Season 2 of the Body Shepherd Podcast: Answers to Common Training Questions
EPISODE 5: “What Are The ‘Unwritten Rules’ Of The Gym?”
I believe one of the one of the most valuable things I can offer someone on their weight loss journey is my firsthand perspective and experience of having gone through morbid obesity (and an eating disorder) and into a fit, healthy life.
It was accomplished without a background in athletics or sport, so I had none of the background that nearly all trainers have when approaching getting fit.
In other words, I was just an average guy who didn’t play sports who needed to get in shape or suffer the physical and emotional consequences.
Here’s the thing: Once I got to the gym and decided to make fitness a cornerstone of my life, I quickly realized that there are certain ‘unwritten rules’ to every gym, and several that are universal.
These can be obstacles that turn people away if they don’t know what they are, so in this episode, I will share what these ‘unwritten rules’ are, and how to make the most of your gym experience.
