Weider home gyms have been the leaders in home exercise equipment since the 1970s. Weider home gyms are affordable and can be used for every type of exercise. The gym can be used for weight training and resistance work for those with long experience using fitness equipment, or provide just the right exercise platform for a newcomer. With coordinated exercise routines, the Weider home gyms can provide a complete workout with just one piece of equipment.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Familiarise yourself with all the parts of your new Weider home gym. Begin every exercise session with a good set of stretching and warm-up exercises before beginning any strenuous workouts.

  2. 2

    Use the minimum amount of weight resistance for weight loss. Start at a low number of repetitions and gradually build up the number as you get stronger and begin to lose weight. Do not rest for more than 30 seconds between types of exercises.

  3. 3

    Choose alternate days for various exercises. For example, on Monday, Wednesday and Friday do strength-building exercises. On Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday do resistance exercises. On Sunday do walking or running to increase the cardiovascular aspects of your workouts.

  4. 4

    Watch the video that comes with the gym and decide which sets of exercises will be best for you to start your training. Make a list and keep a chart that states how many of what exercises you do each day and add any increases in repetitions or new exercises.

  5. 5

    Cool down after each session by using similar exercises to the stretches or use yoga-style relaxation exercises. Never finish abruptly.

Tips and warnings

  • Keep a diary with the Weider home gym and track your progress in exercising and weight loss if that is your goal.
  • Never attempt any new exercise routine without having a thorough checkup by your physician.
