10 Rules of Fitness
1. Set Realistic Goals.
Lofty goals can be discouraging and keep you from continuing
your fitness regimen. Be sure to set realistic goals.
2. Come to the gym 3-5 days a week.
Going to the gym should be fun. You don't want to burn
out and lose interest so give your body a break.
3. Use different machines.

leading to a progress plateau. Change it up!
4. Learn how use the equipment properly.
If you try to teach yourself you may form bad habits or
hurt yourself. Hire a Synergy lifestyle coach to show
you the ropes. Educating you is their job and reaching
your fitness goals is their mission.

Aerobics are great for improving your endurance, and may

various types of exercise into your routine.
6. An hour is all you need!

and not on socializing, an hour is plenty.
7. Eat a balanced Diet.
Do not deprive your body of specific food groups. A body

a Synergy lifestyle coach.
Three months is adequate time for the body to undergo transformation.
