Power U is designed for college students and young professionals who are looking to maintain or lower body fat, improve lean muscle mass as well as increasing general cardiovascular fitness level
Functional training utilizes movements performed in life’s daily activities, such as walking, bending, lifting and climbing stairs. Our workouts will emphasize many fundamental movements, such as squatting, pressing, jumping, lunging and pulling, upon which more complex functional movements are built, training your body for everyday life, not events. You’ll notice the benefits in all you do.
Strength training builds muscle, and muscle tension and density give a body a toned look. Strength training elicits hormonal responses that build up skeletal tissue, helping stave off osteoporosis and making carbohydrate processing more efficient. Strength training also burns more calories than cardio alone by causing the body to go into repair mode after exercise, and muscle tissue burns more calories than non-muscle tissue. So building muscle increases your metabolic rate, burning more calories even at rest.
High Intensity Intervals or “all-out” effort intervals that push your heart rate to about 90 percent of its maximum, followed by active recovery, challenge your body more than moderately intense cardiovascular exercise. This type of training is harder on your body, so your body’s recovery requires more energy, increasing your metabolic rate. High intensity interval training has also been proven very effective at increasing cardiovascular health, increasing production of human growth hormone, which encourages your body to build lean muscle mass, and increasing the body’s work capacity. The net effect of HIT: better results in less time.
Total body focus with compound movements, those engaging two or more different joints, fully stimulates entire muscle groups and achieves extra muscle activity, which means your body burns more calories.
Highly varied exercises prevent fitness plateaus. Because of the human body’s tremendous ability to adapt, the more fit we become, the better able our bodies are to handle the same level of exercise. Thus, our bodies burn fewer calories, our metabolism decreases and our progress stalls over time. By delivering a different program each day, featuring highly varied exercises and equipment, you will continuously progress and achieve new personal bests.
The Power Adult program is designed for every athlete. It is a fully functional training program that combines the elements of competition and group support ensuring optimal results driving athletes to work harder, not only for themselves, but for each other. Power Adult aims to improve body fat levels, muscular strength, core strength, endurance, flexibility, agility, power, explosiveness, stability, competitive drive and mental conditioning. What makes this program so effective for all athletes is that it is measurable and scalable for all levels. Throughout this training program the focus is on training the whole athlete. Training starts with a dynamic warm-up followed by heart rate driven group circuits. Classes are periodized and structured to ensure that athletes do not plateau. Within each block and circuit athletes will challenge their strength, endurance, flexibility, agility, visual acuity, reactivity, power, explosiveness, core strength, stability, competitive drive and mental conditioning.
