Learn how to use strength training equipment and burn calories. Strength Training is a type of physical exercise specializing in the use of resistance to induce muscular contraction which builds the strength, anaerobic endurance, and size of skeletal muscles.

Training commonly uses the technique of progressively increasing the force output of the muscle through incremental weight increases and uses a variety of exercises and types of equipment to target specific muscle groups.

Aerobic

Overview:

Cardiovascular exercise, also known as aerobic exercise, uses large muscle groups, continued over relatively long periods of time. When you participate in cardiovascular exercise, your heart rate and breathing rate become elevated. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend two hours and thirty minutes of moderate intensity aerobic activity every week for health benefits to occur. Since cardiovascular exercise requires energy, the food that you eat, and fat stored in your adipose tissue are used as fuel when you exercise. The longer your exercise session is, the more calories you will burn. When the readily available glucose is used up in your blood, your body will resort to burning extra fat, therefore increasing your chances for successful weight loss. Cardiovascular exercise will also increase muscle tone, which will increase your basal metabolic rate, or the amount of calories it takes to sustain your body's functions at rest. If you want to add some variety to your workout routine, the Athletic Club offers numerous group fitness classes. The beauty of taking all kinds of classes is the fact that you'll keep your cardiovascular workouts fresh and avoid boredom in the process. Here are 4 group fitness classes for you to try as you hit the gym. Group Fitness Classes are held at the Arena District Athletic Club which is conveniently located in the Arena District in downtown Columbus, near surrounding neighborhoods including Grandview, the Short North, Victorian Village, and German Village.

Mind & Body

Overview:

Many people think that yoga is just stretching. But while stretching is certainly involved, yoga is really about creating balance in the body through developing both strength and flexibility. This is done through the performance of poses or postures, each of which has specific physical benefits. The poses can be done quickly in succession, creating heat in the body through movement (vinyasa-style yoga) or more slowly to increase stamina and perfect the alignment of the pose. The poses are a constant, but the approach to them varies depending on the tradition in which the teacher has trained. Yoga teachers will often refer to "your practice," which means your individual experience with yoga as it develops over time. The amazing thing about yoga is that your practice is always evolving and changing, so it never gets boring. Although the poses themselves do not change, your relationship to them will. Anyone can start a yoga practice, even if you don't feel like you are very flexible or very strong. These things will improve the longer you practice. Yoga classes are held at the Arena District Athletic Club which is conveniently located in the Arena District in downtown Columbus, near surrounding neighborhoods including Grandview, the Short North, Victorian Village, and German Village.
