In cross training anaerobic efforts are used to develop aerobic conditioning. Because you are doing cardio and strength training simultaneously, you’re working out at a higher intensity for a shorter period of time—with greater results. In each workout, you’ll get a high level of aerobic fitness without the muscle loss that is associated with high levels of aerobic exercise.
Cross training also incorporates core, functional and metabolic conditioning into each workout to improve endurance, stamina, strength and flexibility, key factors in maximizing athletic performance as well as losing weight.
At Cross Training San Marco, we bring a unique approach to fitness by incorporating a variety of methods such as core, functional, athletic and strength training to improve endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, and aerobic and anaerobic capacity. Components of our workouts include:
- personalized workouts with a certified trainer
- improve endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, and aerobic ability
- work all your muscles, not just the ones you use regularly
- cardio and strength training combined to increase athletic ability
Intense and Effective
High-intensity training, such as cross training, has been proven to trigger significant weight loss and promote rapid increases in physical fitness. For example, if you exercise at moderate intensity on a treadmill, elliptical trainer or stationary bike, you’ll burn about 5 to 7 calories per minute. But if you exercise at 80 to 100 percent of your maximum effort, you will double your caloric expenditure. Additionally, you’ll build muscle and amp up your metabolism which will burn more calories for the rest of the day.
Researchers at Laval University in Canada found that exercising intensely helps you lose fat and build fitness faster than ANY OTHER WEIGHT LOSS PLAN. These results which were supported by studies at the University of Virginia showed that people exercising more intensely lost much more body fat, even though they exercised for less time than people training at moderate intensities.
High-intensity exercise also decreases appetite more than moderate or low-intensity exercises.
