How To Notice A Gym Pro
It's very easy to think that muscly or toned people are the gym experts. Looks can make you think that they know what they are doing. But when in the gym it is a lot more complicated than that. You might think that toned or muscly person lifting heavy weights must be a professional or something. The truth is actually a bit different.
Firstly we need to establish what a gym pro is. Someone who knows what they are doing doesn't have to look the part or even sound the part. They could be anyone and could have any physique. These gym pros or experts are seldom seen grunting loudly or resting a lot. A gym pro knows that fitness isn't about how much you lift or how good you look it's the passion and the knowledge to know what to do and how to do it with minimal fuss and a good balance between efficiency and fun (See TDL FITNESS Fun-Efficiency hypothesis). Someone who knows what they are doing focuses less on the superficial and more on getting the job done and done well.
Now we know what they are let's articulate how to find one. These gym pros exercise almost daily. They are living a fitness lifestyle and such a lifestyle demands no rest days. If you find the gym fun and a way of seizing the day then going to exercise is a matter of when not if. You might think that this could be counterproductive and could lead to over-training and possible injury. For gym pros this is a necessary risk.
A gym pro is one who looks just as focused during rest times as they do during workouts themselves. A rest time is a race against the clock to recover in time to do the next set as best as is physically and mentally possible. Rest times are therefore key to a workout in so many ways. A very important point about rest times is that going over the allotted time to rest is damaging to the efficiency of a workout so distraction is seldom seen in a gym pro's rest time.
The most important way to notice a gym pro isn't how much he or she lifts or how good he or she looks but by how tired they can get themselves in a short space of time. You might be thinking that this is the quality of a fresh starter. But we are here to tell you that that is not the case. A gym pro is one who gets tired or starts sweating or gasps for air as soon as possible. This is because this gym pro has discovered what is needed to get the body to be tired and to require physical adjustments like losing weight, gaining muscle or a mixture of both. This means a gym pro can be of any size and of any description. A gym pro is not limited to a length of time in exercise. A really good gym goer is anyone who can discover for themselves how to make themselves tired and to push the body to the maximum potential in that environment. It is there that physical and indeed mental improvement takes place. That is the true metal of a gym pro.
To repeat, a gym pro is anyone of any physical state who knows how to get themselves tired. Plain and simple and important of all. This means that you, dear reader, could be a gym pro no matter who you are or at what stage of your fitness lifestyle you are in. You can be a gym pro and you can be identified as one if you find out how to make yourself tired during exercise in as short a time as possible. You don't need killer abs or guns of steel; you just need to know how to get to the stage where your body is working towards that end.
