Getting Lost In Health & Fitness

There is so much information out there on the topic of health and fitness. Bring in the Internet element, and you can have 100 different viewpoints at the click of your mouse! This can almost paralyze people by confusing them. Confusion prevents us from taking action, and taking action is really the only way to build momentum when it comes to your health and fitness.

If you follow my blog, you probably have already read what my training philosophy is. I will quote a key point from my philosophy and expand on it:

“What is true is this – there is NO perfect training regimen. There are certain laws in science that steer us in the right direction, but there are many roads that will lead to the same result.”

With that being said, find something you enjoy and are passionate about and start there. I am a very strong believer in High Intensity Training, but, is my way the only way to get the desired result? NO!!!!!

What if you can’t stomach the thought of putting yourself through a High Intensity Workout, and you stay sedentary instead? Thats the worst thing! And if you get stuck in the mindset of, “Well, that is supposedly the best way to achieve that result, and I don’t like what it entails so I am not going to do anything!” then you are missing the whole point.

What if you really love that low impact, low intensity aerobic class with your friends….. By ALL means do it!!! It is better than being sedentary. You will definitely get results if you are consistent. Consistency is one of the biggest keys to success. Keep the big picture in mind, and build a fitness lifestyle around your likes and dislikes.

The point I am trying to make here is, start where you have enjoyment, excitement, or passion. Although, I feel I have a strong background and stay up to date with health and fitness. Its not “My way, or the highway!” I would rather you just use this site as a reference and structure your own fitness lifestyle around the way YOU know you can succeed at it. Thats the way I strive to structure this blog… is to bring variety, and sift through useless fitness advice by staying current… the end result… Information you can immediately apply to your life.

Some points to keep in mind:

1. Don’t just rely on one source for your information. I will humbly say, CorporateToCut shouldn’t be your only source for information. You may chose this as your “core” site (And I hope you do). But Different perspectives and views are good, as it allows you to be eclectic and add things to your fitness lifestyle you know you will do and follow through with.
2. Don’t be afraid to try new things. You may find something that your body really responds well to because your attitude to the approach feeds how hard you push yourself when you approach it.
3. Information Overload is real. I understand this, and I recommend narrowing down your sources to just One or maybe Two “core” sites you get your information from, and spend 80% of your time there. Within the main site you will come across other resources and sites you can venture out in… and go ahead and spend 20% of your time exploring those others. Taking this approach will allow the Core Site to be a solid “base,” all while still allowing exploration into other perspectives without going down a “rabbit hole” so to speak.

I do appreciate every one of my readers, and I strive to be a core source of information you go to for health and fitness. I don’t take this task lightly.
