GET WITH THE PROGRAM
Equinox’s Personal Training program provides constant challenges, evolves with your fitness level and produces the results you want. Our exclusive Three Cycle System consists of three progressively challenging cycles —each with a rotating focus on either: Strength & Conditioning, Balance & Coordination, and Advanced Training— which keep your body stimulated while you achieve new levels of fitness.
The Three Cycle System is designed to continuously stimulate your body through progressive exercises and movements so you avoid the effects of plateauing. By frequently introducing your body to new and demanding stimuli, you will see the benefits to body and mind throughout the life of your training program.
THE THREE CYCLES
CYCLE 1—STRENGTH & CONDITIONING
The goal of this conditioning phase is to build a strong fitness foundation. Your body fat percentage will decrease as your strength, flexibility and cardiovascular capacity increase. This program phase prepares you for Cycle 2 by improving the way your body moves and feels so you’re ready to meet new challenges.
CYCLE 2—BALANCE & COORDINATION
In this phase of training, greater emphasis is placed on increasing cognitive skills to enhance overall physical output. Because greater demands are placed on the neuromuscular system, fat loss and strength gains continue ultimately resulting in the acquisition of skills that enhance proficiency in daily movement or athletic performance.
CYCLE 3—ADVANCED TRAINING
In this advanced training phase, your program will be brought to a higher level to achieve optimal fitness and highly specific goals. Techniques relating to a specific sport or activity may also be addressed during this cycle, or skill complexity may be advanced to continue the challenge. Once the third cycle is completed, the training program goes back to the first cycle, but at a more advanced level.
