Intro to Your Gym
You may have a gym at your apartment building or your place of work, but do you know how to use it? If not, you’re not alone. Many people want to exercise but don’t, because they don’t know how to use their gym. Others are brave enough to give it a try anyway, and learn a couple of moves by watching others on the sly. There are healthy, proven ways to use exercise machines, and things you can do that can hurt your body in the long-term. It’s worth it to know the difference! Besides, it’s more fun to exercise when you know what you’re doing, and that what you’re doing will bring the results you’re looking for.
