The 30+ Guide to Going Back to the Gym

For millions of Americans, New Year’s Day represents a fresh start and an opportunity to make the changes necessary to chase dreams and goals. Among the most popular of New Year’s resolutions has to do with becoming healthier, whether it is to lose belly fat, become more physically active, or be more consistent with healthy eating. As one grows older, living an active lifestyle typically becomes more and more challenging because of important life events, such as getting married or divorced, having children, taking care of aging parents, pursuing a job promotion, getting fired, etc.

After getting in your 30s and 40s, going back to the gym can feel a lot more intimidating than it did when you were younger. However, all of those years that you spent away from the gym have left you with depleted strength and cardiovascular endurance, belly fat, and fatigue, which are common precursors of much more serious conditions that may negatively affect you in the future.

In addition to just getting back to the gym, you may notice that some of the exercises may not feel as natural as they did in your younger years. Much of this has much to do with having to train your brain to be able to get the body to learn the technique. With practice, you will eventually get the hang of it.

Follow the tips on this video to get you back to feeling comfortable about returning to the gym now that you are a “grown up” and successfully reach your fitness goals. If you are interested in a free introductory consultation about nutrition counseling or online personal training, visit .
