project reboot

At Everybodys Gym We wanted to give you the opportunity to reboot your fitness with as many options as possible.

PT Joe Higgins might have the answer –

PROJECT REBOOT 12 WEEK TRANSFORMATION PROGRAMME

With the gym reopen there’s no better time to get your fitness journey up and running again.

Maybe you’re looking to get your fitness journey going and not sure where to start. This programme is designed to be tailored to suit any individual, no matter what level of fitness you are at. Project reboot not only focuses on improving physical fitness but mental wellbeing as well, the weekly challenges throughout the programme encourage small actions that have big positive impacts. With diet advice, pt sessions and round the clock support, project reboot really is value for money. During lockdown I have had plenty of time to make sure everything about project reboot is perfect and I’m excited to begin working with all of you.

Welcome back

WELCOME BACK ✅

We are ready to welcome you back from Saturday the 25th of July 🙌

Please take a look at the whole video as we have some important information at the end 🙂

What can you expect?

We’ve re-defined our cleaning and safety standards and can’t wait to welcome you back to the gym.

The gym has been re arranged and clearly marked out for you to use safely, so it is easy for everyone to follow. We have created the space you need to work out whilst maintaining social distance. Numbers are also controlled so the gym never gets too busy.

Extensive and frequent cleaning: the gym will be deep cleaned every night with high grade anti viral disinfectant. The team will also clean frequent touch points every hour, alongside the standard cleaning of equipment. Allowing you to train with confidence.

We’ve installed new self-cleaning stations so you can clean your kit before and after use, for added peace of mind. Cleaning stations are located in all key areas of the gym to make it as easy as possible.

Frequently asked questions:

How long can I stay in the gym?
We know how much you’ve been looking forward to getting back into the gym! We want all members to get a chance for a safe and a great workout so we are encouraging members to limit their visit to an hour at busier times.

Do I have to wear a mask to the gym?
The government have confirmed that it is not compulsory to wear a face mask when you visit the gym, as there are many other measures already in place in the gym for safety and hygiene.
If you want to do so, you can, but please ensure that all used masks are disposed of safely in one of the bins provided.

Can I use the showers?
Yes, it is safe to shower but distancing is once again paramount as toweling down, etc., can spread contaminants. The important factor is maintaining safe distancing. For the time being, we are encouraging members to arrive and leave in gym kit wherever possible.

What support is available for vulnerable members?
We want to ensure that everybody has the opportunity to get back to the gym. We have made a number of changes in the gym to ensure the safety of our members, if you think you’ll need some support in finding your way around the new layout in the gym and getting to know the new one way system just get in touch.

We cant wait to see you on Saturday the 25th!

Have you seen – Fitness professionals turn government NHS posters to promote exercise – creates viral sensation

We all know exercise is an important component of staying healthy and reducing the risk of illness. Some Professionals in the fitness industry have taken to linked in to portray this message in a style we have got used to seeing in the last few months.

The article below was taken from https://www.healthclubmanagement.co.uk/health-club-management-news/Fitness-managers-NHS-posters-go-viral-government-Daniel-Ward-gym-F45-exercise-COVID-19-coronavirus/345904?fbclid=IwAR1g9JSfKNzyKjr6supiv1n8yhJQa2Lqbk4FjgSmyJBfGmh1c00WydaMlXk.

A set of posters created by a fitness Professionals, mimicking the government’s COVID-19 NHS messaging, have gone viral on LinkedIn.

The posters, carrying the message of “Exercise – Protect the NHS” were created by Daniel Ward, a qualified PT who works as a studio manager at an F45 franchise in Milton Keynes.

Ward had been using the lockdown to hone his Photoshop skills and, once it became clear to him that the government’s attitude towards the gym sector had “left something to be desired”, he decided to put his newly-acquired skills to use.

“I first realised that we might have a problem when the government published its very first list of sectors, alongside a schedule of when they might return – and fitness and gyms weren’t even on it,”

“While gyms were added to subsequent tables, I was further frustrated by the ‘pubs before gyms’ debacle around the 4 July reopenings.

“It was disappointing to witness pubs and restaurants being given the green light before fitness – especially as research from the US-based CDC shows that people suffering from obesity, heart conditions and diabetes are at a higher risk from COVID-19, all are conditions which exercise can reduce.

“So I decided to do my bit and to come up with some alternative messaging which would highlight the merits of physical activity.”

Ward began searching the NHS website and official government sites for figures and facts around the benefits of exercise.

