Question: How fast can I expect results from a fitness program?
Answer: That depends on what goals you have set for yourself. But as a rule of thumb, if you are committed to a program and really work at it you can achieve noticeable results in 6 short weeks, good results in 12 weeks and excellent results in 6 months.
The most important thing to remember is to let go of the idea that you can accomplish your goal faster if you take a short cut such as a crash diet or working harder than your body can handle in its present condition. In fact, those are 2 sure ways to put you right into the 'roller coaster club' of those who gain, lose, gain, lose and so on.
The fact is, if you work within your ability and if you implement slow and controlled changes that your body can adapt to, those changes will become comfortable and permanent and you will achieve incredible results!
