Circuit Training

A good Circuit training routine combines cardiovascular fitness and resistance training. You can significantly improve your cardiovascular fitness level by exercising in short bursts of approximately 60 seconds each.

Circuit training is excellent for developing good basic strength and body tone.

Circuit training tends to concentrate on “compound exercises”, i.e. those that use more than one muscle group at a time. These “combined” exercises are generally more effective than spending time on one piece of gym equipment that focuses on one set of muscles only.

This type of rotational activity involved in circuit training is an excellent fat burner.

Circuit training is psychologically rewarding. Whatever your level of fitness, you can really push yourself and set your own goals in the knowledge that you’ve only got 60 seconds worth of any activity before you move on to the next.

Circuit Training gives you “Maximum results in the minimum time”. It is probably one of the best methods of exercising as it provides excellent all round fitness, tone and strength. Circuit training has become increasingly popular because it provides a one-stop exercise session, combining cardiovascular activity, toning and resistance training.
