คำอธิบาย

In case you wondered what "Cross-Fit" and "Metabolic" work outs actually mean, and what sort of workout Leigh offers at Pushing Limitz - here is a quick overview. Cross-Fit I guess is a handy catch-all phrase, but normally covers work-outs that combine aerobic exercises with more anaerobic strength exercises (hence the "cross"). Sessions at Pushing Limitz are nothing like a normal gym session where people trudge on a treadmill for hours on end before sitting on a machine for a few reps. At Pushing Limitz, the sessions are 45 minutes, but actual time exercising is typically only 25 minutes to 30 minutes. The objective is to push yourself as hard as you can in that shorter time. Every session is carried out with Leigh the trainer, and every session is different, with different exercises, different objectives for different muscle groups. Some sessions involve games, others are tabatas or circuits or count downs - the idea is to keep it interesting and varied while being effective. Monday/Tuesday is a metabolic mixed aerobic/strength session. Metabolic means there is little or no rest between exercises so as to maximize calorie burn and increase metabolic rate during and after the workout. These sessions typically involve at least one or two strength exercises, often using dumbbells and a number of more aerobic exercises such as burpees, sprints and core exercises such as variations on sit-ups, planks etc. Wednesday/Thursdays are for toning muscles through supervised strength sessions by doing exercises using the weights bench as well as other strength exercises. Different muscle groups are targeted each week. Friday/Saturday are metabolic aerobic sessions, with more aerobic exercises, usually using lighter weights than Monday/Tuesday, but more reps There is no need for you to do each type of session, but many regulars do usually aim to do three or four sessions per week, one of each type of workout. Many regulars though do only two or even one session per week, and some only focus on one specific type of workout such as the strength workouts on Wed/Thu which are difficult to do at other gyms. For those coming along for the first time Leigh will usually carry out an initial assessment of your level of fitness through a Trial Workout - which is a simplified workout designed for all levels of fitness and experience.
