John Bennett, Fitness Instructor at Big Cedar Lodge, offers some answers to our top five fitness questions. Each day this week, we will share his knowledge with you and also answer any further questions you might have.
Q: I’ve seen pictures of your fitness center and it looks amazing, but can someone really start an exercise program while they are on vacation?
A: Yes, not only can they start one if they have never worked out; but they can get a totally different perspective to achieve fitness goals already set. In starting a new workout schedule, I like to teach form. It is important to do the movement, but more important to do the movement correctly and without injury. I spend time talking to guests about their own personal goals, and develop a workout schedule from there.
Many guests have already started fitness programs but are not getting the desired results. I can help develop a fitness program that will revive and enhance the workout that they are already doing. For example, a guest might be focusing on their core muscles, but your core is not just abdominals; in fact, abdominals are a small part of a core workout. Lateral flexion, spine extending exercises, must also be included when focusing on the core. Also, all torso movements work the core, and it’s important to include rotation movements in order to develop a strong core.
Whether you are new to fitness, or have been on a regiment for years; I can help you accomplish your fitness goals. Stop by the Fitness Center and let me develop a program that will bring results.
