How to Get Fit in the Gym

Edited by Davesax1 and 32 others

Ever notice how most people in a gym aren’t really working out? Some are strolling on the treadmill reading a book. Others are chatting with their buddies while waiting to do another set – and hogging the machine of course. And how is it that most people in the gym look like they don’t work out or look the same no matter how long they’ve been going to the gym? There must be a better way. Here’s a start…

1. Walk in the door (the hardest part). No matter how tired you are, make two or three days a week mandatory in the gym. When you go doesn’t matter – just do it before you get home in the evening. You need to start with a commitment. And a first step.

2. Warm up. Five to ten minutes on the elliptical if you can, walk on the treadmill,     sit on the exercise bike, or any type of exercise to get your blood pumping and warm up your muscles.

3. Do less. Forget about three sets (unless you really are a professional athlete). One set of ten to twenty or so is enough. There does need to be enough weight to tire the muscle without straining. For most of us less really is more. If a workout is not as tedious, it’ll be easier to do on a regular basis. The concept in fitness circles is called supersets – and they really are.

4. Limit yourself to six to nine machines and twenty to thirty minutes. DON’T rest between machines. Use machines rather than free weights, especially when getting started. They’re designed to keep you in proper form.

  1. I usually never do warm ups at the gym even though I know I should!
