Take a look around your gym, and you’ll probably see people who are doing the same cardio routines, day after day, without gaining noticeable improvements in their body shape or composition. Maybe you’re one of them. When, every once in a while, someone shows up with an enviously sculpted body, you may wonder: What is she doing differently?
The answer is: She’s probably training the right way for her body type — something 70 percent of people are not doing, according to Phil Catudal, a celebrated National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM)–certified personal trainer in the Los Angeles area.

“Each of us has a genetic and physiological design that determines our body type, or somatotype, and different body types have different responses to certain fitness programs,” says Catudal, a global health coach and the author of Just Your Type: The Ultimate Guide to Eating and Training Right for Your Body Type. (Full disclosure: I wrote the book with him from which the following tips come.) So it could be that you or the men and women you see at the gym are performing the right exercises the right way — but they’re optimal for someone else’s body type, not yours.
