“In the past, I thought you just had to diet and not worry about exercising,”

“One of the most common myths is that we can spot train the body. So if we do a lot of abs, we’ll lose fat in the abs; leg exercises thin the thighs. That’s not true. We lose fat over the entire length of the body,”

“If we come in here and burn 300 calories, then go to McDonalds and eat a Big Mac, [you] just undid the hour and a half workout,” trainer Shana Crouse said.

Trainer Shana Crouse said people often think “no pain, no gain”. But she said workouts should be challenging, not painful.

“In the grand scheme of things, if your knees and back are hurting, you’re probably doing something incorrectly,” Crouse said.

Crouse also said getting in shape involves the entire body.

“One of the most common myths is that we can spot train the body. So if we do a lot of abs, we’ll lose fat in the abs; leg exercises thin the thighs. That’s not true. We lose fat over the entire length of the body,” Crouse said.

The bottom line is to get educated before you begin working out. Crouse said with the proper training you can get the results you are looking for.
