What Goes Into a F.I.T. Workout?
If there is one thing you can expect with a F.I.T. workout, it’s the unexpected. Every time you walk into the gym, there will be a different workout posted on the board. Read it and weep—or rejoice…whatever the case may be that day—and commiserate with your fellow athletes. Then get ready to work!
The workouts vary, but the format is fairly similar every time. We start off with a warmup. This is 10 or 15 minutes of movements to get the juices flowing: running, rowing, bicycling—generally punctuated by a series of squats, pushups, pullups, and the like. Once your body is warm, the workout begins. In earnest!
Next on the board: the fitness test. Two minutes’ worth. You know you want to know how many air squats you can do in that amount of time. Or box jumps. Or slam balls. Or pushups. Or kettlebell swings. Or wall balls. Or burpees. Or—well, you get the picture. This friendly competition against yourself keeps you aware of the progress you are making through the weeks. It’s a great way to gauge your improvement.
Plan to spend a bit of time on core after that. Then, next up is the main portion of the workout, which could be anything from tabatas to partner workouts to drills to obstacle courses. The only thing not on our board? Boredom! Time will fly as you sweat and push yourself to work harder than you ever have in a workout. Tabatas, partner workouts, obstacle course—anything is fair game. You will never do the same workout two days in a row. It makes fitness in the Lone Tree area a whole lot of fun!
