Getting fit doesn’t have to mean doing the same boring thing on the treadmill day after day. Members of our Hancock Wellness Centers enjoy a variety of fun group exercise classes and more thanks to our knowledgeable staff. Our CrossFit and IGNITE programs are growing rapidly, but do you know what these exercise methods are, and why they are all the rage?
IGNITE is for all levels of fitness
Have you heard of CrossFit before? This robust form of exercise has legions of fans across the country because it is challenging, always changing and a whole lot of fun. CrossFit combines high intensity exercise with functional movement and tailors everything to the level of the practitioner. That means, in a normal CrossFit class, you will see a whole list of exercises you are meant to do, from cleans, front squats, box jumps, deadlifts and more and you will be able to change how much weight you are using or how high you are jumping depending on your level.
Even though it is easy to personalize, CrossFit can be challenging and, in some ways, intimidating for newcomers or people who feel that they aren’t “fit enough.” This is where IGNITE comes in and saves the day! IGNITE classes at the McCordsville Hancock Wellness Center incorporate the same functional movement but at a more basic level. Think: foundational dumbbell and kettlebells, basic bodyweight movements, rowing and more. This doesn’t mean that you aren’t challenging yourself. What would be the fun in that? It’s just that IGNITE leaves out the competitive aspects of CrossFit and works with all body types to help members gain strength, stamina, and endurance.
Getting fit with functional movement in Hancock County
You might wonder what all the hype is about. Gone are the days of thinking 30 minutes on a treadmill is a good workout. We now know that strength training, especially moderate to high intensity, is the best for losing weight, maintaining overall strength and increasing your stamina at any age. Building muscle through the functional movements you will find in an IGNITE class will help you to feel stronger as you walk around in the world. You will notice a difference in posture and even the way you are able to go about daily tasks. You will also gain confidence in your ability to take on challenges both in the gym and out.
