How to avoid the most common and costly gym mistakes!

The gym.

An Interesting place.

Do you like it or hate it?

The way they’ve changed over the years with all these fancy looking machines and bright lights makes what should be a simple place become confusing for the uneducated gym goer.

I reckon if I asked 99% of people I see in the gym what they’re trying to achieve from their session I’d receive a blank stare.

Which I have no issue with if someone just want to go get a sweat on and are happy doing so.

But here’s the thing that annoys me the most.

The person who goes to the gym then whinges they can’t get results.

First thing you need if you want results in the gym.

A GOAL (not sorry for shouting)

Being a nosy coach I observe what others are doing and well some of it’s comical.

The best is when people watch what I’m doing with a client then just copy it.

Heres 5 common mistakes I see A Lot.

1. No programme <<<<<< You need to follow a programme and recording your progress.

2. Poor exercise selection <<<<<<< Bicep curls or the treadmill/bike should not be the first thing you do.

3. Poor technique <<<<<<< Recipe for injury

4. Using exercise machines <<<<<<< your body is designed to move freely not sat down in a forced fixed position.

5. Pounding away on the treadmills for fat loss <<<<< You need a combination of resistance and interval training to shift those pounds quickly.

The gym should be a place you look forward to going to.

I’ve had many people say they find gyms boring.

It’s not until they learn to train correctly and start seeing results that they start to enjoy it.

If you make any of the mistakes above they’re easily changed.

Hire a qualified coach to help you.

If you wanna train for free in December (before you start paying in January) you’ve got until tomorrow to book your place.

P.S Don’t be like everyone else and wait until January
