When people want to do something for their health such as losing a few pounds or building up their muscles, motivation is hardly ever the problem. What can be a problem for some, especially beginners, would be that they don’t know about the most suitable exercises to do.
And if you don’t know about the right routines or the right equipment, how would you ever lose those pounds or get this amazing sixpack you might have seen in a magazine somewhere.
Now, there are several things we can do.
You could go out and get yourself and study several good books about exercising. You might want to surf the web to check the countless websites which routines and tips and so on.
But sooner or later you will realise that you will spend a lot of time with this “research” rather than actually doing something for your body. And this is why I always tell people to sign up with a good gym would I have a qualified trainer on hand.
Depending on your spending budget you could even get a personal trainer who is dedicated to you only.
Another good way to go about this would be to look whether a fitness gym offers specialised training classes. This is my personal favourite since this is usually more affordable than getting yourself a personal trainer. There will always be a qualified trainer leading the class so you won’t need to worry about researching routines at all.
Simply call up or visit in person the gyms in your neighbourhood to see whether they offer such complete training classes. I know that London Fields does, but of course this can vary depending where you live. If you found a good gym that offers such classes, like Pilates classes in Hackney or similar, it’s something where your money will be well spent, rather than wasting it on a fitness gym membership without competent guidance.
