Cross-training is not only a pillar of the Longevity method, it is a dynamic approach to promoting overall health on both a mental and physical level. Integrating different types of training, like yoga with strength/resistance training, works to address the whole self - mind, body, and spirit. When we combine two already-effective forms of fitness, we also combine each of their benefits to create an efficient synergy.
The difference between daily movement and intentional movement is a plan. There are several strength training methods out there, each with its own purpose and science behind it. We name 7 training styles and their benefits; learn which ones are most suited for you and your fitness goals.
Strength, mobility and coordination are key players when it comes to moving efficiently and rendering results. In terms of fitness, strength is defined as 'the ability to produce internal tension to overcome an external load.' It is a crucial aspect of training and often the first area of focus. Anna demonstrates 12 fundamental exercises that can be adapted for nearly any strength training program. We include tips for your best form, along with progressions and variations to help you reach (and crush) your strength goals.
Combining our Stair Climb machine with a series of strength and mobility exercises, we created a workout that burns a minimum of 360 calories. That could equate to three glasses of wine, a grande caramel latte, or even a bowl of pasta bolognese with a slice of bread.
2021 JUMPSTART TRAINING SCHEDULE
Breathing is the foundation of our existence and the guiding principle of any exercise. While breathing occurs innately without any conscious thought, breathing with mindfulness and purpose can improve aerobic capacity, align the body, facilitate movement and change our overall mood and state of mind. Get the most out of your next workout by beginning with any or all of these three breathing exercises.
Ever wonder what your trainer’s week of workouts includes, and how they make the time to train? Take a walk, run or squat in the shoes of 8 Longevity trainers as they share their latest training regimen.
Admit it, our body feels so good after a workout. Whether it be Pilates or Yoga, a brisk walk or long run, a strength training session or a Sweat Therapy class, our body is meant to move. Be good to it and it will return the gratitude with a stronger heart, clearer mind, and fitter physique. The longer you stick with exercise, the more habitual it becomes. When you miss a day, you develop a craving for it, which helps you jump right back in the following day- and the next.
The number one way to reach your goal is to keep on moving. Never give up, ever.
We go to bed with the intention of waking up feeling alive and rejuvenated, only to spend the rest of the day counting down the hours until we can soundly sleep again. We’ve all been there. But, did you know that exercise can actually help you sleep better and improve your mental alertness the next day?
