The UK’s gym bubble has only grown over the past few years, with more of us now, more than ever, attending the gym at least a few times a week! Both men and women are now more concerned with their fitness and physique, in order to feel better both inside and out.
There is now a massive range of gyms, classes and fitness programmes for people looking to lose weight, improve their fitness or generally keep in shape. From traditional gyms to martial arts to military style drill classes, there are so many options to make even the least motivated of gym-goers, jump up and get excited for an hour of exercise.
If you’re not sure where to start, it can be a great idea to get a personal trainer. There are tonnes of options and a broad price spectrum, so anyone can take advantage of learning techniques and forms from a trained professional. They’re great at delivering exercise and diet plans to fit your needs, whether you’re training for an event or simply trying to improve your fitness. Furthermore, a good personal trainer can teach you how to use the gym space most effectively and safely, this can prevent injury and ensure that you get the most out of your gym space, even at peak times when there’s limited machine space and you may have to improvise.
Running is now super trendy and is a great, easy and cheap way to get fit and make new friends. There are plenty of clubs and local groups that are free or charge a small weekly fee, that cater for runners of all skill levels.
