Cardio training or traditional functional fitness, which works for me. The answer: F45
SAN ANTONIO, TX/ACCESSWIRE/August 10, 2022/ Five fitness groups, one of F45’s biggest and fastest growing franchises, is making fitness training more accessible to those who think fitness has failed them by changing the way people get in shape. The group’s facilities focus on the new wave of functional training rather than traditional strength or cardio-only training. Five Fitness Group takes a more holistic approach to fitness than its competitors by offering 100% functional fitness training facilities under the F45 brand.
What is traditional cardio and strength training?
Everyone knows all about cardio, you get on the hamster wheel and run, run, run. But, with F45, there’s a way to do cardio and gain strength, tone, and weight loss at the same time. And it’s not boring, say what?
Traditional strength training largely focuses on building one muscle group at a time. For example, you’ve probably heard people talk about “Leg Day.” This is how it works; In a traditional strength training program, you work with a trainer to isolate the areas of the body you want to strengthen and develop a program that allows you to do so in compartmentalized pieces.
These types of workouts are simple to conceptualize because the whole body is broken into pieces for the workout. The only problem with using this technique to get stronger is that it doesn’t translate directly into physical activities other than lifting weights. So after traditional strength training you might find it easier to lift heavy weights, but not everyday activities like getting a bag of groceries out of the car and carrying it inside, on top of a stair. This is because traditional strength training focuses on building individual muscle groups rather than the core. And the truth is, it’s just not sustainable for the most part, and it’s not something you can benefit from in day-to-day life.
What is Functional Training – F45 style?
F45 makes functional training fun! On your first visit, a trainer will familiarize you with all the workouts, then when you’re ready, you’ll get a LionHeart monitor and be able to see your activity in real time. Each station is a different workout and you can challenge yourself by watching your heart rate and stats on the F45TV.
You can work as hard as you want, challenge yourself, and complete the 45-minute circuit with everyone in the room as a team. Not only that, but there isn’t a single mirror on the floor, and the main requirement to get in is to check your ego at the door. F45 is a judgment-free zone, where everyone is there to sweat it out and have a good time.
Are you afraid of getting bored? No sweat, the F45 Athletics Department constantly designing new exercises to keep you engaged. All F45 drives are designed with the core in mind. You’ll train in ways you never dreamed possible, connecting muscle groups, losing weight, and making daily activities easier while dropping a pant size or two.
Main Differences Between Traditional and Functional Training
- A traditional training program isolates and strengthens individual muscle groups, while F45 functional training focuses on core strengthening.
- Traditional training exercises tend to be static, with one muscle part or group being worked at a time, while F45 functional training works multiple muscle groups simultaneously.
- Traditional training does not translate directly into daily physical activity, unlike functional F45 training.
- In traditional training, you need sets of weights and other equipment tailored to specific musical groups, which is not necessary for functional training F45.
- Traditional training in traditional gyms can be daunting, while at F45 there is no room for shame, just sweating it out.
