Personal trainers at the best gyms are often quick to admit it. Man or woman cannot get fit with aerobics alone. There has to be some strength training involved, preferably routines that include isometric exercises. One of the most popular and effective is the traditional plank. Why planks and how can gym members make the most of them?

Hello all! My name is Leslie and I am starting a blog! This blog, in fact. Until recently, my fitness experience consisted of hearing that it’s something that’s important. And, if I’m being honest, I’ve never really cared that much about being fit. I have never had a gym membership that cost me more than $10 a month, and I don’t know if I ever would have thought anything more than that would be necessary. I always thought going to the gym was horrible anyway and would cut into my sitting-in-front-of-the-TV-eating-Cheetos time.

Try strengthening your GLUTES!! Don't over do the quads and knees as you are trying to work those legs. Engage more of the Gluteal and hip muscles for less wear and tear on the knees. Grab a trainer and talk "glutes" as you figure out what moves target the biggest muscles you have without causing your knees to hurt.
Exercises To Try:
Leg Press positioned with high heel
Hip Bridges (loaded/unloaded)
Topics: working out

It can be intimidating to work out in a fitness gym. First of all, you probably notice all of the really fit people, especially if you have some weight to lose. Then, there are the complicated machines staring at you. Also, if you decide to try some of the classes, you might be intimidated by all of the people who seem to know exactly what to do. Especially if you have not worked out in a while, you might be a little worried about stepping into a gym.
