Basic Fitness Principles

Hello!  The art of making your body fit is really quite simple and definitely not complicated.  As you look through the site you’ll find very user friendly exercises and see basic concepts that can be easily incorporated into your daily life.  These exercises and themes can dramatically improve your level of fitness over time.  They can be performed in the comfort of your own home or in a gym.

One of the best parts of is the information will be readily available so you won’t have to research how to get in shape.

Also, one very important note I’d like to address is you should be cleared by your physician before engaging in any exercise program.  This is true regardless of how much exercise you plan on doing.

There’s a few principles in starting a fitness regimen to keep in mind to be successful.  First and foremost is you need to make a decision and commit to a program.  You need to set up a schedule to include exercise and stick to it as much as possible.

Without commitment you’re not going to get results, plain and simple.  You should also try to find exercises you actually like doing and include them in your program.  This way you’ll be more inclined to work out and have more fun while doing so, it won’t feel like a grind!

Another tip I’d like to share is try to work out with a partner such as a friend, significant other, etc.  This way you can motivate and encourage each other which can improve your results.  You can also hold each other accountable for not slacking off.  However, I know some people like working out by themselves.  If that’s what you prefer that’s perfectly fine.  What’s important is that you do what’s comfortable for you.

The last point I’d like to cover is try to work out around the same time every day.  This makes it easier for your body to get adapted to the changes that occur from exercising.  Some people prefer mornings and some late afternoon or evenings.  It really doesn’t matter what time you do it as long as you’re consistent with the time you choose.

I know some people have hectic schedules and can’t do it the same time every day.  However, if you’re able to you should see better results.  If you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact me below.  Or you can also email me at  Thanks for your time and good luck in your journey to be fit!

  1. I agree its very important to pick a time of day and try to stick to it. I prefer mornings for cardio and weights in the afternoon, after you’ve naturally been active for a few hours. Also its basically impossible to measure progress without a program, happy you put that in there as a must have.

  2. Hi Jon,

    Lots of ideas and information for anyone who wants to live a healthy lifestyle. I had a mild heart attack a little over 2 years ago. I didn’t blame it on the food I was eating but I did it blame it on the lack of exercise I was getting. I would sit at my computer hours at a time instead of getting up every hour and moving around like I do now!

    I will be back to visit again soon. My best to you, Vel

      Yes sometimes it can be difficult to stay with a routine, especially if you have a hectic schedule. If you can try and get in about 150 minutes a week and eat healthy you’ll be headed in the right direction. Thanks for stopping by and take care!
