513FIT Welcome

513FIT is an innovative training program that blends strength, conditioning, core, and mobility. It’s geared toward busy people who  want to get stronger, fitter, and stay in the game, but without the hassle of going to the gym.

If you’re tired of trying to figure out what to do when you work out, if you want to start hitting your goals, whether that’s losing unwanted fat, getting stronger, or putting on lean muscle, then 513FIT is the program you’re looking for.

These workouts get the job done quickly (two to three 45 minute sessions per week, plus training guides for working out on your own) by emphasizing things that get results and not wasting time with unproductive busy work.

Plus, we keep training fun! This might sound like it’s not important, it’s actually mission critical.

Why?  It’s important to actually like the process and doing the work because if something isn’t enjoyable, then you’re probably not going to stick with it. You don’t need another item on your list of things that you should do.

That sounds great, but can I do it?

While these classes are challenging and you will definitely feel it, you’ll still have plenty of energy to get through your day.

Plus, all the exercises can be scaled up or down for different levels of strength and fitness.

“That sounds nice, but I’ve always thought that you had to force or “shock” your body to change through really hard training and a restrictive diet.”

Not so. Over the years I’ve observed that the people who do the best, who achieve the most notable results do enough to get the job done and not let their ego keep them going when they should stop. The ones that I’ve seen stagnate and quit are the ones who tend run themselves into a brick wall.

Not only do they run out of willpower and indulge in more food and drink, they also tend to get injured and sidetracked more often.

Simply put, the harder you try to force the body to make an adaptation, the more it resists making that change.

This is a big reason why the workouts to allow you to take short breaks (usually a stretch within a round of exercises), the workload gets shifted across different areas of your body, quality of movement is prioritized, and you aren’t unnecessarily stressed out by trying to chase a high heart rate.

It’s about training purposefully, deliberately, and smart. It’s still work, but it’s not hard just for the sake of being hard.

If you’d like to try a class, but you have limitations or injuries that you’re working around, or if you simply haven’t worked out for a while, I’d be more than happy to meet with you to go over any adjustments that you might need to make.
