Do you do the same exercise routine every week and feel like you’re not getting anywhere? It doesn’t have to be that way. We are here to help you every step of your fitness journey.
- Ask for help!
Discuss your fitness goals with an instructor. You may not have spoken to an instructor since your induction so it may be an idea to book in a ½ hour session with them to re-visit your fitness goals. So if you want to tackle a 5K challenge or find out more about strength training, the instructors are on hand to offer you fitness advice tailored to your goals.
- Change your intensity
If you feel like your workouts aren’t challenging anymore how about gradually increasing the intensity. So, if you are taking 60 seconds rest between sets, drop the rest period. Or run / walk at a faster pace than you’ve done before. But remember to keep good form so you don’t get injured.
You can also get good weekly tips on sprucing up your workout through our LF Connect App. Not on LF Connect? Ask a fitness instructor how to sign up on your next visit.
- Try a group exercise class
Led by an experienced instructor they will help you get back on track in a group environment. Learn new workouts that will help you lose weight and tone up. Plus enjoy the social aspect of meeting new people who you can share your fitness experiences, workout tips, and nutritional advice. Have a look at the fitness classes we offer here.
- Bring a Friend
They will help you stay motivated. Scheduling a gym session with a friend helps hold you accountable and not only does meeting your friend at the gym motivate you to show up but you will probably work harder when you get there.
Training with a friend may introduce you to new things like strength training or group exercise classes, something which may be daunting on your own but with a friend it’ll make it easier.
- Try swimming
Swimming is an excellent activity to add into your weekly workout. Swimming is low impact on your joints, but it’s highly effective for a whole body workout.
If you’re not a swimmer or looking to improve we have adult swimming lessons to help you build your confidence giving you more reason to take a dip.
