What is Gravity Training?
Why is it one of the best HIIT workouts?
When I first saw my first Gravity Trainer, I was running my personal training business at the personal training studio in Vancouver, Executive Lifestyles Fitness. The first thing I said to the owner was what are these ( &%#%&* ) things in the way of where I mostly trained my beginner workout clients with bodyweight exercises. It’s the best HIIT workout you’ll ever have.
Try it you’ll like it
He replied, “Oh you will really like them, Would you like to try a 30 min workout on one?”
Me, always wanting to do a workout with a fitness trainer so I don’t have to think about what I am doing, just doing the workout. I was like sure why not. We agreed on the time and I showed up.
It was tough.
My first experience was incredibly hard and I was at that point in the best shape Training 7 days per week in different modalities, Mountain biking, Hockey, and General fitness. The next day I couldn’t lift my arms for 3 days.
I got stronger at Hockey.
Following workouts, I was stronger and I noticed I was much stronger in hockey and on my Mountain bike on the North shore. In my hockey games, I was able to control better players with my strength, I was also faster being able to keep up to guys 20 years younger in their late teens early 20s playing about the same amount of time since I had started.
In my Mountain biking, I was able to hit bigger stunts, go faster down Whistler double Blacks, bigger jumps, 14, 20 feet, High ladders or skinny logs I ate them up. So I started to train my clients on them and started to notice huge changes in their strength, tone, and abilities.
On my own
Eventually over time – I had to break off and purchase my own gravity trainers. I liked them so much that I bought 5 to run group classes with. In fact, 80-90% of my clients come because of the uniqueness of the gravity trainer.
When I purchased my EFI Gravity Trainers, my clients said: “Wow. It looks like a cross between a Pilates Reformer and the Total Gym. Haha! Remember those infomercials?”
I grinned. Because I knew these clients were about to get schooled. 🙂 They simply didn’t realize how Gravity was going to elevate their fitness routine (and yes, their booty and energy levels, too!).
One week later
Sure enough, within a week of working out, my skeptical clients were seeing muscle definition faster than ever before. That’s because this powerful and versatile piece of equipment is a true full-body, HIIT workout. It combines the fat-burn of cardio, core strength and posture refinement of pilates and the muscle building/toning of weights — all in one.
The best part? It’s fast. Within a 60 minute workout, even when you think you’re resting, you’re still working out. You’re just engaging muscles in other parts of your body — usually in the places that need to wake up the most!
So, for those of you who have not tried Gravity — or for current clients who refer friends — I am offering a semi-private workouts FOR FREE. That’s right: one for the friend and one for you. You can’t beat that with a stick! (or in the case of Chuck Norris, with nunchucks!)
How Gravity Training Works: The Deets
Quick results are a natural by-product of an extraordinarily efficient functional workout. Because you are moving quickly from one exercise to another, on the Gravity Training System or GTS®, in continuous multi-plane, multi-muscle movements for a sustained time, your heart is able to work in the zone for cardiovascular endurance thereby increasing the productivity of your resistance workout.
GRAVITY produces visibly quick results because GTS® forces all of the five components of fitness into one gymnastics like workout. Nearly every exercise recruits the stabilizer muscles of the abdomen and back; you work several muscle groups at the same time, which decreases the time it takes to fatigue the muscles, making the workout shorter and more efficient.
If you’re looking for a beginner or an advanced workout on the same equipment – you can see more here. Want to learn more about gravity training? We could even have a beginner and and advanced workout side by side with slight modifications, and both parties will be happy.
