Movement – Quality range of motion through each joint and control of that range through muscular contraction and relaxation.
Strength – The ability to move load through a full range of motion. All daily activities require some form of strength.
Power – The ability to produce force quickly and efficiently to move fast. From jumping to throwing to preventing a fall, all of these are forms of power output.
Endurance – The ability to perform tasks without losing breath or becoming fatigued. Endurance is specific to the activity. For general purposes, endurance is a big part of the fat loss equation.
The Answer to Your Running Woes
The fat loss path has been set and nutrition has improved, strength training has started, and lifestyle has been set yet the progress needs to be quicker. What’s the answer? METCON. Metabolic conditioning is a form of endurance training that involves intervals instead of steady state, long-duration activities. Intervals use alternating periods of work and rest, causing the heart rate to jump between periods of high and low. The intensity of these types of workouts is much higher than that of continuous training however the rest periods give an individual time to recover. This type of training has been shown in research to be highly effective in fat loss as well as endurance improvements. METCON also incorporates movement training into the mix, creating a more well-rounded body. Full range movements such as squatting, rowing, pressing, pulling, as well as more “functional” movements like shuffling, crawling, and skipping create better movement at the joints and better balance across the body.
METCON classes are that missing piece to the fitness journey. While running may work for a while, the body will adapt and pain may set in. With METCON, the movements and sessions are constantly changing preventing staleness and improving results. The group setting also encourages people to push harder and have more fun. Each member is like a teammate cheering the others on to reach their goals.
Fulfill each piece of the fitness puzzle and results will be guaranteed physically, mentally, and aesthetically.
