Every body is different. A well known, well recited truth that we understand more and more in our research into the mind and body. Each and every person is unique, in their genetic make up, their lifestyles, and their personalities. Though we are all aware of our one of a kind nature, we are oftentimes still treated as if we were the same. Especially when it comes to health and wellness advice, we are generally led to believe that there is a right way and a wrong way – which essentially presupposes that what works for one person, works for all. This is apparent in the many conflicting regimes for diets and exercise that are claimed to be the ‘best’ way to get fit, lose weight, be healthy etc.
However, in the field of physical health and exercise, growing research indicates the opposite of this. Experts in exercise science have established that not everyone responds to exercise and physical movement the same way. When people do not see the results they expect, or feel as if their path to fitness is stifled, then switching from one exercise regime to another can be the deciding factor in making a real difference in fitness, weight maintenance and health results. This is good news for people who have been feeling disheartened at not seeing results, despite their efforts at being physically active.
It is advised to try something different, if you feel that your fitness is not improving. Switching the intensity, length, workout type or how many days you exercise are all ways you can boost results in fitness and healthy weight maintenance. Find what works best for you, as for each and every person, this may be different.
