Want to hit the gym but unsure where to start?
If you are new to the gym we understand it can be a daunting experience.
We have put together a list of tips to help you feel more confident in the gym.
When you sign up you should receive an introduction and tour of your new gym! This will help you understand the layout and equipment. Some gyms even offer brief explanations on how to use the equipment - just ask!
Going to the gym at a time you know will be quiet is a great way to make yourself comfortable with the exercise machines (with minimal people around). If you are unsure of when the best time to attend would be, ask the staff and they should be able to help.
Arrive with a plan! Plan out your workout before you get to the gym so you know what machines and areas you want to use. If you are nervous to move around the gym, base your workout around one station/section of the gym.
Do you have your exit buddy?! Exercising with a friend is a great way to build confidence in the gym. Not only can you help each other with workouts and equipment, having a friend can keep you motivated for your sessions!
If your gym offers classes, this could be a fun way to get to know people who also attend your gym and an easy way to get a workout in that you don’t have to plan yourself.
Not sure where to start or what equipment to use? Our WRKout with DB Programs offer structured workout programs featuring the principle of progressive overload for gym based training.
Each workout offers exercise demonstration videos with form instructions so you can be confident in your technique.
