My experience at Gold’s Gym at ubc has been nothing but amazing! Working with personal trainer Ariana has been the best decision I’ve made. Ariana is extremely knowledgeable in terms of not only training but also nutrition, and she really tailors your sessions according to your fitness goals. One hour flies by when you’re training with her because she’s super personable but also so efficient with the time! I’ve already learned so much from the four sessions we’ve had so far and I’ve never felt so motivated to become healthier and stronger. I would highly recommend Gold’s gym, especially personal training with Ariana!

Bryan Wong has been more than a 5 star coach and personal trainer. His flexibility, knowledge, professionalism, and care are all 5 stars. I was unsure about using a PT but I've gotten more than what I asked for and am very happy.

Golds gym university market place is a wonderful gym with an amazing gym environment plus great staff! Ariana has been nothing but amazing throughout my fitness journey and without her I don’t think I would be where I am at today! Her support and knowledge has helped me tremendously. The tips I have learned from Ariana has made a huge difference in my training and I can definitely see a big growth in my progress! if you plan on joining this gym and are looking for a personal trainer I would 100% recommend Ariana! 🙂

I’ve never felt so welcomed and comfortable at a gym before! Everyone there is so kind. I have to give a special shout-out to someone who has been exceptionally welcoming. Ariana is one of the personal trainers there and she has helped me tremendously with my fitness journey. She is very knowledgeable and easy to connect with. Highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to get into working out for the first time!

This is a very warm and welcoming gym. Most of the clients are university students or people living in the neighborhood. Both the staffs and clients are so friendly, making the entire environment comfortable. Talking about PT, I have been trained under Ariana’s instructions for the past two months, and I absolutely love how professional and inspiring she is! I wasn’t new to gym and I was trained under two different PTs before. Comparing my past and recent experiences, I think Ariana is the type of PT that truly spends time planning out systematic schedules to fulfill clients’ needs rather than throwing random stuffs from days to days. Since day 1 of the training, she has already awaken my muscles and strength for compound exercises which were scheduled weeks later. She is able to provide easy-to-follow instructions and detail suggestions for further improvement. She definitely pushes me to challenge myself more. I couldn’t be able to imagine how much I have accomplished within such a short period of time. I used to go to gym just for the sake of “health” and I struggled mentally every single time. However, I really enjoyed my times working out in the gym this two months, and even looking forwards to attending specific “interesting” sessions haha. Overall, if you are looking for a PT who is both professional and fun to talk with, I would highly recommend Ariana to you!

I have been training with Ariana for almost a month now. She has been very receptive to my concerns with an underlying health issue that poses a challenge to my weight management queries. She is a very dedicated personal trainer who puts immense thought into her workouts and has always been willing to give me advice. I have also seen positive results over time and I owe it to her for that. I appreciate Ariana as a personal coach and friend, as well as her consistent guidance and motivation. If you’d like some help and motivation along your own fitness journey, I’d definitely recommend Ariana!

Golds is my favourite gym, especially their personal trainers … Ariana is the best personal trainer I have ever had, honestly! She is so professional, skilled, friendly, and never made me feel silly for being weak or new. Because of her, my confidence is boosted, I look and feel so much healthier, and I enjoy gymming.

I have been training with Ariana for almost a month now. She has been very receptive to my concerns with an underlying health issue that poses a challenge to my weight management queries. She is a very dedicated personal trainer who puts immense thought into her workouts and has always been willing to give me advice. I have also seen positive results over time and I owe it to her for that. I appreciate Ariana as a personal coach and friend, as well as her consistent guidance and motivation. If you’d like some help and motivation along your own fitness journey, I’d definitely recommend Ariana!

Golds is my favourite gym, especially their personal trainers … Ariana is the best personal trainer I have ever had, honestly! She is so professional, skilled, friendly, and never made me feel silly for being weak or new. Because of her, my confidence is boosted, I look and feel so much healthier, and I enjoy gymming.

Finding Your Motivation

By Blog

Helping you find your motivation

We get it. Finding the motivation to stay fit can be hard at times, and more often than not other things come in the way. We’ll review simple but actionable ways to help you find your motivation and set yourself up for success.

Key principles in motivation to help you stick to your fitness goals

Motivation is the driving force behind our actions, for good or bad. This comes from a variety of influences but ultimately decides if we will take action or not. As the cooler weather, rain and short days set in, motivation can at times be hard to muster up to physically get into the gym. We all look for that kick-start, the drive to get up and go, but sometimes it’s just not there. Understanding a little bit more about motivation can help in finding it. Here we will break that down into easy to implement tools to re-ignite your internal drive for exercise.

Motivation can be broken down into two types, intrinsic and extrinsic motivation.

Intrinsic: Internal forces that drive behaviour. Such as thwarting off disease, the feeling of accomplishment, stress reduction, feeling better.

Extrinsic: External forces that drive behaviour. This can be weight loss goals, physical appearance, being accountable to another person.

