Salvere Blog: The Perfect Workout

by Salvere Health and Fitness
Kettlebells, boot camp, barre, Pilates, Bikram yoga, Crossfit, regular yoga, body pump, aerobics, running, etc. You name it, there’s an article about how its the “best workout for weight loss”. Well, what and how can all these different things be the “best”? How do you sift through all this to know what to do?

Really, we can’t answer this question for you. Think of all these things as tools in your toolbox that you can pick at different times. When looking at your fitness program (or journey), consider the following things: What do you enjoy doing? Do you struggle with chronic pain? Have you had surgery or injury? If so, was it major (such as knee replacement, back surgery or a heart attack) or minor (such as minor arthroscopic knee surgery)? How long have you been exercising? Have you lifted weights before? When are you most energetic? What type of exercise are you most likely to do regularly?
Remember, these answers will change over time! Keep checking in with yourself and as you progress so too will your fitness program. It’s helpful for your body and to prevent burnout/boredom to continue to make changes instead of just stopping because “it’s not working”. Learn what works for you on those days with lower energy or something flares up — Make a change to your routine that day, don’t just do nothing.
With our blogs, we do our best to not continue to overload you with information but to help you start to examine how you can apply things to YOU. Remember, science is one thing, real life another. Apply this to your fitness and nutrition. We’ve become a society with weight loss tunnel vision when it comes to exercise and eating. Lets work to take these blinders off and pay attention to how we feel. You are unique and something different works for each of us. We constantly change as individuals so allow your fitness and nutrition to ebb and flow with your life.
