New year – new gym programme

Post borrowed from Actuate Personal Training

personal trainerJanuary is a popular time for lots of people to start going to the gym. But most fail to keep up the good work within 2 weeks. This is often due to a lack of a planned approach to attacking their goals and a new year gym programme. There are a lot of things to consider:

  • how to use the equipment
  • how much rest to have in between sets
  • what are sets and reps
  • how often to exercise
  • how often to do the same workout
  • what muscle groups are being worked
  • what is best for weight loss or muscle gain

It’s no wonder that 80% of January gym memberships don’t continue. The simplest way to get past these hurdles is to hire an expert. You wouldn’t take up archery, martial arts or gymnastics without employing a coach to show you how so why approach the gym in a different way. A personal trainer can show you how to use the machines/weights, explain exercise selections, work on muscle imbalances and give you a bespoke plan to suit your needs.
