The long term goal of any physical exercise program should be rooted in health. The ability to move one’s own body properly, the ability to move other objects efficiently, and the ability to maintain physical work for a given period of time are all integral components of overall physical fitness - mobility, strength, and endurance.
Plan: A method for achieving an end.
“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here? That depends a good deal on where you want to get to. I don’t much care where… Then it doesn’t matter which way you go.”
-Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
All training should be properly planned to initiate a stimulus for adaptation based on current fitness levels and goals. Training is rather futile if not purposeful. It is my job as a coach and trainer to take into account a client’s current fitness levels, capabilities, and goals to create workouts that are appropriately challenging.
Proper planning ensures that the time and resources invested in training are put to the best use possible, injuries are avoided, and our long term fitness journey does not become stagnant but continues progressing in the correct direction
