Answer is Fitness - Yoga classes in Canton, MA

Whether you are brand new to Hot Yoga, or a seasoned practitioner one thing is certain. There are always ways to enhance your Hot Yoga physical and spiritual rewards. Here are some of top tips for elevating Hot Yoga to new heights:

1. Keep an open mind. Sounds simple, right? However you often find yourself sure of the right way to do your thing. Your experience may not be your neighbor’s experience. So keep an open mind. You will begin to appreciate the things you hate.

2: Precision. It happens to all of us. We fall into auto pilot. It is not a crime. But the more precise you will be with your yoga postures, the safer and more quickly you will improve. This means doing your best to listen to all the little details of instruction. At first maybe you try and nothing happens. No big deal!

3: Intensity. Come to class with purpose. Whether it is to relieve stress, feel better, heal an injury (the list goes on)… when you feel tired, remember your purpose and intention. This will help tap you into the intensity you desire.

4: Consistency. Keep coming back! Never give up! The transformation you desire is around the corner. The more you practice the quicker the results.

5: Stay Hydrated. You are sweating in Hot Yoga, right? Staying hydrated will be key to feeling good. A good basic formula is to drink half your body weight of water in ounces throughout the day. This will help replenish your body after a good sweat.

6: Eat Nutrient Rich Foods. A well rounded diet that is full of good fats, veggies, calories that are good for you will help give you the energy you need to keep strong in class.

One of our favorite things to say is, all you will do is do your best!” As long as you are showing up, trying your hardest, you are getting the benefits. And remember, your best is going to look different each day. Be kind to your inner self and Yoga on!

Flourish Your Health With Hot Yoga

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, October 01, 2019
Answer is Fitness yoga classes in Canton, MA

Hot yoga is not going to be the thing for every person, but it just might be the thing for you. It just might be the path to getting your body to the toned, flexible, and comfortable place that you have always wanted it to be. Hot Yoga is proven to deliver many benefits ranging from improved flexibility, strength, cardiovascular conditioning, increased blood circulation, as well as detoxification and stress reduction which will result to your body flourishing in the pink of health.

Two highly beneficial benefits of hot yoga are detoxification (cleansing) and reduced injuries due to the greater flexibility of the body in a hot environment. But what distinguishes it from other yoga practices is most notably the heat. The heat and humidity increases your pulse rate, which dilates the blood vessels and helps you to burn calories, boost circulation to the limbs, and increase flexibility without the risk of injury. Increased circulation strengthens the lymphatic system and flushes out toxins as well as more readily provides oxygen to the rest of the body.

During you practice, do not overexert. The hot atmosphere will make your body feel looser and more flexible than usual, which may encourage you to push yourself harder into poses. To avoid pulling a muscle or causing any other type of injury, take your time to push yourself beyond your limits. Let your body adjust to the heat and the poses before you start to experiment.

A lot of people do find that hot yoga is a great stress reliever and a welcome mental and physical challenge. Hot yoga is stress relief disguised as a workout. An hour of deep sweat, moving to music in ways that feel good and release tension in your body, stretching everything out, and maximizing blood circulation—all of it puts you in a kind of trance. It is better than any drug and will give your health a big advantage.

Being able to push through a tough hot yoga class can also help people feel more prepared to face the ups and downs of daily life. That is health beneficial. Knowing you can breathe through the discomfort of a challenging pose while you are dripping sweat is something people carry with them throughout their day.

When we exercise intensely, we produce heat, and our bodies are pretty good at dealing with it. The difference with hot yoga is that the exercise is less intense and the heat is external. The outcome tends to be the same in terms of overall temperature. The best way to protect yourself is to listen to your body and use your best judgment.

Make Time For Personal Training Workouts

Personal Trainers are the perfect tool to help you achieve specific athletic goals. Their professional expertise is ideal for those who are training for a specific event or need to achieve a certain level of fitness before they are able to do something adventurous.

The effectiveness of Personal Training Consultation depends on your how well and honest you are at the initial screening and physical assessment. During the initial assessment, you will share valuable information about your goals and fitness level. A proper screening also reveals information on health conditions or injuries that will affect your program design. Once the information has been collected by your Personal Trainers, you will be given an effective plan and safe workout routines that will meet your needs and get results.

