If the program you thinkyou will stick with and enjoy, cost a little more, look at it as aninvestment in yourself.After all you’re worth it and sticking to a home workoutprogram most likely will save you money in the long run, justthink of how much a doctor visit cost! Not to mention the valueof an increase in quality of life!4) Commit to workout with yourchosen program for at least 90days!This is where most of us fail. We start looking for resultstoo soon. Realize that the shape you’re in now may be theresult of years or decades of neglect. To expect an overnightturnaround is usually unrealistic, however from the day youstart your journey, your body is adjusting and preparing forbetter health. These adjustments usually come with some levelof discomfort. In fact if you are feeling no aches or pains,you might need to step it up or chose another program thatchallenges your body. Just remember that the aches and painsshould be limited to muscle not to joints or tendons. Consultyour physician if you feel you have an injury.5)Look for programs from Trainersthat are Nationally recognized asFitness leaders!Some of these are:• Tony Horton*• Chalene Johnson*• Shaun T*• Jillian Michaels• Les Mills*• Debbie Siebers*• Billy Blanks• Leandro Carvalho*• Donna Richardson Joyner** These trainer’s programs are available through a commoncompany offering multiple home workout programs includingthese and various other trainers.6) Demand that the program youchose comes not only with DVD’s,but with a complete fitness plan.representative example of a Home Workout Program thatincludes: workout DVD’s- program guide-nutritional guide aswell as some equipment.( including a step by step program guide and a nutritionalguide )Having supporting information will make the Program easierto follow as well as more valuable to you as you work throughit. Another aspect that should be included with all programsis support. Not just customer/tech support but support fromthe creators of the programs or other individuals who have aworking knowledge of the program and are available to answeryour questions and concerns.With the access to the internet that we enjoy these days, thebetter programs offer large amounts of information, supportand encouragement online. Some offer customized meal plans,access to chat and message boards, online videos, workouttracking and even a virtual coach to work with. (virtual coachesare supportive individuals on a similar journey that haveused and have access to specific information and training.They are assigned to purchasers of the programs to offersupport,encouragement and accountability, using email andother social media tools such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter,Youtube and so forth to communicate with clients.)
