Many people fear going to the gym 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 and not knowing what to do: Looking at most Functional Trainers, you might expect them to transform and attack the city, but really they are a multi-purpose piece of equipment used for strength training. Unless you take the time to watch someone use this piece of equipment or receive a 1-on-1 lesson, 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 and excitement in sharing what they know with clients. Our personal trainers love to demonstrate exercises and explain how ‘things’ work, whether it be fitness equipment or the science behind muscle regeneration.
- Being isolated: Are you afraid of joining a gym and looking like the ‘new kid’ – have no fear, our front desk staff are always more than happy to help you get started, 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. We promise, 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 gym which is absolute nonsense. 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 increase strength, improve their overall 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. Still not sure? Call us to book a consultation and sit down with one of our personal trainers to talk about your health and fitness goals and find out how we can help you achieve them. Our front desk staff will take you through a studio tour and help get you acquainted with our studio!
