The One Mistake You’re Making At The Gym That’s Preventing You From Losing Weight

November 4, 2016 by Sara Alderman

When I started using the gym in college, I was actually pretty good about going 3 days per week. I would plan to go whenever I knew Real Housewives or Grey’s Anatomy were on and just go on the elliptical for the entire episode. But now when I look back on that fitness plan, I realize that nothing really changed about my body. I didn’t lose or gain weight, I wasn’t toned either, and I didn’t even feel stronger in my legs.

Shortly after college, I discovered that changing up your exercise routine is the way to go. There are so many specialized workout studios now: spin, barre, pilates, you name it. I even once did a class that took place entirely on a trampoline! Not only did I start seeing results from combining different workouts, I also felt better in general. But don’t just take my word for it. Lauren Fairbanks, a personal trainer at Equinox, told Popsugar, “You need to mix it up in order to avoid boredom and plateauing.”

You know muscle memory? Well, it sounds like that applies to just our bodies overall. If you keep doing the same exercise over-and-over, it will just become another routine to your body. Everyone needs to change up their routine to keep things interesting, and that includes our workout plans!
