The Montrose is excited to offer residents of our apartments in Chicago access to a brand new, state-of-the-art fitness center. Filled with all the latest workout equipment, our residents don't have to go to a nearby gym to exercise. Instead, they can just head down to our 1,800 sq. ft. fitness center that is located right inside our building.
Are you eager to start working out in our fitness center but unsure of what to do? If so, here are some great tips that will help you create your very own personalized workout routine that can be used in our new fitness center.
Know Your Limitations
When creating your own workout routine, it is important to know your limitations. If you haven't worked out in a while, there is a good chance you probably aren't going to be able to instantly run 10 miles on a treadmill and do 50 lifts with weights. You will need to start slowly and work your way up to more intense exercises.
While creating your own workout routine, think about your limitations. Be realistic about what you can do and your endurance levels. Creating a routine that is too hard can result in burnout or even cause an injury.
Remember to Plan for Rest Days
Make sure you reserve at least one day a week as a day of rest. This is a day where you don't do any intense workout and just let your body recover. Planning recovery days reduces your risk of injury as your body has time to heal.
It is important to remember that just because it is a planned rest day, it doesn't mean you sit around doing nothing. On your rest days, you will want to engage in light activity that will keep you moving. Some examples of light activity include long walks, gentle yoga or swimming in our resort-style swimming pool.
