3 Beginner Workouts to Achieve Your Fitness Goals

28 March 2024

Whether your goal is to shed extra pounds, tighten and tone your muscles, or maintain a balanced workout, getting started can be daunting and confusing. Irrespective of the destination, we’ve got you sorted. Here are some specific exercises to get you started on your fitness journey to smashing those goals – as recommended by PURE Personal Trainers.
Weight loss
Burpees are a great compound exercise that can help kickstart your metabolism into overdrive, helping with weight loss. A versatile exercise, burpees blend the high aerobic intensity of a jump with the muscle-strengthening benefits of a squat and push-up.
The burpee blitz
How to start: Start standing with feet hip-width apart, lower into a squat, kick feet back to plank position, lower into a push-up, push back up, jump forward into a squat, then explode up, arms extended towards the sky.
Building muscle
The one-leg deadlift with a kettlebell is a focused exercise that enhances balance and strengthens the core and lower body muscles. Targeting the hamstrings, glutes, and lower back, the one-leg deadlift promotes stability and strength.
One-leg deadlift with kettlebell
How to start: Stand with feet hip-width apart, holding a kettlebell in one hand. Keeping your back straight, hinge at the hips to lower the kettlebell towards the ground while lifting one leg straight back. Engage your core and glutes as you return to the starting position.
Improving stability
This one’s for mums and mums-to-be! Strengthening your core and achieving stability is crucial for ideal pre-natal and post-natal health. The refined squat, involving a wall and an exercise ball, helps improve stability. This exercise effectively targets the lower body and important muscle groups like the quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, and the crucial pelvic floor muscles which are vital during pregnancy and childbirth.
The ball wall squat
How to start: Place the ball in the small of your back against the wall, with your feet hip-width apart. Lower your body, rolling the ball down the wall behind you as you descend, ensuring your knees do not surpass your toes. Rise slowly back to the standing position, keeping the ball as still as possible.
