A personal trainer will ensure clients are performing exercises correctly and efficiently. They are there to correct your form and technique, to be able to promote your training and to prevent an injury (if your form is not correct, you are at an increased risk of injury). In order to maximise your results you need to be training the correct way and if you’re not sure if you are, maybe a personal trainer would be beneficial to you.
As you know we’ve been watching and hearing all about your hard work again last month and as a result members of the month for September are Peter and Jackie Baylis! YES YOU HAVE READ IT RIGHT… We have TWO! We have noticed a hard working couple in the gym and we wanted to reward them with the member of the month award.
Well Done Peter and Jackie!
Let’s find out more about them– Our Members of the Month…
This month’s exercise of the month is the good old-fashioned plank and its variations to make it less or even more challenging.
Yes the plank can get even harder than the standard straight line position! Holding the plank takes strength and endurance in your abdominals and back so the core needs to be strong to be able to progress on to another more challenging variation. A plank is great because as well as working your core muscles, your gluteus maximus and hamstrings are working to keep this position and it can help to improve your posture in the long run.
Halloween is just around the corner and all the sweet treats may tempt you to stray from your fitness and healthy eating routine. However fear not, we have a few healthier options for you to try instead…
It’s that time of the month again where we award one of our hard working members with Member of the Month!
Instead of just giving you one exercise for this month, we have chosen one machine instead, and it’s a machine that can provide a full-body workout.
It definitely looks mean and scary, but this machine is very versatile and, after you warm up, you can use this machine to target most muscle groups. And the best news is that we have THREE multi-pulley machines here at Palms! Not only that, we’ve also put together a workout plan you can follow so you make the most of the equipment. You can thank us later!
On Wednesday 26th September 2018 it’s National Fitness Day and we have plenty in store to keep you busy and motivated throughout the week leading up to National Fitness Day. Keep your eyes peeled and join in where you can!
Be Consistent. People say it takes 21 days to make something become a habit, so keeping your gym routine going for 21 days could most definitely improve your lifestyle in the long run and you’ll become a more healthier you. Here at Palms we provide a personal programme included in your membership and this can be renewed every 6 weeks.
Remember: A workout is meant to be challenging, no one ever said exercise was going to be easy!
Walking into the gym for the first time can be daunting and scary but it’s not as bad as you think… everyone is in the same boat and those who are more experienced in the gym are willing to help you.
It’s our favourite time of the month, where we get to pick a shining star. A beacon of motivation for all our members, someone who inspires us to reach our goals. As always, picking just one Member of the Month is difficult when there are so many members working extremely hard every time they step through our doors, but after much debate we’ve managed to choose our Member of the Month for July… This lady pushed herself to the limit every time she entered Palms and recently has exceeded in beating her dead lift PB! So…
