Just as there are countless diet plans on the market, so are there exercise programs. While the fact that there is a variety of programs is certainly good news, as it provides different options for people, allowing them to try out and select routines and workouts that are best suited to their desires and body needs, it’s a good idea to read exercise programs reviews online prior to implementing one into your lifestyle.

 

Why? Exercise programs reviews can tell you a lot about what an exercise program that may be of interest to you entails, giving you an idea of what you can expect and the overall effectiveness of the method.

 

Of course, not every review you find online will be of help to you. Some of the feedback that is left by consumers who have supposedly tried these exercise programs is either made up by individuals who have never actually tried the products or techniques themselves, or contain short and useless info that generally states what was liked without giving any details as to why.  Therefore, you may be wondering what a good review looks like.

 

The following is a list of some of the important points you should look for when using exercise programs reviews as a source of information:

 

  • The full name of the exercise programs
  • Who created it and information about this person
  • What it is designed to do (i.e. what areas of the body does it target)
  • How it works (i.e. what equipment, techniques, supplements, etc. are involved)
  • What type of results should occur and how long before progress can be seen
  • The best time of day to engage in the workout
  • How long it takes to complete
  • Any side effects experienced by the body – positive or negative
  • Who it is most recommended for and why
  • Who should avoid it

 

Many of the above points are more likely to be found in exercise programs reviews written by professionals for informational purposes than in feedback that has been left by consumers. That said, it will serve you well to read evaluations from actual users of the program, as they can provide you with a more realistic view of the type of results they experienced firsthand and the positive and negative aspects they encountered.   Just be sure to read numerous reviews to obtain a well rounded perspective.

 

The more data you can find out about the exercise programs you’d like to try, the better understanding you will have and the more likely you will be able to determine what feels right for you. Nevertheless, it’s always a good idea to discuss any new exercise regimen you intend to adopt with your doctor prior to starting it.

If you want to really benefit from an exercise program, don’t just think that you’re going to automatically be good at it and that it will be easy. When you do an exercise program, you want it to be challenging. If you’re not challenged by it, then it won’t really do anything for you.

This is absolutely true and it's one of my biggest failings. I like being good at things right from the get-go, and it's sometimes hard to overcome the hurdle when I actually have to work up to being good at something.

You're right, though. If you want to benefit from a fitness program, you have to assume that you're starting as a "beginner" and that you will get better with time. Allow the challenge to be something positive instead of seeing it as something that is holding you back.

If you want to really benefit from an exercise program, don’t just think that you’re going to automatically be good at it and that it will be easy. When you do an exercise program, you want it to be challenging. If you’re not challenged by it, then it won’t really do anything for you.

And if you’re being challenged, it means that it’s going to be at least a little bit hard to do. Don’t give up after doing a workout once or twice just because it’s hard (unless you find it dangerous or painful, of course). You really need to be dedicated and have drive. Understand that when you’re being challenged, you’re making a real difference in your fitness level and your weight loss/body building.

You need to find the program that’s right for you. There is no single diet program that will work for everyone.

exercise programs are great for keeping yourself on target when the weather is too hot or too cold and you just feel like staying in all the time.

I remember when an exercise program was essentially just a person doing certain pretty basic moves on the tv screen with lame elevator music in the background. And I’m not very old! I can’t believe how far they’ve come just since I’ve started using them as vcr cassettes :lol:

By using an exercise program through a book, video, or at a gym, as long as it has been approved of by your doctor so that you know it is properly designed, then you’ll be a lot more likely to keep up with it and get all around benefits, instead of just winging it and doing your own thing.

I find that it makes sure that I exercise my whole body instead of just parts because it stops me from just doing the workouts that I like the most and avoiding the hard or boring ones. ;-)

0 # I made up my owntracy1976 2011-12-01 05:12
I can’t seem to get set exercise programs to work for me, so I just made up my own. It keeps things different throughout the week so that nothing becomes completely boring or repetitive. It also means that I have options for staying inside if it’s not very nice out, or I can go out if it’s a beautiful day.

Furthermore, it means that my exercise program can work at the gym, at home, or even walking up and down in the stairwell at work.

I make sure that I get two 30-minute exercise sessions in every day. I have to do aerobic workouts every day, and three days per week also have to include toning exercises.

I’ve tried a few workout programs before and they just don’t seem to work for me. I think they’re too repetitive. I need something that allows me to decide on a whim that I feel like walking one day, swimming one day, cycling one day, or strength training on another day.

Workouts can be done with or without a plan. If you need structure, then a plan might be for you. If you're a body builder, same thing goes. But if you just want to stay active, get out and walk, go for a swim, jog, ride your bike. No program required!

These days when I look at the exercise programs that are available, everything feels like an odd, complicated strategy. Nothing is just “normal” anymore. Whatever happened to walking, jogging, cycling, and toning with free weights? Now everything has to be counted, measured and pushed to the limit.

I'm hoping to see more exercise programs than just this one. I've been looking for a good one since I'm really not wild about them. The more options I have, the better my chances of finding something that will help me switch up from my daily walking routine and my (hated) video.

Glad to see that the number of programs that are being reviewed are building. This is a great site. I think that the comments are really being taken to heart. I love the ever growing information and that there's always something new to learn to make my efforts easier, healthier, or more effective.

I love the names that they give these different exercise programs. Some are so cute and others sound so "serious". I guess when all is said and done, it does help you to choose the right one for you and how intense you are about reaching your goal since there's a big difference between the sound of "fat x" and "yummy mummy".
