What does it mean to be "Birth Fit"?
Check out this video to hear what some of our members have to say on the topic!
When you're at your optimal health life flourishes!
Giving birth is a massive life event, not just emotionally but physically too. You need to take on this event as if you were preparing for the Olympic Games!
Your body needs to be trained to adapt to the challenge of carrying your growing bump, the endurance event that we call labour and the struggle to return to your pre-pregnancy body.
Both you and baby will benefit massively from being BirthFit.
Kickstart Fitness and our trainers welcome any expectant mothers who would like to get started on their fitness journey to come join us.
Owner at Kickstart Fitness
In fitness there are some basic mathematical equations that lead to specific things happening in a human body.
A calorie deficit is the only sustainable way to lose weight.
A calorie surplus is the only sustainable way to put weight on.
Resistance training (Weight lifting) is the best mechanism to build strength and lean muscle. It is also a proven method of fat loss along with the correct nutrition plan based on a specific macro nutrient breakdown.
Cardiovascular training is the best mechanism to increase aerobic capacity (fitness levels) and will also assist in weight loss depending again on your specific macro nutrient breakdown.
High intensity interval training, not to destroy you or to make you feel sick because that is total bullshit and not beneficial to anybody, but to leave your body burning fat hours after your workout (EPOC effect)
HIIT has scientifically backed research and will only be effective in burning body fat instead of muscle if it's coached and performed correctly!
Our belief at Kickstart (what we see working) is movement quality comes first and foremost, and then comes resistance training coupled with HIIT.
We give you a lot of what you want but more of what you need.
Our experience has thought us this is the best way to manage a large client base.
We focus on helping you move better.
Then you'll train more.
Then you'll get strong.
Then you'll burn body fat.
You'll also understand nutrition.
Fitness professionals are investing in their education, investing their time and effort and in most cases see their clients more than their families so once you have found the one for you, please trust them, trust the process and stick to the plan from start to finish.
Only This will get you the results you desire.
