When you think of the gym, you think of big bodybuilders, perfectly toned bodies, people in much greater shape than you, and so much more. Then that sweaty body is something that can also put you off. And then topping that is the hard work to be done to achieve your goal. Here is a guide to the correct way to start your fitness journey that will help you be consistent and motivated.
Find a Partner: You do not have to do it alone. Drag someone along with you. It could be your family member, a friend or a colleague. You will feel more comfortable as you have someone familiar with you. Not to mention the added bonus of being able to keep each other motivated. You will make it to the gym when you know that your partner is waiting for you in the gym.
Consult a Professional: Make an appointment with the Fitness Advisor in the gym. It could be the Manager, Head Trainer or Fitness Manager. They will guide you and make a program for you keeping in mind your fitness level and your goals.
You will need to do a fitness assessment before you start – The trainer will take your body measurements and a few simple tests to analyse your physical abilities. Do not worry if you can not do too much at this stage. Everyone starts this way. Ask for a few sessions with a trainer so you can follow his/her guidance to understand the routines. Ask the personal trainer everything you want to know about the gym. How to use the equipment, how to train properly, the correct form to lift weight or even about nutrition. It is to avoid serious injury in the long run.

Creatine: The Best Forms
New products and formulations are introduced to the supplement market every day.
