Keeping Your Interest in Fitness

August 8, 2013

This is a guest post by Julie.

It is said that variety is the spice of life and this could not be truer when it comes to maintaining a fitness regime. It’s easy to get stuck in a rut and simply stick to the same routine you feel comfortable with.

Sticking to the same routine and using the same pieces of equipment can also have an impact on the effectiveness of your fitness programme. Most personal trainers recommend a programme last around a period of four weeks for it to be most effective.


When looking to change your routine it can be hard to know where to start. Modern gym equipment can be confusing and slightly daunting. Even the most experience gym goers at one point have found themselves staring blankly at a piece of apparatus wondering where to start.

If your local gym has a personal trainer they will be able to advise on what each piece of equipment does, the muscles it works and the fitness benefits it provides. If you find it a bit daunting approaching the personal trainer all members of staff will have been trained in how to safely use their gym apparatus.

Fitness Warehouse provide some of the most modern fitness equipment in the industry and ensure that they give all fitness centre staff an induction on how to use the equipment safely and also how to ensure you get the best results. Cardiovascular exercise can become very repetitive and can lead to some people giving up on their fitness programme. To make sure you keep up the urge to tackle the gym on a daily basis you should try to make use of as many of the different Cardio machines available.

Treadmills and exercise bikes are the staple of most people’s cardio routines as they are easy to use and the benefits are clear to see. If you’re looking for something that offers a little more than just a cardio work out it’s worth giving either a cross-trainer or rowing machines a go. Not only do they give you a thorough cardio work out but they also help to build and tone muscle. More importantly they give you a great way to break up your routine and make sure you stick to your fitness programme and keep on track of your weight loss.

So get out of that fitness rut and try something new!
