If you’ve grown tired of “phoning in” your usual gym workout, we’ve got great news! If you are sick of never seeing results, even after countless hours on the elliptical machine, you need look no further. There’s a new kind of workout in Lubbock that will not only keep you off the monotonous treadmill, but it will get you into better shape than you’ve ever imagined. FIT@Capstone offers a one-of-a-kind, results-driven workout that will have you looking and feeling your best—and you’ll have fun in the process!
What is F.I.T.?
FIT workouts are efficient and way more effective than yet another uninspired hour on the elliptical at cookie cutter gym. But we’re not going to lie: You need to show up to FIT prepared to work hard. These workouts are tough. Our workouts utilize the theory of high-intensity interval training (also called HIIT) to continually challenge your muscles and keep your heart rate up. Not only do you burn a ton of calories during the workout, but your body will continue to burn even more calories for a full 24 hours after you leave the gym. Talk about an effective workout!
Our workouts in F.I.T. are 55 minutes of nonstop effort, giving you a full body workout every time. You can expect to burn close to 900 calories, making it the best workout anywhere for losing weight. Your muscles will never know what to expect, so they will continually be challenged. And you’ll see more consistent results.
What goes into a F.I.T. Workout?
Here’s what you can expect when you come into our gym: There is a different workout posted each day, so neither you nor your muscles will get bored. You’ll never know what you’ll face until you walk in the door. TABATA? Partner workouts? An obstacle course? Yes, yes, and yes! Your muscles won’t know what hit them.
Once you’ve seen the workout mapped out on the board—and get a chance to meet your fellow athletes—you’ll get started. The warmup is usually about 15 minutes long and often consists of a short run or row along with a few other exercises to get the blood flowing. Next up? The fitness test. This is a two-minute challenge that will help you document your progress. It too varies each day. One day you might be tested to see how many air squats you can do in two minutes; on another you might be asked to count your Russian kettlebell swings.
After a bit of ab work, your body will be ready to dive right into the main segments of the workout. Usually these consist of a variety of circuits that will challenge you and push you. There definitely won’t be time to get bored with these workouts!
Who does our F.I.T. Workouts?
Everyone! Our athletes are a diverse group, running the gamut from total beginner to seasoned competitor of all ages and all abilities. The workouts at FIT@Capstone are easily modified, depending on your current level of fitness.
