Everyone who joins a gym does so with the intention of getting fit and healthy, however that doesn’t mean that there aren’t a few safety tips that we should also be aware of. Thankfully, the team here at Fitness Training Solutions have put together a list of the ones we have seemed most important…

  • If you are an avid gym attendee, you will hear numerous times the importance of the warm up and the cool down. Unfortunately, we’re here to repeat it! Extensive research into these activities has shown that they are the most effective strategy when it comes to preventing an injury and that is why it is imperative that they are never skipped during a session at the gym.
  • You should never advance something until your body is ready. In fact, your body will benefit more if you increase the time, intensity or reps gradually rather than suddenly. If we try to push ourselves before we are ready, we risk a serious injury. When it comes to strength, begin with light weights and increase the reps you do before adding any more weight and when it comes to cardio, increase your time before increasing your speed.

The gym can be a great place to meet new people whilst working out and relieve some of the days stress however it is also a place where safety must be respected.
