Have you just joined a gym, but you’re not sure how to get started ? That’s all right. It’s completely normal to be a little overwhelmed by the number of equipment options. If you want to get started on the path to healthy workouts, you have to start somewhere. And no one ever regrets getting started.
Set a schedule.
The hardest part of starting a workout routine is often just showing up. A good way to keep yourself committed is to set a schedule. Start with just one day and time a week that works for you. Keep yourself accountable to this pre-scheduled event. Your body will thank you for it later.
Go in with a plan.
Figure out what you want to tackle – cardio workouts, free weights, classes – and stick to it. Not sure where to start? Ask the front desk. We love helping with questions just like that one!
Find a gym buddy.
Working out with a friend greatly increases your chances of success – by upwards of 85%. Having a partner for your fitness workouts means you are much more likely to keep going and push harder.
Consider a group fitness class or personal trainer.
Try new things. Ask questions. Reach out if you’re unsure. Chances are almost everyone at the gym has been uncertain about what to do at the gym at some point in their fitness journey, and Fitness Connection’s staff is trained to help.
