Fitness Tip from Our Durham Personal Trainers: Mix it Up!


It’s easy to get in a slump when you’re working out by yourself. Sometimes we trick ourselves into thinking as long as we take regular trips to the gym, we will magically get in shape. Unfortunately, it takes a lot more than that! It’s important to be mindful when working out and to consciously make sure you are pushing yourself and increasing the intensity of your workouts as you get stronger.

Many of us may plateau when it comes to seeing results and it’s often because you’re not working hard and pushing yourself. Make sure you’re making your workouts harder and not just doing the same thing over and over. Our favorite tip when working out individually is to create a challenge for yourself each time you exercise… Whether that be using a little more weight, adding more reps, or an entire set, do something that’s just a little bit better than last time. The more ways you can add variations into your workouts, the more effective they will be.

At The Method Gym in Durham, we create a variety of different workouts and exercises for our clients to not only make their workouts more interesting, but also to make them more effective. Our personal trainers in Durham are here to tailor a workout that is safe yet challenging with proper form and a variety of exercises!
