GYM EQUIPMENT BASICS

BY The Blog Team

It’s that time of year when we’re inspired to dust off our membership card, lace up our trainers, and head straight to the local gym. But where do we begin? If you’ve never been trained on proper weight training techniques, machines are a great way to start. Machines guide us in proper movement patterns, which make them safe and easy to use, and with visuals and instructions, they’re also less intimidating.

The idea behind this movement was that meditating on peace would create peace. I find it especially fitting that World Peace Meditation Day is observed on the last day of the calendar year.
