It’s never too late to take your first step into fitness. Along with nutrition, it’s the first step in leading a healthier, longer life. Beginner athletes stepping into the gym for the first time ever or after a hiatus have a lot to learn, which is why we’re making this guide. Although it’s a long journey for beginner athletes to learn the do’s and don’ts of fitness, it’s a journey worth taking.
This guide is by no means going to touch everything you need to know – no fitness expert knows everything, no matter how reluctant they are to admit it. But, this will give you a basic understanding of what to do on your first day at the gym.
Define your fitness goals
Before you even start scheduling rest, cardio, and strength days – define what you want to accomplish. Are you trying to lose weight? Build muscle? Gain endurance? Whatever it is, your workouts and nutrition plan will revolve around that big picture.
But that’s just the first step. Losing weight is a healthy goal worth pursuing, but it’s not a S.M.A.R.T. goal. That means it’s not specific enough. The key to being a successful as a beginner athlete to evolve into a seasoned one is – being purposeful in your actions. Doing random workouts at sporadic times might help you get in shape, but not reach your end goal.
Set mini-goals to help keep you on-track. Your mini-goals will dial you in on your end goal, and motivate you throughout your journey. See how these fitness goals are closer in reach than simply “losing weight”:
- Go to the gym four times a week
- Take the stairs
- Run three miles a week
- Use 10-pound weights with an exercise
- Walk 10,000 steps a day
Invest in a personal trainer
Now that you have a vision in mind with specific steps you want to take, it’s time to create a workout plan that reflects that. But beginner athletes may be unsure how to go about that. The good news: personal trainers are well educated to guide you expertly to reach your goals.
Even experienced athletes overestimate how much fitness advice can be found in a search engine. Personal trainers are well worth the investment when you’re just getting your bearings on fitness. They give beginner athletes a foundation to develop good fitness habits, like:
- Proper form
- Number of sets and reps
- Workout timing and schedule
- Specific exercises to tone muscles
- Efficient HIIT workouts
- Best stretching and warm-up techniques
- Nutrition and lifestyle advice to support your fitness program and keep you on track
People will debate on never-ending online threads about form and reps, but you don’t know the person on the other side of the computer. With personal trainers, you can trust their voices since they have the education and certification to back up their advice. They’ll explain what exercises to do, when to do them, how to do them and most importantly – why you’re doing them. When beginner athletes understand the why behind their workouts, they can develop their own plan later.
Explore different workout avenues
Even beginner athletes know that there’s an array of fitness niches out there. Oftentimes, these branches of fitness become “trendy,” but that doesn’t mean you have to go with the flow. Dip your feet in different areas of fitness, such as:
- High-intensity interval training (HIIT)
- Functional fitness
- Strength training
- Yoga or pilates
- Group fitness
Try it all. Beginner athletes can sometimes fall into a routine they don’t genuinely enjoy, just because it was “cool.” Explore, find your niche, and roll with it. You won’t ever get bored working out when you’re having a great time doing it. If more than one type of fitness appeals to you, even better! That means you can mix up your workouts without feeling pressured to only lift weights or cardio.
Get the hang of it
Be patient and don’t try any complex, extravagant workouts. This can put beginner athletes at risk for injury, since their muscles haven’t accustomed to the stress they’re under during their first workouts.
If you’re pursuing yoga, perhaps start with slow-paced hatha yoga. That way, you can start nailing your fundamentals and save the complex poses for down the road. If you’re learning to pump iron, do high repetitions (number of movements) and low weight. That way, you can focus on developing proper form, which will potentially save you from injury. In this aspect, beginner athletes are actually at an advantage. Instead of having to shake old habits and replace them with healthy ones, they can build the right ones from the get-go with the help of personal trainers.
Grab other beginner athletes and partner up
Beginning your fitness journey becomes a lot easier with a friend. One study found that 95 percent of people that started a weight loss program with others finished it, while only 76 percent finished it alone. Some research even says that working out with a partner can increase performance, like running faster. This boost of motivation and confidence can propel you through intimidation and shyness around the gym. Workout partners can also:
- Keep you accountable and stay focused
- Ensure you’re keeping proper form
- Spot you when increasing weight
- Help you ease into a routine you may have never tried previously
- Provide positive encouragement and help push yourself harder
Take the leap of faith into fitness. Beginner athletes, no matter what shape or size, can learn what their minds and bodies are capable of with consistency and dedication. With the help of Thrive Fitness’ personal trainers, you can find your niche and learn proper farm with an expert’s supervision. Every professional athlete or bodybuilder started somewhere – so just start. Start your fitness journey today, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Going on vacation is a summer essential. Whether you’re surrounded by palm trees or mountains, there are plenty of ways to stay active and have a healthy vacation wherever you’re venturing to.
