Setting Achievable Fitness Goals at Gold’s Gym in Douglasville
Congratulations! The first step toward fitness is often the hardest – making that commitment to improve your health and begin a regular exercise routine. The next steps are equally as important. Gold’s Gym in Douglasville understands that encouragement and support are crucial to those beginning an exercise plan, and we offer personal training to get you started – and keep you going on your fitness quest. Whether you’re seeking a weight loss solution or looking for new ways to bolster your exercise routine, consider these suggestions as you begin:
- Set goals you can achieve. Dreaming big is great – it’s a vision to accomplish, an objective to work toward. However, setting goals too high initially can be discouraging. Break it down into small bites – focus on goals you know you can achieve right away. This strategy builds your self-esteem and allows you to feel good about what you’ve accomplished. A personal trainer works with you to assess your fitness level and physical abilities – then guides you to gym activities you’ll enjoy –with suggestions for frequency and intensity of exercise. Based on your preferences, Gold’s Gym has numerous services and amenities from which you can choose.
- Build gradually. Take the time to learn proper form and technique from your personal trainer, and give yourself time to really master each level. Individual workouts — such as aerobic training in our Cardio Cinema or strength training with our selection of free weights and strength machines – can be achieved on single station equipment at your own pace.
- Stick with it. Sometimes it’s difficult to maintain a routine, but have confidence and give yourself time to develop and nurture your new routine.
- Reward yourself. Recognize your accomplishments and give yourself a pat on the back – you earned it! A soothing soak in the hot tub or our steam room would be a fantastic way to acknowledge a job well done after every workout!
Our Douglasville health club offers programs for every age and fitness level – from our low impact and work-at-your-own-pace cardio training equipment such as treadmills, elliptical and stair steppers – to the fast-paced and high intensity workout of circuit training. Group training is also available, with certified instructors leading you through classes to tone muscles, rev metabolism, develop strength and improve flexibility.
Our fitness center also offers Lady Gold’s, a private women’s only gym area away from the co-ed atmosphere.
At Gold’s Gym in Douglasville, our goal is to help you succeed. Our expert team of fitness professionals will help you establish your goals – and show you how to meet and even exceed each one!
