Maximize Your Gym Workout
No one signs up for a membership hoping for mediocre results. Therefore, here is how to get the most out of a gym membership and regular workouts.
Get Inside The Door
The first step to realizing results is to go to the gym. Statistics indicate that within a month or two of joining a gym, attendance numbers dwindle even though people continue to pay for memberships when they are not going to the gym. Schedule time at the gym as you would any other activity. If you need motivation to go, enlist a friend to join and get you to attend.
Do Something You Love
Gyms cater to so many different workout experiences these days that gym-goers need not worry about getting bored with their fitness routines. Start out with an activity you enjoy doing, or experiment with different activities until you find one that you find enjoyable.
Work With a Trainer
Gyms employ personal trainers who can help novices learn the ropes. Members can rely on personal training sessions to familiarize themselves with a fitness regime and the proper training techniques. Trainers also can play key supportive rolls in members’ workouts, helping to keep clients motivated on those days when their enthusiasm is down. Greco’s legendary circuit training programs offer the best full-body workout in the shortest period and are suitable for all fitness levels. Our fitness specialists supervise our classes. It is personal training in a group environment.
Vary Your Workouts
Expanding your boundaries is a great way to push your body and maximize your workout. According to Jacob Wilson, Ph.D., certified strength and conditioning specialist and associate editor of the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, “… by only doing cardio your metabolism will actually go down, making weight loss more difficult. Resistance training, however, builds muscle to increase your metabolic rate.” Variety is the spice of life, and it’s also essential to effective workouts.
Fitness resolutions are popular, and there are several ways to realize those resolutions and get the most out of your investment in a gym membership.
