13 Benefits of GYM based Exercise?
The sophisticated equipment available in gyms today allows exercisers to perform a variety of sport activities under conditions of maximal safety with almost no risks.
For example, riding stationary bicycles precludes the danger of road accidents, and aerobic running apparatus such as treadmills outfitted with shock absorbers and smooth surfaces reduce the chances of injuries (mainly sprains) that could occur while running on uneven road conditions. Working out on machines allows individuals to control many exercisefactors, including resistance (weight), ranges of motion and number of repetitions and sets for strength building, and duration, incline, speed, resistance, and training schedule on aerobic apparatus (such as bicycles and treadmills). Controlling and adjusting these parameters in order to change training aims and needs during the training process significantly reduces injury risk factors such as muscle tears and inflammations.
The gym is a protected artificial environment that can be accessible to exercisers at all times and under all conditions. Not every major city offers open areas or protected environments for running outdoors. The gym is accessible for exercise and offers a wide array of training options as well.
3. No weather limitations
Many outdoor exercisers are affected by weather conditions to the point that they may be completely “locked out” of all sport activity during inclement weather. Gym frequenters, on the other hand, enjoy controlled temperature and ideal visibility conditions at all hours of activity. They can perform their regular workouts any and every day of the year, exerting themselves to the required levels, and extracting the most they can from themselves as they strive towards their goals.
Many gym machines offer real-time feedback and data about an exerciser’s activity: duration, type of resistance (e.g., weight, incline), speed, RPMs, number of stories climbed, calories burned – whatever the apparatus measures. Such feedback stimulates motivation by challenging and encouraging those on the machines to continue with their tiring physical activity as they approach their goals.
5. Positive social framework
Social activity in the gym gives club members a feeling of belonging and enhances the quality and quantity of their athletic endeavours.
6. Opportunity for individual work
The gym is also the ideal place for those “loners” who come to work out rather than to develop social ties. Everyone in the gym can choose his or her own type of activity and work on a “personally tailored” training program. Working out in the gym does not force people to wait for a partner or for enough people to divide up into teams, as is the case for ball games.
7. Graduated exercise
One of the main principles employed to prevent injuries during physical activity is gradation, which means working according to a personal scale of effort. Due to gym apparatus instrumentation, exercisers can now regulate various exertion factors and adapt them to their own level and goals.
8. Isolating muscle groups
The weakest link principle implies that the strength of a chain is measured by its weakest link. The same is true of our bodies. If we want to perform chin-ups but our forearm muscles are weak, we will not be able to perform
the exercise even if our back muscles are strong. The instruments in the gym enable us to isolate those weak muscle groups and strengthen specific muscles.
9. Muscle group balance in training
A structured, supervised training schedule provides exercisers with a healthy balance between muscle groups. Here, the fitness trainer plays an important role.
Sometimes there may be an imbalance in tone between strong anterior muscles (e.g., pectorals) and weaker posterior/dorsal muscles (e.g., scapular adductors), but in the gym, we can strengthen weak muscle groups without
detracting from strong muscle groups. The resulting balance contributes to a healthier posture, which, apart from its aesthetic benefits, helps to prevent or reduce back pains.
10. Improvement of body symmetry
Every human body has a dominant side (right or left), which is often reflected in posture. Activity in the gym allows us to work on individual muscle groups and this helps to reduce differentials between the two sides of the body. Structured, supervised training following a tailored schedule in the gym has been proven to reduce asymmetry significantly, to correct posture defects by raising awareness of the problem, and to instill correct activity habits.
11. Balanced development of fitness components
The gym offers optimal conditions for developing all fitness components: muscle strength and endurance, cardiopulmonary endurance, coordination, flexibility, and speed. Balanced development of these components is essential for harmonious physical health, which is necessary for effective body functioning in the life cycle.
12. Varied activities in the gym
The large variety of sophisticated equipment available in the gym offers all exercisers a broad selection of activities. The variety also stimulates interest and encourages individuals to persevere in their physical activity.
13. Background music
Music can either stimulate or moderate the body in action, depending on the intensity and substance. Today, many exercisers prefer to work out to the beat of their own MP4 music. In many gyms, music is simply part of the background, and therefore gym operators should take exercisers’ wishes into consideration while also keeping an ear out for overall volume levels.
