Having a fear of the gym is normal, especially if you’ve never worked out in a fitness center before. At the gym, people are minding their own business and doing their own thing. There is no reason for you to feel intimidated. Chances are other gym members don’t even notice you. They are focused on getting fit and not worried about what other people think of them. So, the first thing you want to do is get over your fear of the gym. It’s easy to do when you work out at Youfit. Here, you’ll find nothing but a warm, welcoming atmosphere. Our team of instructors and certified personal trainers are here to help you succeed.
Here are a few tips on how to make the most of your gym experience:
• Visit the gym on off-hours. Usually, there are times, either in the late morning or later in the evening, when a fitness center crowd thins out. It may help ease your stress level to work out in a less crowded atmosphere. This means the exercise facilities will also be more accessible. No one will be standing over you impatiently, waiting for a turn. Visiting the gym at an off-hour is guaranteed to make your gym experience less stressful because you can take your time and go at your own pace.
• Try Circuit training. Get in and out of the gym fast. In just 30-minutes, you are in and out. Youfit’s Express 30-minute interval circuit training is very popular. Here, you’ll use a variety of machines to get in a full-body workout that is timed. You’ll go from one machine to the next, and before you know it, you’ve completed the circuit.
• Tailor a fitness program specifically for your fitness goals. The personal trainers at Youfit, called YouCoaches, are always available to help you. Perhaps you’d like one of them to personalize a fitness routine just for you. When you have a clear picture of your fitness goal in mind, you’ll feel better about yourself. That means feeling more confident about going to the gym. Visit a personal trainer at Youfit, for all the details.
• Exercise with a buddy. Everyone says exercising with a friend takes the stress out of using the machines alone. It helps to have a friend nearby to show you the ropes. Fitness experts agree that working out with a pal also helps motivate each of you to get to the gym more often. You will also have a friend to talk to while you use the machines or lift weights.
With YouFit, You Can Squeeze in A Workout Any Time of The Day!
Most fitness experts would agree that there is no optimal time of day or evening to work out. The best time is your choice. Some people like the morning routine and are up at the crack of dawn. Perhaps you like to get up early and greet the day. Others want to exercise after work. When the day is over, a workout will alleviate stress after a long day at the office. Studies show that exercise can combat stress and anxiety, leaving you in a happier mood overall. Then there is lunchtime. It’s a break in the middle of the day, which may be well worth considering. Recent studies show that working out during lunchtime instead of chowing down on a heavy lunch could help you feel more relaxed and recharged for the rest of the day!
