READY, SET, SQUAT!

The Total Gym team is taking the 30 Day Squat Challenge!
Challenge

The benefits of squats are numerous. This one simple move doesn’t just develop the muscles of the lower body (legs, glutes, abs and lower back),  but provides a complete cardio workout.

According to Dr. Mercola’s Peak Fitness, squats are an essential total-body exercise. They’re one of the best functional exercises that anyone can do, whether standing on the floor or laying on a Total Gym.

squatAnd aside from getting stronger, sexier “stems”, squats  help build endurance and improve flexibility while promoting balance, mobility, fat burning, and body-wide muscle development.

So how does the 30 Day Squat Challenge work?

It’s easy!

On day one, do 50 squats consecutively. After that, each day you do squats, increase the number of repetitions by 5 and then rest (do NO leg exercises) every fourth day. The day after each rest-day, you should add 10 more reps than the last day you did your squats. The final 8 days of exercise, increase reps by 20 instead of 10.

So join us for the next month and by November you’ll be boasting about the benefits of squatting too!

THE UNIVERSITY OF ARKANSAS CHALLENGES THEIR STUDENT BODY WITH GRAVITY

The University of Arkansas was looking for something unique to offer their campus community when it came to health and fitness — so they turned to GRAVITY — the premier small group fitness program by Total Gym.

“We enjoy how you can do a variety of exercises on Total Gym and still be able to customize each GRAVITY workout to the participants’ skill level,” says Kristin Durant DeAngelo, Associate Director of Fitness Facilities. “With so many different modifications, it provides an excellent workout for every participant.”

Since bringing Total Gym into the state-of-the-art UREC Fitness Center, University of Arkansas students and faculty have gravitated towards small group training on Total Gym with their Zero GRAVITY program, a fee-based fitness program.

Limited to just 6 participants, the University of Arkansas’ Zero GRAVITY small group training offers a unique opportunity to explore a new dimension of fitness by blending Group Fitness with Personal Training. Small Group Training classes provide a specialized format, focusing on  individualized progression and skill development.  These programs are designed for those who are looking to be challenged with the combination of camaraderie, creative workouts and education on fitness techniques and wellness concepts. 

Learn more about the University of Arkansa’ Zero GRAVITY programming below. But first, a little Q&A with the U of A:

Q: How have your students responded to GRAVITY?
A: Overwhelmingly positive! They like the challenging workout it provides them.

Q: What do your students like about GRAVITY?
A: Our students enjoy the diversity GRAVITY gives. There are so many different exercises that constantly challenge you.

Q: What has been the biggest benefit of GRAVITY programming to your facility and your students?
