We are excited to have new workouts from trainer Sandra Koulourides and her Horizontal Conditioning program. These workouts are not for the faint of heart. They will get you burning some serious fat and building strength!
What is Horizontal Conditioning? Horizontal Conditioning is core and so much more. It works your body from head to toe, from the inside out. It has best been described as 'pilates on steroids'. These workouts use body weight with a few props for resistance that will give you total body definition, endurance and strength. You get lean and defined muscles without bulk. To change your body, you have to challenge it. That is what Horizontal Conditioning is all about - it puts the work back into the workout. The results are amazing!
These two Body Blast workouts are short and challenging total body workouts that use your own body weight for resistance - so you can do them anywhere! Each workout is a 25-30 minute interval based core intense workout. The first workout includes impact moves (jumps, plyometrics), while the second workout is nonimpact. Check them out below, and don't waste another minute before getting horizontal!
There will be a lot of exciting soccer over the next month. But this doesn't mean you get a month to chow down on unlimited chicken wings and beer. Instead, how about multi-tasking during the game, and getting your workout in at the same time?! Follow along to the rules above to get a total body toning and cardio workout in!
Start with the pre kick-off warm up. Then each time one of the above occurs, do the corresponding workout. At half time, rev up your heart rate with these four quick moves. Then continue until the game is over. There's a bonus if your team wins!
A new study from Opera Media networks shows that Canadians top the charts with their interest in health and fitness sites and apps. Opera Media networks examined over 400 health and fitness sites and apps. They found a distinct difference in users looking for 'health' information, defined as the sub-category focusing on medical and healthy lifestyle issues, and 'fitness', those catering to exercise interests or weight control. Though, they note an obvious link and interest among users between both health and fitness.
While Canadians show that they are most obsessed, Russia is found to be the least engaged, closely followed by both Indonesia, Brazil and India. The US is more engaged than the norm, but lags significantly behind Canada, Australia and the UK. We have a feeling the World Cup might spike Brazil
