Body & Soul tackles fitness fears

Many people have reservations about going to a gym / fitness studio because of some common “fears” about gyms. Following are three of the most common gym fears that you don’t have to worry about at Body & Soul.

Feeling Stupid: Looking at most Functional Trainers, you expect them to transform and attack the city, but really they are a multi-purpose piece of equipment used for strength training. Without watching someone use this piece of equipment or being taught, how could you know how to use it properly (safely and most effectively)? If there is one thing Body & Soul trainers are known for, it’s their knowledge. Our trainers love demonstrating exercises and explaining how ‘things’ work, whether it be fitness equipment or the science behind muscle regeneration.

Being Isolated: Some people are afraid to join a fitness studio in fear of feeling like the ‘new kid’ — have no fear, our front desk staff are always more than happy to help you, whether it be setting you up on cardio equipment for your warm-up or taking you through a walkthrough of the studio to ensure you know where everything is. Also, many of our clients have formed friendships with one another after chatting in the changeroom or spending time on the cardio equipment together. You won’t be ‘new’ for long!

Body Image: Perhaps one of the biggest fears people have is that they think they should already be ‘fit’ before joining a studio. While many of our clients continue with us after reaching their goals, whether to maintain their fitness or pursue new goals, most of them started their journey wanting to ‘get fit’ as seen in goals such as increase strength, general fitness, improve flexibility, lose weight, etc. Most clients start their journey with us with the intention of increasing their level of fitness and they stay with us to maintain it!

Body & Soul is a great place to start your journey to optimal health.
