What To Wear For a Gym Induction

We know all too well how daunting it can be going to the gym for the first time or starting at an entirely new gym. That's exactly why gym inductions are so useful and important for newcomers. Having a instructor walk you around a gym can actually help your nerves in the long run as you will then know how to use the machine of your choice safely without feeling nervous.

Gym Induction: What to expect

Your gym induction should be informative and leave you feeling confident and at ease. Typically, your induction will be with a fitness instructor who'll take you around the gym, providing you with useful information about the facilities and what the gym has to offer, they should also cover any health and safety issues to ensure you are safe in the gym.

Before they allow you to use any equipment you will have to fill out a questionnaire regarding your health, this is sometimes emailed to you prior to your induction or it can be done on the day. Once this is all complete most instructors will take you through the different machines ensuring you know how they work and how to use the safety.

Gym Induction: How To Conquer Nerves

Nerves are completely normal, especially if it's all new to you. There are a number of things you can do to help conquer these nerves:

  1. Mindset - Start your experience with a positive mindset and remember everyone has been there.
  2. Clothing - Either treat yourself to some new gym wear or wear something you feel confident in for your induction. There's nothing wrong with a baggy t-shirt and leggings!
  3. Food - Make sure you've eaten before your induction, as working out on an empty stomach is a quick way to start feeling lightheaded.
  4. Questions - Think of any questions you may need to ask so you come away from your session feeling confident to start the gym!

Gym Induction: What to Wear

As your instructor will take you around the gym and show you machinery, where everything is and overall make you feel more settled, a lot of people make the mistake of not wearing any activewear for their induction but that is were you are wrong. It's recommended that you come wearing your activewear so your instructor can allow you to use the kit available to help give you some tips and tricks for future use or give you a quick demo of the machinery. Even just a simple gym hoody and a pair of joggers or leggings will do for the first day.

Activewear features to look for

Lightweight - This ensures that you are not weighed down by your clothing when working out.

Flat Lock Seams - This is a technology used in all of our leggings ensuring friction is reduced so there is no irritation along the seam lines.

Absorbent & Quick Drying - A important factor for activewear to ensure you can do a full workout with your sweat being absorbed.
