IGNITE™ is going to be a life-changing program for many people! We wanted to share some reasons why it’s the way to go for you or anyone you know who isn’t happy with their fitness and health!
Promotes long-term health
Functional movements are named as such for a reason. They make us more functional by teaching us to move more efficiently and prevent injuries in our everyday lives. Combined with eating habits that promote longevity and performance you will feel better, perform better, and have more energy even as you get older. This truly is the closest thing to a fountain of youth that exists.
IGNITE™ will help you maintain lower stress levels in your day-to-day life. You possess the remarkable ability to prioritize your time during the day to get to the gym by changing your thought process. Instead of stressing over your hectic day of meetings, crying children and terrible weather – head to the gym and feel great knowing that what makes you stronger also makes you happier and healthier too. Who doesn’t feel accomplished after a good workout session?! Regular exercise raises endorphins, provides us with an outlet for stress, and lowers cortisol levels (the makings for a less stressed you), which is great for everyone in your life!
Establishes great time management skills
IGNITE™ will help you master the skill of using time wisely. With your hectic schedule, it is not always easy to make it to the gym 3-5 times per week. You must plan your workouts around family, social commitments, kids, and work… what a headache! Committing to IGNITE™ will hold you accountable for planning your week ahead of time to make it to classes on a weekly basis. You will find yourself very aware of everything that you have going on and be able to manage it all with ease in no time at all.
Transforms your life
The results you see from IGNITE™ will transfer over to other aspects of your life. The confidence that it delivers will allow you to perform activities you never thought possible. Not only will you feel better physically, but most people notice changes in their performance at work, home, and in their relationships. This snowball effect of positive changes will keep you coming back for more!
Motivates and supports
It is incredibly motivating working out with a group of individuals despite many people’s hesitation. Everyone is working hard to achieve their goals and supporting each other in the process. It is not a competition and there is never any judgement of what your fitness level is since every workout can be scaled by ability. There is always cheering, yelps of encouragement and just an all-around supportive environment!
There is something special that happens when you are in a fitness class with someone, work hard through the workout and end up sweaty, out of breath and feeling accomplished together on the other side. Even if someone went a little faster or punched out more reps than the next person, everyone pushed themselves! You can share that experience, talk about it, and share what worked for you and what didn’t. A lot of great friends are made in the gym and add to the overall accountability in your life to be healthy.
Keeps you accountable
Everyone knows if you missed class and will wonder where you were. If you haven’t been to the gym in a week, your coaches and fellow classmates will inevitably text you or Facebook stalk you to see if you are okay and get you back to the gym. This is the strong community we always rave about at CrossFit Hutt Valley. There is a certain level of accountability that comes with signing up for class ahead of time. We know that consistency is the key to making progress and that the accountability of group classes drives that consistency!
Expands your social circle
Your fellow IGNITE™ members are people that you can share your day with. They aren’t your work colleagues, they aren’t your immediate family, they are friends outside of your normal social circles. These are people that you can let loose with, joke with, and bond with over an intense workout. Aren’t ready to go home after the workout? How convenient that there is a lounge area in the gym or a local coffee caravan only steps away to continue the fun.
Increases your productivity
Let us take a poll – how many lazy fit and healthy people have you met? Oh, none? Slackers are not particularly able to last any length of time in an environment that requires you to push yourself to see results. There are thinkers and then there are doers. IGNITE™ will convert you to the true definition of a ‘doer’. Setting goals and working hard to attain these goals is the base of IGNITE™ and you have to get up and do it to see results! No questions asked, no lolly-gagging or wandering aimlessly trying your hardest to procrastinate. IGNITE™ offers the structure to make this a habit.
Broadens your knowledge
When you workout and spend time with a group you always pick up something new… maybe a recipe, diet tip, joke, fitness tip… or anything related (and sometimes not related) to the gym that you wouldn’t have otherwise learned working out alone. There is ALWAYS something new to learn in every class! Check out the IGNITE™ page and hit the link. If you are lucky, you’ll be one of only 20 IGNITE Founders Club members.
