This is applicable for any goal – any plan needs a structure!
However, it is particularly applicable to fitness goals. If you walk into a gym without a structured workout plan you will likely wander around, not get an effective workout and worst of all, not enjoy it!
Structuring and planning workouts can be tricky if you’re new to fitness or if you have a specific goal to hit, so get some help with this.
Personal trainers are there to do this part for you – a good personal trainer will discuss your goals and tailor a structured program to help you reach them. It doesn’t necessarily need to cost a fortune – maybe you only need to do occasional sessions with the trainer looking over your shoulder, but they can provide you a program to do on your own if you have the self-motivation.