Just because you’re away from your home gym or Thrive Fitness Atlanta for the week doesn’t mean you have to lose sight of your goals and diet. Here are a guidelines to stay active on your next healthy vacation:
Walk Wherever You Can
If you’re staying downtown, try walking vs. driving to where you need to go. This allows you to burn extra calories, get some cardio in, soak in more of the sights and culture, while saving some money on an Uber. When you can’t spare the time to visit the local gym or park to workout, walking is a sufficient alternative. Just because it may not be as intense as your typical routine doesn’t mean it’s not beneficial. According to Livestrong, walking at an average pace can burn up to 200 calories an hour. When you’re busy exploring a new city, you can rack up thousands more steps than you would at home. Even just at your hotel – taking the stairs instead of the elevator can make a huge difference. Those extra burned calories count when you want to indulge on the local cuisine (go for it).
Take Active Outings for a Healthy Vacation
Whether you’re traveling to a small town or big city, there’s always something adventurous to do. Experience your destination by active means – hiking, swimming, biking, rafting, jogging, and more. These activities are often offered in the form of group tours – making them even more social and enjoyable. Catch a glimpse of the area’s breathtaking views while still challenging your body. If you’re on your feet for most of your excursions, you don’t need to worry about being away from the gym. Getting a workout in on vacation doesn’t always have to be in the hotel’s gym – it can be a part of the vacation itself.
Adventures are always calling, so whether you’re at traveling or not – here’s how many calories that those adventures can shed for men (M) and women (F) in just one hour:
- Climbing: 899 (M), 774 (F)
- Kitesurfing: 945 (M), 814 (F)
- Canoeing: 572 (M), 493 (F)
- Horseback Riding: 327 (M), 279 (F)
- Mountain Biking: 694 (M), 594 (F)
- Surfing: 258 (M), 222 (F)
- Skateboarding: 408 (M), 352 (F)
- Swimming: 490 (M), 422 (F)
- Yoga: 387 (M), 281 (F)
Research Your Amenities
Hotel fitness centers aren’t ideal, but they’re better than nothing. Even if it’s just a treadmill and a few dumbbells, you can still scrap together a quick workout after your day of sightseeing. Those gyms don’t have personal training or a Body Fat Scanner – but they’ll still burn some calories. If there’s no fitness center, ask the front desk for local gyms they may have guest passes to or try some laps in the pool. Keep an eye out for common fitness events in the area you could fit in your itinerary – like 5k’s to free yoga at the local park.
Try Intermittent Fasting (IF)
Even if you don’t normally follow the popular fasting trend, vacations are a good time to start. Without a kitchen – you’ll usually be forced to resort to oversized restaurant portions. Don’t worry, IF won’t leave you feeling sluggish and unprepared to enjoy your healthy vacation – IF will actually improve your energy levels. This calculated change to your diet will allow you to indulge a few meals, while still not falling completely off the wagon. However, IF is not an excuse to overindulge on excessively fat-dense foods. It’s simply a tactic to keep your calorie count under control while eating out more often than not on vacation.
Water, Water, Water
Your location may be filled with tempting adult beverages – but too many could offset your goals. That’s why water should be your best friend away from home. Alcohol and sugary drinks lead us to underestimate how many calories and carbohydrates we’re really consuming. Drinking as little as two cups of water can help curb your appetite and keep you hydrated. This hack is useful come time for a carb-filled, high-calorie meal when eating out. When you’re walking from adventure-to-adventure, you’re losing more water than you think. Not fueling yourself with enough water, especially if you’re vacationing somewhere sunny, can cause anxiety, fatigue, and headaches.
Instead of relying on a juice detox after your summer vacation – just make it an active and healthy one. With Thrive Fitness Atlanta’s customized workout program and meal plan prepared by experienced personal trainers, you’ll have resources at your disposal for a healthy vacation – and a healthy lifestyle. Contact Thrive Fitness Atlanta at email@example.com today to create a lifestyle that you’ll carry to and from your travel destination.
When you want to take your fitness seriously, trust the education and experience of personal trainers. Beyond guidance and motivation, certified trainers have invaluable knowledge in biology, biomechanics, anatomy and physiology that will help you succeed.
Whether you’re a beginner or elite athlete, ask yourself:
- What do I wish to achieve?
- Who inspires me?
- Why take the long road or veer from the path, when you can take the highway?
Losing weight, building muscle or getting in peak physical condition requires hard work, focus and dedication. Challenges will arise along the way. If you leverage the power of a personal trainer to help set goals, create a plan and navigate through the challenges – you’ll find it’s well worth the investment.
