Gym memberships are not exactly cheap, so the best you can do is to take full advantage of what is being offered. You may not be doing things you could be doing. Make your membership pay off by reading the information below and get more value from the fee you’re paying month by month.
Step into the weight room and, as you make progress with your training, try out the heaviest ones. The big weights are there for a reason. These will take you to the next level. You don’t have to be the biggest bodybuilding guy at the gym to do that. The fast fibers in your musculature need the heavy weights, so don’t ignore them. Women benefit of this, too.
The Personal Trainer
Many gym clubs offer this very useful option. You can hire your own trainer to tailor your gym activity, help you reach your goals faster and be more effective during the time spent working out. However, to most this is a luxury. If you find it too expensive, you can share these sessions with a friend or two. Trainers who aren’t too busy will be eager to train pairs or small groups of people; it’s better than none.
Limit the Socializing Time
Naturally, the gym is a place where people feel inclined to talk to each other and discuss about what they’re doing, their progress and so on. However, socializing and small talk may take much more of your time than you realize. Chats are pleasant and therefore make time pass by quicker. You will not make too much out of your gym time if you indulge.

Make Sessions Shorter
This is good advice for beginners, for the busy ones or for those who tend to get bored easily. If you push it too hard, you will get tired of it sooner. People in this situation tend to waste a lot of time while in the gym and it’s all rendered ineffective. Simply opt for short sessions and you will stay motivated, feeling the experience as much more enjoyable.
Use the Cardio Equipment
Gym goers are usually fascinated by strength training equipment and ignore the machines for cardio. They assume that running outside the gym and such will suffice. Still, cardio is very important and should be incorporated to gym workout sessions. This is why those machines are there so next time go step on the treadmill or ride the stationery bike for some vigorous cardio training.
Get the Dumbbells
This represents a very simple piece of equipment and may seem boring, but it’s incredibly versatile and can help you develop so many muscles in your body. Get an instructor to show you the many ways to use them. The potential of dumbbells is incredible and it’s actually higher than that of machines.
In fact, you should try everything that’s included as long as it’s not harmful to you. You could discover new and exciting ways to keep fit or to relax.
