How to Maximize your Workout

Eat Healthy Carbs Before a Workout

Eating healthy, slow-burning carbohydrates before a workout can help lower insulin levels and burn more fat during the day.

Your muscles rely heavily on carbohydrates as fuel and will burn through them quickly when you start working out. Here is a list of foods, such as whole grains, that could be beneficial to your workout:

  • Oatmeal

  • Buckwheat

  • Fruit

  • Whole wheat bread

Do Cardio After Lifting Weights

Do Cardio After Lifting Weights

Doing cardio after lifting weights allows your body to burn fat faster.


Because working out allows your body to generate ATP, and ATP helps you to burn fat.

Instead of doing cardio first and having to break through all the layers to get to ATP, it is more beneficial to lift first, get to the point where there are only fewer layers to get through until the ATP is generated, and then do cardio, where you can almost immediately break through to that fat-burner.

Interval Training

Interval Training

There are many perks of interval training, most to do with efficiency and effectiveness.

This is because alternating intensities of lifting and cardio workouts have you continually burning calories for hours afterward.

This is great for your heart, and on top of that, it builds up your endurance and is more time efficient, so it’s easy to fit into your schedule.

How to Maximize Your Workout With Stretching

Stretching is crucial, and probably the most important part of any active person’s daily life.

This is because stretching helps you avoid injury. While it is a preventative measure, it also helps to get you more flexible and strong, which is what everyone wants out of a workout.

Lastly, stretching helps with your mobility and endurance in the long term.

All in all, the importance of stretching, eating well, and utilizing strategic workouts is essential to maximizing your time at the gym. Schedule a free consultation with us today, or check out of-class schedules for group fitness!