From perfecting your form to deciding the best food to fuel your training, trainers are also life coaches, mentors, and friends. They will provide the framework that beginners need as well as the insider knowledge to take advanced athletes to the next level.
Wherever you are in your fitness journey, here are a few reasons anybody could benefit from a personal trainer.
At Thrive Fitness, all of our personal trainers are certified, specialized and also skilled in creating the perfect program for each individual. Without an expert there to guide you, you may limit your progress or develop bad habits without ever knowing. Having a personal trainer by your side can keep you on track, help avoid injury from improper form or over training, and ensure you get the most out of each workout. In addition, training evolves over time just as your body does. Your trainer will outline a program and expertly guide you through each stage of your progress.
Personal trainers boost your confidence
Motivation is an invaluable part of getting and staying in shape. Personal trainers give you that extra push you need at the end of a challenging circuit. Through developing the right plans, they can show you what you’re really capable of. They can boost your ego just enough to help you tackle your goals by providing their unconditional support.
Personal trainers hold you accountable
We all know that feeling of wanting to skip out on the last few reps or just spend the entire day in bed (which sometimes, you need to). Having a trainer by your side is sometimes the only way to make sure you don’t cheat yourself out of an effective workout. By having a partner and sharing your goals – personal trainers leave you no choice but to stay on track.
Personal trainers tailor your workout
Thrive personal trainers take into account each athlete’s goals and personality to build an exercise plan that’s actually sustainable. With an extensive amount of equipment like cardio machines and every weighted prop you can think of – each workout is different for everyone. Not only that, but personal trainers can help you outside the walls of the gym to propel your nutritional needs. At Thrive Fitness, our on-staff nutritionist will help create a customized nutrition plan that perfectly compliments your workout plan.
Personal trainers are make your workouts exciting
At the end of the day, fitness shouldn’t be a chore. Personal trainers are always finding new ways to bring color to your workouts – because they know that people don’t respond to boring. Although exercise can be exhausting, it should never be dull. Training with the right personal trainer or even training in groups can make that five-mile run or 20-minute HIIT circuit fly by much faster than if you’re alone.

Some athletes live by the motto “no days off” – and they shouldn’t. Rest days are just as big a part of the fitness equation as the actual workout.
Rest days shouldn’t be equated with lack of progress – but rather a catalyst of progress. Without recovery, all types of problems detrimental to your health can arise. Your body is not as invincible as you think. By forcing too many results much too often, you may actually be pulling yourself away from the fitness goals you’ve been trying so hard to stay on top of.
It’s easy to feel guilty on rest days when you’re bombarded with pictures and videos online of everyone hitting the gym – but the reality is, nobody’s going to glorify their rest day. However, rest days should be glorified.
Here are just some of the things they can protect your body and health from:
It turns out, over-exercise should be avoided just as much as exercising too little. This sickness affects your muscles, hormones, and brain. At first, this may seem like an average day when you’re feeling blue – lethargy, headaches, soreness, etc. But if this is all piled up on emotional changes, severe pain, insomnia, and sickness – chances are, you’re overworking yourself. Unlike most things, the solution is rest. Taking a physical (and mental) break from exercise for a few days at a time will help you, not hurt you. If you want to avoid overtraining syndrome, (which basically feels like the flu on steroids), dedicate more days to rest and/or active recovery.
It’s established that moderate exercise routines benefit your heart, bones, and more. But extreme exercise habits have the opposite effect on your immune system. Dr. Mark Jenkins of Rice University noted in a report that “two-thirds of [ultramarathon] participants developed upper respiratory tract infections shortly after.” This is because, after a single-session excessive workout, let alone consecutive ones, your body releases cortisol and adrenaline – which temporarily hinder your immune system. That’s where rest days come in yet again to save the day – your immune system needs time to recover after you exercise. That doesn’t mean lounging all day, every day will flex your immune systems’ muscles – it just means to take the frequency and intensity down a notch once in a while. In fact – regular, moderate, exercise actually boosts your immune system.
Overusing your muscles can plague them with strain and pain. Your muscle tissues actually tear apart when you exercise – but the good news is, they grow back bigger and better. However, tissue can’t repair itself if it’s being exhausted day after day. “When tissues break down faster than it can rebuild, injuries can occur,” according to Summit Medical Group. This is why rest days are a necessity – not just a guideline. Soreness and pain could be indicators that if you may be about to push your body over the edge – leading to an injury.
