Concentration Curls: This exercise focuses on the biceps. Start by sitting on a bench with your knees apart and holding a single dumbbell in one hand. Now rest the back of your upper arm that's holding the dumbbell on the inside of your thigh. Begin by curling the weight up toward your opposite pectoral muscles while keeping the upper arm in contact with your inner thigh (no swinging the weight). To achieve a good contraction make sure to rotate the dumbbell so that your pinky finger is higher than your thumb at the top of the movement. Hold this position for one count. Exhale through this part of the movement. Now slowly lower the weight to the starting position as you inhale. Do not let the dumbbell come in contact with the floor. Repeat for several repetitions and then switch to the opposite arm and attempt to perform the same number of repetitions. If you need assistance with this exercise technique please speak with one of our certified personal trainers.

Move to Improve! Exercise has tons of benefits and it doesn't take months to see results. Heck, even 5 minutes of moderate exercise can enhance your mood. We suggest taking a modest approach to beginning an exercise program. You could start by walking on our treadmills and progress moderately until your ready to increase the speed to a brisk walk or even ramp up the elevation for an uphill climb. Your body will adapt quickly and when you're ready to progress you'll feel it. You may even want to do one set of light strength training exercises (one for each muscle group) and soon that will lead to multiple sets and then varying strength training exercises for each muscle groups. Need help? That's what we're here for! If you haven't started an exercise program in 2018 and you're ready to make a change - we invite you to stop in today for a workout or a tour. We'll answer all your questions - No Obligation!

There are some good reasons to 'Rock Out' while you 'Work Out'...

1) Music can distract you from the exertion of exercising & distraction can benefit athletic performance by as much as 15%. 2) You can work harder with faster music as opposed to slower music. 3) Music helps to put you in the zone and boost motivation. 4) The beat of music helps you to keep a consistent pace. 5) Music elevates your mood and helps you stay more self-aware (hey, it's your workout anyway).

Front Squat. Place a barbell on a squat rack at about chest height. Position your body so the barbell is touching the front of your shoulders. Cross your arms and place both hands on top of the barbell with your upper arms parallel to floor. Your hands and front shoulders should both be touching the bar. Lift the weight off the rack while balancing the weight on your front shoulders. Being to squat down by pushing your hips back and bending at the knees. Lower your hips until your thighs are just past parallel. Now begin to extend your knees and hips until your legs are straight. Inhale as you lower your body and exhale as to raise your body. Repeat movement for additional repetitions. If you need help with this exercise please speak to one of our certified personal trainers.

The Stability Ball isn’t just for crunches! Try incorporating the stability ball into your exercise routine to improve balance and engaged the core. Because the stability ball is round and somewhat unstable it’s a great tool for improving balance and engaging the core. Simply replacing a rigid bench with a stability ball will add additional exercise components to many of the exercises you already perform. If you need advice on exercises that incorporate the stability ball please speak with one of our certified personal trainers on your next visit to the fitness center.

Lighten Up & Still Build Muscle: You can lift light and still build big muscles, says new research from the Journal of Applied Physiology. Guys who did three sets of knee extensions with light weights three times a week increased their muscle volume as much as guys doing the same exercises with heavy weights. The key: Both groups worked out until failure, meaning they couldn’t lift the weight again at the end of each session.
