Whenever a client comes to me with the goal of losing fat, they always ask, “How long do I have to walk/run on the treadmill?” Well, they become very shocked when I reply, “You don’t have to even touch a machine. In fact, you don’t have to do traditional cardio.”
Let me explain: people still think they must be a slave to a treadmill (or other “cardio” machine) in order to lose fat, get a better body, and get healthy. It’s just not the case. In fact, there are other training methods that could get you results faster and in less time.
First of all, if you hate doing something (such as spending endless time on a machine), what makes you think you’re going to be consistent? If you’re not consistent, you won’t get long lasting results. It’s as simple as that. Plus, who has the time to spend hours per week on a machine?
Instead of spending time on a machine, I suggest other, more effective, alternatives.