Everyone has different motives behind their fitness journey. The ultimate goal would be to find a balance between internal and external desires to create a lasting lifestyle. 

To figure out how you are motivated and how you can better use your motivation, try answering these key questions:

  • What is it you want to get out of your fitness routine? 
  • Do your goals align with a longer-term lifestyle change? 
  • If they do, what is the desired outcome and commitment you’re making to yourself?
  • If they don’t, what kind of lifestyle goals can you align with your current ones?

Use these questions to align your goals with your motivations, recognize if your goals are more internal or external. If they are more external, try finding a few more internal and vice versa.

Setting yourself up for success

Creating an accountability system

Accountability can come in a few different forms, such as:

  • External accountability with friends and family checking in.
  • Your own set of accountable systems that you use to track your workout days.
  • Let people know what you are working towards, find a friend who can check-in and celebrate each other’s successes.
  • Work with a trainer or sign up for group fitness classes. These external accountability partners can pave a great way to success in your fitness routines. 

Setting your days for success

Find your time that works in your schedule and stick to it! Are you someone who needs their workout to set the tone of their day? Or is after work  for stress relief  a better option? Know your optimal workout time  and schedule that into your everyday

Some simple daily actions to keep you on track can include these:
  • If you workout in the morning, have your workout clothes ready to go the night before. Remove the decision making in the morning, creating a “grab and go” atmosphere. 
  • If you are on the opposite end and workout at the end of your day try packing your gym bag in your car, having your gym clothes ready to go right when you get home.
  • The easier we make the process the better chances we have to act. Simple daily habits like these may seem small, but have the power to create major change. 

Motivation gets you started, habits keep you going

Align your goal with a lifestyle as opposed to a deadline

Goals are a great place to begin to kick start your motivation.  After setting these goals, we find issues in actually maintaining the behaviour. When you can align your lifestyle with your goals, you will find more internal reasons to continue beyond the goal. 

For example: One might want to lose 10lbs before their wedding. We would want to know why that weight loss matters besides looking good. Could it be for improved livelihood and energy? What about thwarting off disease later in life and reducing the burden on their partner? There are many ways to internalize an external goal. A critical look into why the goal matters is one way of aligning that goal with your lifestyle.

Create a reward system

Create a system of rewards for immediate post-workout and through regular intervals into the future. These can be as simple as your post-workout routine of a warm shower and smoothie or other yummy breakfast. 

Future rewards can include “after 6 weeks of following my routine I will treat myself to a massage.” Keep these going and find different creative ways of adding to your rewards to keep you motivated.

Energy Boosting Tips to Beat that Midday Slump

By Blog

We’ve all been there. Our energy has been great all day. We’ve had a productive morning all the way until 2 pm hits and we are  left wanting to check out and take a nap. We’re left getting that afternoon coffee which we know*will keep us up at night, or opting for a quick sugar snack to ease the slump. There are some simple tricks to help you overcome this midday slump. Below, we’ve compiled some tips from snack ideas and small activities to help you overcome the siesta hour. 

Water: 

If you are thirsty drink water, if you are hungry drink water, if you are tired drink water – this tends to be a catch-all for most of our bodily ailments. Usually, the thought is to have something with caffeine for that extra zing in the afternoon, but water may be the one thing we need. Not enough water in a day can lead to fatigue. On average most people need 2-4 litres of water a day depending on their activity level. 

Smaller Lunches: 

Eating a smaller lunch can assist in avoiding the midday slump. Although the research is unclear, it is assumed that a larger lunch provides a bigger spike in blood sugar with a bigger crash into the “slump”. Try something lighter, with more nutrients to help maintain your blood sugar better. 

Healthy, Whole Snacking: 

To maintain energy levels, it’s best to eat small meals more frequently throughout the day (yay for snacking). When adding an afternoon snack, focus on complete foods. For example, nuts/seeds, hard-boiled eggs, and smoothies can all offer you a great source of healthy fats, fibre, and protein. This will help keep you full and provide sustained energy levels. 

Stay Away From Sugar: 

Sugar provides quick energy, but can also provide quick crashes. It may feel good in the moment, but typically you’re left more tired than before. Try a piece of fruit such as a banana or apple, this will provide you with enough fibre and sugar to give  that boost without crashing shortly afterward.

Get Some Movement: 

It has been found that a midday workout can not only boost your energy but also increase productivity. If getting to your gym midday isn’t possible, try going out for a walk or use some online resources for desk yoga, stretches, or mini exercises. 

Take a Walking Meeting:

In our age of working from home and virtual meetings, this is becoming a larger trend where it’s easier to plug in and take a walk. A walking meeting is a great way to add some movement and variety into your day. Not to mention if it’s a bright sunny day, the boost you can get from some time outdoors.

Other Tips: 

Although the midday slump has more to do with our daily activities, you want to also check in on your sleep hygiene. If you sleep is impacted at night, you may be more prone to tiredness throughout your day. Try staying away from any screens an hour before bed. Take time to relax, This can be through reading, meditating, or any other self-care that allows you to relax.
