is important to have a workout plan and this is why people pay extra for trainers. Doing it willy-nilly will lead you to nowhere and it is just going to waste your money and even effort. It is a must that your body does the high-intensity interval training because that will guarantee to burn calories in your body fast, not to mention the right way.
Another wrong thing that people are doing in the gym is they do “vanity exercises.” This means guys would just want to flaunt their muscles and flex them but that’s about it. While girls just really love the idea of saying they go to the gym. If you do it for vanity’s sake, it is another reason why your shape won’t improve. Yes, you will burn calories here and there but you won’t exactly achieve a fit and lean body that a gym membership could give you.
Some people also think that if they go to the gym every day and do mediocre workouts, which will help them lose weight. The truth is, you can go to the gym even just 3 times a week and see results if you do workout intensively. Making every second count of body training is what will lead to results.
And lastly, you won’t see results in your weight if you hit the gym without a goal. It is highly recommended to have a calendar and note there what you want to achieve on a specific date. Like in three months, your goal is to have amazing abs and toned core. If you jot that down, it would be easy to motivate yourself.
So make your money, time and effort count whenever you go to the gym. Remember all these notes so you won’t commit the same mistakes again. Also, don’t forget to eat and sleep right every day. Because it doesn’t matter if you follow all these, but if you slack on your diet and sleeping habits then you still won’t get success in losing weight.
