Are you tired of unwanted body fat, extra pounds, or feeling tired and unfit? Unsure of how to start the path towards a healthy lifestyle? Many beginners quit even before they begin because they don’t know where to start. In this article, we finally clear out gym myths and assumptions and give you an insider primer on how to start being fit and healthy with Gold’s Gym, the country’s premier fitness center.
Myth #1: “Going to the gym is only for people who know how to use the machines. If I go to the gym, I’ll be out of place and I wouldn’t know where to start.“
False! Gold’s Gym will be your guide to the road to fitness starting from Day 1. Accredited and professionally-trained health and fitness instructors will assess you physically, taking note of factors such as lifestyle, medical conditions, and the like.
On your first few sessions, expect a lot of form signing (to ensure all your information is on proper record) and one-on-one assessment sessions with your assigned trainer. He/she will perform a series of simple physical tests and short interviews that will help Gold’s Gym gauge your fitness level and determine what you need to do in order to reach your goals. From them on, you will be given a clear set of goals (based from your input) and a clear plan of how to achieve it.
Myth #2: “I never have time to go to the gym! It’s expensive, so I’ll be wasting my money if I don’t even go!“
False! Gold’s Gym is unique as its operating hours extend up to 12 midnight on weekdays. With a 6am to 12am schedule and a handful of branches all over the Metro, it’s not too hard to squeeze an hour or two for a quick workout.
Myth #3: “I can do most of these workouts at home anyway!“
Maybe true, but probably false! Gold’s Gym has a unique set of equipment that you wouldn’t find anywhere else, promising a complete body workout with definite results. And besides, Gold’s Gym provides the perfect motivating ambiance which might be hard to find at home or anywhere else.
Myth #4: “The gym is boring and monotonous. I’ll end up quitting halfway.“
False! Gold’s Gym has lots to offer aside from their standard exercise and bodybuilding equipment. Their world-renowned Gold’s Group Exercise classes or GGX offer a lot of different workouts such as spinning, yoga, pilates, and even specialized classes such as martial arts and belly dancing. Gold’s Gym also boasts of unique facilities such as a studio and a boxing area for those looking for an exciting workout.
Myth #5: “The gym is full of beautiful, sculpted bodies. If I go, people will judge me.”
False! The Gold’s Gym community is a diverse family of all shapes and sizes. If you’re truly frightened, why not sign up with a friend? Encourage and support one another through your journey to fitness. As they say, it’s always better to workout with a friend!
