1) What to wear
Don’t feel silly for asking this question.
You don’t have to go out and dish out hundreds at Lulu or Nike for your first gym visit, wear clothing that allows for full range of motion and you are comfortable in. Follow these quick tips:
2) Gym etiquette
3) Start with a class
I always recommend newbies to start with a class rather than flying solo on their first couple of visits. This is because you learn proper technique under the guidance of the trainer but you also are surrounded by people that were beginners once too. Classes are also a great way of getting ideas of what to incorporate into your own sessions when you want to start training on your own.
4) Get a trainer
Many gyms offer a free introductory session with a trainer to get a program or introduce the equipment. Inquire when signing up or ask at reception to see what services are offered specifically for beginners. Even just one session with a personal trainer can point you in the right direction based on your goals and what you want to get out of your workouts.
5) Don’t be afraid to ask for help
Many gyms employ trainers outside their one-on-one sessions to walk around the gym floor and help. Not sure how to use something or how many reps to do? Ask at reception or a trainer if there is one floating around, they will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
