Giving up is so easy when it comes to starting to get fit. We hear this all the time. “It’s too hard”, “I have no time”, “My results are not showing up”. We expect all the results of the weight loss to show up as we train. Nothing is going to happen overnight. Our bodies have to adjust to where it could take weeks months or even years. Every day you keep going towards your goal you are one step closer to your outcome.
- The physical effects of working out, such as weight loss or muscle gain, often take weeks or months to noticeably appear in people who are just starting out with exercise.
- Each person’s body has a different reaction to exercise that is based on a variety of factors, including age, gender, genetics, and prior training.
- In addition to physical benefits, regular exercise also carries countless benefits that are not visible to the naked eye, and these benefits are just as important and worthwhile.
“So while we can’t really change when the benefits appear, we can change our expectations of the benefits, making them more realistic and limiting our disappointment when they fail to show in our preferred timing.”
