Training plan FAQs

Q: What are Training Plans

A: Training Plans are monthly workout programmes available in our PureGym app that are tailored to you to help you achieve your fitness goals. You’ll be provided with up to 3 workouts to do each week in order to achieve your chosen goal and matched to your fitness level. Each workout contains step by step instructions of what exercises to do, how-to steps and videos of the movements to help you learn new exercises and explore different bits of kit in our gyms. Try one of our guided training plans to kickstart your fitness journey!

 

Q: How do I select a Training Plan?

A: Once logged into the PureGym app go to the Training tab. Just answer a few questions about your fitness goal and level. You’ll be provided a plan with three workouts per week tailored to your needs!

 

Q: How do I change my goal?

A: We have launched a very basic and stripped-down version of the training plans section of the app in order to learn how best to improve. The ability to change goals is currently being developed and will be released as soon as it’s ready.

 

Q: How do I change my fitness level?

A: We have launched a very basic and stripped-down version of the training plans section of the app in order to learn how best to improve. The ability to change fitness level is currently being developed and will be released as soon as it’s ready.

 

Q: How do I know if my form is correct?

A: Within our training plans every exercise has a handy GIF showing you how the exercise should correctly be performed. However, perfect form will look different from person to person, so if you are unsure please speak to one of our PTs who will be more than happy to help.

 

Q: How heavy should I be lifting? What weight should I use?

A: Unfortunately, there is no way to say exactly how much weight you should be using as this is dependent on a number of factors and can vary person to person. However, within our Absolute Beginner and Beginner plans we have provided estimated starting weight ranges to help you find what is right for you. These can be helpful if you are unsure where to start, but we do encourage you to start light and work your way up. As a general guide, we recommend that if you can comfortably complete more than 2 reps over the rep range provided you may benefit from using a slightly heavier weight. However, please remember that it is important to prioritise correct form over the weight. Don’t try to lift heavier until you are safely and correctly executing the movement pattern.

 

Q: What’s happening to the workout plans that are currently in the app?

A: We’ve taken on your feedback and have produced new and improved Training Plans. In order to make room, we’ve moved the Workout Plans out of the app.

Don’t worry, you’ll still have unlimited access to your mobile friendly Workout Plan, but this will no longer sit within the app. Listed below are the weblinks for each plan so you can continue to use your plan as you’ve done before;
