Change your workout to change your body

Have you ever wondered if those minutes you spend in the gym are burning fat or just time? Unfortunately if you are like 80% of gym-goers, time is the primary thing you’re burning.

I don’t want that to be you.

Here are the top 3 outdated, time-burning exercise techniques to NOT DO:

1) Slow and Steady Cardio Sessions: Walk into most gyms and you’ll see every single piece of cardio equipment full of people in a slow, steady state of cardio. Instead maximize calorie burn with HIIT (high intensity interval training): the idea of utilizing your entire body with different movements and intensity to accelerate fat burn. Not only will you burn calories while you exercise, but long after you’re done.

2) Weight Machine Wandering: You’ve seen this character: he wanders among the weight machines, plops down on an open one and cranks out a set (without adjusting the weight or seat). Make the most use of your time in the gym by contacting one of our personal trainers to discuss a plan of action towards your goals. This way the next time you are in the gym you get the most use of your time with an effective results-driven workout.

3) Chronic Low Intensity: When you simply go through the motions during your workout, that’s classic low-intensity. You’re not pushing yourself and you’re also not burning any fat. If you find yourself just-going-through-the-motions then quickly pick up the pace. Intense exercise= intense after-burn.

So what’s the secret to burning fat? It’s a challenging routine that incorporates strength-training, intervals of intense cardio and is done with intensity. We are here to provide you with the most cutting-edge workouts that deliver results while burning fat. Contact us today and let’s get moving towards your goals.
