Hi Lo!!! thank you so much for the helpful info as usual:-) I am trying to switch to working at home more until i get more comfortable in the gym. I always look lost or fumbling through my phone trying to figure out what exercise to do nest… or how I should perform the exercise.. or looking up what terms mean in my work out plan LOL. So i have 2 questions! 1. what are some (basic )equipment you would suggest for home work outs that are not expensive (for step up’s etc)?
2. I love the gym, but i get fustrated because im so confused LOL…. do you have any advice or perhaps motivation when you first started out?
Also, would you suggest a personal trainer?? Do you think a personal trainer will give me quicker results? I feel like its going to take me forever to learn everything i need to know LOL.
thanks lo! HOpe your having a wonderful day 🙂
If you really love the gym, then I think that you should get over your fear.
Here are my tips for people with the same issue :
1, Write down on a piece of paper what you want to achieve with your body, example…More toned and healthy body with a bigger butt.
2, Next, check out online for free workout plans for upper and lower body
3, Write down or print those exercises out
4, Check out on youtube how to perform exercises many many times,until you can do them
5, Check out what machines or whatever they use in the workout plan and see if you can find them in the gym
6, Ask the gym stuff to help you out to find machines you need for the exercises in your workout plan.
7, Use headphones and listen to music that gives you power and strenght
If this does not work for you for some reason, it could be a good idea to hire a gym instructor for at least one session if you can afford.So he/shew can show you how to perform the exercise/s and what machines and stuff like that to use
Perhaps let them write you a workout plan,and let them show you what machines to use,and then you will make it on your own.
If you really want to train at home anyway, then I suggest that you do this:
1, Buy free weight plates like 5,10,20,30,40 lbs plates
2, A barbell and two bar dumbbells
3, Weight band/s different resistances
4, A squat rack, just something you can place the bar on if you do squat
5, A bench
That could be the first step, after time you can add more equipment and buy more free weight plates etc
Feel free to comment belove to give your advice to this lady how you first started out in the gym and what you did etc
