Your program template for a pinnacle year in 2012

Research says strength training should be the cornerstone of your program because functional muscle is the MOST important aspect to body fat metabolism, disease prevention, a useful and yes a good looking body!

Most people will do extremely well if they get 3-6 hours of dedicated exercise per week (1.5%-3% of your entire week btw) and this is enough to make some serious positive impact to your health….. if training (and eating) is done the right way.

All programs should have  one and absolutely no more than four  resistance training sessions per week (2-3 is very good). Next you should have 1-2 intensive cardio sessions (quality is way better than quantity with this) and the last element is perhaps longer sessions of lower intensity – think fun stuff that is not exhaustive but ‘active’.

What should the length of time of your training sessions be? The latest research says 30-45 minutes is plenty. Good news! You don’t have to do hours upon hours to get fantastic results. You just have to know what to do and when.

A very important aspect to  consider is the universal principle of cycled training, meaning that you can’t have progress without recovery. Make sure there is some down time and transition between programs throughout the year. You will need this mentally just as much as physically.

We can coordinate all this in 2012 for our clients. I am looking at helping a lot of people achieve amazing transformations next year and we will have various  structured programs to achieve this. If you are already doing the job but just need a location for a very reasonable cost look out gym & swim deals. If you like working out with people and a group dynamic check out our new outdoor group training program and if you need a lot of help then you need our elite PT programs.

All our training will have goal setting as priority number one, nutrition as priority number two, and strength training and intensive cardio sessions as  priority 3 and 4 respectively. You put all this together and you get a vastly accelerated result.

2012 will be a good year!

Use it or lose it…..

Maybe some of us have kind of dabbled in health and fitness. You know ‘The Amazing Watermelon Diet of the Stars’ in the weekly mag, or ‘Pilates is the answer to that flat belly you’ve always dreamt of’ on the prime time ‘health show’ or perhaps it was ‘Go hard or go home’ flyer of the ubiquitous 6 week challenge at the local gym that hooked you in, albeit until it got too hard or just finished.

Your Lifestyle Has Consequences

Have you ever heard the saying, ‘that you become what you think about all day long’? The same also applies to exercise, ‘you become what you do or don’t do on a regular basis’. Hence the headline today. The trick with this ‘consistent exercise gig’ we all know we need is to find your motivation. If you can achieve that, you will no longer need ‘will power’, as the reason for doing it drives the action on auto pilot.
