Laughter is the most healthful exertion. – Christoph Wilhelm Hufeland
Circuit training is a fun way to get fit.
It is also an excellent form of training to help people to stay motivated as you get a variety of exercises to perform in the course of a training session.
A well-designed fitness-training program will also target all the muscles of the body so you will be getting a full body workout at each session.
Combined with upbeat music that many gyms have on with circuit training, the time tends to pass a lot faster and the fun aspect ensures people are happy to return to the gym and that can only be good for their health.
If you are not a member of a gym it is possible to design your own circuit-training program for home.
The equipment you have will determine much of the program but it is possible to design a circuit-training program based around exercises that only use your own body weight.
It can also include indoor or outdoor activity and include walking and running as part of the training program.
A stereo at home or an iPod for outside training can add to the fun just as you would get as a member of a gym.
You can design the program to target any areas of your body that you desire and it can be fun creating your own training program and making changes to your training as you progress.
As will all forms of training it is good to keep a record of your results and always challenge yourself to do better.
Carrying a note book and pen might seem like a bit of a hassle but the record of your progress can be inspiring and there will be sufficient time in between the exercises to jot down these notes.
It can be quite surprising sometimes how we forget how much we have progressed over the course of a few weeks or months.
