You go to the gym to exercise so that you can become healthier. But what you may not know is that while working out in the gym you may also become infected or injured. The reality is that there are many hidden dangers that you should worry about when working out in the gym.
By Wendy Grace, Trainer and Co-Owner, Mission Fitness CenterThere have been several seasons of the ‘Extreme Weight Loss’ TV shows, featuring celebrity trainer Chris Powell, and, sometimes, his wife, Heidi. One of my clients is a fan of the show, and she asked me what I thought. After talking to her, watching an episode, and doing some online research, I’d say there are things to learn from this well-intentioned program, but I also have some concerns.
Footballers like those of Premiership are known for their supreme fitness and perfectly sculpted legs that are loved by women and coveted by men. Footballers need to be in top shape since they run for long periods of time and must keep up with the opposing team. With a few gym exercises and the proper diet plan you can have the muscular legs and endurance of a footballer while improving your overall health.
If you wonder if investing in a personal trainer is worth the price, I would have to say yes. Of course I am a personal trainer BUT when I go to the gym and watch some people lift weights or doing exercises all wrong, I just want to go up to them and correct them.When you are just starting out in the gym, I would recommend you hire a personal trainer even if it is one session. If you are doing the exercise wrong, you could not only hurt yourself but you are not getting the benefits from the exercise.Think before you lift and you will thank me :)
There are many people, who think and according to their perception, fitness simply means building bodies. Now, some might have received great results by following this ideology.

There are many people who live in the perception that having a good figure and stout body is following correct fitness regime.
I have a friend; let's call him Derek.
Derek was an avid athlete and spent his fair time in the gym in University. The guy wasn't ripped but had some muscle. Derek is brilliant. So much so that he landed a 6-figure job directly out of University in New York. Fast-forward 5 years and he's making $500,000+ a year.
