Top 5 Life Lessons the Gym will Teach You

The gym is more than just a place to lift weights and do cardio. It's more than a social gathering or Instagram pic backdrop. The gym is special, maybe even spiritual. The gym is the school of life. Here are my top 5 life lessons learnt in the gym.

Lifting weights has so many health benefits. It builds muscle and strengthens your joints and bones which helps to reduce the risk of certain health conditions like osteoporosis. Building muscle also helps us burn calories efficiently since muscle tissue burns calories even when resting so if you’re looking to lose weight, adding in some weight training will boost your metabolism and increase calorie burn. We lose muscle mass as we get older so adding some strength training to exercise routines helps us to keep strong and active and reduces the risk of injury. If you are new to lifting weights, you could start with some light dumbbells or kettlebells, and as you get stronger, increase the weight and number of reps you do. Wrist weights and ankle weights are also a great way to add weight whilst doing other activities such as walking or running. They are easy to wear and will help tone and build muscle. If you are used to weight training, bars and barbells are a great option since you can add different sizes of weight plate depending on how heavy you want to go. Don’t forget the collars for your bars to ensure you’re keeping the weight plates secured safely onto your bar before you start lifting.
