4 Tips to Find the Right Fitness Program Hello, welcome to MadeFitTV. I'm your host Jennifer DiDonato and this episode #104. MadeFitTV is everyone’s source for helping fitness, information and entertainment in case you didn’t know and it’s also work fit bodies don’t just happen. They are made, okay. A lot of people get a little intimidated but you can make it. It just all about what's your educated in and your motivation and that’s what we’re here for. So welcome. I'm a little scratchy right now because few days ago, I just got back from Vegas. So -- but of course, I came back not empty handed. I have like sinus infection or something, so I really apologize for my scratchy throat. But anyway, it was great. And at the end of the podcast, I’ll show you guys some awesome pictures because we went to UFC, 116, it was great. So anyway, we’ll talk about that later. But anyway, 104 episode, this is what it is. And today is going to be a beginner’s guide to finding the right program for you. And when I say beginner’s, you know don’t go ahead and shut this thing off because you're not a beginner. Hold up, just because you're not a beginner doesn’t mean you can't benefit from this podcast because all of us sometime or another whether we've been working out for ten years or ten months or ten days, we hit a plateau. We hit a point where something’s got to change. And so that’s why I want to do this podcast. I get so many emails including the one from Ree from Texas and she writes. Let me find it. She emailed me through Ask Jennie and she says, “I've been trying to be consistent with my workout but I get bored easily”. Don’t we all. “I've been doing at least 30 minutes, 4 days a week. They varied from treadmill or come in bike to 30 minute body weight and weight lifting exercises. Is this a good way for me to kick off my weight loss again or should I have a set routine like Monday upper body, Wednesday lower, Friday cardio? Please help. I don’t want to be wasting my time if my routine is not going to work. I will set up a routine if needed but I really like that variety of waking up in the morning and doing what I want to enjoy for the day. Thank you so much, Ree”. And keyword in there is enjoy. That is the keyword because if you don’t enjoy what you're doing that is going to be a problem for you if you're trying to see results. So let's start off. Number one, if you have been working out or working with your program for at least three months and you're still not seeing any changes or whatsoever and I'm talking about measurable changes, I'm talking about weight loss, changes in circumference of your waist, the way you look and feel. If you are not seeing any changes or feeling any different whatsoever after a good 12 weeks, stop what you're doing because you're doing something wrong and you just need to stop it. And the one thing that I find when I try to introduce a different way of training with my clients even, a lot of times people -- you need it with resistance. And the reason why is that we’re curious of habits. And we will read those magazines and we will just constantly spin our wheels because we are so afraid to just step outside the box. But what I always ask people is “Well, have you been getting results from what you’ve been doing?” And they say no, so say, so what if you’ve got to lose to change it and try something different. So we’ll talk about how you can do that. Number two, figure out exactly what you're aiming for when you're doing these workouts, when you are -- why are you eating rice? Why are waking at 7AM to do workout? You step back for a second not just -- I don’t want you to say “Oh, because I want to lose weight”. “Oh because I want to look better”, that’s not something specific. I want you guys to be specific. I want you to tell me okay, do you want to increase muscle mass. Okay, if you do, measure your biceps guys or girls, measure your quads. You have to have quantitative data if you would want to get more mass
