We get it. Working out at a gym can feel intimidating. Whether you’re stepping into a gym for the first time or after a hiatus, a little guidance can go a long way. Most of us know that regular exercise can reduce your risk of a heart attack, prevent weight gain, lower your blood pressure and risk of type 2 diabetes, so there’s no reason why we can’t find 30 minutes a day to move our bodies!
To prepare yourself for that first day back at the gym, follow our exercise guide full of workout tips to help you overcome your fears.

Ask a Buddy to Work Out with You
Working out with a friend, neighbour, or co-worker will not only make your sweat sesh fun, but it’s sure to help you feel more motivated, adventurous and consistent. You’ll be less likely hit your snooze button or flake after a tiring workday when you know someone is depending on you to show up. If it works then you could even start cleansing together too!
Find the Right Gym
When you have tireless toddlers – or two, even three! – the selling point of a gym might be the child care centre. There’s no way you could focus on your workout unless you felt confident that your children were not only in good hands but were also having fun.
Maybe your wish list includes amenities such as a pool, tennis court, sauna, or group classes. Don’t be afraid to explore your options and ask for a free trial. Most gyms will happily oblige.

Now that you’re pumped and ready for the gym, where do you begin? While it’s always good to meet with a personal trainer to acquaint yourself with the facility and set goals, we’ve also provided a weekly Fitness Guide for trainers of all levels to help you get started.
