There are a million different versions of warm-ups you can do before you workout. If you have been with us for any number of years, you will notice that our warm-up is basically the same, each and every day. You may wonder why. Well here, I'll tell you. The warm-up is designed so that you are able to move your body in all of the positions that you will hit that day in the warm-up BUT also gives you a chance to perfect your movements. Movement is repetition and you have to be able to get reps in to imprint that movement. Each time you do a GOOD rep, it moves you closer to having that be your default movement. This is the one time of the training session where you get to actually think about your movement (whether you do or not is another story lol). You just aren't able to do it during a workout. You are too tired, moving under some weight and intensity. If you have the chance to get a handful of good reps in before your workout, then you WILL move better that day as well as in future workouts. For those that want to stress the idea of raising the body temp before you workout, this is an easy fix. If the warm-up is 15 reps of each movement, then break it up into 3 sets of 5. The 1st 5 go easy and think about the movements. The 2nd 5, pick it up a little. The last 5 you can move. This will get your heart rate up, raise your body temp and do what it needs to do for you. Now I have been told that our warm-up isn't FUN. LOL All I can do with this comment is to laugh. The warm-up is a 10-minute time frame and is meant to help get you ready for the "exciting" part....the workout. I will hear people say how FUN this workout or that workout is and at no time was there dodgeball or monster walks or the pizza game in it. I'm not saying these things aren't "fun" on their own, but I don't see the need for it in the training session. But it just doesn't fit into the WHY for the warm-up. The criteria we set for the warm-up is this: 1) it moves you through all the movements, 2) it allows you to develop proper muscle movement mechanics without fatigue or intensity, 3) it allows the trainer to assess your movements and notice if you have any issues we need to be aware of and 4) it will prep your body for what is coming up. Sure the trainer can change it up a bit but these criteria must all be hit. And yes they can add balloons and face painting if needed:)
