Joining a fitness facility and starting an exercise program can be an overwhelming and intimidating process for most people. Here are a few tips on how to get started and stay committed.

  1. Set a goal- no matter what your reason is for joining you need to have one. set a goal for what it is youre trying to do but make it realistic. if you don’t know WHY youre joining the gym then you probably wont have much motivation for continuing to come, especially when if it gets difficult.

  2. Make a commitment- no matter what your reasons for joining a gym are, you have to make a solid commitment to showing up on a regular basis. Set aside a time each day that you will commit yourself to coming and stick to it. don’t let anything get in your way of showing up. that hour a day that you commit to yourself and your workout program is yours and your health is worth it!

  3. Research- there are plenty of magazines and websites that can help you figure out what to do when you get to the gym. read and research what type of workouts and programs you can do to help you reach your goal then go to the gym and apply them. but be patient. results don’t come overnight.

  4. Hire a professional- hiring a trainer is one of the best choices you can make to help you on your way. having a trainer gives you the accountability of having to show up at a certain time and get your workout done. it also gives you the chance to learn from someone else what to do to accomplish your goals without having to go through the trial and error of figuring it out on your own.

Don’t let the idea of joining a gym intimidate you. come in, sign up, and start using those tips to get you started on your fitness journey.

Here is a little bit about me and my training as of now. Currently I am in offseason meet prep with my next meet coming on May 23 at the Louisiana Athletic Club. I am currently training to set new PRs (personal records) on all my lifts that I recorded at the Louisiana State Powerlifting Competition. That meet was held in January where I placed 3rd with a 700lb meet total. My off season meet prep mainly consists of overloading on all three lifts (squat, bench, and deadlift), along with working on volume sets based off of anywhere from 75-85% based off of my 1 rep maxes. I currently throw in 2 days of accessory work to hit smaller muscle groups such as shoulders, biceps, triceps, and calves. Im currently eating around 2250-2500 calories a...

Hello Followers!This week and next week is my last heavy taper until my mock meet that is the second week of April. I’ll be testing my main 3 lifts (squat, bench, and deadlift) for a new 1 rep max. On Monday I had REVERSE BANDED SQUATS, using the green mini bands and worked up to 295 for my last set of 3 before I moved into my volume work. I’ve been having some shoulder issues, so I have been going heavier with dumbbells instead of using the bar for bench. Tuesday I ended up hitting 60s on my last set of 6 reps. They actually felt really good and stable. Wednesday I had a shoulder/arm day to help build my physique for next years figure competition that I am planning to partake in. Tomorrow I have my first heavy day of bench ...

Hey Followers!

This week was basically the last heavy lifts that taper off for next weeks max testing. Monday I managed to hit 315lbs for my REVERSE BANDED SQUATS for my overload.Then went straight into some volume sets of squats along with some accessory lifts. Tuesday I had some reverse banded bench then rolled into dumbbell bench press for 4×6. On my last two sets here I pressed 60s fairly easy, which makes me happy. Then I had some accessory lifts for the day. Wednesday I had my typical bodybuilder style lifting day for shoulders and arms. I really emphasize on using super sets on most exercises this day. Then today I was warming up for my sumo block pulls for 5×6, and supervised myself with a HEAVY SINGLE OF 325 that mo...

Hi followers!

Last week was my max testing week for my squat, bench, and dead lift! I came out with some BIG numbers on my lifts, which I was very pleased with. Monday I had my max testing for squats and I managed to hit a 300 LB SQUAT and had more in the tank. if you watch the video I practically exploded out the hole and almost jumped at the top end of my squat. I tried 315LBS after, but my legs were just too gassed. I was very pleased with this new PR, less than 6 months ago I could only squat 250 lbs. Tuesday I maxed on my bench press and hit a 160LBS. I have been struggling with some shoulder pain the past couple months and just recently it has been pain free so I knew bench was not going to improve that much. But regardless still ...
