It is natural to be a bit anxious before you go to the gym or personal training for the first time. Here’s a few tips on what to bring to your first session.
1. Turn up!
The hardest part can be just turning up! Once you have made the decision to start, re-start, or go to the gym, just do it! Don’t over think it, don’t worry about all the “what if’s” : what if I don’t know what to do, what if I can’t do something, what if I’m not fit enough etc. Turning up is half the battle. Trust that your coach will work with you and it will all be good.
2. Wear comfortable clothing
Wear training gear, ideally T-shirt and shorts and training shoes. Wear what you are comfortable in. You don’t need to go buy new fancy training gear. Key is your training gear is comfortable fit on you, that’s what counts.
3. Bring water!
This might be obvious, but some people forgot, you will be exercising, and maybe sweating, so it is very important to stay hydrated throughout. So bring bottled water with you.
4.Bring positive open enthusiastic mindset
This is so important. Rather than worrying about it, approach the training as a positive learning experience. This is your time, this is your opportunity to improve your fitness, strength, health. Remember why you first thought of starting training and keep that front of mind. Keep your goal(s) in mind and look to the future. We have seen so many times people arrive to training initially anxious or “tired”, but once they get started and going, they get more energy and by the time they are finished, they are buzzing and feeling so much better. So trust that it will be a positive experience and come expecting that.
