Running on the treadmill for an hour or bouncing from one weight lifting machine to another can get old quickly. And when a workout starts feeling old and boring, it can mean that you stop pushing yourself and you’re not getting the most out of your workout! That’s the last thing we want for the women of San Antonio at Bella Women’s Fitness. That’s why we offer exciting, intense circuit training classes that will keep you motivated and strong. But what is circuit training? Is it good for you and your weight loss or fitness goals? Find out when you visit our fitness center.
How Circuit Training Works
Strengthen your heart and muscles at the same time with eight to 10 exercise stations. Each station will focus on a different muscle group. One station could be squat jumps, another burpees, and other stations could include dumbbell swings, squat thrusts, high knees, and many more. At each station, you’ll complete 10 to 25 repetitions of each move and each rep lasts between 30 seconds to three minutes.
The point of circuit training is to give your body a quick burst of activity, followed by a period of rest. Whether you’re new to working out or if you consider yourself a “gym rat,” circuit training can help you improve strength, gain muscle tone, and increase endurance and stamina. There are also a variety of programs that can be tailored to fit your needs. At Bella Women’s Fitness center, we want to give you an opportunity to create a workout just for you.
