How to Track Your Fitness Progress

Don’t be depressed if you don’t have that perfect body like a Hollywood bombshell. Instead, try to get your lost fitness back by joining any fitness club Mississauga. You will find plenty of gyms in the city but Wynn fitness gym Mississauga offers extra-ordinary training, smart equipment and reasonable fees as well.


On the road to fitness, stick to these rules to get better day after day.

Give Your Body Appropriate Time to Relax

If you are exercising hard to get your body into good shape, you should treat it every now and then too. Go and get a massage to alleviate any tension or stress you may be feeling. Or if you don’t fancy the massage, take a long, hot bath and soak your worries and any muscle soreness away.

Maintain that Uniqueness

Recognize that people are born with different genes, and come in all shapes and sizes. Your body is unique to any other.  Know that as you are working to build a better body, that you’re already lucky to look as good as you do right now. Make the most of what you have and enjoy!

Track Your Progress

Once you’ve decided on how you want to build your better body, assess your current state then tracking your progress along the way.

Here are a few ways to get a well-rounded and accurate picture of the current state of your body:

·        Weight

If you’ve joined a gym Mississauga for weight loss, weigh yourself before you begin and track your progress weekly. Weigh yourself at the same time of the day on the same set of scales for the most accurate result. Don’t weigh in daily, as hormone levels and other factors can lead to fluctuations.

  • Energy levels

Is your digestive system working well? Do you have the energy to do all the things you want to? And do you generally feel happy, healthy and fit? Ask these sorts of questions to assess your body’s health too.

  • Skin folds

Although skin fold assessments are based on a population average, measuring key areas such as your bicep, triceps, stomach and back can show you how much fat loss you have achieved. This is often more accurate than what the scales say. Compare your skin folds at the beginning of your program and then again at two months. Best to get a fitness professional to help you with this.

  • Flexibility, strength and cardio

To gauge flexibility, see if you can touch your toes standing without bending your knees. To measure your general strength try 10 push -ups, 10 sit-ups, 10 tricep-dips and 10 lunges now, and see how much easier these are in two or three months. To test your cardio fitness, go for a jog and see how long you can last before having to walk. Time yourself now and again in a couple of months.

  • Clothes

You will know if your clothes are feeling on the loose or tight side. So note the size of your clothes and how they are fitting at the beginning of your program and then again after two months to see how you are going.
