At Element Fitness, your workouts in London will consist of exercises that incorporate wooden plyometric boxes and wall and slam balls.
Boxes and Balls
Plyometric boxes are used to increase explosive power and vertical jumping skills. They are often used in FIRE workouts and fitness classes to push the muscles to their extreme limits. With various heights of 20, 24 and 30 inches, Element Fitness has options for those just starting out to those with more experience and a need to completely exhaust their muscles.
Wall balls and slam balls are an excellent piece of equipment for working out your full body. The act of getting into perfect squat form exercises your calves, glutes, hamstrings, and quads while the act of throwing the ball against the wall or floor engages your upper body muscles, burning your arms, back, chest and shoulders. The balls at Element Fitness are textured in several weights to challenge you in your individual fitness needs.
The Benefits of Fire
The primary benefit of a Fire (Tabata) workout is that you workout for a short period of time, but the workout is more effective than a regular cardio workout. This is great for those who live a busy lifestyle and are short on time allowed in the gym. Tabata FIRE workouts burn muscles, causing an increase in muscle growth. It burns a lot of fat and builds aerobic and anaerobic capacities.
Bringing fire to your muscles creates a leaner and fitter frame. The more muscle tone you have, the higher the number of calories you will burn during any workout.
