What's new

We're raising the bar

Strength lies at the core of fitness. Once you're stronger, you can go faster, for longer and with far less likelihood of injury. Increased strength means increased muscular endurance, which in turn means increased fitness. Now's your time to toughen up, not just when it comes to body strength but in terms of focus and mindset too. You got this.

Girls who lift

Strength training is having a moment right now, particularly when it comes to women. Barely a day goes by without a headline about women and weights (interesting article in the Times here). Of course this is not news to us, we've been hailing the benefits of lifting for a long while. Our Personal Training clients all know their way around the squat rack, our TRX sessions are heavily focused on using own body weight for resistance, or for more of a challenge there's TRX/Strength which combines weights. Our ever popular HiPer Zone heart rate circuits are specifically focused on strength and conditioning so to say we're big on strength is an understatement.

Our three month countdown

Lifting_weights_HEADER_4.jpg

The 3 month guide:

This is a decent amount of time to get ready for summer, allowing you to layer your new habits and seamlessly phase them in.
 
Start by committing to a full body strength training program at least 3 times a week to burn calories during, and up to 48 hours after, your workout. We suggest Personal Training, HiPer Zone Power or/and TRX Strength classes. Prioritise your powerhouse muscles (glutes, quads and hamstrings). These are some of the biggest muscle groups in your body and working them regularly is one of the best ways to burn calories.
 
Add in 1 or 2 TRX Circuit or HiPer Zone Speed classes a week after 2-3 weeks.
 
Add in a Reformer Pilates Chair or Yoga class once a week after 3-4 weeks.
 
Track your food and water intake (the app - My Fitness Pal - is good for this). Note where most of your calories are coming from and adjust any imbalances. Cut down on treats.
 

The 2 month guide:

Similar to the 3 month guide above but you're going to have to introduce your layers faster, starting with one week of strength training Personal Training, HiPer Zone Power or/and TRX Strength classes, 3 times a week before introducing a TRX Circuit, HiPer Zone Speed and a Reformer Pilates Chair session.

Track your food, limit your treats and remember you only have 8 weeks to prep your body.

The 1 month guide:

Commit to an intense workout routine for the one month you have to maximise your results. That means attempting to workout 5-6 times a week, to include 2 or 3 strength training sessions (Personal Training, HiPer Zone Power, TRX Strength classes) one TRX Circuit or HiPer Zone Speed class and one Reformer Pilates Chair or yoga session.
 
Reduce your alcohol intake. Increase your daily intake of natural diuretics (try adding cucumber or lemon to water). Cut back on processed, starchy carbohydrates such as breads, pastas, bagels, cookies, and crackers.
 
Move continuously, use the pedometer on your phone or fitness tracker and set your minimum to 10,000 steps a day on top of your workout session.
