One of the major benefits of living in an apartment complex is having access to an on-site fitness center, rather than having to drive and pay a monthly fee at a gym. Harborside Village has a state of the art fitness center for residents to use when they want to work out! Continue reading for a few tips on how to make the most out of your apartment’s fitness center to get the results you want.
You shouldn’t go right into an intense workout, especially if you’ve been sitting at work all day and your muscles are tight. Start by stretching for a few minutes to release tension, then hop on the treadmill for an easy five-minute walk or light jog to get your blood pumping. Warming up is a crucial step in every workout, as it helps prepare your body for exercise and prevent injuries.
Use Gym Equipment
If your fitness center is full of nice equipment, try to use as many machines as possible! You don’t want to use every machine in one day, of course, but it’s helpful to create a schedule of days that you will work on your arms, days that you focus on legs, and so on. Many people stick to the treadmill and elliptical- which are great workouts- but don’t be afraid to try out the other equipment! If you are unsure how to use a machine, a neighbor or worker will likely be more than happy to show you the correct form.
Be A Good Apartment Community Citizen
The fitness center is for all residents in the apartment complex to use, so be sure to keep it clean and sanitized for others! If each person does their part to clean up after themselves and use the equipment correctly, the fitness center will remain in great condition and last many years. Remember to always sanitize equipment after use, including mats, exercise balls, and machines. Although you may have only used the equipment for a few minutes, wiping it down with sanitizing spray is the best way to prevent the spread of germs and bacteria and to keep everyone healthy. Also, be sure to place equipment back exactly where you found it to avoid items getting misplaced or stolen. By following these simple rules, you will be making the most out of your fitness center and ensuring that the gym is a safe space for all residents!
