Body Weight

Use Your Own Body Weight As Resistance

As most of you already know, not all strength training requires barbells.  Lifting your legs, shifting the weight of your torso, and supporting the weight of your body on specific muscle groups is an effective in strength training.  Practice movements supported by core stability to strengthen and elongate our muscles using our own bodyweight.

 

Bodyweight Boredom

Your muscles need continuous challenge to improve and develop.  Our bodies have an amazing ability to adapt to any exercise.  This is why that DVD you bought last year is covered in dust; your muscles got bored.  Even if you were 100% committed and did the workout 5 days a week for a month, you quickly saw a cap to the results and decided “this doesn’t work.”

 

The Challenge

The real challenge with any bodyweight strength training routine is to continually increase the difficulty level; to work your muscles harder even as your body may be losing weight.  This is where personalized strength training instruction comes in.  Our instructors at the Pro Fitness Network can help you bust through these plateaus as you reach them, constantly finding new ways to challenge and sculpt your muscles.

 

Beat boredom and build real strength with our trainers!

Hike to Mt. Baldy

Who wants to join me on a hike this Saturday January 25,  9 am??

The Devils Backbone Trail @ Mt. Baldy

 

Baldy1

The Devil’s Backbone trail is a trail that stretches along the ridge of the mountain east of the Mt. Baldy summit. This trail boats some of the MOST spectacular views in the Mt. Baldy area.(http://www.yelp.com/biz_…).

We will take the ski lift to the Baldy Notch (where the ski lift drops you off and where the lodge is) then hike to the Baldy summit, it is 3.2 miles, or 6.4 miles round-trip. The hike starts at 7,802 ft. elevation and the summit is 10,064 ft

The first section of the hike from the notch to the start of Devil’s Backbone is slightly over a mile. This stretch is fairly steep, then we will get to the Devil’s Backbone trail head. Also the final stretch, 1 mile, is also harder.
Let me know if you want to join me!! Carina
