What is your vision of a fitness program?

I am a coordinator for a university and was just given permission to start my own fitness program. It can be for anyone, students, community, staff. I wanted to know ideas of things people would want in a fitness program. How can I make the best one possible. Any ideas or suggestions are much appreciated.

    Watching someone on TV work out, like the commericals trying to sell you the ab roller or bow flex. I get all worked up and I get really hot and starting to sweat and I have to change the channel.

    fitness involves three components, muscular strength, cardiovascular endurance and flexibility. You can design a program which favours one of the three components but try to incorporate all of them. A simple program for beginers might be pushups, squats or lunges (bodyweight), followed by cardio, step class, spinning etc, followed by stretching, ab work.

    1.a fitness program should first of all include cardio ( both HIIT – High Intensity Interval Training for no more than 30 minutes 3-4 times a week , and LILDC – Low Intensity Long Duration Cardio for 45-60 minutes 5-6 times a week ) . examples are walking , running , cycling , spinning , sprinting etc.

    2.another important factor of a fitness program is strength it would be nice to include 2-3 sessions of total body strength training for as long as 45 minutes per week ( never in the row though , make it one day thn off then another session thn off n so on ) . comes flexibility which is very important for a fitness program.examples are yoga , pilates , tai chi etc.

    4.Including circuit training might as well be an effective choice for a fitness program.

    5.Stretching for 5-7 minutes before AND after every workout ( whether it’s cardio or strength training or yoga or whatever ) .Warming up and cooling down are the main factors of a fitness program so that should never be neglected.

    All these things should be incorporated with healthy eating.and there you have it.A fitness program , best for all.

    You’ve got a wide range of ages and types, not to mention whether you want both sexes in your group. What type of program do you want? Since you are the one leading it, where do you want this to go? How physical do you want it to be? What level of intensity do you see this program being? You may need to have two or three programs at different days. Do you want weights or resistance machines, cardio only or a mix of both? What’s your budget? What can you do? How big is your facility?

    Check out local exercise programs already in the area, like the local Curves or Jazzercise places. Locate and talk to some independent gym owners. Get ideas and then do an impromptu survey to see what your clientele would like and how much time they have to do it per day. Then, get your results together and do that. You may not be successful right away but you will catch on and go from there.

    Also, you may want to check out the U.S. Army and other military branches. Bases have very transient groups but have workout programs for enlisted personnel and their dependents. I understand that over the last few years they have become very user friendly and very duplicatable.

    I hope this helps. Good Luck.

    Hi there, this is funny. I just went onto the internet to help my son with his assignment for school. He is also developing a fitness and diet plan. To answer your question, as a non motivated person who really needs to push herself to do a little exercise. Keep it simple. Walking, cycling, pilates is fantastic and is low impact, breathing technique is important, as is diet to help give you energy. Good luck with your assignment. Regards Michelle
