Fitness Evolution Downtown Evofiit

Fitness Evolution has designed a new way to work out which combines the calorie burning powerhouse of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) with the muscle and flexibility building of Multi-Planar/Three Dimensional training to help you achieve your weight loss and strength building needs: Evo FIIT.

I know what you’re thinking, HIIT sounds intimidating. And it is, at first. You’ll be asking your body to go beyond it’s comfort zone because that’s when you start to build muscle. But why would you want to leave your comfort zone? That treadmill has been good to you, maybe you’ve lost a few pounds. But have you noticed that it takes more and more work to get the results you had intiially? That’s because your metabolism has adjusted to your routine and it has now set this as the new “normal”. To break through that stagnation you’ll need to go longer or push harder to get new results. With HIIT, your body will continue burning calories 24 hours AFTER you’ve completed your workout. This is called Afterburn and we’ll get to that.
Ok, so now maybe you’re thinking HIIT sounds reasonable, but what’s this Multi-Planar/Three Dimensional thing? We live in a three dimensional world so this is just some made up psuedo science thing right? Not quite. Think about the motion that is required to do a bicep curl. You’re locked into one movement, forward or back. Same idea with a leg press, leg extension, or tricep extension. These are all sagittal movements, the most common for weight machines. Now think of a dumbbell fly, that is a rotational movement. And a dumbbell side raise is a frontal movement. Three movements, three planar dimensions.
EVO FIIT joins Three Dimensional Traiining with HIIT

There are multiple benefits to three dimensional training. You work the muscles from different angles, you will create more muscle fibers, resulting in increased strength. You also engage more of the small stabilization muscles; strengthening these helps balance and and gives you a stronger core. Activities in daily life—playing sports with your kids, carrying groceries, running for the train, or cleaning the house—all use every plane in 3D. Functional exercises are based on these daily life movements, building muscles where you need it most.

Evo FIIT utilizes tools which allow unlimited three-dimensional movement: the BOSU balance trainer, stability ball, TRX suspension trainer, TRX rip trainer, medicine balls, and kettlebells are just a few examples.
Combiniing these with HIIT mixes periods of high-intensity training with low-intensity training or, at times, inactivity . This causes your metabolic rate to stay higher longer, so you’re still burning calories even while your body is at rest due to the Excess Post-exercise Oxygen Consumption (EPOC) effect.

EPOC (AKA Afterburn)
During the immediate post-exercise recovery period, oxygen is used for the following functions:
• Production of Adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the biochemical used to store and use energy, to replace the ATP used during the workout.
• Create muscle glycogen from lactate
• Restore oxygen levels
• With protein, repairs of damaged muscle tissue
• Restore body temperature to homeostasis
Exercise that consumes more oxygen burns more calories. The body expends approximately 5 calories of energy to consume 1 liter of oxygen. Simply put, increasing the amount of oxygen during and after a workout increases the amount of calories burned.
Circuit training and heavy resistance training with short rest intervals require ATP from the anaerobic pathways, leading to a significant EPOC effect.
Strength training with compound, multijoint weightlifting exercises or doing a weightlifting circuit that alternates between upper- and lower-body movements places a greater demand on the involved muscles for ATP from the anaerobic pathways. Increased need for anaerobic ATP also creates a greater demand on the aerobic system to replenish that ATP during the rest intervals and the post-exercise recovery process. Heavy training loads or shorter recovery intervals increase the demand on the anaerobic energy pathways during exercise, which yields a greater EPOC effect during the post-exercise recovery period.
When energy is needed immediately, the anaerobic channels can provide the needed ATP much faster than aerobic metabolism..

Functional High-intensity interval training (FunHIIT) is the most effective way to stimulate the EPOC effect.

FunHIIT works because during high-intensity exercise ATP is produced by the anaerobic metabolism; once that ATP drained, it requires replenishment of ATP. The rest interval or active-recovery period during an anaerobic workout allows aerobic metabolism to produce and replace ATP in the involved muscles.

What all of this comes down to is that you will literally be burning calories while sitting on your couch the next day and isn’t that what we all really want?
