This Week's Ask Gilad: Getting Back Into Shape

Question: I have not worked out for years and I am going to start a workout program.  How long will it take me to get into shape?

Answer:

 I like to look at it as this: How fast will you get to the goal you set for yourself?  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 twice as hard as your body can handle in its present condition.  In fact, those are two 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 you will achieve incredible results.
