We probably all have our own fitness myths. I have studied fitness training and have trained with at least 12 different skilled fitness trainers over the years and I have heard read conflicting information. Here is what I do know: Your body was made to move. Your body was made to out run attacking animals, to till the ground and reap the harvest. We were not made to ride in a car, sit like I do for hours at the computer or to recline in front of the TV. I also know that hypnosis helps for exercise motivation. Even while I work out I use self-hypnosis to make sure that I maximize my routine by ensuring i have proper form and that I isolate the correct muscles. I use hypnotherapy both in spin class as well as on the road on my bike for strength, endurance and heart rate control.

Top 9 Fitness Myths – Busted!

Fitness Myth No. 1: Running on a treadmill puts less stress on your knees than running on asphalt or pavement.

Fitness Myth No. 2: Doing crunches or working on an “ab machine” will get rid of belly fat.

Fitness Myth No. 3: An aerobic workout will boost your metabolism for hours after you stop working out.

Fitness Myth No. 4: Swimming is a great weight loss activity.

Fitness Myth No. 5: Yoga can help with all sorts of back pain.

Fitness Myth No. 6: If you’re not working up a sweat, you’re not working hard enough.

Fitness Myth No. 7: As long as you feel OK when you’re working out, you’re probably not overdoing it.

Fitness Myth No. 8: Machines are a safer way to exercise because you’re doing it right every time.

Fitness Myth No. 9: When it comes to working out, you’ve got to feel some pain if you’re going to gain any benefits.

Of all the fitness rumors ever to have surfaced, experts agree that the “no pain-no gain” holds the most potential for harm.

While you should expect to have some degree of soreness a day or two after working out, that’s very different from feeling pain while you are working out.

A fitness activity should not hurt while you are doing it, and if it does, then either you are doing it wrong, or you already have an injury.
