Types of Training
Strength and Power
Training for gains in strength and power require progressive overloading in order to produce muscular and soft tissue adaptations. Our professionals will work closely to develop a plan and TRACK loading over time to ensure optimal stimulus for changes in your body. We will tune training to help you meet your goals. If fitness is your overall goal, we can help to design a whole body workout to help obtain more lean body mass.
- Increased muscle mass
- Increased bone mineral density and soft tissue strength and resiliency
- Reduced risk of injury with sports that require, cutting, planting, and jumping
Endurance or aerobic training can also be tuned to each individuals goals. Based on goals, training will be developed to target your type 1 muscle fibers with lower intensity, steady state exercise. There are many ways to achieve your goals with aerobic training and are no limited to biking and running.
- Burning more fat with your workouts
- Increasing your body’s ability to use oxygen
- Allowing muscle fibers to be better able to handle aerobic demands
- Improved cardiovascular and pulmonary function
Interval training is resistance training with decreased rest breaks. This allows your heart rate and pulmonary function to stay elevated throughout the training session. Interval training allows you to train both your strength and power as well as your aerobic (endurance) systems at the same time. This can be especially helpful for people who participate in sports like basketball, soccer, or hockey that require a combination of both aerobic and anaerobic systems to be working together.
- Improves both aerobic and anaerobic capacities
- Allows for improvements similar to those in strength training.
