Studies have shown that an hour of running on a treadmill at 70-80% max HR OR working on High intensity exercises (like Burpees, push-ups and other types of Metabolic resistance training exercises) for 20-40 seconds with 10-20 seconds rests for just 10-30 minutes will give the same wieght loss - fat burning and calorie burning as long cardio. BUT.... Overall muscle endurance, stamina, energy, and strength is ONLY improved with the second form of exercises - NOT long cardio. ALSO, those who have worked on creating stronger bodies (not just leaner) have less struggles keeping weight off than those who only do cardio.
While I happen to be a huge fan of running, I am also a BIGGER fan of short burst workouts that give me greater results for improved muscle and form. Let's face it, I look better when I am not just skin and bones - plus I can move the couch without any help. My back is strong, I can lift, I can pull. It's a matter of functioning better as a human being.
The Phazes Circuit is a body weight based, Metabolic resistance training circuit. It's short - only about 30 minutes. But you can decide your intensity level with the help of a trainer and get the workout you need to give you the best results possible.
There is no fancy equipment in a Phazes Studio. Just exercise posters around the room a timer and a trainer to guide you in proper form for each exercise you do. You might use a jump rope, swiss ball, TRX, Pull-up station, or weights. But unlike those big box gyms the first thing you see is not a bunch of expensive equipment, it's an empty floor - waiting for you, and a trainer ready to help. That is the best fitness tool you will ever get!
Have you come in to try the Phazes circuit yet? It just might surprise you.