After choosing some headline numbers, he created the posters to look like the ones used at the government’s daily briefings.

“I agree with the government that the NHS needs protecting,” Ward says. “And exercise can help do that by keeping people fit and healthy. During my 16-year career in fitness I’ve seen it with my own eyes.

“And it’s not just physical health that the sector can help with either. I know plenty of people who use exercise to improve their mental health – and there are studies that back up that.

“One of the numbers I found was that physical activity and exercise can cut NHS spending on mental health by 30 per cent. When you consider that mental health spending by the NHS in England alone accounted for £12.2bn in 2018-19, it’s not a small amount.”

Ward adds that it is clear that the industry agrees with the sentiment in his posters.

“It only took a few days for my posters to receive 6,000+ views, more than a hundred shares and countless likes,” he says – and adds that he would be happy for any gym or operator to use his artwork.

“I’d be 100 per cent happy for any gym or club to use the posters.

“I think now, during the pandemic, people are psychologically ready to commit to healthier lifestyles – and that includes physical activity. So it could be a way to highlight some of the advantages of keeping fit.”

The posters are as follows:

EXERCISE > UP TO A 50% LOWER RISK OF TYPE 2 DIABETES > PROTECT THE NHS

EXERCISE > UP TO A 35% LOWER RISK OF CORONARY HEART DISEASE AND STROKE > PROTECT THE NHS

EXERCISE > A 30% LOWER RISK OF EARLY DEATH > PROTECT THE NHS

EXERCISE > UP TO A 50% LOWER RISK OF COLON CANCER > PROTECT THE NHS

EXERCISE > UP TO A 83% LOWER RISK OF OSTEOARTHRITIS > PROTECT THE NHS

EXERCISE > UP TO A 30% LOWER RISK OF DEPRESSION > PROTECT THE NHS

How to ease back into exercise

As we are coming ever closer to getting back into the gym, we have noticed an increase in people wanting to get back into exercise..

Is your motivation BACK!!

Here’s Exactly How To Ease Back Into Working Out…

If you’ve been hibernating through the lockdown (and who could blame you?), the thought of getting back into a regular fitness routine can seem a bit daunting. And while there’s no way around it—when you’re not in the habit of working out, you lose progress — don’t be deterred from sweating it out. Challenges can be a good thing!

1. Don’t overdo it right away.
Doing too much too soon can overwhelm you mentally and a rigorous routine may eventually feel like too much to deal with, which in return make you feel defeated. Understand that you’re probably not going to be as fit as you were, and that’s OK. You can start with just 10 minutes a day, the goal is just to get moving more. People have a tendency to overdo it initially, and they end up [with injuries] because the body is not prepared for the extra activity. Low-intensity workouts are a good way to reintroduce the body to activity, frequency, and duration.” After a week or two, you can bump up the intensity, as long as you’re not losing form.

2. And begin with what works for you.
Do you only feel comfortable committing to one or two days a week initially? Great! Mark it on your calendar and stick with it. Don’t feel like you have to immediately start logging five to six gym workouts per week. You can’t get to three to four days a week without mastering day one, so just start. As you get comfortable, try to work your way up to four days a week. The body responds to consistency over time, so your results will come much faster if you can keep a regular pattern and frequency.

3. Make sure your workouts include three key components.
When you’re getting back into fitness, your exercise plan should include components of cardiovascular endurance, resistance training, and flexibility. Combined, all three components will give you the most longevity with your goals. And always remember to go at your own pace and listen to your body. Here’s what a perfect week of working out looks like.

4. Don’t forget to take those rest days!
Another reason not to jump into a six-days-a-week workout routine: Recovery is part of being active. When you take a day off, your body isn’t. It’s actually working very hard to repair and replenish itself after all the work you put it through. Rest days are key to long-term wellness. This is a lifestyle you’re creating now, so be realistic about your frequency.

5. Start your workout with a good warm-up and end with a good cool-down.
A good warm-up preps your body for the increase in activity and a cool-down allows your heart rate to return to a normal resting rate. Don’t cut corners here: “Muscles that have not been accustomed to strenuous activity for sometime will experience some form of DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness), which basically means you are going to be tight and achy for 24-72 hours after your workout. (You may also experience this is you work out regularly but up your intensity.) “A proper cool-down session can reduce some of this soreness.”

6. And spend a few minutes stretching.
Speaking of tightness, stretching is especially important when you’re getting back into a fitness routine. A good warm-up includes dynamic stretches. And when you are done working out, finish with some more stretches.
