Healthy or Toxic Gym Training Culture

Culture: the ideas, customs, and social behaviour of a particular people. 🌟

Whether you realise it or not, there are strong cultural forces that will influence your approach towards physical training or exercising.

You are influenced by the people around you whether you realise it or not. So, in the context of training, the culture you find yourself in can lift you up or drag you down.

Humans are tribal creatures, they want to fit in. Everywhere there are undertones of “how things are done around here” and if you pay close attention, you may notice micro-adjustments in your behaviour to be accepted by the pack.

So a little hack to automatically start shaping behaviours into ones that make you thrive.. make sure you surround yourself with the right training culture.

Our top 5

  • Training culture or your city or even suburb.
  • Training culture of the gym you select.
  • Training culture of your household.
  • Training culture of your workplace.
  • Training culture of your friendship group.

A little food for thought, which one of these has had the biggest influence on you? 🤸‍♀️

We look forward to seeing you in the gym!
