What you should know Far too often individuals attempt to tackle workout programs that are arbitrarily composed, and not specific to what the individual may need. In the fitness profession, we refer to these programs as "cookie-cutter" programs. These programs are a one-size-fits-all, and are great at getting people to move in the direction of "dipping their toes" in the world of exercise. Is this a bad thing? No, nor is it paramount to ones success in physical fitness, or overall health. Let's talk about why. What are you aiming at? You may want to lose weight, gain muscle, or tone up. So how does someone typically approach this type of goal? Well the inquisitive populations would surface research exercises under the titles of "best weight loss exercises", or "how to lose weight fast." The results they find? Either poor nutrition advice, cookie-cutter programs, or the infamous sales pitch for a new ground breaking, innovative, clinically researched, tried and true weight loss apparatus (a.k.a waist trimmers).
