I had an interesting conversation with a woman who is looking to get more strength in her legs and wanted to use a bike. What she was looking for is a bike with no resistance because when it is hard to pedal, her legs hurt.
Many times as a fitness professional, you have those straight forward, yet simple, discussions about challenging yourself. I get that many don’t like to exercise, however, if you want to get better, in this case getting stronger legs, you have to get uncomfortable! There is no way around that.
If you are new to exercise, it is always best to build a base. You don’t want to rush this as that can lead to injury and push your fitness back. Gradually increasing what you are doing is the safest way to improve your fitness level and ensure that you will be doing it for a long time!
Until next time…
