One key important element that I see with people training in the gym is that they don’t warm up properly. Most people either will do a cardiovascular machine until they break a sweat. And then they may progress to doing some resistance training or bodyweight training. Of course they start out with a lighter weight and they progress to increase the resistance.
There’s more to it than that. As a personal fitness trainer and a weight-loss specialist that specializes in clients reaching their fitness goals safely, effectively and enjoying the process. There is much more to a proper warm-up than a aerobic activity.
In my private fitness studio in Cliffside Park, New Jersey., One of the key mottos of my profession is you train the movement not the muscle. This means the personal fitness trainer has to pay close attention to the proper technique of the movement. Along with that there must be a warm-up that gradually increases the resistance, pace and technique of the movement. This is something that most personal fitness trainers are not really aware of doing on a day-to-day basis. Most trainers let theirs clients off by not paying attention to proper form on the rep-to-rep basis. Also many personal trainers mismanage to give their clients the proper resistance at a given set.
As a professional fitness trainer, it is very important for me to make sure that my clients are thoroughly warmed up and always are given the proper resistance so that may be able to make the progress and get results that they hire me to do so.
