Pro Tips from The Markham Gym Trainers

Here are some pro tips from the Markham gym trainers,

 

Hello Markham!

 

We see it far too often, and we wanted to address it; too many of regular gym goers do not think beyond their short term goals.

Its really important to start investing into long term benefits. Invest a few months at a time instead of a few short sited goals like fat loss for a vacation, or 10 lb weight loss for a wedding.

 

Here are some things that we see that made us write this blog:

 

❌ “Im going to train hard 2x a day for the next few weeks ~ even though never had consistent training more than a month”

 

❌ “Im going to avoid carbs next week ~ even though most of their diet comprises of sugary snacks, cake and juice”

 

❌ “Im going to enroll in a 30 day 30 lb fat loss program ~ even though it took 2 years to put that weight on”

 

THE TRAINERS HERE WANT TO SAY STOP!

LETS NOT BE EXTREME!

ALL OF THE ABOVE SCENARIOS FAIL!

BUT WHY?

 

✅ instead of tightening up & going 0-100; collect easy wins

 

✅ focus on how to keep bad habits in balance for the long term while being able to accomplish your goals

 

✅add veggies instead of calorie dense foods

 

✅divide training days into 3x a week to start

 

✅aim for 1 lb of fat loss weekly

 

At the end of the day balance is very important ~ youre not going to train 2x day for more than a few weeks, you Wont lose 30 in 30, and for sure youre gonna eat carbs… WHY WOULD YOU NOT? ITS TASTY 😋
