Empower Your Workout - Don’t be afraid!

Empower your fitness journey - break free from gym stereotypes

By Liam Fox, PT Trainer at Lindfield

Unlike traditional gyms, where the weight section might seem daunting with its aura of testosterone and intimidating gazes, Vision Lindfield offers a refreshing departure from stereotypes. Here, the Studio cultivates a warm and inclusive environment, encouraging everyone, regardless of background or experience, to engage in independent weight training.

So, why not delve into independent weight training? Here are some tailored tips:

1.Embrace Confidence: Don't let intimidation hold you back

2. Start with Machines: If you're unsure about your form, grip, or strength, machines offer stability and guidance. Opt for exercises like leg press, chest press, lat pull-down, and seated row

3. Begin Light: Kick off with lighter weights and higher reps to focus on technique and endurance. Aim for 12-15 reps and 2-3 sets initially, adjusting as you progress

4. Progress with Free Weights: Once comfortable with machines, challenge yourself with dumbbells or barbells. Free weight exercises enhance stability, core strength, and balance

5. Divide and Conquer: Organise your sessions into upper and lower body workouts, alternating between them or combining both for a comprehensive routine

6. Mix It Up: Blend upper and lower body exercises within the same session for variety and efficiency. For instance, alternate between lat pull-downs, leg presses, bench presses, and lunges

7. Allow Recovery Time: Ensure a 24-48 hour gap between training the same muscle groups to optimise recovery and prevent overexertion

8. Prioritise Protein: Post-weight training sessions, replenish your body with protein-rich foods to aid muscle repair and growth, fostering strength and resilience

By incorporating these strategies into your training regimen at Vision Lindfield, you'll not only witness physical transformation but also cultivate a newfound sense of empowerment and accomplishment. This holistic approach to fitness embodies the essence of our vision, empowering you to thrive in all aspects of your life.
