The Advantages of a Fitness Camp for Adults

Monday, August 3, 2015

Today we’re going to talk about why, whether you’re 25 or 85, it’s beneficial to attend a fitness camp for adults. As children, our parents sent us to camp so that we could get a taste of structured living. Intended as a way to transition us into our more regimented lives as adults, it’s easy for us to forget the value of organized activities.

With so many would-be dieters falling off the wagon and lapsing into old habits, the real benefit of an adult fitness camp can be understood. By designing a week-long program that incorporates healthy eating, exercise and clean living, it becomes much easier to adhere to dietary and exercise regimens in the future. Now, let’s take a look at a couple of the immediate benefits provided by this approach.

Tabata: What is it? And what are the benefits?

Friday, April 3, 2015

The week of May 17 is Tabata week, but before you sign up, you may be curious as to what it is.

History of Tabata

Tabata exercise was invented by the Japanese scientist Dr. Izumi Tabata and a team of researchers in Tokyo in 1996. The study involved two groups of athletes: the first trained at moderate intensity five days a week for six weeks for an hour at a time, and the second group trained at high intensity for four minutes and 20 seconds (20 second intervals with 10 second rest time in between) at only four times a week for six weeks. What the results showed is that although the first group increased in cardiovascular assessment, the second group showed more of an improvement as well as with their muscle strength.
