Are you Insane?

Rita Mae Brown once famously stated that "the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." I'm not sure if everyone at your gym is crazy, but don't you see the same people there day after day, week after week and nothing seems to change? The still look mediocre at best,and they feel worse and they wonder why.

Typically, these folks (please forgive me if you are one of them) get on the "human hamster wheel," otherwise known as a treadmill and do some cardio and maybe some weight machines. They get to the gym with no real plan so they do the same workout and granted this is better than no workout at all but by a mouse whisker.

The human body has a wonderful capacity to adapt to stimuli and if you give it the same triggers all the time, then you adapt and don't get much benefit. In order to maximize the benefit you get from the work, you have to change it up all the time. As example, at Charm City Kettlebells, we just don't do the same workouts from work out to workout. First off, I don't want to be bored, nor do I want you to be and also I want maximum results. You will be a "human billboard" for me because your friends and family are going to ask you what you are doing differently and you are just going to tell them are you finally sane!
