New Equipment for the Gym in 2015

posted by Fitness Focus    |   February 26, 2015 18:32

Members' workout requirements are always changing, which means we need to add new equipment to the gym. A must-have was a third Squat Rack, the Atlantis Half Rack. More people are starting to incorporate functional (and fundamental) exercises like deadlifts, lunges and squats into their training which necessitated us to add another Squat Rack into the weight room. In the past people would stay clear of exercises like squats because were under the impression they were only beneficial in a competition setting with the sole purpose of lifting a maximum amount of weight.  Now people are starting to realize that squats are the perfect exercise for both shaping the legs and glutes while complimenting a variety of other body parts. It's great to see people are now challenging themselves with these types of exercises.

 The leg platform is a very diverse piece of equipment.  It looks very simple as it's just an adjustable step; but it would take more than your 2 hands to count the amount of exercises you can do with it. Step ups, lunges, reverse lunges, box jumps, box squats, stiff-leg deadlifts, incline push-ups, and the list goes on.  Get creative with the leg platform, it's durable and build for a serious workout.

Most machines work front-to-back. The Helix turns tradition on its side— literally. With lateral (or side-to-side) movement, you use more muscles, which means you burn more fat than during a traditional workout– in the same amount of time.  Plus Helix’s patented motion tones your butt, core and inner/outer thighs better than old-fashioned cardio machines.

Inactivity 'kills more than obesity'

posted by Fitness Focus    |   January 19, 2015 23:25

A lack of exercise could be killing twice as many people as obesity in Europe, a 12-year study of more than 300,000 people suggests.

University of Cambridge researchers said about 676,000 deaths each year were down to inactivity, compared with 337,000 from carrying too much weight.

They concluded that getting everyone to do at least 20 minutes of brisk walking a day would have substantial benefits.

Experts said exercise was beneficial for people of any weight.

Obesity and inactivity often go hand in hand.

However, it is known that thin people have a higher risk of health problems if they are inactive. And obese people who exercise are in better health than those that do not.

The study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, attempted to tease out the relative dangers of inactivity and obesity.

Obese versus Inactive

Researchers followed 334,161 Europeans for 12 years. They assessed exercise levels and waistlines and recorded every death.

"The greatest risk [of an early death] was in those classed inactive, and that was consistent in normal weight, overweight and obese people," one of the researchers, Prof Ulf Ekelund told BBC News.

He said eliminating inactivity in Europe would cut mortality rates by nearly 7.5%, or 676,000 deaths, but eliminating obesity would cut rates by just 3.6%.

Prof Ekelund added: "But I don't think it's a case of one or the other. We should also strive to reduce obesity, but I do think physical activity needs to be recognised as a very important public health strategy."


Prof Ekelund, who is based in Norway, is into cross country skiing and clocks up at least five hours of vigorous exercise each week.

However, he says all it would need to transform health, is brisk walking.

"I think people need to consider their 24-hour day.

"Twenty minutes of physical activity, equivalent to a brisk walk, should be possible for most people to include on their way to or from work, or on lunch breaks, or in the evening instead of watching TV."

The diseases caused by inactivity and obesity were largely the same, such as cardiovascular disease. However, type 2 diabetes was more common with obesity.

Tackle both

Commenting on the findings, Barbara Dinsdale, from the charity Heart Research UK, said: "This study once again reinforces the importance of being physically active, even when carrying excess weight.

"Changing your lifestyle is all good news for heart health, but physical activity is always easier to achieve and maintain without carrying the extra 'body baggage' of too much weight."

Prof John Ashton, president of the Faculty of Public Health, said changes were needed to make exercise easier.

"We need substantial investment in cycling infrastructure to make our streets safer.

 

"If more people cycled or walked to work or school, it would make a big difference in raising levels of physical activity."

PERSONAL TRAINING IN SASKATOON WITH TEAM WAWRYK PRO TRAINERS

posted by Fitness Focus    |   October 2, 2014 14:55

Ever thought about getting a trainer to because you are a bit lost in the gym?  Or maybe you've changed your fitness goals and need a bit of direction. Whatever the case, here are some great fundamental reasons that a personal training might be right for you.

 

1. A Trainer Provides Expertise through Experience

A good trainer will watch you during your exercises to make sure that you are doing the exercises correct; but an experienced personal trainer can give you great tips and add subtle changes to your workout that make a big difference to your results. For example, when targeting a specific muscle, a simple twist of the wrist at the top of certain exercises can develop that muscle in ways it otherwise wouldn’t.

 

2. A Trainer Provides Accountability

There are other ways to get accountability, like a training partner or a spouse who keeps on you to get to the gym; but a good personal trainer knows that they succeed when you succeed. They have built a program specifically for you, so your victory also becomes their victory; they want to see you succeed.  Whether you have one-on-one sessions with them or do monthly follow-ups, since no one likes failing you want to show them you've made progress.

 

3. A Trainer Gives You Direction

Goal setting is the key to the success of any journey, and sometimes we become conflicted about just where it is we want to go with our personal health and fitness journey. A person may have the urge to get stronger but not necessarily bigger, or increase their endurance but don’t want to sacrifice any muscle. We don’t always know how to start identifying attainable goals, especially when it comes to subject as complicated and diverse as health and fitness. A good personal trainer can help you identify you significant strengths and weaknesses, then help you set attainable goals and objectives that will lead to your eventual success.

 

4. A Trainer Increases Your Intensity

Having a personal trainer will empower you to raise the intensity of your workout, this equates to better results.  A training partner can increase your intensity too, because you’re both there for mutual benefit but it’s the job of the personal trainer to be there, keep your cadence and tempo right where it needs to be.
