Excerpts from Body Mechanics - Beginners Guide to Fitness
For many people, the thought of getting into shape –– or just the act of exercising for that matter –– is like throwing a speeding locomotive into reverse. An enormous amount of energy has to come to a loud, grinding halt in a short period of time, and then slowly begin to move in the opposite direction.
Getting into shape, biologically, is a relatively easy process; the hard part, more often than not, is simply getting started. Being physically fit takes commitment, discipline, concentration, and an overall desire to succeed.
Making the commitment to physical fitness, in many ways, presents a greater challenge than the weights and workout routines that will follow; and in the beginning, many people make the mistake of training too hard and too fast, causing soreness, frustration, and discouragement. Walking blindly into a gym and grabbing a piece of equipment in the hopes that something will happen will never work. To achieve your fitness goals, you need to plan your work –– and work your plan.
Body Mechanics - Beginner's Guide to Fitness helps you create that plan, by helping you understand your body, and the changes beginning an exercise program will play upon it.
