What to do in the gym when it’s mega busy!
Firstly, I want to start by saying - I hope you had a great Christmas! Ate good food, came off your phones and enjoyed your families company or just enjoyed the time alone.
Now that’s over everyone will be rushing to sign up for a gym membership, highly motivated by the weight you put on during Christmas and before.
The common belief is cardio = weight loss so when you join and go to the gym expect the cardio area to be full, every machine in use and maybe even a queue, it has been know to happen.
The best thing to do if you haven’t been to the gym in a long time is to go and find a space you can stretch, do mobility and basic movement work every machine will be taken with everyone going a 1000 miles per hour to smash their resolution of weight loss and unfortunately almost all of them will fail, it sucks but it’s true!
So why do the same as everyone?!
Find a spot in the gym when you can practise movement, learn to body weight squat, pain free and perfectly, learn to do press ups, lunges, planks etc, just work on the basics, get used to coming to the gym, at the moment making it a habit is the most important thing, it’s going to be boring and frustrating, but if you can preserve through this month the gym gets quieter around mid Feb, and then you get a proper plan together you can understand the trends in your gym, for example, Monday in my gym everyone is on everything, then Tuesday it’s mostly upper body equipment.
Find your gym trends, stick to the basics at first, body weight movements and mobility, then attack the gym and get your results from mid Feb onwards, if you genuinely don’t know what to do,
Make sure you invest in a good PT, I promise you it pays off, a good PT will make sure you get your results and will make sure they stay!
Speaking of which if you want to start in the best way and get ahead of the pack, let me coach you, book your consultation today!
