How Commercial Gym Equipment Shopping Is Done

It is not an easy and straightforward affair when you are shopping for commercial gym equipment for your plan to open a fitness centre or gym business. You know that there are hundreds of different products available out there, but you’re not buying all of them. Therefore, it makes sense to study and learn which equipment best suits your needs, while weighing in other factors like space, budget, brand, safety, and warranty concerns.

Commercial Gym EquipmentSo, before you spend some money on Commercial Gym Equipment, we recommend that you first appreciate the following factors:

1 – Space Considerations

You must figure out how much space the equipment will occupy before you even think of buying one. You must understand how crucial space is in choosing the right equipment, especially when you have a restricted or limited area. The gym or fitness centre requires space for other amenities, too. It means you must weigh on the comfort level of your clients as well as the entertainment and bathrooms. In other words, the equipment you buy won’t occupy every inch of space in your establishment.

2 – Budget plan

You must buy Commercial Gym Equipment based on a specified budget. The purpose of having a pre-determined budget plan is for you not to exceed or go overboard. You must choose the products you’ll buy based on how much you can afford and not the other way around. The good news is that you won’t run out of options even if you are on a tight budget.

3 – Brand

The purpose of opting for premium and renowned brands of gym equipment from Teks Fitness Supplies is that you want to emphasise quality over quantity. It means that you must look for products which you believe will last long even with use and abuse. Considering that you are buying gym equipment for commercial use, you must acknowledge that you cannot settle for something designed for home use.

4 – Safety

For you and your gym members to avoid the risk of getting hurt, it is essential to examine initially if the equipment satisfies all the safety standards. There’s an emphasis on the level of safety of the gym equipment you’re buying because you plan on offering it for public consumption. It is not like you are purchasing a standard treadmill for your consumption.

5 – Product Warranty and Maintenance

Finally, be sure you focus on product warranty and the convenience of maintaining the gym equipment. You cannot settle for something less that one year of warranty for service and parts. The one thing that legitimises a product’s durability is when the manufacturer offers an extended warranty, thereby giving you confidence that it is built to last. Meanwhile, maintenance refers to the convenience of keeping the equipment clean and well-conditioned.

How To Go from High-Carb to Low-Carb Diet

weight lossIt is surely nice to eat anything you want; whatever food you crave for. While it is really

advantageous for those who don’t gain weight easily because no matter what they eat would

just go down the drain, the problem now comes for those who have a slow metabolism as they

tend to store fat more into their bodies.

 

Perhaps, this is the reason why a lot of low-carb diets have emerged. People are now engaged

with these types of diets because of the promises they give; weight loss.

So how does it really work? Is there really truth to losing weight if you have a low-carb diet? If

you are planning to go from high-carb to low-carb diet, here are the things you need to

remember.

 

The first thing you need to know is that carbohydrates are the body’s source of energy. So if

you are engaged in tedious or physical activities, you need a lot of energy; hence, you tend to eat

more high-carb foods. Given this, it might be difficult for you in the first few days of your

transition from high-carb to low-carb diet knowing that your body is in the state of withdrawal.

You need to expect that your cravings for high-carb foods will be really high. Meaning it

is somewhat psychological because your body is used to eating carbs and going without will be

really difficult as you tend to think more about high carb foods.

So instead of thinking about foods high in carbs, it will be best to eat foods that are high in fiber

and good fats because they give satisfaction. For example, eating a lot of salad greens with tuna or chicken chunks. You can also eat foods that are made with flax seeds. Avocados are another good source of healthy fats. However, the best energy producing fat is medium-chain triglycerides (MCT’s). MCT’s don’t require digestion and pass directly into the bloodstream. This makes MCT’s a good alternative to carbs for energy. A good source of MCT’s is coconut oil and butter from grass-fed cows. Foods high in healthy fats can make you feel full without having to worry about gaining weight because they are low-carb.

 

Another thing you need to remember is to never go hungry. Low-carbs doesn’t mean going hungry. It means that you need to eat fewer carbs by getting food with low-carb content or none at all. The most common mistake for most people is they binge eat because they have been

hungry for a long time; thus, instead of losing weight, they end up gaining. So, plan your meals,

including you low-carb snacks. This way, you do not binge eat because of hunger.

 

Planning your meals will also help you a lot. Low-carb does not mean that the food doesn’t taste

good. In fact, there are a lot of simple recipes for a low-carb diet that will satisfy your taste buds.

Making your food will be best because you will know what goes into your body.

 

Another important aspect is to get the support that you need. When you go into this hard

transition, you might as well have your family involved. This way, you will no longer be tempted

to cheat. Also, since you are all eating the same food, then shopping and preparation won’t be

as hard. Getting support from other people who are also going through a low carb diet is a good

motivation to stick to your diet.

 

If you are feeling jittery or disoriented, this may be because of the carb crash. Don’t worry as this

normally happens. Still, stick to your new diet plan and eat as normally as possible with low-carb

food. The first week will be the hardest but you will surely get through it.

 

You don’t want to completely eliminate all carbs. A typical low-carb diet allows 20 to 60 grams of carbohydrates. The 20 grams per day is a very low carb intake. These amounts of carbohydrates provide 80 to 240 calories. The Keto diet recommends 5% of your calories come from carbs. This calculates to about 25 grams of carbs per day for a 2000 calorie a day diet.

 

Lastly, drink a lot of water because this will always make you feel full. Also, drinking more water will help to remove toxins from your body. In a matter of weeks, you will feel the difference in your body. You will feel lighter and you will be much healthier.
