Exercise has been consistant for me but, I'd have to say the mode has changed. I've found myself leaning towards calisthenics and ditching the weights. Not only is the form of exercise natural, you don't need a gym membership! All you need is a great workout and commitment. Being able to balance your own body weight using a wide variety of exercises is the ultimate goal. Once you've accomplished that challenge then you can add additional weights. But I doubt that will ever happen to me.
Longterm commitment is the only obstacle to achieving any goal. But I find obtaining fitness is a huge problem in America. Every year there is a new get fit fad that many struggling individuals are eager to jump on board. My goodness, how many times can we reinvent fitness? It's been around forever and many still can't find the right program for themselves. They bounce around like a ping pong ball trying new programs relentlessly and never achieving true fitness.
How about those that believe that special diets are the way to fitness. They go on detox diets, go vegan, and drink crazy mixtures in hopes of melting the extra pounds away. I just sigh as I watch them abuse their bodies internally knowing that they will eventually quit and move onto a new weight loss fad. Never reaching their goal!
Fitness is sensible, realistic, healthy eating and exercise! Why do we make something simple soo hard to do?
