What is Cardio training and what are its advantages?
In order for an exercise to be considered as "cardiovascular" or "aerobic", it needs to elevate your heart rate to 60 to 85 percent of its maximum rate. When you're in this aerobic zone, you should be able to talk, but not be able to carry on a long conversation.
Most experts agree that cardiovascular training should last for 20 to 60 minutes, with the norm being 30 to 40 minutes. It should be performed a minimum of three days per week, with four to five days being optimal and six being the max.
BLFS is also equipped with the best in class strength training equipment. Now no one can stop you from getting that pumped up biceps or the six pack abs!
What is strength training and what are its advantages?
Proper strength training can help us to look better, feel better and function better. Here are 10 reasons why you should pick up your weights today and get started:
Stretching is fundamental to good health. Among its many benefits, stretching lengthens the muscles, improves flexibility and joint range of motion, gets the blood flowing and prepares the joints for work. It is a relaxing and healthy activity by itself and is vital in preventing exercise-related and chronic stress injuries.
Stretching can also help combat the effects of aging and inactivity, both of which cause the muscles, tendons and ligaments to shorten, reducing flexibility. As a result, it becomes more difficult to meet life’s physical challenges. Furthermore, stretching exercises can alleviate symptoms of stress, carpal tunnel syndrome and arthritis.
WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAMS:
The BLFS weight loss programs help you lose weight in a healthy way with long-term lifestyle changes. We do not believe in crash diets and unhealthy work out schedules. All members who sign up for the weight loss program are provided with expert guidance of a personal trainer and dietician
WEIGHT GAIN PROGRAMS:
The key to weight and muscle gain is knowledge. Building muscle and gaining weight isn't rocket science by any means, but it isn't something you should expect to succeed at without proper preparation, without putting a little thought into it.
The weight gain program has many factors that contribute to its effectiveness. To gain weight fast, you need to emphasize on all factors. Alone, great diets or great weight training routines may produce some results but the big muscle gains come when you put them together.
The BLFS in-house dieticians take benevolent care of promoting good health, weight loss and weight gain through the art of proper eating and diet control.
All BLFS members can avail the expert guidance and services of our in-house physiotherapist.
All members are assisted by our well qualified personal trainers who make sure you get the best out of every workout session.
We provide a well rounded and healthy exercise routine by offering Yoga classes for all our members. Yoga is an excellent form of exercise for the mind and spirit.Yoga practitioners also learn to control their breathing. The concentration required during a yoga session helps take your mind away from daily stress.
A recent study by Boston University found that one hour of yoga boosts the levels of gamma-aminobutyric, a neurotransmitter that helps reduce anxiety and depression. Yoga is also good exercise for the body. Many of the poses associated with yoga require great physical flexibility.
Even basic asanas require you to stretch the muscles, which increase your overall range of motion. This increased flexibility makes you less vulnerable to injury. It is also great for improving core body strength.
The steam room is beneficial for people suffering from sleeping disorders, poor skin circulation, dry and chapped skin, muscular tension, muscular weakness in the subcutaneous blood vessels and sensitivity to sudden temperature variations.
Another great advantage of the steam bath is its highly beneficial effect on the skin. The moist heat stimulates the subcutaneous blood flow and cleanses the skin intensively, opening the pores, removing dead skin and impurities and leaving the skin feeling soft, supple, clean and smooth.
BLFS not only cares about your health, but also your emotional well-being. BLFS also helps its members who suffer from emotional turmoil, clinical depression, addictions, mental trauma and stress.
