Creating a personal fitness plan is a great way to stay motivated and keep track of your progress. Decide what’s most important to you at the moment. If losing weight and improving your endurance are important to you, focus predominantly on cardio. But, if you only want to build muscle, stick to strength training exercises. Then, use your priorities to set specific goals for yourself. For example, your goal could be to lose 5 pounds in a month or to bench-press 250 pounds within 3 months. Start slowly, then gradually increase your goals so you don’t push yourself too hard and get fed up.
