Fit and beyond...
Our vision at Beyond Fit is to provide MORE, to provide classes beyond expectation. There are millions of gyms and classes you can attend, that all provide the same "cut and paste" workouts. The difference at Beyond Fit is we take the time to create periodized workout designs.
What the heck is that!?
Periodization is the process of varying a training program at regular time intervals to bring about optimal gains in physical performance (see footnote 1). Some proven benefits of periodization are improved muscular endurance, strength, power, motor performance, and/or muscle hypertrophy. The goal of periodizing an exercise program is to optimize training during short (e.g., weeks, months) as well as long periods of time (e.g., years, a life time, or an athletic career). Using periodization, a competitive athlete is able to peak physical performance at a particular point in time, such as for a major competition. The same concept works if your goal is overall health and fitness. Periodization will help maximize results in a minimal amount of time! (http://training.strengthengine.com/periodization.shtml)
Twice the results half the time!
Are you tired of the same old boring cardio?! So are we! How many times have you had to convince yourself to get to the gym to walk/run on the treadmill? How much physical progress have you seen as a result? Or what about convincing yourself you are NOT a hamster.
We all start somewhere...
I remember the first time I stepped into a gym. It was one of those big, commercial gyms. As I pretended to know what everything was and how to use it, I felt like everyone was watching me.
All I can remember was the feelings of discomfort and intimidation as I tried to get in shape. I kept reminding myself that most of the members weren't in shape when they started their membership. The feeling of fear was so overwhelming that I quit the gym and try to continue to get fit at home. It wasn't until my mom decided to join the gym with me, that I felt comfortable enough to go back to the gym.
Even when I went to college, the gym their was full of athletes and people who started to work towards their goals before I even decided to get fit. All I could see, was their bodies and gym confidence now.
That "at-a-glance" look at anyone or thing is what holds most of us back from taking the leap into success. We only see everyone's "over-night" success stories, there is never any thought of the blood, sweat and tears that had gone into the success.
Since I can remember, I was always the "fat girl". When I started my journey, I was 5'4" and 170 pounds and had never worked out a day in my life. I was also 18 years old. The goals I had set out for myself and the place from which I had to start seemed out of reach. Something kept pushing me to keep going, to fight for the physique I have today.
During my sophomore year of college, I decided to switch majors from Psychology to Exercise Science because I was committed to helping others reach their goals.
