Philadelphia Gym, Exercise, And Weightloss Guide

Personal trainers know that the secret to weight loss is a combination of diet and exercise. Following a balanced diet is easy to do, but working out is a little harder. The top Philadelphia gyms provide one-on-one training with a qualified personal trainer and some fun classes that make losing weight a little easier.

The trend of working with a personal trainer is sweeping the gyms of Philadelphia. Those who work with personal trainers often experience more weight loss than those who exercise on their own because trainers can whip people into shape quickly. A trainer can help develop an eating plan, create a workout routine and ensure that the client sticks to the routine. In addition to personal trainers, City Fitness has 20,000 square feet of space and cardio equipment with built-in televisions that ensure a workout is never dull. Aquatic and Fitness Centers have four locations in the Philadelphia area, and each location has personal trainers on-site. The staff at the gym can help both those recovering from an injury and those who want to get in shape fast.

Yoga is another trendy workout routine hitting Philadelphia. Yoga proponents believe that the secret to getting shape is a connection between the mind, body and spirit. This is not an ordinary workout routine, because it involves stretching, yoga and meditation. At Studio 34, the high ceilings and welcoming environment make it easy for students to unwind and stretch their muscles. Lithe Method in Rittenhouse Square offers yoga and Pilates classes, including beginners' classes for those who have never tried either workout before. The soft colors and soothing music help create a relaxing atmosphere that makes it easy to follow the instructors' steps. Pilates is similar to yoga; both disciplines involve intricate stretches and movements that improve posture and balance, making it easier to lose weight.

Philadelphia gyms also offer courses in nontraditional exercise methods, including strip aerobics classes and pole dancing. Many studios and gyms offer a free session with a personal trainer or a free visit to the gym, which helps the customer decide if that gym is the right fit.
