For many people getting in shape or contacting a personal trainer is always a future goal. Getting around to fulfilling that promise through never really happens. How long can you wait to get in shape and burn off fat? Putting off the goal of getting fit shouldn’t wait for some undefined time in the future.
Starting with the Basics
Contacting a fitness professional is a good way to discover the tools needed to get fit and healthy. An weight loss program, like the ones developed by the 2xR Fitness professionals in Lakewood, developed from a starting level with an emphasis on overall fitness is the best way to begin changing the lifetime ‘couch potato habits’ and burn off the fat. Those who start out with DVDs, books or just a few classes often find themselves either overwhelmed or quickly bored because these are set at an average level of readiness to perform a workout. High intensity circuit training might sound intimating, but with a qualified personal trainer developing the right routine for you, the goal of fitness is much easier. With circuit training you will use the muscles in your arms, abs, and legs that are never utilized in even the most aggressive cardio classes.
High Intensity Circuit Training is NEVER Boring
An intense workout broken up into circuits keeps you physically moving and mentally alert throughout a session. Moving from stretching to cool down in the fast-paced high intensity circuit both the time and the fat is gone before you know it.
A cat knows what he is doing. From the moment the cat wakes to the second he settles into sleep, he is constantly flexing and stretching his muscles. For a human being this simple habit is much more complicated. Over stretching before a workout can cause soreness and even injuries. Not stretching enough can also result in soreness and certain issues. Even taking a class where an instructor is demonstrating a certain technique or exercise is guesswork because what is a good satisfying move for some can over extend the muscles and ligaments of another. The Lakewood personal trainers at 2xR Fitness assesses the level someone can extend and develops the type of stretches that will work for that individual.
A high intensity workout will include calisthenics and aerobic fitness, elastic resistance, exercise machines, hand-held weights, all worked in combinations. The benefit of this type of workout is the quick fat burning potential. Most stations only last a few seconds so this is one of the few strength building programs in which repetitive injury is infrequent. The biggest benefit of all is developing the cardio-respiratory fitness level which can get you easily through your day, and build you up to the next level of intensity quickly.
Exercises, Equipment and Building Endurance
Taking a class in a room full of other people is not the same as receiving individualized support and training from a personal trainer. While equipment usually has instructions, they don’t tell you exactly how many reps will build muscle or what motion can cause a injury. This is information a Lakewood personal trainer will gain in your first fitness assessment. You will have a better start, and it can mean instantly gaining experience that other’s struggle years to learn right from the beginning.
The first step to truly enjoying a workout is deciding on giving high intensity circuit training a try. A Lakewood personal trainer can get you started on the track that could change the way you stay fit and live your life.
