Beginners Guide to the gym 

Being new to gym is never easy. Staying consistent is much harder but if you want result one must put in the work. I created a list of what I believe is the most important when being a newbie. 


1) Focus on you

Go to the gym and worry about you. People are there to better themselves, don’t waste time comparing and belittling yourself for any reason. Focus on your self improvement. Find something to concentrate as your pushing through the exercise, it’s helps with forgetting 

2) Start easy

Do what you can, better to be safe that hurt yourself doing to much weight. Don’t be afraid to start with low weight. Set goal to increases weight through time. Do what feels comfortable to you we’re all at a different points. I can stay on one weight, on one machine for a month, and on others I increase 5 -10 pound every two weeks. 

3) Be consistent 

Make a schedule and stick to it. Even if you decided to workout 3 times a week, it’s not big deal as 3 times will increase as you being to love, and crave fitness. I recommend when going to the gym having a set idea of what u want to work out, and creating a plan to get the most of your time. 

4) Don’t give up! 

Even when things get tuff stick out, you’ll be proud of your accomplishment. Because I’v been there I also want to add, don’t get lazy one day as it will become a chain and you’ll be back at square 1. In addition if you do, don’t beat for self up, you can start over today. 

This has been my formula for Conquering newbie stage, if any one had any other advice few welcomed to leave a comment. 🙂 

I have an extremly long way to go,but I am Happy with my progress. #BabyMuscels

    so very well said… i have hit gym just to be back to square one. its tough. especially those initial 3 months are. i have observed if anyone persists for more than 3 months.. they’re there… but those initial months are tough.. really tough…

    i think physical goals is the biggest motivators… people go to gym for they fear diseases/illness.. i believe having fitness goals act as much better motivator!!

    Indeed a very good post 🙂 thank you 🙂

    1. That’s a really good observation as I’m in my 3 month mark and it was tough! Now I’m starting to feel it becoming easier and just something I do. I love to watch, Heidi Somers, YouTube channel as she has a lot of workout videos that are inspiring. To see her happiness from going from super skinny to fat and then buff in a oft she loves is priceless! Don’t give up on your fitness goals as that will bring bliss to ones life. Thank you for this comment 🙂

      1. It’s okay you can always go tomorrow and maybe do a small home workout towards the night to get you prepared for tomorrow, 5 push-ups 5 squats, 5 sit-ups ? That’s only 15 ! (If you feel better you can do 5 more of each) You can do it Bella, I like to do this to set the tone for tomorrow, and to few accomplished for the day 🙂
