I had a friend ask me last week, "do you burn more calories when you're working out in the heat?" Like everything related to exercise physiology, that's not an easy question to answer. Our bodies are extremely complex, and work well to keep our internal temperatures regulated all the time. If that process actually does burn more calories, I'd never given it much thought.
Why not you ask? Well, the simple answer is that there are other benefits outside a higher calorie burn that warrant the use of training with heat and cold! Check out these tips (taken from a recent ACE Fitness Article and other sources).
Why Join a Challenge Group with Ken?
If you're on Facebook, you no doubt have a friend who is a Beachbody coach. They're the ones posting pictures of themselves working out and, asking you to join their groups and drink their shakes.
You might even have a few of these friends on Facebook, but hat you probably don't have, is a friends who is BOTH a Beachbody Coach, Certified Personal Trainer, and Fitness Instructor.
That's where I step in! If you've thought about working out with a Beachbody program, or even Personal Trainer at the gym, I can help you out. By joining my August Challenge group, you'll receive one-on-one attention, and the guidance you need, to take one of Beachbody's already excellent programs and customize it to meet your specific goals. We will review what's working, what's not working, how you should make adjustments to your plan, and more. It's like paying for a Personal Trainer at the gym, but for a fraction of the cost!
Why Join a Challenge Group at All?
Challenge groups are a great way to plug into a community of like minded people, with similar goals, while all working through a program. Challenge groups will help you stay motivated, while motivating others! They provide a resources such as recipes, workout tips, motivation, etc.