What to do on rest days
Everybody’s ideal rest day is different. If you want to spend it binge-watching Netflix (while getting up once in a while), go for it. But if you want to stay fairly active on a rest day, you definitely can (as long as it’s not as intense as your normal workout).
Here are some activity ideas for your next active rest day:
- Foam rolling
Rest days are a necessity – and mastering the scheduling of them could be tricky. That’s why Thrive Fitness’ personal trainers are here to customize your workout plan. Contact us here today or email email@example.com.
Transformations can’t and won’t happen overnight. Instead, weight loss transformations are the product of little victories conquered over weeks, months, and years.
Setting goals is the easy part – sticking to them is the hard part. Just ask any resolutioner.
The solution is imagining S.M.A.R.T. goals. To nail your dream #TransformationTuesday post, your weight loss goals should follow these simple, but underestimated criteria:
Specific. Everyone wants to get shredded, but what steps are you taking to get there? Without specific goals in mind, you’re bound to grow frustrated not from a lack of progress – but from a lack of certainty. You can’t build a house without a blueprint. Visualize your start and finish line – and fill in the blanks with specific steps. This can be creating a meal plan you enjoy or attending two training sessions a week.
- Measurable. Quantify – and qualify – your goal. The scale can be a tremendous tool, but it can often be misleading. Those three pounds you literally gained overnight does not equate to three pounds of fat. Taking pictures of yourself as you tread along your journey can also be a useful tool. Pictures offer you a valuable glimpse of how your body is changing. Tape measures are also a useful tool that can quantify your weight loss even when the scale seems deceiving.
Achievable. Some goals are simply unattainable – and that’s okay. If your goal is to hit the gym seven days a week for five hours, your body won’t appreciate you very much. Sustainability and attainability go hand-in-hand. When you go on someone else’s extreme diet or rigorous workout plan, add your own modifications so that you’re not exhausted after three days. By all means, don’t pick the lowest-hanging fruit – but make sure the fruit is still on the tree.
Results-driven. Make sure your goals are yielding results. If they’re not, it’s time to tweak them. If your cardio-only goal isn’t giving you the transformation results you want, try adding some weightlifting into the mix. If your diet isn’t giving you the results you want either, shock your body and switch it up. Fitness is all about trial-and-error when it comes to finding what gives you results.
- Time-bound. Performance under pressure is a game-changer. Try adding a sense of urgency to your goal by applying a reasonable time-frame. Make a timeline – losing half a pound per week is much less of a burden than ten pounds per day. It’s a marathon, not a sprint.
If you’ve set a goal for yourself, congratulations! You’re already halfway there. The next step is to tweak your goal to make it S.M.A.R.T. Your body transformation starts with transforming your goal.

Fitness Goals: How Much Exercise Is Right For You?
The ‘right’ amount of exercise for you can depend greatly on what you’re hoping to accomplish. Someone who is overweight and trying to shed pounds, for example, will probably have to exercise differently to a thin person whose aim is to build muscle, but less than someone in marathon training. Most of the studies have shown that the more exercise you do, the better you are. A minimum of 30 minutes per day is the advised amount of exercise for everyone, no matter your age or gender.
Goal: Staying Healthy
Recommendations issued by the Institute of Medicine, an independent group that advises the government, urged at least an hour of moderate exercise a day for optimal health. Regular exercise prevents loss of muscle and bone mass which can result in a deterioration of physical function and frailty. Working out will increase your physical stamina, decrease your chances of osteoporosis, improve your heart and lung function. Exercise can also reduce the risk of depression and memory loss, prevent and regulate diabetes, boost your mood and metabolism, and so much more.
Goal: Losing Weight
Half an hour a day of moderate activity simply won’t work for this goal. To shed the extra pounds, it’s necessary to tap into the body’s stored fuel source – fat – by eating less, eating healthier, and exercising more. How to properly adjust your diet and exercise will depend on various factors, including your current weight, diet, and metabolism.
Goal: Training/Body Sculpting
Weight training is key to developing that ‘sculpted’ look. How much exercise you need to burn fat and look fitter will depend on your metabolism, weight, diet and just how toned you want to be, but it will be a more intense workout in order to achieve dynamic results.
Goal: Improve Athletic Performance
Looking to dominate the game? Athletes become elite athletes by dedicating serious time at the gym and on the field or court! Overall, athletic training consists of exercises to build muscle, gain speed and improve agility — and vary greatly based on your sport: whether you play football, lacrosse, basketball, hockey or track. Understanding the balance of athletic training, gym time, proper diet and ample rest is essential to be a top athlete in your sport.
At Thrive Fitness, our certified personal training team consists of specialists in professional sports to bodybuilding, or obstacle course training (American Ninja to Spartan Race) and total body transformation. Whatever your goal, we will match you with the best elite trainer to help expertly accomplish your goals.
