Small Group Personal Training

(SMALL GROUP CLASS TYPES: Total Body, Lower Body, Upper Body, Cardio Fitness, Strength, Abs/Core, Functional Stretching/Flexibility)

1. More personal attention – While Group Exercise offers many benefits, the instructors are not always able to see and correct each individual class member in large Groups so our avgerage class is 5 people with a cap at 10.
2. More economical – Personal Training provides the most personal attention and greatest opportunity to succeed. Some people, however, may find that Small Group Training fits into their budget better and still gives them the attention they need.
3. Variety – By working with a knowledgeable fitness professional, your workouts will change/evolve as you progress, preventing hitting a plateau and boredom.
4. Camaraderie – Let’s face it, workouts love company. Sharing the workout enhances the experience for participants.
5. Motivation – Having someone exercising right beside you can push you a little harder than you might do on your own.
6. Support – Both the Trainer and other participants are there to help you get through the challenges of the workout and the obstacles in life.
7. Greater focus – There’s no time to let your mind wander with a Trainer keeping tight programming and watching your every move.
8. Fun – Yes, fun. The right exercise program done with friends can definitely be fun.
9. Adherence – Research shows that members that are involved in programs are more likely stick with it. With all of the previously listed benefits, how could you not want to keep coming back?
10. Results – When you stick with a well-constructed program, you will get the results.

HIIT Cardio

Our HIIT Cardio class is a GREAT way to workout and maximize the time you're here. We eliminate our traditional warmup and stretching (although clients can come in and do both before/after) and we get straight to work for 30min of high intensity generally Body Weight cardio based exercises. We're looking to elevate the heart rate to a high level and keep it there for the duration of the class. We want to maximize the Cardiovascular benefit with an emphasis on an ultimate fat burning experience. While this is high intensity it accomodates ALL fitness levels as we have movements for beginners through advanced individulas.

There are a number of great benefits to High Intensity Interval Training besides serious fat burn that include:

Increased Aerobic Capacity – The amount of oxygen your body can use (oxygen uptake) is increased, so your overall aerobic capacity can increase faster than with low intensity endurance exercise3

Increased Lactate Threshold – Your ability to handle increased lactic acid buildup in your muscles increases

Improved Insulin Sensitivity – Your muscles more readily suck in glucose, instead of the glucose going to your fat stores

Anabolic Effect – Some studies show that interval training combined with consuming slightly more calories than you burn creates an anabolic effect, which helps you put on muscle. The opposite occurs with steady state cardio, which for long durations is catabolic. 

Functional Stretching and Flexibility Class (30min)

Our Functional Stretching & Flexibility class will be 30min of integrated stretching techniques using various modalities such as bands, straps, weights and foam rollers to increase range of motion and flexibility in total body programs.  We will be working on muscle extensibility, self myofascial release as well as improved kinetic chain responses. This is a unique program with no connectiosn to Yoga or other flexibility programs.

*Increased circulation  *Flexibility and range of motion *Decreased injuries    *Less joint and muscle pain   *Improved physical performance

Abs/Core development class

Our Abdominal/Core Development class will be 45min of functional, traditional, and comprehensive abdominal/core work. Classes will be focused on improving the strength and development of these areas with an emphasis on the upper and lower abdominals, obliques/intercostals, lower back/lumbar region with the erector spinae.

A FEW BENEFITS FROM THIS CAN BE:

*Increased protection of the lower back    *More developed abdominals      *Improved balance/stability    * Better posture     * Improved sports and exercise performance

 

Youth Fitness Class

Weight control: According to research done in 1991, nearly one-fourth of American children are considered overweight, up 20% from 1981. Increasing physical activity along with reducing caloric intakes has been known as an effective weight-loss strategy, and helps with self-esteem and socialization. Overweight children are at an elevated risk of many health problems, including hypertension, hyperlipidemia, type 2 diabetes, growth hormone dysregulation, and respiratory and orthopedic problems

 

Bone building: Physical activity and exercise increases bone mineral density, lowering the risk of osteoporosis when the child gets older. The skeleton appears to be most responsive to the effects of activity during growth.

 

Cardiovascular protection: Although cardiovascular disease doesn’t appear until adulthood, risk factors can be present much earlier in life. High blood cholesterol levels in children increase the risk of hypertension in adulthood. A substantial amount of research suggests that children who exercise regularly, significantly reduce their blood cholesterol level.

 

Mental health benefits: Exercise has a beneficial effect on the mental health of children. It can reduce anxiety, and depression symptoms, increase self-esteem, improve a child’s self-image, and help them cope with stress better. 

 

Sports Conditioning

The quality of one’s athletic performance depends on each individual being in optimum physical condition. Proper conditioning allows the athlete and team to function at the highest possible level. A well-conditioned athlete is a successful athlete; a well-conditioned team is a successful team. The benefits of conditioning during practice sessions are considered as important or even more important than the contests. Developing a proper appreciation for the benefits of conditioning can carry over into later years and lead to an improved quality of life.  The health benefits derived from a regular exercise program are well documented. Pursuing lifelong habits are important goals to improve or maintain cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength, muscular endurance and flexibility.
