Trainer Tips: 5 Reasons You are Not Seeing Results

5 Reasons You are Not Seeing Results By Jasmin Lepir

  1. Inconsistency
  2. Incorrect Intensity
  3. You are suffering from case of F.A.D.D. (Fitness Attention Deficit Disorder)
  4. You are doing someone else’s workout
  5. You are in Love with your Exercise Selection

1- People who work on achieving a goal on a more consistent basis are more likely to be successful than people who do not. It is as simple as that. Fitness is no different. Consistency is a skill. And, just like any skill, it needs to be practiced on a daily basis. Some people are better at it than others. Hiring a Personal Trainer is a great way to stay consistent with your training.

2- Does the intensity of your workout match your goals? How about your frequency? Many gym goers train at the wrong intensity level. Check with one of our fitness professionals to make sure that you are working at the right intensity and getting the most out of your workout.

3- People are made to believe (by some genius marketing firms) that, if they want to see results, they have to do different things all of the time in order to “Confuse their Muscles.” By doing that, you never give your body enough time to see any of the results. Have a professional design you a simple plan and do it for 8 weeks.

4- Whether you want to lose weight, gain muscle, burn fat, jump higher, run faster or all of the above, you need your own plan. If you are doing something you saw in a magazine or online that promises all of this - you are doing someone else’s plan.

5- We all do this. We tend to do things we are good at. However, they may not necessarily be the most effective or most appropriate way to achieve your goal. More often than not, things we “hate” doing in the gym are the best things for us. Have a fitness professional assess your program and make changes if necessary.
