Land said nearly every time he puts someone on that circuit, he or she finishes 50 percent faster than if they were just to lift weights on their own. In addition, the circuit is designed with clear-cut pictures and explanations to help if the member is not a seasoned exerciser.
“Somebody who has never even touched a piece of equipment should be able to do it correctly and safely,” said Land.
Land said he understands there are other priorities going on in life that make it tough to want to exercise sometimes. He said the key is staying focused and trying to incorporate some of those other priorities – friends or family time, perhaps – into your workout routine.
Make fitness a priority in your family by scheduling an hour to exercise every day after dinner, he said. Go for a walk, take a bike ride, roller skate, even play Wii Fit.
“It’s a way to make sure that you’re going to be able to enjoy the time you do get to spend with them because you do feel better,” he said.
