Torch The Excess Holiday Calories with Infrared
Here we are again. Another year, and it’s the week after Thanksgiving…the annual battle of the bulge begins.
As a fitness professional, I am convinced from experience that one of the best ways to stay in shape is to schedule a trip, or a vacation that involves a fitness challenge.
Infrared workouts, like those associated with the HOTWORX infrared sauna or infrared heat therapy, have various health benefits, including potential fat-burning effects.
HOTWORX made the decision early on, prior to the opening of its very first studio, that the use of isometrics and HIIT would be the most effective approach to infrared fitness training, and therefore, would be the basis for all of the workouts that would be offered in each of the patented HOTWORX workout saunas.
Workout consistency means more than just showing up to the gym on a regular basis. The consistency of the workouts that you do is just as important. That requires a workout sequence that remains the same with very little variation. I call this the principle of sameness.
When you manage your heart rate appropriately during exercise you can govern the physiological response in a way that gets you to your fitness goals in a fast and efficient manner.
High Intensity Interval Training sessions, AKA HIIT, are fast and can help you burn more fat while getting your cardiovascular system in shape. When HIIT is combined with good nutrition and intermittent fasting, the results can be transformational.
I recently had an encounter with a treadmill. Normally, for me, I will avoid treadmills because I like cardio that is more interesting.
Like any athletic endeavor, fitness is also a game of momentum. In this game it is you versus you though.
When I think about fitness innovation, I am reminded of a quote from what I consider to be the greatest locker room speech of all time to come out of Hollywood.
