Fitness. Working out. Hitting it hard. Gym talk. If any of that sounds or looks like a foreign language, there is a good chance that you are a fitness beginner. Do not worry though, you are not alone in this new journey we call fitness.
As WedMD stated, “there’s no arguing that exercise can help most people lose weight, as well as look more toned and trim.” And yes, those are a few of the top reasons we begin working out, but other reasons include boosting our self-esteem and raising our self-confidence. No matter what your reason is, hitting it hard in the gym is a lot easier than it seems.
The first question you may be asking yourself is, “Why do I even need to work out?” Well, according to Michael R. Bracko, chairman of the American College of Sports Medicine’s Consumer Information Committee, “exercise is the magic pill.” He goes on to say that “exercise can literally cure diseases like some forms of heart disease.”
