Why You Should Have an Individualized Exercise Plan

Why You Should Have an Individualized Exercise Plan

When you’re trying to lose weight and get in shape, you have tons of choices, but DIY programs fail to take individual factors into consideration and may not be right for you. A personalized fitness program designed by a health professional removes the guesswork and provides real results. 

You’re a unique individual with your own goals and challenges. For the best results, a personalized fitness program helps you target your specific strengths and identify and overcome hurdles to reach your goals. 

At Nova Physician Wellness Center, our obesity medicine specialists, Rohit Suri, MD, and Seema Chaudhary, MD, create research-backed, individualized wellness plans to empower you on your wellness journey. Whether your goal is to lose weight, boost your strength, build muscle, or improve your overall fitness, we have the tools and expertise to help you reach your goals. 

Exercise is a key component in weight loss and weight maintenance. Working with an exercise plan created by a health expert can help you lose weight and improve your overall wellness. 

Here are some reasons why a personalized fitness plan is the way to go.

It’s safe and effective

Unlike DIY exercise plans, a plan we create is the safest and most effective approach to achieve your wellness goals. We give you exercises that are appropriate for your skill level and baseline health, and they can help you achieve your goals while helping prevent injury.

It’s created just for you

Unlike a DIY fitness plan, your unique exercise program is created just for you based on vital information gained from your evaluation. We take factors such as your body type and baseline fitness level into consideration. 

This provides us with a reasonable starting place to help you set realistic goals. It allows you to progress and keeps you motivated and moving toward your goals.

Your goals are at the forefront

You want to improve your fitness, which is fantastic! Your fitness goal, whether it’s to lose weight or increase your lean mass, serves as the foundation for your personalized exercise program. It's what will keep you motivated and enthusiastic about working out and succeeding. We keep your goals at the forefront and help you stay focused to meet them.

It’s designed with your body in mind

Your body has unique demands and capabilities that can only be met through a personalized workout program. Each individual has different strengths when it comes to each fitness component. 

A personalized fitness program can enhance your physique. Reducing body fat and increasing lean muscle, for instance, is a more desirable body composition and can boost your metabolism. 

It helps you achieve goals faster

An individualized exercise plan can assist you in achieving your goals faster. You will work the right muscles with more attention if you use an intelligently planned fitness program that targets your individual strengths.

Whether your goal is weight loss, endurance, flexibility, balance, or simply being more healthy and active, we can help you get there faster by tailoring a program to your individual needs.

It takes your personality into consideration

The truth is that fitness personalities come in a variety of shapes and sizes. You'll discover that exercising is a lot more enjoyable once we identify your fitness personality. Working with your unique personality means that we can create goals and incentives that inspire and motivate you to keep you going through challenges. Custom tailoring your exercise program is a proven strategy to help you succeed. 

It’s based on your lifestyle

Exercise plans are much more successful when they take your lifestyle into consideration. We can design a plan around your schedule and interests. For instance, if you’re someone who prefers the outdoors, we can create an exercise program that incorporates outdoor activities.

It’s proven that when people incorporate activities they enjoy, they’re more likely to stick to an exercise plan and make it part of their long-term lifestyle.
