How to Start Seeing Results at the Gym

Get better results at the gym. Even just going to the gym for the first time can be a challenge – all the more for people who didn’t work out regularly when they were growing up. Feeling like nothing has changed after going a few times can be discouraging. Sometimes, you just need to do things the right way to see results.

Increase Your Weights

Have you been going to the gym regularly for a while, but aren’t really feeling much different? This might be the option for you. Some people might just hit the gym for a half hour a couple of times a week, lifting some weights and using a treadmill and then calling it a day. There’s nothing wrong with that at all since you’re maintaining your health quite well. But if you want to see concrete physical transformation you need to push yourself a bit more. Trying lifting heavier weights for longer reps. Do more reps. Test yourself to see where your current boundary is, and then try to inch past it every time you work out.

Make it a Habit

Some exercise is always better than no exercise. But if you work out once a month, you’re not going to see any meaningful change. Habit is key. If your exercise becomes routine, it means that you will be actively improving your body multiple times a week. Your body will become noticeably stronger, leaner, and will have more stamina in a matter of weeks and months. This is even more true if you exercise every day. Even just thirty minutes of exercise every morning can work wonders. Making a habit of exercise can improve your mental health as well. All in all, the benefits are plentiful.

Eat Correctly

Daily exercise is amazing. Heavy exercise and challenging oneself to improve can bring the fastest improvement. But if you want to really change how your body looks and how you feel, you need to pair that with eating full, nutritional meals three times a day. Avoid processed foods and excess sugar. Focus on protein and healthy carbs. Hydration is equally important, so drink plenty of water (twelve cups a day). As hard as it may be at first, the difference in how you feel and perform will shock you.


Health is always an ongoing process. Every single person is distinct and can address their health needs differently. If you want to make serious changes in how you appear, you need to make serious changes in your habits to reflect that.
