Answer is Fitness Foxboro, MA Group Power Workout Classes - Group X Fitness Class

As it pertains to physical conditioning, there is truth to the old adage that there is strength in numbers. Exercising with others delivers emotional feedback that you are all in it together and that you are not going it alone. You expect the group to be there for you, and they expect the same of you. It is mutually motivational.

Our Group Power classes are increasing in popularity due to the group concept but equally or more about the substance of the fitness program itself. Group Fitness is designed with both strength and power components that use bodyweight exercises and adjustable barbell loaded with weight plates. Participants do lunges, presses, and squats to increase muscle strength. It is a low-weight exercise and it develops your muscle tone. After a warm-up, there are eight choreographed weightlifting songs which you will follow simultaneously and then you stretch. Studies found that most people who worked out with others enjoy the exercise more than those who sweat it out.

Group strength training exercise are trending positive world-wide. It started with the rapid rise of group spin cycling, aerobic and dance-based classes. Now, add Group Power to that list. You’re going to love it. For more information regarding group power, contact Answer is Fitness.

How To Hydrate When Working Out

Answer is Fitness - Foxboro, MA

Exercising is strenuous physical activity that accelerates body water loss. Moreover, as we workout sweat production increases which means more fluids from the body are vaporized. During this process we lose electrolytes which play a vital role in conducting nerve impulses and contracting muscles. If you are not hydrating properly, you are losing water and electrolytes which can result in impairment of body functioning.

While water is the best fluid to drink before, during, and after an exhausting workout, there are a few other beverages that can replenish lost body fluids and electrolytes.

Coconut Water

Natural Coconut Water contains essential electrolytes such as sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus. As a matter of fact, one serving of coconut water contains more potassium than a banana.

Smoothies

If you don't like flavourless water, you may go for blended fruits and/or vegetables. It's best to use water or coconut water to your smoothie instead of milk. Also, include some watery veggies into the mix like cucumber, celery, and spinach for maximum hydration.

Herbal Tea

During colder weather, or for those who want something different, tea has less caffeine than other caffeinated beverages and is packed with anti-oxidants. You have several choices for flavor, so it can satisfy your need for flavour as well.

Strength Training: Why Is It So Important to Your Health

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, April 28, 2020

Strength training plays a vital role in your overall health. We’re not talking powder slapping, grunting, and slamming iron power lifting. We’re talking about using reasonable weight and various resistance devices to tone and strengthen your muscles. Why do health experts unanimously agree about the importance of strength training?

Strong, fit muscles support posture and bone structure making your body movement more efficient while preventing injury. Our strength training programs are designed to improve muscular fitness by exercising a specific muscle or muscle group against resistance including free-weights, weight machines, or your own body weights. Strength training improves heart health, your balance, strengthens bones, and helps you lose weight all at the same time. It simply makes you look and feel better.

Regular strength or resistance training also helps prevent the natural loss of lean muscle mass that comes due to aging. Strength training is helpful for weight loss as the exercise burns calories both during and after the workout. For older people who are at risk of falling because of worsening physical condition, strength training reduced the risk. Balance is dependent on strong muscles. Simply put, strength training keeps you young, safe, and confident.
