One Size FIts All Exercise NO NO

Most people wouldn't wear a new suit or gown without having it tailored to fit them properly, so why are people so willing to jump into one size fits all training programs?  Ill-fitting clothing looks bad, an ill-fitting exercise program will not achieve your goals and may lead to injury. Whether it is yoga, exercise dvds, advertised program you order, exercise programs and especially the latest fads such as kettlebells, crossfit and suspension training the questions to ask are: 1) What are my goals; 2) What is my current physical condition - including medical history, injuries, posture and movement impairment; and most importantly 3) Which exercise are right for ME.  See your doctor and a qualified fitness professional before beginning any new program and get a personalized recommendation to ensure proper exercise selection and form.  For some hints on self-assessment, visit assessment.caryraffle.com
