This program is a great way to just walk into our gym and start training without having to do 5 personal training sessions or joining Life Change. If you’re new to the gym but don’t know where to start, we do highly recommend our Life Change Program as it is designed for beginners and we teach you how to move from the ground up.
Our JF Lite Program is based on a scaled version of our Just Fitness Program which is based on strength and conditioning. Twice a week you’ll spend half of the class working on technique, movement, and proper form on deadlifts, back and front squats, benchpress, and overhead pressing, plus some supplemental movements like kettlebell swings. Doing this will help prepare you for our Just Fitness Program and help you perfect your form.
Want to join our main Just Fitness Program, but you’re not quite there yet? Do you have some experience in the gym, but aren’t entirely familiar with the big lifts or kettlebells, or maybe you just need to work on your technique, then the JF Lite Program is for you.
Our membership is as follows:
Tuesday and Wednesday at 7:30pm
Friday you can attend any of the regularly scheduled Just Fitness Classes at 6am, 12:15, 4:30 or 5:30pm.
Saturday at 10:00am
Strength Training – Strength training can provide significant functional benefits and improvement in overall health and well-being, including increased bone, muscle, tendon and ligament strength and toughness, improved joint function, reduced potential for injury, increased bone density, increased metabolism, increased fitness, improved cardiac function, and improved lipoprotein lipid profiles, including elevated HDL (“good”) cholesterol.
High Intensity – When it comes to calorie burning during exercise, research shows that short, high-intensity interval workouts burn more calories than longer, lower-intensity aerobic workouts. According to the American College of Sports Medicine, not only are more calories burned in short, high intensity exercise, but cardiovascular function improves faster.
Functional training – involves exercises which allow individuals to perform the activities of daily life more easily and without injuries. Functional training involves mainly weight bearing activities targeted at core muscles of the abdomen and lower back.
Studies show that those who follow a vigorous exercise program experience all the benefits of lifestyle physical activity and a moderate exercise program; they also see a greater increase in fitness. Additionally, there is a somewhat greater reduction in chronic disease risk for those who follow a vigorous exercise program.
