Working out a fitness plan

I decided that for me to get fitter, I also needed help in putting together a fitness plan which I could stick to.  “Creating a fitness plan is one of the best ways to be proactive on your health. Simply by exercising for 30 minutes to an hour each day, you can reduce your chances of getting cardiovascular diseases, injuries, diabetes, and much more.”  Read more here http://www.grossmanwellness.com/blog/why-you-need-a-fitness-plan

Working out a plan with my personal trainer

I was not sure what to expect when I made the appointment to see my personal trainer.  He started of by finding a bit about me,  the reasons why I wanted to be fitter, what my goals where and how many times I aimed to use the gym. This I found refreshing as it helped him to have a better understanding of my needs.

As he started designing my plan, he also asked me what equipment I liked using and which once I found challenging.  After a while, with me watching and answering a few questions along the way, he designed a plan for me to last an hour as that’s how long I am able to go to the gym 3 times a week,

 

Correct way to use the equipment

Even though the previous wee, another instructor had showed me how to use the machines, my fitness instructor still went around with me to make sure I was able to use the machines on my plan correctly and to make sure the weights were ok for my level. After this session round, I felt more confident to follow my plan, which we will review as we go along. I have been to previous gyms where I just got on with using machines with no guidance. I would for sure recommend if you go to the gym to make sure you know how to use the machines properly to get maximum benefit.

 

Please let me know how you getting on with your fitness plan, together we can  become fitter and healtheir.
