Circuit training is an excellent form of training with its variety of exercises to perform. It helps you to stay motivated since there is always something different to do – in just a few minutes in each training session. It really is a fun way to get fit.
A word of caution you need to remember. Make sure your training program is well-designed. A well-designed fitness training program will target all the muscles of the body so you get a full body workout at each session.
Combined with upbeat music that many gyms have playing with circuit training, you’ll find time tends to pass a lot faster and you’ll enjoy it so much, you’ll be happy to return to the gym. And that can only be good for your health.
If you are not a member of a gym it is possible to design your own circuit-training program for home.
What equipment do you already have?
The equipment you have will determine
much of the program
but it is possible to design
a circuit-training program
based around exercises that only
use your own body weight.
Include running or walking outdoors
It can also include
indoor or outdoor activity and
include walking and running
as part of the training program.
CDs at home or an mp3 player for outside training can add to the fun you would get as a member of a gym and keep your motivation up.
You can design the program to target any areas of your body that you desire and it can be fun creating your own training program and making changes to your training as you progress.
As with all forms of training it is good to keep a record of your results and always challenge yourself to do better.
Carrying a note book and pen might seem like a bit of a hassle but the record of your progress can be inspiring and there will be sufficient time in between the exercises to jot down these notes.
It can be quite surprising sometimes how we forget how much we have progressed over the course of a few weeks or months. Seeing your goals being achieved will really boost your morale and keep motivation strong.
