Fitness Equipment Recommendations

FITNESS EQUIPMENT.

Everyone thinks they need a gym to train.  When, in fact, FITNESS IS EVERYWHERE! all you need is to place your body under enough resistance, and therefore your muscles under enough stimulus, in order to grow lean muscle mass, boost your metabolism, get fitter and healthier, and be rocking your best body. See below a recommended list fitness equipment that I personally use.

“Muscle hypertrophy occurs when the fibres of the muscles sustain damage or injury. The body repairs damaged fibres by fusing them, which increases the mass and size of the muscles.”

So why does it matter if your own ‘gym’ is a corner of your kitchen, your back garden, a local park, or the deck of a boat? (that’s my gym).

IT DOESN’T! with the right equipment.

Training where you want means no gym fees, no contracts, no commuting, no stress!  Of course gyms are a great place to socialise and have fun BUT if you have other times demands and really just prefer to go it alone, then home training with the correct workout equipment is just as effective – it simply requires a little dedication, probably an awesome soundtrack, and some key pieces of fitness equipment to be able to create the stimulus needed to create lean muscle mass.

FUN FACTS:

Training with music can increase exercise performance by up to 15%.

Clever training techniques like simply slowing down movement whilst using your fitness equipment during an exercise (i.e bicep curls) engages more muscle fibres (because you are relying less on gravity) and this means you can create more muscle fibre damage WITHOUT the need for extra weight on the bar!
