Studies have shown that circuit training provides many benefits such as muscular endurance, betters the health of the heart, increases strength, and extremely time efficient. Before we dive into some of the circuit training exercises provided at both gym locations (Mississauga & Brampton), lets meet the dream team: Jessie & Matt (Founders of PSB). Both of whom are proud graduates of PSB, Jessie bringing 7 years of experience as a fitness instructor at Goodlife Fitness. Matt has been a certified personal trainer for the past 5 years with an impressive portfolio.
What is Circuit Training?
Circuit Training consists of at least five different exercises or more that are done consecutively with short break periods in between each set of exercises. Circuit training can also be done with weights for those that know what they are doing or without for those looking to get into circuit training.
Jessie & Matt know the exact pressures that many of you might be facing with schooling and work. They were also once in your shoes, but they realized that having a well-balanced work and fitness schedule can be quite difficult at times. Therefore, after some theory crafting and years of experience…they have perfected the: Full Body Circuit Training. Ranging from Basic (created for the casual gym goers with a busy lifestyle), Balanced, and Advanced (recommended for those trying to achieve certain fitness goals).
New to Circuit Training?
If all this sounds a little overwhelming for you or perhaps you have never heard of this form of training, please lay all your worries at bay. The purpose of circuit training is essentially to improve your overall cardiovascular fitness and increase muscular strength endurance. You might be wondering “how on earth is that possible in 30-45 minutes ?!”. Well, due to an elevated heart rate during most of the training with short rest periods and all the muscles of the body working continuously, this results in insane amounts of calories being burned in no time! In addition, many of the exercises in the circuit training are customizable. For example, if you feel more satisfied doing push-ups rather than sit-ups; this is customizable if there are enough exercises covering the body.
