Working the Whole Body
I love working out at Vertex Fitness. The whole staff are phenomenal personal trainers. They’re encouraging, patient, knowledgeable, and somehow know what my body is capable of (even when I’m not even sure myself). There’s been days I’ve walked through the door at Vertex and have totally not been in the mood or felt like I’ve had the strength to get through five minutes let alone 30 minutes of a whole body workout, but one of the staff gots me through it and I’ve left every time feeling re-energized.
I do have one complaint: I wish spot training problem areas really worked.
At Vertex they train the whole body: you work your upper, lower body, mid session and arms during the same session. The entire body responds to the weight training and since every body is unique, every body reflects the effects of the weight training differently. Exercising the entire body is the proper, and only, way to achieve an overall stronger and fitter body.
So I’m glad I’m not wasting my time doing 100 crunches for those flatter abs I’m dying for or spending precious time performing countless lounges for the perfect butt. I’m lucky to be working with professionals that understand the body and know how to properly train it. I can, however, continue to hope that my “problem” areas start responding faster to all my hard work. There’s nothing wrong with wishful hoping, right?
