The benefits of regular exercise are well-documented: weight management, strengthened muscles & bones, reduced risk of heart disease, boost to mental health and that’s just to name a few. But for many, gymtimidation, the fear of going to or working out in a gym/fitness environment, is also very real. A 2022 report by My Protein revealed that 90% of Americans that they surveyed were concerned about how they are perceived by others at the gym, while 30% admitted suffering from performance-based anxiety. These findings are echoed elsewhere across the globe, 39%

This is a great question to address, and we’re happy to say yes, it is (though there is, of course, a caveat to that, which we’ll explain later). In fact, a study reported by the University of Bath found that the risk of injury from sports and exercise in general is very small, with fitness classes among the lowest risk forms of sports/exercising, leading to just 0.10 injuries per 100000 participants/year. And in the context of fitness classes, functional training, which focuses on exercising multiple muscles groups simultaneously, can prove even

Consistency isn’t the most exciting or glamorous of words, but it is a word that packs a lot of punch when it comes to fitness training. Why? Simply put, being consistent and working out regularly is what will deliver sustainable results. It’s the path to achieving goals and then setting new ones. Consistency begins with routine.

However, your experience and objective for working out can dictate the speed at which you should lift weights. If you’re new to working out or haven’t worked out for an extended period, then lifting slowly is advisable. The slower pace enables you to focus on ‘how’ you are lifting, ensuring that you use proper form and technique and engage the right muscles. If you’re at Reset Fitness, our Coaches will be

Quality or quantity? It’s not a new question, and for most (including us) the answer is obvious. Quality! Now, that’s not to say we don’t understand the value or importance of quantity in the world of fitness. We do encourage our members to count the number of reps they’re doing each set and in some workouts to complete AMRAP (as many reps as possible). And our coaches will drive a member to perform an extra rep or two, but only because they KNOW that member and they KNOW that have a

The short answer is yes! But, of course, there’s more to it than that. Goal setting will help to provide clarity, focus, direction and motivation, but these factors all depend on how you determine your goals and monitor your progress. For us, the initial step in goal setting, and, in fact, for any new member, is an assessment. An assessment is a one-to-one session with a coach, during which the member’s lifestyle is analysed and various body metrics are taken. The purpose for us is to get to know the member
