How to Ease Back to the Gym
We've been stuck at home and let's face it, it is easier to exercise at a gym than at home where we are unmotivated and don't have all the equipment. Here are some tips to ease back into your fitness routine at Club Fit.
· Work with a trainer. Club Fit has trainers who can help you with your technique and give you some motivation. They can also help you with the best routines for your specific goals. Ask at he desk for more details.
· Embrace low-intensity exercises. Even if you were once an accomplished athlete, take it slow when beginning an exercise regimen after a long layoff. Early on, the goal is to simply get your body acclimated to physical activity. As your body adjusts, you can begin to make your workouts more intense.
· Focus on flexibility. Sedentary bodies lack the flexibility of bodies more accustomed to exercise. While you are becoming more physically active, include stretching in your workouts and stop if you feel something tweak or suspect a pulled a muscle.
· Take days off. You may be tempted to push yourself hard, working out several days in a row without taking time off. But rest is an important component of an effective workout. Days off help the body repair itself and recover from vigorous activity.
Exercising for the first time or after a long layoff requires patience. Club Fit will help you get back into the swing of things. Connect with Barb at 503-266-6166, online at www.clubfithealth.com, Instagram or Facebook atClubfitcanby or core-fit-at-clubfit.
