Why you should become a member of a fitness club?

Eager to lose some weight, build your muscle mass, relax or simply feel healthier? Then you should consider subscribing to a fitness club. Indeed, when you decide to have a more active lifestyle, being a member of a gym club will help you to maintain these good habits in the long run. Thanks to this, you benefit from numerous advantages:

  • By using modern and efficient machines, you will be able to focus on the muscles you wish to target and gain muscles. New exercises make you work on your muscles in a new way, and this may represent a new challenge for your body. Often, a club try to invest in innovative equipment so that you can try all the new sports trends;
  • Professional trainers to follow your progress and check the way you perform some exercises that may be tricky. That way, you don't risk injuries which are a common problem of performing sport at home;
  • You will get the opportunity to engage in live sessions that include both warm-up and stretching. Thanks to this, you will not only stay motivated but will benefit from the group experience and get to meet new people;
  • A program especially drawn for you according to your special needs: grow muscles, get slim and so on;
  • Advice about nutrition and sport exercises: as you know, you will not take the same amount of proteins a day if you want big muscles as if you want a slimmer shape. Thus, you will not use the same machines, the same weights or do as much cardio as well;
  • Wellness advisors are also available to answer questions about your global health (metabolic age rating, and so on) and may give you tips to massage yourself to release the muscle pain due to the exercise.

All these services will help you maintain your motivation high in order to achieve your goals whatever they are. Remember that every body is different and transformation may take a longer time for some people. The most important thing is to listen to your body and feel when you can push harder or, on the opposite, when you should go easier.

Extra Information

A regular physical activity helps you to get a better physical well-being as well as a better state of mind. It can boost your mood, improve your memory, help you to stay focused and even get a better sleep. However, when the weather is grey and rainy, exercising outdoors can seem a little daunting. That is when a sports club could prove a handy alternative!

You will find here a selection of some of the best sports clubs in Brussels. All of them offer customised fitness programs and all the high-end equipment you need to give the best out of you as well as a huge number of facilities (of course, shower and dressing rooms, but also pool, sauna, hot tubs...). Some of these fitness centres even have their own wellness department with different kind of treatments: peeling, massage, beauty cares, and so on.

The main interest of a subscription in one of those sports clubs is to participate in group classes (whether it is body-sculpting or dancing lessons) and get the assistance of a coach when you are using sports machines in the fitness area. You may even ask them if they can design a special program if you want to achieve some goals: intensity of the workouts, time to train, duration of each session, and so on.

The difference between cardio and bodybuilding

Whether you want to lose weight, have better breath or build muscles, cardio exercises are great to introduce in your weekly routine. The major advantage of this kind of workout is that it can consist in a whole series of exercises for all levels: from bike to run, from walk to swim or even dance or Cross-Fit. You just have to pay attention that you are not pushing too far too fast.

Know that even if you are trying to build big and strong muscles, cardio should be in your programs. It can consist in several series of quick reps on a bodybuilding machine or a quick run in the morning. It will help you to get rid of fat faster.

What kind of exercise should you add to your routine?

You wouldn't eat the same thing everyday, would you? Then, why would you do the same exact series of exercise every time you go to the gym? As often, variety is the key to a good lifestyle. There are four main group of activities that you should include into your workout routine.

  • Strength helps you to carry and wear heavy things, for example: you can improve your strength with lifting weights exercises, using material such as resistance bands or by swimming, but also with body weight workout such as Pilates;
  • Endurance is good for your heart, your lungs and your circulation: the pysical activities targetting endurance are running, biking, tennis, football, but also dancing and swimming
  • Balance prevent risks of falling: many activities contributes to a better balance, for example Pilates, yoga, workouts with gymballs... The important is to have a strong core and lower body.
  • Finally, flexibility prevent simple muscle and joints injuries: there is a whole variety of stretches to improve the mobility of your back and shoulders, hips, thighs and even ankles.
