Can gym help?
I’m a frequent gym go-er – meaning I have been going to the gym 3 times a week almost without fail for the past 30 years. I am not saying I never had time off, but never more than a couple of weeks. Then it is back into my routine.
Where do most people fail? They sign up for a gym membership; and some are quite pricey. Some sign up to lose weight, some to get more muscle, some to socialize and only a few for serious long term work out results.
Let’s face it: most expect miracles to happen for them in the gym during the first few weeks. But reality jumps into their faces after the first week. It is hard work, sometime the whole body aches, because they are not used to work the muscles anymore. The motivation and enthusiasm to go to the gym drop.
Most over-estimate what they can achieve in the short term! Therefore, they could not get the real results they seek on a long term. The benefits of great results achieved over the long term are often overlooked and under-estimated. This is exactly what we need to understand. Step One is getting in shape – slim and fit. Step Two is keeping fit, slim, and energetic and staying healthy always!!
For most, not knowing or misunderstanding the concept of exercise and nutrition on a consistent and regular basis is the problem. The long-term impact on your body can be tremendous.

Know the difference between injury and DOMS
This is very important: The worst thing you can do to an injured body part is to exercise it at the gym. If you experience any sharp pain while moving a joint, have drastically limited movement, or develop any pain during your workout routine, stop immediately and seek medical attention.
However, serious injury shouldn’t be confused with Delayed Onset Muscles Soreness (DOMS). This is the soreness you feel the day or two after you work muscles you haven’t used in a while. While doctors aren’t quite sure what causes it, it is perfectly normal for this to happen — and it is safe to work these muscles out the next time you go to the gym.
Amp up your energy levels! One of the biggest mistakes people make when they start working out is not consuming enough of the right food to compensate for their newfound calorie burn. As you burn calories, your body will make you more hungry as a result so that it can keep up your energy requirements. Many people trying to lose weight are under the mistaken notion that they should ignore this hunger so that they can create a calorie deficit, and therefore drop pounds/kgs…
But by putting your body in a state of semi-starvation like this, you’re only going to make yourself more tired, fatigued, and physically weak — not an ideal state to be in if you want to get the most out of your gym visit.
Fortunately for you, the body is much more complicated than requiring starvation to lose weight. You can continue to exercise and lose fat (without burning muscle tissue) by eating a diet low in carbohydrates and higher in fat and protein (especially the former). Not only is this a more effective weight loss diet than low fat, but it’s healthier for your heart, and will not leave you feeling like you are starving or lacking energy.
