How Long Will My Fitness Last?

An insightful comment from Coach Izzy at Next Step Conditioning Systems regarding fitness gains:

How long will the results last?
Unfortunately most people tend to think of results in linear terms, that is, they feel they can progressively climb to a level, and then keep doing the same work to “maintain”.  As many frustrated fitness enthusiasts can attest, the human body does not work in that fashion. To address the question directly, your results will last as long as the stimulus is novel but not overwhelming to your body. Add the optimal factors like sleep, nutrition, and stress management and unless they are well addressed, your results will suffer. Maintaining requires renewing. Always make sure to change your exercise strategically.
