@Regranned from @petersoonfit - I’m reposting this because, NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONERS
CARDIO FOR BEGINNERS
You’ve heard the old adage that you should learn to walk before you run right?
This applies to cardio, or exercise in general.
I know that not everyone approaches cardio as I’ve outlined in the left column but from my experience with beginners, I think it’s a pretty good representation.
The problem is that this can set you up for failure, when you go too hard and too long too soon.
Going from sitting on the couch, day in and day out to suddenly destroying your body through exercise is not advisable nor necessary for a beginner to improve.•
As a beginner, literally, doing anything above the baseline of couch potato will benefit you.
The other problem with this that can possibly derail you is not being able to recover from your workouts and thus a greater possibility of getting injured. If you’re injured and you can’t workout, how productive is that? .
Also you need to beware of falling into the "all or nothing" mindset or chasing perfection. .
I’ve witnessed it so many times when people set their standards too high at the start and because they fall short, they get discouraged and lose motivation. They’ll even find reasons to skip their exercise because they needed 60 minutes to workout but only have 30 minutes, for example.
Take it easy and gradually ease into if you’re a beginner. You should be looking to make exercise a part of your lifestyle. It’s a lifelong journey, NOT a sprint bro a marathon.
Which side represents you the dark side or the “right side”?

Thank you @maggielin_wellness for teaching last class of the year 2017 at #anhaowellness today. We feel grateful to all students who enjoyed our boutique studio surrounding by trees and blue sky until the last day. Happy New Year 2018!
Trainer: Raphael Wenk
Not happy with what you see in the mirror? Struggling to keep in shape whilst spending hours at your desk? Have no clue what and when to eat?
Another great transformation by one of our female clients at @topfit! 3 months of hard and smart training, combined with the right nutrition plan.
Focus was to increase muscle mass and improve overall posture. Exercises included seated and standing back rows, close and wide grip lat pulldowns, standing T-Bar rows (to name a few). Specific emphasis was placed on the proper alignment of the scapulae whilst exercises were conducted under tension (slow tempo).
Remember - practice does not make perfect. Perfect practice makes perfect!
Merry Christmas future mamas! Enjoy a fabulous new year 2018 with your newborn! It will be for you a unique year full of love and joys. Thank you for joining pre natal classes. You will get back in shape quickly!
I never imagined in my life i could one day have got my own scaffolding bamboos at my Pilates studio. This day is today. Anhao under renovation. Longue vie a Anhao!
