The key to reaching just about any goal is consistent effort.

When you have made serious headway in reaching your fitness goal, be it to lose weight, to gain strength or gain muscle tone, the last thing that you want is to be sidelined by an injury. At Alive Personal Training, we focus on providing you smart training, not just any typical workout that you have found online or on youtube.

If you want to reach for fitness goals without being hampered by injuries, here are a few tips from Alive PT experts in fitness Roseville residents can trust.

Use the correct exercise technique

Every body part is designed to move in a specific way or pattern. If you fail to perform an exercise correctly, you risk pulling or tearing a muscle or connective tissues. When exercising, make sure to perform each rep with perfect form in mind.

Lifting weights

When performing strength training exercises, leave your ego outside the gym. No one is monitoring how much weight you are lifting. Lift weights according to your current capacity. What’s too much weight? You’re lifting a weight that’s too heavy if you cannot maintain proper form with each rep.

Warm up

Think warm-ups are boring? Think again. Failure to warm up is among the top reasons even seasoned athletes get injured. During a warm-up, you are priming your muscles for optimal performance by decreasing blood viscosity and promoting flexibility and mobility. Setting aside time for working out includes giving yourself ample time to warm up.


Failure to stretch is another common mistake by individuals who want to breeze through their workouts. Used in conjunction with warm-ups, stretching offers several benefits apart from reducing risks for injury. These benefits include promoting muscle pliability, promotion of muscular circulation, and minimisation of next-day muscle soreness.

Do not over-train

While there are people who practically have to drag themselves to their fitness sessions, there are those who seem to always look forward to going to it. But as with most things, too much of a good thing can also be bad. When you do not give your body adequate time to rest and heal itself, its energy stores become depleted and it weakens. Follow the schedule given by your trainer and resist the urge to train unnecessarily.


Every time you come to your group fitness or personal training session, the most important thing that you should bring is focus. Focus simply means putting all your concentrated attention to every rep, every set, putting your best effort and setting aside all forms of distraction.

Training really helped in in my fitness goals. Over the past year I've lost about 13 kilos. Good combination of doing a training and exercising 3 days a week and a little bit of change in diet as well. Training has been real critical part of it and doing bootcamp with Michael has really helped to keep me motivated, keep me going to training and pushing me beyond what I would do if I was lift my own devices where I sort of slack of a little or not even bother going. So it really gets me motivation to keep going and get out there each of those mornings and work as hard as I can.
