Starting out in a gym can be daunting. Everyone is at a different stage of fitness. What works for one person might be too little or too much for another.

We’ll never say it’s going to be easy but we guarantee you will move you from beginner to intermediate and beyond smoothly. You will gain the knowledge of how to workout out properly, what works for you.

When starting out:

Go at your own pace

Push yourself but try not to overdo it and become so sore that you have to skip your planned workouts for multiple days in a row.

We’ll say this a lot, the key to results is consistency, not superhuman performances.

Focus on how you feel

You’re in control

Remind yourself that you are in control of your workout experience and that can be a game changer for many people’s motivation and confidence.

Changing an exercise or number of sets (how many times you perform the exercises) is okay.

People in the gym are thinking of themselves

Everybody is in the same boat. We’re all in the gym trying to improve ourselves and that’s where everyone’s focus is. It’s not on you, it’s on themselves.
