When we talk about conditioning, we are typically talking about the way in which a workout is performed. Workouts can be performed at a slow pace which is often considered low-intensity, or fast-pace, which is considered high-intensity. There are also different ways that a single workout can be mixed up and performed including through intervals or with different workout materials and tools. Our professional fitness trainers will assist in developing a conditioning workout method that works best for you.
Conditioning Methods & Techniques
As mentioned previously, the popular types of conditioning methods typically referred to the speed in which they are performed. The other types of conditioning sessions refer to the workout tools that are used to help complete the session, such as mats, kettlebells, and other forms of circuit training equipment, such as ropes, weights, and jump ropes. Your personal trainer will decide which methods are best for you depending on your fitness goals and which part of your body needs to be targeted with the specific training. The main purpose of conditioning is that your body is not meant to get used to the workout, rather it is supposed to be challenged every time it performs it. If the exercises feel as though they are getting easier, it just means it is time to increase your weights or your intervals.
Why Conditioning is Good for You
Conditioning is a fantastic way to not only stimulate your body but to keep your mind feeling healthy too. It helps you keep in sync with your mind and body when performing quick activities that result in a high-intensity workout. Conditioning is also good for you in that it helps keep your mind active while your body is performing a rigorous activity. The more conditioning you do, the more your body will build up resilience and stamina. Conditioning keeps your heart pumping, your lungs pacing, and your blood flowing. All in all, it is meant to keep your body going at maximum capacity but for the betterment of your health.
Types of Conditioning
There are many different types of fitness conditioning but some of the types that we incorporate into our workouts include low intensity, medium, and high intensity, circuit training, and aerobics. Each of these different types of fitness conditioning provides great results and can boost any cardiovascular activity and overall health. If you are new to conditioning, we will always begin slow and build up your stamina before moving on to higher grades of conditioning.
Conditioning is also a great way to boost your mood. This is because when you were able to complete a high-intensity workout, your body leaves the session feeling satisfied and your mind is at ease and feels accomplished. It can be challenging to get through high-intensity workouts and conditioning sessions, but the endorphins released after the fact are often what keeps most people going. We highly recommend regular conditioning as a mood-booster to keep your mind and body in sync.
