Avoiding Fitness Burnout
Blasting Burnout at Our Corpus Christi Gyms
If you’re like many, sticking with your fitness routine can become more of a chore than you’d like. You start out on fire and with good intentions, but you eventually find your routine frustrating and flat.
Or maybe you’re a regular gym-goer but you’re just not seeing results anymore. Boredom has set in.
Did You Know?
- According to a study conducted by the American Council on Exercise, the most common reason people give up on their fitness goals is because they’re too difficult (34%).
- Other reasons people give up on their fitness goals include lack of time (19%), boredom (16%), and injury (11%).
We’re here to tell you – don’t give up! Burnout is not uncommon, and our gyms in Corpus Christi have a few ideas to help you sidestep it, stay on track, and reach your goals!
Take It Easy
One of the best ways to avoid fitness burnout is to take it slow. It’s not an all-or-nothing venture — you don’t have to go from zero to hero overnight!
Start slowly and gradually increase your intensity level over time. If you try to do too much too soon, you’re more likely to get frustrated and give up.
A Tailored Plan
Another way to avoid fitness burnout is to work with a personal trainer. A personal trainer can help you determine your fitness goals and create a workout plan that’s tailored specifically for you. Having someone to help you stay on track – and accountable — can make all the difference.
Even elite athletes can benefit from personal training from time-to-time. As hard as you exercise, sometimes you bump into a plateau that you just can’t shake. No gains, no glory. Let a personal trainer help you shake it up with fresh ideas for exercise, intensity, and duration.
