Why Warm up? 

  1. Proper warm up will maximize the efficiency & effectiveness of our workouts
  2. Injury Prevention- We really don't want any one getting hurt...



A circuit is simply a series of exercises. Circuit training is intended to be fast paced, constant movement, with a combination of body weight exercises and resistance training (i.e., using resistance bands, dumbbells, kettlebells, etc.) This type of training is a great challenge, building strength and increasing muscular endurance.

The best part of circuit training is that there are endless options! As I just mentioned, a circuit is simply a series of exercises, so you can create a new circuit every time you workout. I love the versatility of it, how you can work on various parts of your body at once, and that you can tailor it for YOU and how you’re feeling that day.

We will start from the top down- Its crucial to warm up the joints. Most warm ups just focus on muscles & tendons. So many fitness injuries occur within the joints, so we have you covered. Follow Neal's Warm Up Here: 

There are many ways to set up a circuit, but here’s an example of a full-body workout using various types of resistance. Do each exercise in order, 30 seconds each. No rest in between exercises, go RIGHT into the next one. (Oh, the joys of circuit training J ) Then repeat the whole circuit 3 – 5 times.
