The Impact of Consistency on Physical Health

As we know, if you want to live a healthier life and reach your goals, exercising less than 1x/week is not going to cut it.
When asked why they weren't able to stay consistent, the top 3 reasons were:

  • They had no guidance
  • They were bored
  • They were intimidated
Before starting working with Send Me A Trainer they would explain their previous fitness experience like:

  • "I never knew what to do"
  • "It was so boring"
  • "There was no one their to guide or motivate me"
  • "I never saw results"
As you can imagine, this led to them showing up less and less, before ultimately quitting.
We believe there is a better way.
Here are 5 reasons why you're inconsistent with your workouts and what to do instead.
  1. You Have No Workout Structure
  2. You Have No Accountability
  3. You Aren't Seeing Progress
  4. You had negative experience (injury, exercise related pain or intimidation)
  5. You think its going to be too challenging and you will have to spend countless hours exercising

Many people struggle with consistency when they fail to see immediate results from their actions.
Consistency dictates that we fully dedicate ourselves to a given task or goal over an extended period of time to reap the long term rewards. Without this commitment and short term focus our long term goals will never be realized.
Working out with consistency is important for achieving fitness results. Creating a workout plan will help you to achieve greater consistency. A commitment to a regular workout regimen will increase your fitness level, improve your health and generate a greater sense of mental well being.

Working out with consistency is important for your physical health. Running for five miles on one day only to avoid exercising for the next two weeks will only leave you feeling sore. It is too straining for the body to experience sporadic spurts of strenuous exercise. For optimal results, you will want to build up to higher and higher levels of cardiovascular strength, flexibility and strength training. A gradual increase in intensity will allow your muscles, tendons and ligaments a chance to adjust to the strains and challenges of a fitness regimen.
Consistent Workouts and Mental Health

A consistent workout regimen reduces stress and increases your mental well being. When you work out regularly, your body releases endorphins that enhance your mood. You have probably experienced these positive feelings after finishing a cardiovascular workout. You might also find that when you go for days or weeks of not exercising, your energy level decreases and your mood is not as heightened.
Sticking to a regular exercise regimen will keep you feeling revived both physically and mentally. When you exercise with consistency, your muscles will develop gradually and your mind will experience reduced levels of stress and greater relaxation.
