Goals

GOALS:


Weight Loss

Weight loss is accomplished with 80 % diet and 20 % exercise over time. We recommend at least 3 days a week at the gym, with a strong cardio based work out regimen. Walk or run on the treadmill, spin, or try one of our high energy calorie burning group fitness classes! We also recommend the app "My Fitness Pal" which EASILY helps you track your food intake, gives you daily calorie goals, and tracks your calories burned.  Remember "You can't compete with what you eat"! 

 


Strength training

 

Strength training is all about getting stronger through resistance training. Free weights, universal equipment, and Body Pump classes all help to sculpt your body and define your muscles.  Yoga uses body weight to do this as well.  Here is a link that takes you through the basic weight training exercises:

Endurance Training

 Surefire Stamina—Your Action Plan

Try these tips to help bump up endurance a notch. With some smart training and nutrition guidance, that Ironman may totally be within reach!

Rest up. To go long and hard, athletes need fresh muscles, says Greatist Expert John Mandrola: “Go hard on hard days; go easy on easy days; and never string hard days together without adequate rest.” Feeling fresh can help anyone go the distance.

Eat right. When it comes to exercise nutrition, carbs are key, since the body uses glycogen for fuel when the goin’ gets tough . Once glycogen runs out, the body turns to energy from other sources, and begins to burn fat. For extended cardio sessions, consume 30-60 grams of carbs every hour, depending on body weight. Studies have also found a mix of carbs and protein can enhance endurance performance and reduce muscle damage—win! . That said, keep in mind that the best mix of carbohydrates, fat and protein varies considerably amongst athletes, says Mandrola. 


General Health

 General health is about taking something from all the goals above and having a plan to keep yourself healthy and active. So maybe you're not training for a race, or trying to lose weight, but you're here at Summit because you want to stay that way. Mix it up. Take some classes. Try yoga or Pilates. Learn how to spin,  or to weight train. Switching up your exercises will help target new muscle groups that you everyday routine may not.
