The Importance of Varying Your Workouts

When you join the Club and all through your membership we stress the importance of varying your workouts, here we consider why. Individuals should consider varying their exercise routines for two fundamental reasons:

(1) to prevent boredom associated with doing the same things workout after workout and

(2) to avoid or delay reaching a plateau in workout performance and, subsequently, training results. Research has shown that adding variety to an exercise program can improve adherence. Exercise scientists at the University of Florida observed that individuals who modified their workouts every two weeks over an eight-week period appeared to enjoy their workouts more and were more inclined to stick with their exercise programs when compared to individuals who followed the same workout regimens week after week. Varying your exercise routine can also help you stay physically challenged. Many of the body’s physiological systems (e.g., the muscular system) adapt to an exercise program within approximately six to eight weeks. If you do not modify your exercise routine, you reach a plateau because your body has adapted to the repetitive training stimulus.

Did I hear Fitness45 anyone? the membership package at Yeovil Personal Fitness Club where you get trained by a Personal Trainer in a small fun group twice a week, thus ensuring variety? It is worth noting, however, that even on our standard membership you get an appointment with a trainer every 6 visits!…Remember all of this is INCLUDED in the price of your membership, not an extra as is the case at ALL other gyms in Yeovil.
