Whether you’re new to exercise or already a fitness enthusiast, it is important to be realistic about your fitness level so that you can determine what exercises are appropriate for you and can be done safely without injury. When referring to beginner, intermediate and advanced levels, the level of intensity is attributed to experience, knowledge and time spent achieving specific fitness achievements. Finding the ideal workout that is right for you can be made simple as long as you know what level you fit into. Each fitness level can offer a challenge, and everyone will have strengths as well as areas to improve. Knowing your abilities and limits will help you reap the benefits of a program that is tailored to accommodate your fitness level.
The Differences Between Fitness Levels
Something to note is that your fitness level can vary from one workout to another. For example, you may be at an intermediate level in Spin and a beginner level in Weights, or an advanced level in Zumba and an intermediate level in Boot Camp.
One of the best ways to determine your overall level of fitness and keep you on track to achieving your goals is to book a Health & Wellness Assessment with one of our fitness professionals. These assessments will evaluate your current fitness level and lifestyle, so as you travel through your fitness journey, you will be able to see and measure your progress. We will consult with you on your goals, past fitness history, medical concerns and physical limitations. And together, we will create a plan focusing on SMART goals which are crucial to staying focused and on the path to success.
Stay positive, determined, motivated and patient. Remain focused on your own body to achieve success. Within time, you will feel confident, gain experience and will know when it is time to progress to the next level!
