Benefits of Regular Fitness
Regular fitness is the simplest way to get fit and healthy. At Mondo Surf Village, we offer the option to practise bodyweight training both with ground movements or TRX suspensions, as written in our Fitness activity description. Working with the body’s own weight is actually harder than it looks but also so variable, refreshing and can be done anywhere. For these reasons, we listed the most essential benefits.
Since bodyweight training requires no or only a minimal amount of equipment, you can easily switch between exercises in mere seconds. According to this, your body gets heated up and burns more fat and calories, building more muscle mass at the same time and maintaining a long afterburn effect. The most popular bodyweight exercises are high intensity interval training (HIIT) and plyometric movements that can both be executed with TRX suspensions as well.
Bodyweight training is an excellent choice to improve your ability to balance. Not all the exercises help this, but there are specific movements that really challenge your proprioceptors which are responsible for dictating balance. Increasing this competence is quite a long process and requires a huge amount of continuous practise but if you would like to avoid using free weights or machines, this option is for you.
Thanks to the lack of equipment, bodyweight training allows you to carry out exercises with a lot of range of motion hence engage your body and force your muscles and joints to get completely moved. It is greatly beneficial in favour of joints health and helps avoid injuries that has higher risk when working out with machines or even free weights. In addition, bodyweight training is a good option for those who are recovering after an injury too.
The best thing about bodyweight training is the high variability. Whether you are a beginner or just want to focus on a specific area instead of a full-body training, you are free to choose and order the exercises according to your preferences. The variations are endless, all in intensity, length, number of reps, amount of rest periods, and even the number of equipment.
Strengthening and heart-pumping
Despite many other kinds of sports and movements, bodyweight training provides muscle building and the improvement of cardiovascular endurance at once. Just like mentioned in the first point, changing your position in a short pace keeps your heart rate elevated, while fighting against gravity helps build muscle mass and develop strength.
In conclusion, even being juiced up with TRX suspensions, bodyweight movements are perfect to get lean muscles, strong and spared joints and a healthy heart. Book your holiday now, and get back track with our Fitness classes.
