Avoid fitness fads.

If you are thinking of trying the latest fitness fad that you have seen on television or in a magazine, think again.

All of these ads attempt to reinforce the misconception that we are not in the shape we desire to be solely because we have been missing out on one simple, carefree technique. The reality is that in order to reach your goals you need to work hard. There is no method of improving your physical condition that circumvents hard work.

Even if your fitness fad of choice is somewhat effective, your results will be limited at best. One fantastic piece of equipment will not provide you with the long-term variety or motivation necessary to produce lasting results. Ultimately, your equipment will invariably become an awkward place to hang your laundry.

All in all, your money is better spent on a gym membership and/or time with a well-educated personal trainer, and remember that if it sounds too good to be true then it probably is!
