Do you love Group Fitness, but you’re not getting results?
Each week you’re hitting a group fitness class – dance, doing Pump or HIIT, and recovering with some yoga or pilates. You feel full of energy, and love the vibe and community of your regular instructor and classmates. However, when you look in the mirror, you might not see all your hard work reflected back at you.
I’ll be honest, you’re probably fitter than you’ve ever been before. Doing 2-4 classes a week is infinitely better than doing nothing at all. You’re getting a sweat on, improving your cardiovascular health, and most importantly you’re doing it in a really fun and enjoyable way.
When you’re working out at a high intensity for 30, 45 or 60 minutes, your body adapts to the stimulus that you give it. This is why cardio style classes get easier over time, and you need to find ways to push and challenge the body more. If you’re lifting weights for 45 minutes in a pump class your muscles are adapting for endurance and efficiency, rather than strength and power.
Wait, there’s also another 10, 20, maybe even 30+ other people in the studio trying to get the same results. There is no way the instructor is able to get to you and adjust your technique so you’re training safely and correctly.
What you might need to do is train a little bit differently. Apply different stress and stimulus to the body, and you will see different results. The vast majority of people just want to “tone up” when they join the gym. What does this even mean? Well, tone up = lean muscle mass + fat loss. What’s the best way to build lean muscle mass?
There is no substitute for lifting heavy stuff – provided you can do it safely and correctly. This is why many people go see a Personal Trainer for 1 on 1 sessions. But you love the community of group fitness, which is why you might love semi-private training. Get the benefits of 1 on 1 coaching, plus the community and support you really enjoy.
So now you’ve got an awesome training environment, then what? Well, you’ll have to look at your habits and routines, lifestyle, nutrition, stress management, mindset, support structure, accountability, and motivation, along with a myriad of other things! Luckily we can also coach and support you as you tackle what needs to tweak, adjust, or change completely.
