About seven months ago my husband and I decided to start going back to the gym and signed up for a membership. Getting back into the groove of working out was definitely a challenge and it took my some time to try and figure out where I was most efficient. I wasted so much time on either machines or equipment that I simply hated and found that I was lazy or just not into the workout. When I finally started stepping out of my comfort zone and trying new equipment, I was finally able to discover which workout stations were meant for me… and thus I was getting in much better work outs each time! I have come to the conclusion based on personal experience that .I believe that knowing your workout type is so incredibly important if you are dedicated to getting a good workout in every time!
For the longest time when I would arrive at the gym I had it in my mind that the bike or treadmill was a staple in every workout. So very reluctantly I would hop onto the treadmill, spending every minute checking the timer and waiting for it to be over. I would end up spending about 30 minutes bored out of my mind and not putting all of my effort into working out. Then at the end of the week I would be frustrated that I wasn’t seeing any results despite all the time I was spending at the gym. What I didn’t realize at the time that doing workouts that you enjoy can help you create and sustainable routine that you actually enjoy. Once I got it out of my head that the treadmill just wasn’t for me, I started discovering equipment that I did love and was really looking forward to my workouts! Only then did I start seeing the results I wanted because I was actually putting effort into my workouts. There is no doubt about it that when I started to familiarize myself with the workout types that were for me… I started to succeed!