Your personal training workout routines is based on your individual goals, fitness level and health conditions. Your particular goals may include fat reduction, muscle and strength gains or general fitness enhancement. Your fitness level may range from beginner and advanced to the experienced athlete. And for those with health condition, always get clearance from a medical professional before designing and implementing a workout routine.

Below are some reminders in having your Personal Training Workout started:

  • Warm-up and Stretching. Whatever your fitness level or goals, all workout routines should begin with a proper warm-up and stretching. Warming up with some light cardio exercise brings fresh blood and oxygen to the muscles you are about to challenge. Exercising when the body is warm improves performance and prevents injury. Save deeper held stretches for after the workout.
  • Aerobic Exercise. Personal training workout does not always include cardio. Surely you will be advised how long, how often and at what intensity you will exercise based on your goals. Some sessions may include cardio in the form of interval training, or circuit training workouts that include high-intensity cardio intervals. Normally these workouts are used for those who want to lose fat or build speed.
  • Resistance Training. Resistance training tends to occupy the bulk of a personal training session and largely depends on your particular goals and fitness level.
  • Strength. A program for those who wants to build strength should involve heavy lifts with three sets of one to five reps. Rest in between sets should be long, three to five minutes, to allow for recovery and maximal force in the next lift.

Many trainers end the session after the least exercise is done, telling the client to make sure to stretch. Many clients will not follow those directions. Post-workout stretching is just as important as the other exercises you do in the session because stretching aids recovery. The trainers will ask you to do a few held stretches for the muscle groups you worked during the session. You may also choose to do foam rolling or active assisted stretches.

Although some physical activity is always better than nothing, if you want serious gains, more strength as well as self-confidence, you need a specific workout plan, persistence, patience and yes, you need to push yourself hard and cooperate with your Personal Training partner.

Gearing Up Your Kids Physical Development

Joseph Coupal - Saturday, September 14, 2019
Answer is Fitness, Canton, MA

It is not a newsflash that kids need exercise in their lives. Parents must be aware of the fact that increased physical activity helps children build healthy bodies, minds, and insures against chronic disease. And we also know that helping our kids to love movement sets them up to be a stronger and healthier teens and adults.

You exercise all the time without even thinking of it. When you run around outside or play kickball at school, dancing and doing push-ups, you are exercising. When you exercise, you make your body stronger. So be active every day. Your body will thank you! Make your heart happy. Your heart is a muscle. It works hard, pumping blood every day. Help your heart get stronger by doing exercise.

Below are the most important physical development that kids get from engaging in regular exercise:

  • Develops Muscle Strength: Muscle strength helps to reduce children risk of injury. Lifting things, including their own body weight, keeps them healthy and limber, so they feel well and function optimally.
  • mproves Cardiovascular Capacity: Moving vigorously cultivates a healthy heart and lungs, and helps prevent hypertension (abnormally high blood pressure), which will develop during childhood. Regular physical activity will also substantially lower blood pressure and prevent heart disease.
  • Keeps Bones Strong: The crucial time to build bones starts before the teen years and lasts until the mid-20s, which is when bones grow to their maximum thickness. You will help your kids prevent the onset of osteoporosis by encouraging them to do weight-bearing activities like jump rope, running games, pivoting, and balancing.
  • Decreases Body Fat: Aerobic activity and strength training help children expend energy (calories), which helps them with weight control and positive body fat distribution.
  • Enhances Self-Esteem: As children exercise, their strength increases, and so does their self-esteem. They gain confidence and become more comfortable in their own skin.
  • Reduces Symptoms of Depression and Anxiety: Physical activity will change your brain chemistry and improve your frame of mind. For example, exercise has been shown to increase levels of serotonin, which will contribute to reduced feelings of depression.
  • Increases Concentration and Alertness: Exercise releases endorphins, which are the feel-good chemicals that act on the brain as natural tranquilizers. Studies have shown that endorphin-rich movement improves mental focus and cognitive skills.
  • Boosts Energy Levels: Movement stimulates attention and energy levels due to improved circulation and blood flow. This helps your body deliver more oxygen and essential nutrients to your tissues, which, in turn, allows you to do more -- and feel better -- throughout the day.
  • Controls Mood Swings: Exercise will help calm kids down and stabilize their mood swings, thus making good behavior more likely.

It is the reason why exercise is a good idea. Fun, physical activities and mental stimulation with family and friends in a supportive environment give children the sense that they have achieved something new and challenging. They feel better. They feel happy. And worth it puts your children in a better mood.
