As Toby has been on his holidays, we asked Personal Trainer Matt Dunn to step in and give us his tip of the month!
Spring in your step!
As March draws to a close its hard to believe that summer hasn’t arrived early. The spring weather has been unseasonably hot and Brighton and Hove seafront and beach has been busy with locals and tourists alike. The sunny weather is an incentive for many to move up a gear with their exercise routine in order to look and feel their best for the summer.
Most people like familiarity and routine which can lead to a training plateau if you are in the habit of doing the same exercises every time you come to the gym. If you want to stimulate change in your body then you have to approach your training differently – change the order of the exercises in your programme or substitute new exercises in place of familiar ones. Speak to one of our personal trainers about designing a new programme in order to overcome an exercise plateau and maximise the results of your effort in the gym.
One of the best ways of introducing variety into your exercise routine is mixing classes in with your gym work. As the evenings are getting lighter and the weather has been so warm and dry we have decided to take some of our classes outside onto Regency Square – weather and participants permitting! If you are a class regular, why not try a completely new and different class or add a gym session into your weekly routine and use some of the equipment, you’ll be surprised at how the variety can promote positive change!
