by: Jeric Danao

Going to the gym is one of the best ways of keeping fit. You get to burn all the unwanted fat from your body, sweat out all the toxins, and also, going to the gym can be anywhere you want. Gyms around Makati, Taguig, Quezon City, and pretty much around the metro is something for everyone to do in their spare time; and speaking of spare time, what better way to spend that than going to the gym? Especially for all those out there who are thinking about doing it for the first time!

What most people think about working out is that it can be a harsh thing to do, specifically for beginners. While working out in general can be hard, it doesn’t have to be so, especially with the numerous gym routines out there that are friendly to beginners everywhere. If you yourself are wondering what those are, here are some routines that definitely say ‘gym routines 101’:


A lot of gyms around Makati and other places in the metro offer this type of workout as one of the essentials in working out as a whole. In fact, cardio is actually one of the most effective forms of workouts there is. Think about it, while lifting weights can help you build strength and muscle, the most important thing about working out in general is to lose the weight; and with cardio in your arsenal of beginner routines, you’re all set!


Speaking of cardio, this routine will do more than shed the pounds, it will absolutely MURDER them to the point of oblivion. Before attempting to do this routine (don’t worry, this is absolutely friendly for beginners), make sure to do some breathing exercises and stretches so you won’t be experiencing any pains or complications while doing burpees. Then, once you’re prepared enough, start small and gradually build up your reps and sets to ensure the total eradication of the extra pounds.


Another important aspect of working out is to tone your body to conditions you want. Thankfully, this kind of routine can help you do just that!

Squats are one of the most intense routines there is in any gym, whether in Makati or anywhere else. It focuses on toning your abdomen, your legs, and your buttocks to be as firm and sag-free as it can be. With that said about squats, it’s safe to say to never skip leg day!


For those of you who wish to get a more defined chest, and well-muscled arms, then push-ups are the right routine for you. When it comes to this kind of routine, as with the burpees, start small, then gradually build up the number of reps you can do during your routine.

For instance, start with a simple 10 push-ups, then 15, then 20. Once you’re able to do more than the number you expect, you’d be amazed on how much this gym routine can benefit your body and health.

Key Takeaway

Any gym around Makati and the rest of the metro are sure to welcome any beginner that comes through those doors. Think you’ve got what it takes to survive any routine that comes your way? Then, give it a try!
