Answer is Fitness - INSANITY workout classes in Foxboro, MA

No matter where you are now, Insanity Workouts will be a life changer for you. No matter what is happening in your life, this workout will deliver outstanding physical and mental reward.

Let’s discuss Insanity and your core.

  1. Abs cable twist. Grasp stirrup from shoulder height cable pulley with both hands. Step and turn lower body away from pulley until near arm is horizontal and straight. Position feet wide apart facing away from pulley. Bend knees of both legs slightly. Place far hand over other hand or interlace fingers.

    Keeping arms straight, rotate torso to opposite side until cable makes contact with shoulder. Return to original position and repeat. Continue with opposite side.

    This exercise will build strength and power in the core and oblique. This will be a part of a total body workout.

  2. Decline plank. With the feet close together on top of the BOSU dome, place the elbows on the ground underneath the shoulders with the hand in fists. Squeeze the muscles of the stomach and glute. And keep the body in a straight line from head to heels. Hold this position for the desired amount of time.

    After this upper body exercise helps maintain the proper rigid body position requiring a fair amount of strength and stability through the entire core, legs and back.

  3. Abs crunch on stability ball. Lie on an exercise ball with your lower back curvature pressed against the spherical surface of the ball. Your feet should be bent at the knee and pressed firmly against the floor. The arms should either be kept alongside the body or crossed on top of your chest as these positions avoid neck strains.

Caution: Perform this exercise slowly and deliberately as it takes time some getting used to it.

This helps increase the lower back strength support the spine, promote better posture and prevent lower back injury. Allow abs to do the work.

The Insanity Workout here in Foxboro, MA is a tough training which will maximize your time in the fitness center. Knowing the theory of the workout important.

Stay focused. Do not stop and do not count. Just do it. Find your happy workout. Never give up. You will realize you are improving everyday as you feel lighter, stronger and sexier each day.

Complete the sessions. Skipping one session could lead to stiff muscles and lazy tomorrow. Happy workout!

Seven Tips to Get the Most Out of Your Pure Barre Workout

Joseph Coupal - Monday, July 22, 2019
Answer is Fitness - Barre Sport in Foxboro, MA

Your exercise routine should be fun yet challenging. You should get peak results with peak efforts. That is where these seven tips will become useful. Whether you frequent the studio multiple times a week or once a month, these tips will help get the most out of your Barre workouts.

  1. Focus.
    This is probably the most difficult, yet important tip of them all. As women, our brains run constantly, and they run fast. It’s difficult to not think about work, emails, texts, making dinner, picking up kids, running errands, or “What am I going to wear to that?!” The mind-body connection is an extremely powerful one, and if you can tap into it and keep the mind chatter away for 55 minutes, not only will you achieve better results, but you will feel refreshed and breathe easier.
  2. Be Consistent.
    Pure Barre is like any other discipline or sport–the more frequently you do it, the better you get at it; the more you understand it, the deeper you can work (and the more you enjoy it!). We remind ourselves of this during other periods of our lives, why not when it comes to our personal wellness? If a skier didn’t remind themselves of this during ski season, then they can’t be left wondering why they don’t improve when they only skied once or twice during the last ski season. Create a routine for yourself and find an accountability partner, like a friend, who can help keep you motivated.
  3. Don’t be too hard on yourself.
    We’re all human. If you have an off class or miss a few days at the studio, that’s okay! Stumbling is a part of this journey we call life, and it’s important to remind ourselves of that. Don’t beat yourself up because you couldn’t make class today. Instead, use it as an opportunity to still practice self-care. Make a healthy dinner, listen to that podcast, or catch up on the book you’ve been neglecting since the New Year. Each day is a new opportunity to work toward your goal–even if it’s a small step.
  4. Use the leader muscle.
    Class is organized by sections, and despite the music, choreography, and positions changing every time, the format of class remains consistent. With each section, we focus on a leader muscle should lead your movement, meaning it should move first. For example, in the seat section, your seat is the leader. If you were doing an exercise in tabletop and looked in the mirror, you should see your seat move first, before your leg, calf, or foot. Lead your movement with the muscle you are trying to shape.
  5. Avoid mirror and teacher obsession.
    The mirrors are often a necessity in a group fitness environment and are beneficial when you can’t feel if you are out of position, but can see it. HOWEVER, they can be a distraction if you let them. Many of us are guilty of thinking about how our eyebrows are a train-wreck during thigh work. We often say that the best teachers are so verbally clear that you don’t have to look at them once during class–you can stay in the zone the entire time. Next class, pay attention to how much you are looking in the mirror and at the teacher, because neither of those things will help YOU get the most out of your hour.
  6. Let the music take you to the next level.
    There have been a ton of studies on how music impacts the brain during exercise, and it’s no secret that “the human heart wants to synchronize to the music[…]” The songs we use in class are carefully selected per section. We know that music helps to take your workout to the next level, so go ahead and let it push you.
  7. Have fun!
    Exercise should be about how you feel, not about how you look. Don’t forget to have fun in class–go with friends or pop into your favorite instructor’s class. Work hard, smile, and laugh–enjoy the 55 minutes you are gifting yourself.

