There are exercise programs that benefit those who are fit more than those who are new to exercise, and vice versa. This is one reason why group exercise classes are certainly beneficial, but may not maximize time at the gym for everyone. Personal training is customized based on the physical abilities and specific health needs of each individual. We are all different even though our bodies are essentially built the same way. Personal training programs can- and should be- customized based on the specific fitness goals, needs, and experience of each participant. Trainers take into account current fitness levels and specific needs so that faster and better fitness results are achieved. Women more often than not want to lose weight and get tone but often do not want to build bulky muscle. Additionally, women and men have different health demands that can also be addressed through exercise. Certified trainers can create exercise programs that can maximize health, wellness and time in the gym. People who want to lose weight and get fit should understand that exercise and a healthy diet need to be a lifestyle and regularly put into practice. In order to get the most out of your exercise time, personal training can help you reap the benefits faster. To find out more about personal training, contact Fit Factory in Kingston, MA.

Many runners are happy running their regular routes at a relaxed “feel-good pace.” This boosts your overall fitness and gives you a break from your everyday stress. But it is precisely this monotony in your training that can often lead to boredom and waning motivation. A steady, even pace makes your running heavy-footed and undynamic. Your performance will not improve, and your running will be reduced to just plodding along. The following five tips can can add a lot of variety to your training. This is exactly what you need to enhance your performance and make your next run more fun and more dynamic. 1. Accelerations/Decelerations Break up the monotony of your running by working short sprints into your endurance training on a regular basis. “That keeps your running form dynamic and makes you fast. You won’t make performance gains if you always run at the same speed. Your body needs a speed stimulus to be able to actually run faster the next time. Tip: You can work this short speedwork into one of your long-distance runs to vary the pace, or you can finish a run with a speed drill like this. 2. Hill sprints Running is not just about endurance training: Your body also requires strength. Do hill sprints after your long-distance runs. This turns your regular run into a complete cardio and strength workout and helps you run with a more powerful stride. 3. Fartlek It is extremely important when running to be flexible in terms of speed, step frequency and power. Only in this way can you adjust to the different surfaces without overtaxing your body. Play with your pace during your distance runs. From the Swedish word for “speed-play,” a “fartlek” basically involves varying your pace without a specific plan or goal. The intervals and intensity depend on the terrain, and you can mix and mash them as you like during your workout. The activity includes all intensities from slow recovery jogs to high-intensity sprints. 4. Trail running Take advantage of the benefits of changing surfaces. Every surface has its own unique challenges. Your body must learn to react to them by unconsciously adapting your stride, foot strike and step frequency. This method is guaranteed to spice up your running training and nip boredom in the bud! 5. Crescendo run A crescendo run is a training exercise involving a systematic increase in intensity. This method is a very effective option for improving your running performance. Plus, a crescendo run is an awesome fat burner!

As you get older and busier, it gets harder and harder to lose weight and to stay active and motivated. But, for both your mind and body, it is very important to get in your daily exercise and keep the weight off. Here are some tips for weight loss: * Use the scale once a week, not once a day, and address weight gain when it starts by working out or adjusting food intake. * Keep a food journal. Writing down the food that you eat will make controlling your eating habits easier. * Continue to exercise. If it gets too cold for activities outdoors, join a gym. The camaraderie and the scope of exercise class options can help keep you motivated. When you are exercising with others, and you are having fun in group ex classes, it is easier to exercise. * Make time to relax. Life can be stressful, and stress can lead to weight gain. * Enjoy active family activities. Instead of watching a movie, try going for a walk or bike ride, go for a family swim or play a family volleyball game. These tips can help you stay healthy and active. The key to maintaining healthy weight is in sticking with a healthy lifestyle. Just because you are busy, a healthy lifestyle should be maintained.

Interval training is growing in popularity and is considered to be one of the most effective training methods. Particularly in competitive sports, interval training is used to enhance physical performance. But it also offers many benefits for recreational runners and beginners. The main thing is to choose the right intervals. In today’s blog post, we show you what the best intervals for you are and why you should definitely include interval training in your routine. What are interval runs? Interval training is a type of training in which short periods of high-intensity work alternate with less-intense recovery periods. By adjusting the individual intervals, you can easily control the difficulty of the session. There are two ways to do this: by the duration or intensity of the work and recovery periods, and by the total number of intervals. When you change one of these parameters, you also change the stress on your body. Weight loss through interval training The high intensity of the work periods increases the training stimulus experienced by your muscles. In this way, you achieve a much greater training effect in the same amount of time as a moderate distance run. One of the biggest advantages is that you burn tons of calories in a relatively short time. Your muscles require a lot of energy after the intense workout for the recovery and regeneration process. Due to the “afterburn effect,” your metabolism remains elevated after your workout and you continue to burn additional calories. What should your run intervals look like? Interval training is usually considered to be a high-intensity and extremely strenuous training method. That is why it is often mistakenly assumed that interval runs are only for advanced runners. But aerobic intervals, as they are called, offer beginning runners an excellent opportunity to benefit from the many positive effects of an interval training session. The right way to do intervals: Warm-up: Because the work period of the intervals puts a lot of strain on your muscles you have to warm up properly. A moderate 10-15 minute run is enough to warm up your body and prevent injuries. You should choose a pace where you can carry on a conversation without difficulty. Intervals: The work period lasts 15 seconds. You should run at a submaximal sprint (90% of your maximal sprint) or, in other words, not quite full speed. This is followed by a recovery period consisting of 45 seconds of slow walking. The whole session lasts 15 minutes, meaning you run 15 intervals in total. Cool-down: After the last interval, you should walk slowly for ten minutes. It is important that you don’t overdo it when running intervals. Make sure to rest for one or two days after the session before doing your next workout. At the start, running intervals once a week is enough. Once you get used to it you can start doing 20-second work periods and 40-second recovery periods. For more weight loss tips, contact Fit Factory. Runtastic
