As a personal fitness trainer who works with my clients at their homes and apartment complexes, in the Delray Beach Florida area, I am often asked, “what is a workout?” This is a very simple question that has a lot of complex answers to it. Many people work out for various reasons. Some workout for weight loss to improve their health. Others, their profession is linked to them looking healthy and appealing. Many people need to work out because they have illnesses or diseases that are influenced by them not being fit. We could put all these reasons into one great big ball.

Why Work Out

To me, a workout is honoring myself and my body to be the best that it can be and doing whatever I can to assure that I stay healthy today and prevent any issues with my health in the future. It is a form of respect to my body to keep it moving and active because that’s what it was designed to do. Movement is part of life. We must practice it to keep it. It’s that simple.

There are many ways you could work out. Having a personal fitness trainer design a fitness program is a great way to be sure that you’re doing the right thing guided by professional. Having a fitness professional set you up on a basic strength training program along with some flexibility and balance movements is a great way to start an exercise program. As the personal trainer gets to know you and your body, they will recommend exercises that can help you rehabilitate certain issues with your body. Some examples are tight muscles and pain in certain joints like the knees and shoulders. All these issues can be remedied by a solid rehabilitation program.

I would like to plant the seed in your brain that if you’re not doing anything regarding exercising and moving outside of your normal daily activities. Invite a personal fitness trainer into your workout and you’ll see some amazing changes in the way you live and move.
