How does FITx, Functional Interval Training Work?
FITx Interval Training is a technique in where you increase and decrease the intensity consistently maintaining your level of aerobic and anaerobic training. The protocol for interval training is to push your body past the aerobic threshold for a few moments, then return to the level of aerobic conditioning with the objective of improving your performance and results (speed, strength, and endurance). The aerobic portion of the workout will help increase cardiovascular fitness while the anaerobic will build muscle and strength. Together the results are real and lasting for clients of any age and fitness level.
Benefits of FITx:
FITx training will lead to better muscular balance, faster weight loss, and overall joint stability, decreasing back pain and injuries sustained in an individual’s daily life or sport. These benefits arise from the use of training techniques that emphasize the body’s natural ability to move in all six degrees of movement. Studies have shown that FITx training increases strength by 58% and balance by 196% over fixed/traditional gym exercises. FITx training has also proven to burn 50% more calories than the use of any other piece of traditional gym equipment or exercise.
