Gym memberships and personal training are expensive and intimidating, but lots of people swear by going to the gym and being coached in person.

Sarah said “When you’re strong and fit everyday life is easier. Everything you do becomes easier the stronger you are.”

If your goal is to become really fit and change your body, unfortunately, you’re going to need a gym.

In the long run, you’re not going to be able to continue on your fitness journey if you don’t have weights at home.

Sarah said: “To really get the results you see in the before and after pictures, you need progressive overload (weight training) and who has that at home?

“Unless you’re Simon Cowell and you’ve got an amazing gym in your house, then you don’t have that progression.”

We’re not talking about a few dumbbells, you need a whole range of equipment in different weights.

If you’re doing home workout videos with no weights or simply going on the same long walk every single day, you’re not going to stay fit for long because you need to progress

Sarah explained: “You just end up doing the same thing over and over again with the same weights.

“You might get results for a couple of weeks but then it becomes easy because you’ve adapted to that weight and then what?”

In the gym, you’ll have access to a wide range of equipment, space and a much more motivational environment.

Sarah said: “You have to keep making it harder to keep moving forward and keep challenging yourself otherwise nothing happens.

“Some people will go to the gym and for a year they will pick up the five-kilo dumbbells because that’s their weight, but that’s not how it works.

“You used the five-kilo dumbbells last week, so now it’s time to pick up the six.”
