Workouts for Women Who Want to Shed a Few Pounds

Like anyone who wants to drop a few pounds, proper nutrition and exercise are usually the key to success. The first thing to do is decide which days of the week you’ll want to work out. Most people like to work out after work or in the morning. But bear in mind that muscles need time in between workouts to rest and recharge. The second thing you’ll want to do is choose the right exercises that will spur you on to complete your weight loss goal. It might be a great idea to start your workouts with strength training and then finish with cardio machines. Some exercises you might choose and that our trainers at Youfit can help you with might include:

  • Cardio – Get your heart pumping with some cardio! Exercise machines at Youfit like the treadmill, stationary bike, stair climber and elliptical machines are perfect for your cardio routine. For optimal results, exercise on each machine three times a week for 30 to 40 minutes to burn fat and tone your core.

•            Weights – Build lean muscle mass by lifting weights. Weightlifting can also help you to burn more calories. At Youfit fitness center in Gainesville, we think it’s best to do a combination of upper body exercise like bicep curls and shoulder presses and lower body exercises like lunges and squats. In order not to strain the muscles and give them a chance to rest, it’s best to do legs one day and then focus on another part of the body the next day. Whatever your preference, make sure to ask one of the personal trainers at Youfit to make sure you’re doing each exercise correctly and to optimize the best results for you.

•            Circuit training – Moving from one exercise machine to another, circuit training combines strength training and cardio vascular exercise. At Youfit, our circuit training program takes just 30 minutes and each exercise is timed so you know exactly when to move on to the next machine. Our renowned circuit training program is what makes Youfit one of the best gyms in the country. In just 30-minutes you have achieved a full workout bringing you one step closer to your fitness goals.
