Discover X Training at Planet Fitness

One of the most common mistakes people make when it comes to their fitness regimen is repeating the same routine week after week. In fact, your body knows movements, not muscles.

So, to continue to increase strength and fitness and reap the benefits of regular exercise, you need to keep your body guessing by varying your workouts, and mixing functional and cross training methods does exactly that.

Functional and cross training programs are by no means new, but the programme’s effectiveness keeps it popular. In fact, functional training gives you the type of strength that really matters as it improves your coordination, balance, force, power, and endurance, while helping to enhance your ability to perform normal daily activities.

Along these lines, the Planet Fitness X Training programmes offers 30-minute circuit stationed workouts that includes compound exercises around the functional structure, mixing cardio and strength training to get the benefits from both aspects of training. The programme consists of many variables, such as timed intervals, target repetitions, and rounds for time with varied tempos and rest periods. It’s based on strength, functional, plyometric and cardio exercises that incorporates the entire body.
