Gym Tips for a beginner

Njuguna is not obese yet though he likes to eat big meals, sometimes throws in nyama choma and beer on weekends a common past time.  He has tried doing some sit-ups and pushups at home but his pot belly won’t go and was looking for a quick fitness solution.  Apart from exercising, he would need to change his lifestyle and focus on eating a healthy balanced diet.

In order for him to enroll in one of best Nairobi Gym, he went shopping in the directories:-

In the listing it was easy for him to choose from the Gyms in Nairobi

Identified one which suited his needs:-

Convenient in terms of location to be precise within CBD,

Flexible hours – after work

Affordable

Good facilities and equipments

Since Njuguna has not been to a gym before here is what he has to hear every time he walks through the doors of his favorite gym?

Exercises for Beginners

Work outs – Doing regular exercises at a gymnasium

Warm-up – One has to start off on a simple exercise mat before any vigorous exercises

A warm up is also gentle exercise you do to strengthen muscles before you start exercising seriously. If you don’t do a warm-up you might pull a muscle pulling a muscle is painful and can stop you exercising completely for a while.

Warm up Tips

Touch your toes

Stretch your muscles in the legs and back

Next do sit-ups – These are good exercise for the tummy muscles or abs (Abs are abdominal muscles)

Next press-ups/pushups – These are hard work and to do at least fifteen. Well done

Now after warming up Njuguna has to do to push weights. This aims to builds his muscles by lifting weights up and down.  But in the case you are a lady and you only want to be slim, not be muscular, so you can move on to a running machine called a treadmill and you can run without going anywhere, this is why people who are not satisfied with their lives sometimes say they on a treadmill going no-where!

Sometimes running fast which is called sprinting, but its recommended to begin running slowly and steadily – is called jogging.

After this, you may feel tired so you can take a breather – it’s when you stop exercising for a while to catch your breath and relax until you’re breathing normally.

After the breather – back to work you can take bicycle that’s just for exercises know as exercise bike.

This is enough for the day and will keep you in good shape if you follow it strictly according to your fitness trainer.

Gym schedule for beginners?

It’s recommended to exercise 3 to 4 times a week and the rest of the days you need to rest.

In conclusion as you have seen that changing your everyday life can be a reality no more excuse, go on and make a positive step, live to enjoy it.
