To help you, put you and your family on track to a healthier, safer, and more fun workout, read this blog to know what’s true and what’s not when it comes to fitness tips.


Myth #1: The best time to work out is in early morning.

Truth: The best time for a workout is when you are most comfortable. Choose a time that is convenient which also allows you to exercise most consistently. Ideally, you want to make physical fitness a regular habit, so if late-night workout to the gym is your thing, stick with it. If you prefer a morning run, do that instead. 



Myth #2: Swimming is a great weight loss activity.

Truth: Swimming is a great exercise but unless you are swimming for hours a day, it may not be as effective in weight loss. Also, it may actually cause you to eat more than you normally would which will make it difficult for you to stick to your diet.




Myth #3: Exercise is the best way for weight loss

Truth: Weight loss almost always starts with significant changes made in your eating habits. In terms of weight loss, what you eat plays a much bigger role than exercise.



Myth 4: Weight training is only for men

Truth: Weight training is a great way to strengthen muscles, and has got nothing to do with gender. Also, studies suggest that hormone plays a role in determining the muscle strength.
