Fitness Resolution 2010
Ok everyone it’s 2010 and you’ve decided to sort yourself out! Get fit, lose the extra weight, bust the thighs, move the mass, trim the tummy…….So, GREAT decision!
What’s the next step?
You don’t want to leave anything to chance, you want all the hard work to be valuable and worthwhile and work that brings about RESULTS! Here at UFIT we truly understand that RESULTS is the name of the game. Don’t take chances with your hard-earned cash, come work with us and see the difference!
Personal Training – It starts with the Personal Assessment (medical history, goals, functional assessment). And continues with Functional Training by qualified Trainers. Our philosophy is simple – “Train smart, Train productively, Train with a plan, Train regularly, Train your eating habits”
Train Smart – This is common-sense training. We make no excuses, we use science-based training techniques, every session, period. We don’t want to waste your time or your money. We want to build trust and we want to build a relationship. Our Trainer’s are resources, tap into our knowledge and be a fitter, stronger and leaner person for it!
Train Productively – We take every step of the training principles we live by seriously. The warm-up is crucial. Fully activating mind and muscle so that every fibre, every sinew of tissue is ready and communicating with the brain via the central nervous system is absolutely critical for a workout that is both maximising muscle/core/joint recruitment AND ensuring a safe workout!
Train with a Plan! – Every Trainer has a plan for their client right? Well yes they usually do but is it YOUR plan, or THEIR plan? Did the Trainer explain what the plan was and how you would undertake the plan together? I have blogged previously about Trainer’s that tell clients they have a personalised plan and don’t undertake a Personal Assessment https://ufitsingapore.wordpress.com/2009/12/ Ensuring you keep your Trainer accountable is very important for the Trainer AND you! Having a personalised plan ensures a program that meets all your goals, the ones you have identified and the ones your Trainer has identified! The ones you agree upon!
Train Regularly– This doesn’t mean spend your bonus and more on PT sessions! You can of course! but it makes more sense to work some with your Trainer and keeping to your plan train some on your own or with a training partner! Getting into good habits regularly, forcing change on your body, feeling the great vibes an excellent training session provides and watching yourself as you morph into the best shape of your life are all symptoms of a regular training program. So go ask your Trainer how to best work a schedule that gives you the best of both worlds!
Train your eating Habits – I have to tell you that this is easily the hardest thing people find doing. I also have to tell you these days I find it the easiest! How? Well there are some secrets that we share with members and clients at UFIT but the reality is this. As human beings we eat too many calories, we eat the wrong calories and we drink way too much alternatives to what we should be drinking most of (yep, water). I gotta say again, this is easy stuff for us, let us show you how!!
UFIT Outdoor Bootcamp – This is the training program that a lot of people have been talking about. Our group is growing out of control and we are adding 3/4 more sessions in 2010 as a result! It’s awesome and we’re loving it and we know everyone that joins is as well. Our Bootcamp IS different, seriously! We use flexbands for strength work, we skip, run stairs, jump up onto walls, do balance work, always work the core! It IS tough but we have 3 levels so newbies don’t despair, we want you to join and have a great experience and then grow into the next level (blue!) We want you guys and girls to be safe and get a maximal experience at UFIT so we encourage rolling prior to UFIT sessions (rolling is aka self myofascial release and is a component of a functional warmup along with static stretching, joint mobilisation, core and muscle activation). Every Saturday morning prior to our 8am session we roll for 30 mins, come check out what it’s all about! So really UFIT is a truly functional training experience that meets the needs of many including sports-people, people wanting weight-loss, wanting tone, wanting more strength and greater core stability. It actually makes a lot of sense because functionality provides the working body with a lot of the challenges required by humans to meet a lot of goals. An overweight individual wishing to play sport comes to UFIT and begins to lose weight, starts to tone and get stronger, the core is being training all the time (functionality) and so once we get into the speed/power work at UFIT, sports conditioning becomes a no-brainer (this is because sports-conditioning is really quite straight-forward if you understand energy systems and energy development which of course we do here at UFIT). I am not suggesting that a standard UFIT session will meet the conditioning requirements of every sport but I am saying by doing UFIT you will start to realise what you need to be doing to meet the demands of your sport. And we are here to offer assistance as you go.
So there you have it. UFIT Personal Training and UFIT Outdoor Bootcamp sessions provide affordable, goal-orientated, functional training for a wide variety of needs. Talk to us and find out how we can get you on target in 2010 to meet your goals!