Eight Mistakes Preventing You From Raising the Barre

Joseph Coupal - Sunday, July 21, 2019
Answer is Fitness - Barre in Foxboro, MA

This blog post is for those of you who feel you’re not progressing as fast as you like within your Barre workout regimen. Set aside the notion that you’re not improving. You are! Here’s some thoughts should any of you be having doubts.

  1. Your barre class and fitness goal don't match: Should you desire more strength and self-confidence in your body, seek Barre coaches with less messaging around "body goals" and "butt burning" and look for positive, body-diverse images and techniques. Should you desire a toned, slender look, here are two options: 1) Do not take barre every day because your body will never have enough recovery time for sustainable fat loss, and 2) Participate in Barre classes that incorporate more cardio.
  2. You gave it away too soon: How frequently do you create ambitious, barre-blitz schedules replete with Advanced Tantric Glute Explosion Barre, Barre For Ladies Who Can Walk on Water, and Physique Impossible? Take on too much at once without properly building up to your athleticism — with barre and any other fitness modality — and you're not getting called back (plus it's worse because you're the one not calling yourself back). Make a weekly barre schedule with realistic intensity and consistency.
  3. You're not paying attention: When your mental attention is anywhere but on the Barre experience you're having, you're wasting your time. Or, more scientifically, you're wasting your energy. Attention is related to cognition in that concentrating encourages optimal information processing. Staring at yourself in the studio mirror, being temporarily deafened by blaring music, thinking about how to negotiate a higher salary (do that later — get it, Mama!) and/or allowing a past breakup to consume your workout-time thoughts means that precious energy needed to optimize muscle engagement goes somewhere else. Practice mindful awareness by staying focused on the present moment throughout class.
  4. You're paying attention, but to the wrong stuff: Keeping in mind this whole attention thing, do you often find yourself having a negative inner dialogue during barre? Comparing yourself to the woman next to you? Judging the instructor for her bold scrunchie choice? Similarly to not paying attention, giving attention to self-defeating language can manifest in behavior. This happens a lot during abs. Instead of embracing the abdominals sequence as yet another opportunity to #werk it, women ingloriously head-flail at a rapid, cooing pigeon's pace. So, basically, their necks hurt, and even a small injury reiterates the "I'm unworthy and suck at life" statement. Cultivate a conversation of compassion while doing barre.
  5. You're Barre-binging: An 80/20 ratio is pretty standard as far as post-barre nutrition goes, meaning about 80 percent of your barre results rely on healthy eating. Instead, many women do twice as much barre as necessary and eat only half as well. Since it takes more energy to burn calories through exercise, the smartest use of your "afterburn" is a balanced meal . . . not more Barre.
  6. Your form is tucking ridiculous: This point could have easily gone first, as safety is key — yet it's going here because you know this already. (Why do we only listen when it's Bey telling us to get in formation?) Aside from the extreme "neckage" mentioned previously, doing push-ups, planks, and any moves while holding the barre and leaning back is prime time for developing shoulder instability. Tuck-wise, rolling your hips so far forward that your lumbar spine reverse-curves is an invitation for low-back and hip problems. Ask for hands-on modifications during class to keep your core, back, and seat properly engaged.
  7. You haven't tried hybrid barre classes: Financially, physically, and probably even spiritually speaking, what are you doing if not barre plus something as awesome as you are? Don't pay $30 to unblinkingly stare directly at your own sticky sock. Don't let your private dancer side stay hidden when there is disco barre. Or go right now to this class where yoga-barre and female empowerment coincide!
  8. You're Barre-ly breathing: Not only is your Barre experience more effective when you're alive . . . just kidding! But truly, breathe. Barre is all about the isometric movements, and proper breathwork is literally the means by which your muscles contract. You see, oxygen is essential to muscle contraction. Isn't it a scary thought that incorrect breathing possibly limited the full potential of every pulse you've ever done? Isn't it liberating to now know that with deeper breaths — and accurate timing of inhales and exhales — you'll elevate your barre experience to infinity and beyond.
