Donna asks…

Does a 30 minute circuit workout really work?

I started going to Planet Fitness Gym as a beginner. I noticed they had a 30 minute circuit workout in the back where you do the machines for 1 minute a piece. You're suppose to also do "step-ups" inbetween the machines for a minute also. Does this exercise routine really help to lose the weight? I need personal opinions! Thanks!!

lisa answers:

You would probably be surprised how much of a workout you can get done in 30 minutes. By switching machines so often and doing step ups between, you will keep your heart rate up close to or within your target heart rate zone and that will improve fitness.

Michael asks…

Which should I do first in my workout- cardio or strength training?

I'm getting back into working out, trying to get rid of the last of the weight I've got left over from having my daughter. I want to tone up as much as I can, and lose about 10 lbs overall. Yesterday I did 30 mins on the eliptical (3 miles) and then did a circuit of 20 excercise machines (planet fitness circuit, not curves) Will repeating this workout regularly give me best results or can you recommend another workout routine? I have approx. an hour to work out every day/other day. Thanks!

lisa answers:

Cardio is definitely best to do first -- doing strength first increases your risk of injury and decreases your cardio capacity. It sounds like the workout you're doing is a good one, but make sure to increase the intensity (either the level on the elliptical or the weight or reps on the machines) every week or two to ensure maximal gains!

Donald asks…

help me out with my workout routinee (10pnts for best answer!!)?

Okay, I just joined a gym and I really want to get in shape. (I am 5'6-5'7, 179lbs. with a curvy body like Kim Kardashian)
What is a good workout routine to do to get my tummy toned and lose the fat on it?
I already do the sqwats and lunges to work on my butt and legs (they are pretty nice aha)
also, I joined planet fitness (if that helps) and I was also wondering if they offer personal trainers?

any suggestions?
(please no smart a** comments..)

These are some very effective ab exercises that you can do at the gym or home. You also want to make sure you are eating frequently to help boost your metabolism also.

Lower Ab Exercise Ball Crunch

For this particular lower ab exercise you will need a standard exercise ball. Don't worry... They are reasonably priced at around 10 to 15 dollars.

To get started place the ball underneath your stomach. Support yourself by using your hands for stability.

Bring your knees forward as far as you can, and then release. This exercise will really get your lower abs burning . Which is a good thing!

For maximum results, this routine should be done in 3 sets of 10 to 20 range. Do as many as you can to target those lower abs.

Lower Ab Bench Crunch

Weight benches can be used for more than just doing bench press. They are also great for working out those lower abs. Remember to always frequently change your exercises so they can remain effective.

Doing so does help you confuse the muscles, this process will help you reach your goals quicker.

For this exercise you can also use a stool or a chair that doesn't have a back to it. Sit on the edge of the bench with your legs elevated.

To stabilize yourself, place your hands behind you on the sides of the bench or back of the bench. Now bring your legs up as far as you can. This is a very effective abdominal workout that specifically targets those lower abs.

This workout can be done in 3 sets of 15.

Add these lower ab exercises to your current routine, or if you just need a good place to "start" you can't go wrong!

Hope these exercises help you Alicia!

Susan asks…

Best, fastest way to get into shape!?

I have been lacking on daily exercise this summer & I have volleyball camp coming up in the beginning of August. I really need to firm up & rebuild my muscle tone. What is the best way to approach it? I belong to Planet Fitness but what would be the best workout routine to strengthen arms, legs & abdomen. Help greatly appreciated <3

lisa answers:

Jogging at least a mile a day will definately get you into shape...i know it sounds like a lot, but find a slow pace so you won't kill yourself and try not to stop until you've run the full might be a challenge but it will get you into shape better and faster than anything else...

George asks…

Do you think there is a potential for reimbursement?

I enrolled for a yearlong contract in a gym, mind you it's a local gym compared to Retro, or Planet Fitness. Now, with this yearlong sign up I was supposed to receive a free workout routine, which I still haven't received. Be that as it may, payments were moving along smoothly, until I lost my job. I couldn't pay for three months. I didn't go to the gym for that time, until I received my unemployment benefits, when I did, I paid what I owed, and then I was asked to pay the remainder of the balance in full which was $120.75. I did not have the money and they told me to write out a post-check, (people told me that was a mistake, I get that NOW!) So I did I wrote out the check for 120.75 for the 17th but gave it to him around the 12th or so. Then I get a statement from my bank on the 16th stating that the check had bounced, costing me $35.50. At this point I go to the gym and tell him the check had bounced how would it not bounce there was no money in the first place. So I put in the 35 dollars that was taken by the bank, and put it towards the 120.75 that I had paid in cash. So a little time goes on and then he pulls me over to the side and shows me a statement from his bank he said I owed him $10 for the bounced check. So after a few days of back and forth I get a statement from the bank that cost me $10 to prove to him that it was not my fault. I showed him the statement and he said he wants the photocopy of the check. I'm enraged now because the statement showed the check number, date, the amount of the check, and the date that they withdrew the return fee. Still that was not enough, now he told me I can't work out until I have either 10 dollars to give him or the photocopy. When I even begin to talk about reimbursement for my 35 dollars he said "that ain't my problem that's your account." See where this is going I have to pay him for his mistake but he can't consider that his mistake had more of an implication on me than it did on him. I need help... Anything???

lisa answers:

Your mistake was issuing a check you couldn't cover. No reimbursement.

    | Fitness Workout Programs. I actually do have a couple
    of questions for you if you tend not to mind. Is it only me
    or does it look like a few of these responses appear like they are coming from brain dead people?
    :-P And, if you are writing at additional sites, I would like to follow you.
    Would you make a list of all of all your social
