  • Personal Training @ Everybody's - Client point of veiw

    At Everybody's we have a great team of instructors and personal trainers. Below is Heather Walkers veiws on what we offer.

    How important is personal training?

    Very!

    When I first joined the gym I knew that I had a huge task ahead of me as I had gained a lot of weight and was very unfit. I didn’t start my PT straight away as for me personally I knew I had to get into a rhythm and a routine first.

    I did know however that at some point I would need it as this time I really want to go for it and would need some help in doing so. I want to do this right! Losing weight is hard work but it’s also hard to keep that motivation up on your own for a lengthy period of time.
    I decided to have pt with James and he has really motivated and guided me. I have pt once a week and he always encourages me to do my best.

    I feel that if I had just stuck to doing it on my own I wouldn’t of got as far as I have…..so far! So huge thanks to James.

    Actually all the guys at the gym are massively helpful and supportive in my progress. Adam had helped in teaching me different things including how to deadlift etc….things I wouldn’t have done on my own that’s for sure! And Guy is helping me with my running offering me advice in regards to pace and technique. I feel very supported which is a lovely thing about everybody’s gym.

    I still have a long way to go but I don’t feel as though I’m doing this on my own as all the support helps a great deal.

  • 5 OF THE BEST RUNNING TIPS

    At Everybody's we like to think we can help with any type of training. Here are some of our best tips for running.

    1. Strengthen Your Whole Body

    Good runners condition their whole bodies. The arms drive the legs. Keep your upper body and core toned with a lot of push-ups, pull-ups, sit-ups, and back raises (don’t forget that the back is part of the core).

    2. Stretch and Refuel Post-Run

    There’s a natural temptation when you finish a run to collapse on the ground and bask in your own private glory. This is a bad idea.” always stretch off the muscles and have a protein shake or bar.

    3. You Need to Sprint More

    Five percent of an athlete’s total weekly mileage should be taken up by sprints. Someone running 30 miles a week should run hill sprints for 1.5 of those miles.

    4. Take Recovery Days Seriously

    The day after a tough workout, the most you want to do is jog lightly or do some form of cross-training, like cycling. You need a recovery day after a hard day. No exceptions.

    5. Use Technology

    Apps from MapMyRun and MYZONE can help you plot your training routine. At Everybody's Gym we have the Myzone system on our TV for live training feedback.

    We hope this information helps! For more information on training systems, myzone or anything else...Facebook us or visit our website www.everybodysgym.co.uk

  • 4 reasons to listen to music when you workout

    Listening to music when you hit the gym to improve your workout isn’t exactly a new concept. But understanding how your favorite tunes enhance your exercise is a little less obvious.

    Research consistently finds that listening to music distracts athletes from their “bodily awareness”. And a recent study found that not just listening, but controlling and creating music in time to one’s pace had an even more profound effect on perceived effort during a workout.

    Here are four very good reasons to rock out during your next gym session.

    1.Music is the good kind of distraction.
    While the study did suggest there’s more to it than distraction, working out with music did make participants less aware of their exertion.

    2. It ups your effort.
    A 2010 study found that cyclists actually worked harder when listening to faster music as compared to music at a slower tempo.

    3. Music puts you “in the zone”.
    Everyone has that go-to song that gets you “in the zone,” and there’s science to why it works. We associate certain songs with memories, often relating to the context in which we originally heard them, such as the first time you watched Rocky. Channeling that memory — or even just the emotion of the singer — boosts the motivational power of the song, and has been shown to improve physical performance.

    4. A good beat can help you keep pace.
    The rhythm of your workout music stimulates the motor area of the brain as to when to move, thereby aiding self-paced exercises such as running or weight-lifting. Clueing into these time signals helps us use our energy more efficiently, since keeping a steady pace is easier on our bodies than fluctuating throughout a sweat session.

    At Everybody's we always working on making a fun and engaging environment.
