"Fitness 101 for beginners: Part 1 of 3"

Yes!!! You have decided to turn over a new leaf and change the way you have been living. Someone or something has made you want to get into shape and live a healthier lifestyle. Awesome! Welcome to the fitness family, but I know there could be some concerns. First, you have no clue where to begin. You step foot into the gym and you are overwhelmed. Its OK. Maybe 2daybefit can help ease you into this new life-changing event of getting into shape.

Approach fitness the same way you attack any new venture in life - low and easy but with focus and the determination to learn and conquer. Beginners don’t be afraid to ask for help, partner up with a friend, or get a trainer. These are all ways to help get you
started and assist you around the gym.  

As a trainer, the first thing we’re taught is safety. I suggest all newcomers to team up with a trainer or partner to learn the ropes. You do not want to injure yourself the first week or to cause injury to someone else. As you become familiar with your surroundings, you can then start training on your own.

As you begin to train alone, you should continue to refer back to a trainer to help guide and develop a program that will target your goals. Magazines, books, websites or any other fitness literature is a good way to learn more about training regimens and periodizing programs.

This is just the beginning of your new lifestyle and part 1 of 3 for beginner to the gym. Next week we’ll target meals. So stay focused and kick this new lifestyle’s butt.
