When it comes to fitness, things can get pretty confusing. There’s so many options, from gyms to boutique studios, HITT classes, Tabata, pilates, personal trainers and much more. The best program for you depends on what you’re looking to achieve. We have been in the yoga and fitness industry for almost twenty years, and we’ve seen a lot of workout trends come and go. The one constant in our lives has always been yoga, but we often did pilates or hired a personal trainer to stay fit. Given that we’re working moms, we wanted to create a combination fusion yoga classthat had it all, including cardio and resistance training. We say it often, but before FlowLIFT, staying in our optimum shape was time consuming and expensive. So which is better — fusion yoga or hiring a personal trainer?
What You Get With Personal Training
For the sake of time we won’t compare all the workouts out there, but we will explore the difference between training at a gym and taking a fusion yoga class like FlowLIFT. Hiring a person to train you one-on-one can cost upwards of a hundred dollars per session depending on where you live, so that in itself deters a lot of people. Some of the benefits are working on exercises that target your desired body parts and having someone there to keep you in perfect alignment throughout the entire session. You’ll also work harder when someone is there watching your every rep, encouraging, you and making sure you do every exercise safely. However, because personal training focuses on isolated movements with heavier weights you tend to get very tight and you limit your range of motion. There’s very few flexible personal trainers that we’ve encountered through the years. Most, especially as they get over forty, often complain about “feeling older than they are” because they’re so tight.
Why Fusion Yoga Has Everything You Need
The FlowLIFT fusion yoga class combines yoga, pilates, strength training and many multi-planar moves that increase range of motion and improve balance along with agility. This 45-minute class also gets you cardio by doing high reps with low weight at a steady pace. You sweat your butt off, tone the muscles without bulking up and you’ll learn how to move like a ninja. There are no isolated movements in FlowLIFT. Every dynamic, compound move is a full body situation that needs to be integrated with a constant state of concentration. You can’t drift off in this class, which means you’ll get a nice rest from the incessant chatter of your ego-driven mind. Hello, stress relief!
Strength and Flexibility Equals Balanced Fitness
You can certainly work with a personal trainer, but try to balance it by getting plenty of yoga. Being flexible and agile are just as important as being strong and looking good. You can certainly build strength in yoga classes labeled “vinyasa” or “ashtanga,” but the cardio and resistance training will be missing. FlowLIFT fusion yoga has it all.