Top 5 Workout Mistakes You Don’t Know You’re Making
Get a more effective workout and faster results by ensuring you aren’t falling into these bad habits.
Over 85% of people are making at least one of these mistakes which can result in injury or undesired results!
Here are the top 5 workout mistakes you want to make sure to avoid:
Not Warming Up & Cooling Down
You are working out- that’s great! But are you warming up and cooling down? Up to 85% of people who exercise alone are failing to warm up and cool down before and after the workout. While being one of the most important elements to a workout regimen, it also one of the most forgotten. Cold muscles just don’t react the same way to exercise and can lead to injury, so spend a few minutes to warm up before you exercise. After your workout, stretching your muscles helps them repair faster, so you can build strength, minimize muscle soreness and look forward to your next workout.
Proper form is essential for most exercises. Done incorrectly, virtually any exercise can lead to injury. At best, you’ll end up with inferior results. So, make sure you get some guidance on how to perform each exercise correctly. The better your form is, the more effective your workout will be, and the faster you’ll see results. There’s also a common misconception that heavier is better, but that’s not always so. If you’re breaking form, you may be lifting too heavy. Start with a lower weight and increase it as you notice your body can handle more. Proper form and weight also help prevent injuries.
Not Planning Ahead
There’s no doubt that you feel great after one killer workout, but unfortunately, that one workout won’t change your body or improve your health. Schedule your workouts like appointments, and make them a top priority in your calendar. Consistency is key. Honor the commitments you make to yourself. If you decide to workout on Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, schedule it in your calendar and get it done. Read our ways to combat your excuses next time you’re feeling drained, tired, sore or lazy.
Feed Your Growth
After you put your muscles through a particularly grueling workout, they need protein to rebuild. Plan your post-workout meal accordingly, and make sure it includes enough protein to support muscle recovery. One option is to drink a healthy protein shake after your workout, however, a healthy diet is paramount, (supplements are useless against a bad diet). Make sure you have a solid diet of lean meats, veggies, whole grains, and a lot of water before you start thinking about muscle gainers, pre-workouts, amino acids, and creatine. The quality of food you eat impacts your physique far more than a cocktail of powders.
It’s important to take a break between sets, but don’t let your body cool down too much. How long you rest between exercises is completely dependent upon your goals and your individual workout. For instance, heavier workouts may require a few minutes between exercises, whereas workouts designed to strictly increase size should feature shorter rest periods. Depending on your goals, rest periods should be between 30 seconds and 3-minutes.
Workout smarter for optimal results!

11 Benefits of Exercise You Didn’t Know…
We all know that exercising is good for you. We all know that exercise benefits in weight loss, body sculpting, and improved athletic performance. But do you know how exercise supports our overall health and longevity?
Here are 11 benefits of exercise beyond looking good!
1) Decreases Depression.
Exercising increases the endorphins released in the brain which leads to an elevated mood and confidence and helps reduce stress.
2) Live Longer.
Exercise oxygenates the blood which maintains your skin and organs, slowing down the aging process.
3) Improves your heart and lung function.
Like all muscles, the heart becomes stronger as a result of exercise, so it can pump more blood through the body with every beat with less strain.
4) Slows Dementia.
Research has shown regular exercise slows down memory loss, stimulates cognitive ability and improves your memory.
5) Prevents and Regulates Diabetes.
You naturally lose muscle mass with age, which slows down your metabolism. Exercise boosts metabolism and can reduce blood pressure as well as the glucose in your blood.
6) Reduces Pain.
An inactive lifestyle can lead to back, muscle and joint pain. Even if you are in pain, one of the most recommended treatments is to exercise and strengthen the surrounding muscles.
7) Healthy Libido.
Regular exercise leads to a higher self-esteem, improved circulation, and an increased level of endorphins and release of adrenaline – all factors that contribute to improved sex drive and performance.
8) Promotes Quality Sleep.
Research has shown that exercise contributes a better night’s sleep in quality, length, and frequency.
9) Builds Immune System.
The risks of illness and disease are greatly reduced when you exercise regularly, as you build up and strengthen your immune system.
10) Strengthens Bones.
Exercise prevents loss of bone mass and keeps bones strong. This is great for your posture and decreases your chance of osteoporosis.
11) Physical Stamina.
Exercise has been proven to prevent loss of muscle mass and increase flexibility.
Often when we suffer from one or more of the above ailments or issues, we rely on supplements or prescriptions.
Alternatively, exercise is proven medically to support overall wellness naturally on many levels.
