Why train with us? What’s so special about what we do? What are the secret ingredients to what we do on a daily basis?
Over the next few posts, we’ll be diving into the details of what we do, how we do it and why we do it…
If you take nothing else away from these other than a bit more knowledge to apply to your own training at home or in another gym somewhere then we’ll have done our job. But if you want to speak to someone about how being part of the SCFIT family can help you achieve your goals then book your FREE No Sweat Intro here.
What do we do?
- We lift heavy
How do we do it?
- We use a range of carefully selected exercises that allow people to safely lift heavy things. Sometimes these things are external objects like barbells, dumbbells and kettlebells, sometimes we use our own bodyweight as resistance
Why do we do it?
- Lifting heavy causes the fibres inside our muscles to be fully recruited and teaches our bodies how to produce force inside and outside the gym (as a side note, lifting light weights does not produce the same response).
- When we lift heavy we can manipulate our diet to produce either bigger muscles (you’ll have to eat more) or the lean and toned look (eating enough to recover but not too much). Again, light weights don’t produce the same results despite what the magazines have been telling you for years.
- Heavy lifting causes our tendons (the things that attach our muscles to our bones) to get stronger and more resilient to injury.
The theme running through these posts, if you hadn’t noticed it already, is that we’re not solely focused on one type of training. We firmly believe that performing a range of different things in your training is important because one thing doesn’t do everything for you. Changing up the movements and changing up the intent you perform the movements with are key factors in maintaining health and fitness at all stages of life.
