8 Common Mistakes People Make At The Gym

February 25th, 2015
weights 1.  Not warming up Unless you want to risk pulling a muscle, you definitely should not skip your warm-up. It’s common to skip a warm-up due to being pressed for time, or wanting to get right into the workout. Try to plan ahead, giving yourself enough time at the gym so that you are not rushed. If your gym is walking distance, a great warm-up is to speed walk to the gym instead of driving or taking transit. In general, a brisk speed walk, even on a treadmill at the gym, is a good warm-up for your muscles. 2. Arriving unfocused Many of us often arrive at the gym tired or frenzied, rather than focused on achieving an intense workout. If you’re distracted, fatigued or stressed, tell yourself that for one hour you will be extremely focused on your workout. Reconvene mulling over personal issues afterwards. To avoid feeling fatigued at the gym, try drinking an organic green juice for energy and vitality before your workout, or drink a pre-workout energy drink. 3. Always doing the same workout routine Once your body gets used to the same workout routine and the same exercises, your results will hit a plateau. If you mix up your routine, introduce new exercises and introduce heavier weights, you will see better results faster. By sticking to the same old regime, you’re limiting the potential results. A great way to try new exercises is to attend a group fitness class at Club16 Trevor Linden Fitness. 4. Poor technique and poor form There are many exercises which result in remarkable transformations in the body if done correctly. However, poor form or technique can diminish results. For example, done in proper form, squats target the glutes beautifully and transform the look of your derrière. Poor squat ... ... Read More

1. Keep moving! Walk or take the stairs every day

You don’t have to be a world-class athlete to get fit—you just have to move. And you don't need hours to walk for fitness. Even someone with a very moderate level of fitness can walk a mile in 15 to 20 minutes. And you can do it. Walking is wonderful for your body and your mind. It builds lean muscle, gets your blood pumping, burns calories, reduces risk of cancer, works your heart, lowers incidence of osteoporosis, reduces stress, enhances immune function, and improves digestion, all while you take a break outside. And if it's too cold, take a break at work on the stairs or in the hallway. All you need is 5,280 feet to walk, or 1,609 meters! And while you're at it, switch from the elevator to the stairs. Stair climbing is a fantastic resistance exercise that strengthens your heart rate and legs. Even if you don't set aside special stair climbing time, just taking stairs ... ... Read More

Resolutions That Matter In 2015

February 3rd, 2015
fitness training-traben-trarbach-banner Seriously, do things like New Year's resolutions really matter anymore? Yes, they do, and here's the quick version of why that is. Resolutions don't need to be a negative comment on the past or an admission of defeat. At their best, resolutions are an act of thoughtful reflection, of manifestation. Even if 2014 was the best year of your life, it's still a great idea to focus on all of the positivity that is yet to come. There's nothing wrong with change, and hoping for something to change is not the same as expressing dissatisfaction with your life now. Life is always changing anyway, whether we want it to or not. Instead of clinging to a rock in the river, navigate! Fix your sights on the horizon and make your way where you'd like to go. That's what resolutions help you do. So what resolutions matter this year?

Exercise

Wouldn't it be amazing if you could fight stress, boost your mood, improve your performance at work, keep yourself from getting sick, and look even better than you do now? Actually, it's all within reach and not that amazing, because these are all benefits of even moderate amounts of exercise.

Prioritize People You Love

You will never look back on your life and wish you had washed more dishes or spent more time at work; you just won't. Take that extra time with people you care about, right now, while you have it. Day by day as it becomes habit, you'll find that you're a much happier person.

Start Cooking Real Food Again

You don't need to be a gourmet or hours of time to cook real food. You just need access to fresh food and a search engine: no problem! If you try even once a week all ... ... Read More
