Are you Cross-Training?

When you hear the term “cross-training,” typically you think of a professional athlete. Whether you’re a professional athlete or not, you will benefit from cross-training. Instead of focusing solely on one type of exercise, such as running or weightlifting, cross-training involves mixing different modalities to target various muscle groups and energy systems. Cross-training incorporates a variety of exercises, activities, or sports to improve overall fitness, prevent boredom, and reduce the risk of overuse injuries.

The benefits of cross-training are improved overall fitness, injury prevention, enhanced performance, reduced boredom, flexibility and adaptability, recovery, and active rest. Whether it’s outdoors or indoors, make sure you identify activities that you enjoy doing, because those are the workouts that you’ll stay committed to each week

Cross-training activities include:

  • Swimming
  • Cycling
  • Aerial or Land Yoga
  • Pilates
  • Hiking
  • Rowing
  • HIIT training
  • Circuit training
  • Dance-based workouts
  • CrossFit-style workouts

Ask a ZGF trainer to help you create a cross-training
program. Consider your fitness goals, preferences, and any limitations or injuries. Your program should be balanced and include a mix of aerobic, strength, flexibility, and mobility exercises that maximize the benefits of crosstraining while minimizing the risk of overtraining or injury.

Jody’s Client Success Story

“The studio layout and professional trainers at Zero Gravity Fitness provide a focused intimate setting dedicated to helping individuals achieve balance between physical fitness and overall wellness,” says Jody. “ZGF is perfect for me at this stage of my life. I work with several trainers, and they help me with cardio and weight training as well as specific stretches.”

Jody lost ten pounds since starting a program with ZGF. “I don’t think I could have achieved this goal without the advice and coaching from the ZGF team of trainers. During the pastyear, the team helped me re-habilitate a broken hip back to full recovery.” With his trainers help, Jody says he feels great physically and mentally each day. “My trainers are committed to my success and I appreciate that and show
them through consistently showing up,” says Jody. “I have been advised by my doctors to never stop working out and ZGF is the place where I want to be. It is where I get maximum physical and mental benefit from my workouts.“
