"Physical fitness is more than being able to run a long distance or lift heavy weights at the gym; or how long you worked out or at what intensity… While these are important measures of fitness, they only address single areas. Physical fitness is made up of five basic elements: Cardio, Strength, Endurance, Body Composition, and Flexibility. Where many workouts and exercise regimens work to integrate as many of these elements as possible, MEGAFORMER TRAINING meets all the elements to physical fitness; not just in 1 session but in each and every move." - Sebastian Lagree
PHYSICAL FITNESS IS DEFINED BY THE FOLLOWING FIVE BASIC FOUNDATIONS:
MEGAFORMER™ addresses them all, not just in one session, but in each and every move.
To improve your cardiorespiratory endurance, train doing activities that keep your heart rate elevated at a safe level for a sustained length of time.
The key to making your muscles stronger is working them against resistance: weights, gravity, and/or springs. MEGAFORMER allows your body to train in counter-resistance to improve muscular strength.
In order to perform without fatigue, you need to train the muscles to fatigue. MEGAFORMER TRAINING trains the muscles to a threshold of intensity that will stimulate improvement.
A person’s total body weight (what you see on the bathroom scale) may not change over time, but the bathroom scale does not assess how much of that body weight is fat and how much is lean mass (muscle, bone, and ligaments). MEGAFORMER TRAINING promotes fat loss and lean muscle growth to improve the total body composition.
Good flexibility in the joints can improve postures and alignment as well as help prevent injuries through all stages of life. If you want to improve your flexibility, your must perform activities that lengthen the muscles. MEGAFORMER TRAINING works the muscle in its length which improves flexibility.
CORE STRENGTH AND BALANCE
Core Strength is the ability for the body to stabilize during movement. It incorporates the abdominals, pelvis, lower back and diaphragm. Your balance is your ability to maintain your support with minimal sway. The torso is the body’s center of power, so the more strength and stability trained in this area, the better chances you will have in preventing injuries and maintaining good alignment and posture. MEGAFORMER TRAINING focuses heavily on core stabilizing exercises and maintaining good form throughout each and every move.
