Club Fit’s HP 30 The Fast, Focused, & Effective WorkOut!

June 5, 2012 by admin

This week at Club Fit Jefferson Valley we launched HP 30, a new high intensity workout that lasts 30 minutes. From the moment you start to the very end of the 30 minutes you’re engaged physically and mentally through instruction and focused physical challenges that accelerate the overall conditioning process.

The tempo is very similar to what you would experience at any elite level of sports during team and individual practices. Top level coaches carefully plan out their practices to eliminate any extended periods of downtime, by moving from one drill to the next through a designed flow that compliments an overall training objective. For example, HP 30 classes are designed to focus on agility, coordination, & strength with a byproduct benefit of improved balance and stamina. Therefore a typical class will focus on many different types of multi-directional movements, paired with added hand/eye challenges and dynamic strength training. This prepares you for not only any type of athletic endeavor you may choose, it’s also an excellent way to get into top condition.

You may read or hear that high intensity training is the new rage. When in fact it has always existed and been used by athletes to get optimum performance results. Interval training has existed for years in the sports of running, swimming, biking, and overall athletic conditioning. But unlike most workouts on the market today each workout is more effective if it’s designed with a purpose. HP 30’s goal is to improve your movement skills, coordination, and to get fast and effective results while saving you time.

When Do You Workout Each Day? Does It Matter?

May 30, 2012 by admin

Personally I’ve always found that working out first thing in the morning works best. Though tough some days to do when I’m feeling sluggish or tired, exercise can provide me with a boost of energy to get the work day started on a positive track. Workouts that I put off to later in the day often never happen. It becomes less of a priority as the volume of work and personal responsibilities mount up throughout the day. But that’s my personal preference. Many find working out after work a stress reliever. So it’s all matter of personal preference, unless you have specific goals in mind.

Outside Magazine explains that you can get different results depending upon the time you choose to workout (see link below). If you’re goal is to lose weight then first thing in the morning is more apt to burn additional calories. But if your goal is to perform well on the tennis court, you’re better off playing towards the end of your day, 4-8 pm. This is the time the human body performs at its best.
