Staying safe while you work out

by Wendy on January 19, 2015

We are gearing up for the busiest time of the year to kick in as summer holidays finish, and people jump back into the gym wanting to work off the Christmas excess. We are already seeing numerous members register for our upcoming 12 week challenge which is a great way to stay motivated and  smash those New Years resolutions,  however you won’t make it past the first week if you don’t take the time to learn how to perform your exercises correctly.

Good technique not only means that you are training the muscle in question effectively, but means that you are performing it in a way that won’t injure, potentially sidelining you from working towards your goals. The best way to check your technique? Have one of our fully qualified trainers take you through your program. Even better though, consider investing into regular Personal Training. You’ll not only be monitored for safe tecchnique, but will learn how to train with intensity and focus. They will push you harder than you would yourself and you WILL get results if you follow their instructions.

Why not talk to one of our trainers today and make this year count?!
