Q: Why do the custom built Fitastic fitness programs work?
A: All workout programs at Fitastic are individually built with the users specific result in mind. Several design and foundation principles are strategized in each and every program; whether it be Periodization, H.I.I.T., Metcon, or Progression/Regression training, there’s a workout routine for you. Due to the distinctive specificity of these concepts, your workouts will always vary and continue to challenge you over the course of the entire program! What really makes each Fitastic program unique is that each and every daily workout has YOUR OWN Strength calculation input per your exact fitness and strength level. In addition you can choose to substitute one exercise for another that may work better for you. We take pride in positioning each user to maximize their results in the minimum amount of time. You will begin seeing and feeling the NEW YOU immediately!
A: A periodized workout program is best for optimizing strength gains and avoiding over training. Periodization is the gradual cycling of linear or staggered intervals to specificity, intensity, and volume of training to achieve peak levels of strength and physical performance. The cycles will shift gradually from high volume and low intensity to low volume high intensity over the duration of the program. Periodization can be an excellent way to get past training plateaus or to renew your enthusiasm if your training has stagnated.
A: Metabolic conditioning, also known as MetCon, is a method of training that involves a very high work rate, using exercises designed to burn more calories during your workout and maximize calories burned after your workout, or your afterburn. Metcon sessions are often vigorous, high intensity circuit-type workouts that frequently involves challenging total body, compound exercises and short recovery intervals while stimulating anaerobic threshold.
A: High Intensity Interval Training, also known as H.I.I.T. is a training principle in which low to moderate intensity intervals are alternated with high intensity intervals. H.I.I.T. can be applied to aerobic activity such as running, and/or to anaerobic endurance exercises such as squatting. H.I.I.T. is considered to be much more effective than normal cardio because the intensity is higher and you are able to increase both your aerobic and anaerobic endurance while burning more fat than ever before.
