Answer is Fitness spinning cycling classes in North Attleboro, MA

As usual this time of year, we’re witnessing an increased volume of stationary bicycle fitness going on here at our North Attleboro fitness center. This comes as no surprise to us. Stationary bicycle fitness is a great low-impact aerobic exercise activity. It requires little to zero learning curve and can be accomplished in both solo or group environments.

Indoor cycling, unlike outside running or treadmill fitness, is considered a low-impact workout. There is minimal stress and tension placed on ligaments and joints. For some, choosing low-impact fitness routines is a life decision that can add years of quality of life. Some bodies systematically break down faster than others via high-impact fitness. Problem resolution can be long, painful, and expensive. Strongly consider adding some form of low-impact fitness to your regime.

The aerobic component of indoor cycling helps increase metabolism. Increasing metabolism helps your body to process nutrition more efficiently. This helps you control and manage good weight. Indoor cycling is just one of many fitness options for you hear at Answer is Fitness. Let’s get started.

The Difference Between Warming Up and Stretching

Many people are confused about warming up and stretching. Sometimes the terms are used interchangeably but both terms actually have different meanings. While warm-up has no effect on a range of motion, doing some stretching following a warm-up exercise will increase it.

What we should know is that warming up should be done before proceeding to your exercise to prevent injury but stretching, on the other hand, has no effect on it. Thus, might as well limit your stretching before working out in order to increase warm up time.

On the flip side, according to some studies, the range of motion can be increased by a single fifteen to thirty-second stretch for each muscle group per day. Other people may require a longer duration or more repetitions. Some research also states that optimal duration and frequency for stretching may vary by muscle group. There's also a study that support that the use of thirty second stretches as part of the warm up regiment could increase range of motion.

So next time you start your workout, don't skip on these two important elements for one can help lower the risk of injury and the other one can improve range of motion.

This blog post goes out to all of you who secretly desire to engage group physical training for the first time here in North Attleboro, but for whatever reason, you just keep finding reasons to not pull the trigger. Let’s do this!

If you want to make your fitness aspirations bold and challenging, strongly consider circuit training fitness. We assure you that this new fitness routine for you will be constructive, exciting, and leave you wondering why you did not do this sooner. This is a full-body strength and cardio vascular exercise program that makes very efficient use of your limited time.

Our North Attleboro circuit training programs give you countless exercise options to choose from. You will enjoy the options (in fact the encouragement) to modify your circuit set frequently to maximize fitness efficiency. Many fitness enthusiast repeatedly engage the same muscle groups in the same manner. Ultimately, this does not serve as a full-body workout as certain muscle groups become excessively efficient while others lag behind.

Normally, you will be working on different stations about 8-10 exercise stations that will make you move quickly focusing on different muscle groups with little to no rest between stations. Imagine that each station has different exercises that will keep your workout more interesting. Switching the sequence while you are swapping out to different stations and using some equipment, will really be tough and tricky as you will be pushing yourself as hard as you want. Wherever station that you go to, it will surely engage and strengthen your core to the maximum level.

Circuit training offers a significant and modifiable challenge. You have the option to switch from station to station at varying speeds and with varying intensity. Some don’t realize that some circuit training can be incorporated as an end-of-week recovery workout. The point is, this fantastic fitness program is completely customizable by you and your participant group.
