5 Things To Remember When Going Back To The Gym After a Hiatus:
Start Small: When you go from rarely (or never) working out and jump into a fitness routine you don’t want to do too much too quickly. I recommend starting out small, doing short sessions on each of the machines you feel comfortable using or joining a beginner’s fitness class. If you need to take a break, don’t be afraid to do so. You have to build up your stamina and you will be able to do longer sessions over time. Most gyms offer a service (sometimes free with your membership), where a trained staff member or fitness trainer will help walk you through the gym, how to use each machine and even create a fitness routine for your level, including a warm up, cool down, and stretches. This is absolutely worth looking into! If you’re working out at home, make sure you are following a regime that is within your fitness level range and always remember to warm up your body before getting into it so you don’t pull a muscle.
