Do Your Workouts Make You Better?

Unfortunately, we are living in a time where group workouts that exhaust or almost kill people are glorified. It’s gotten to the point where some exercisers don’t think they got a good workout unless they are practically crawling out to their cars when finished. 


But guess what? Puking or being on the verge of it does not constitute a good workout. It’s easy to run people into the ground; it takes absolutely no skill to exhaust someone.


A good trainer will encourage you to challenge yourself but also to listen to your body. You should not push through joint pain or extreme fatigue.

Rather than just running you ragged, your training sessions should increase your energy and make you stronger. They should be correctly designed to work muscle groups properly and thoroughly. Good form should always be stressed. If not, you simply become an injury waiting to happen.
