Common gym clothing Mistakes


No Comments

Wearing the right clothing, with the right gear as well as practicing good hygiene, makes a difference between a productive workout session and discomfort or misery.

Wear Moisture-Wicking Clothing

When you’re working up a sweat at the gym, stay cool and comfortable in moisture-wicking clothes. That is fabrics made of polyester and Lycra blends. They cost more than your regular cotton t-shirt, but will last longer, dry faster and keep you comfortable throughout your workout.  Wear a performance t-shirt that is designed to draw sweat away from your body and to the outer surface.

Wear Proper Fitting Clothing

Workout clothing that is too big is functionally worse to wear to the gym. Clothes that are too loose can be bulky and constrict your movement or can get in the way in different positions. Clothing that is too tight can feel restrictive and binding.  Choose materials, such as a nylon-elastane mix, that gives you freedom during exercise and provides a very comfortable fit without being too tight.

No Cologne/Fragrance in the Gym

Fragrances tend to linger and carry in closed environments, such as the gym. Your perfume-marinated sweat can induce headaches around the gym. Ensure your workout clothes are washed daily.

No flip-flops at the Gym

The footwear you choose for a workout should provide proper support and protection to your feet. Wearing appropriate footwear actually reduces your risk of injury and improves your physical performance. Choose shoes that provide the support you need for the workout of your choice. Make sure they fit you properly.

No Jewelry at the Gym

Get in the habit of taking off your jewelry and storing them in the locker or leaving them at home before a gym session.  Not only is jewelry unnecessary at the gym, it is unsafe. Whether you’re wearing chains, watches, bracelets or ring, you risk injuring yourself and damaging jewelry by banging metal against metal or snagging it on a machine.

Worried about the precautions at the gyms? Hire a personal trainer to make the journey easier.

Marathon Guide for Beginners


No Comments

World Health Day is just around the corner – perfect time to pick up health habits. If you are thinking of signing up to a marathon, or already have, but  never run more than a 100-meter dash, don’t despair, we have you covered

Make sure to set realistic goals

In excitement for this new adventure, it might be tempting to get out there and start running straight away. But this will only lead to injury and disappointment. Bodies adapt at different rates, and  you’ll find that it can take up to six weeks for your body to feel comfortable with this new exercise. The best way to get, and keep, on track when marathon training is to set yourself small, achievable goals leading up to the run date.

Increase your step

When you set your goals, aim to increase the distance you run each week by 10%. This will help your body adapt to its new training regime, and the demands being placed on it. Every third or fourth week should be your ‘cutting back’ week, which means you can take it a little easier. Again, this will help reduce the chance of injury and also give you time to reassess your next month of training.

Eat right for your run

What you eat is just as important as how you train. Around three to four hours before you run eat a high-carb, low-fiber meal, such as a peanut butter sandwich, or two eggs. If you’re running for more than 60 minutes, top up your energy levels with a high-carb energy snack such as a packet of raisins. And don’t forget about energy-boosting and recovery foods post-workout. Consider Holistic nutrition.

Stretch it out

A sore muscle is guaranteed from all this training, which can put many people off continuing their training program. Avoid this by using a foam roller, which helps to loosen up muscles and improve your range of motion. Schedule in some relaxation time too, in the form of a yoga, stretching or Pilates class to help support your body during this time.
