With the New Year upon us many people are busy setting out their New Year’s Resolutions, and 2014 Goals. It is no surprise that the biggest item on the majority of peoples list is to get into better physical shape, yet 70% or more of people end up giving up on this goal before the month of February is over!
Why is this an all too common occurrence? Some will tell you it’s because of limited time available to get to the gym, circumstances have changed and their attention needs to be focused elsewhere for the time being, or they may just say that exercise doesn’t work for them. While some of these are valid points, and life does have a way of getting in the way, the biggest reason most people are giving up is due to a lack of understanding. If you don’t understand your body or its needs, it will be very difficult to set realistic (SMART ) goal to achieve your desired results.
The first step to ensuring you are setting yourself up for success is to understand what body type you have since your body type influences how you respond to diet and training.
