Almost every single human on the planet has struggled with body image and weight loss at some point in their lives. Because of the media and social pressures feeling good about our bodies has become a daily struggle.
While I thoroughly believe you shouldn't start a weight loss/fitness journey for anyone but yourself, I also believe that striving to become a healthier and stronger person can never be bad thing. Who doesn't want to be that toned person at the gym that can lift double their own body weight on the squat racks or do an unassisted head stand during yoga class? Being fit really does improve your lifestyle, mood and energy level overall.
There's tons of fitness guides and programs on the market that are all claiming that you'll lose weight and get fit fast if you follow their plan. But which ones actually work and which ones are actually realistic?
We reviewed a bunch of fitness plans available for purchase online and these are the best ones that are actually realistic to follow and will help you reach all of your fitness goals!
