The K180 Transformation:  EIGHT Core Essentials

Circle-of-Transformation_300
1.  Cardiovascular

The cardiovascular system is an integral part of almost every part of the body.  Therefore, the benefits of cardiovascular fitness go beyond simply strengthening the heart.  There is a direct effect that this type of exercise has on mental processes because of the increased blood flow.  When you exercise regularly, there is also an increase in the number of red blood cells that the body uses to transport oxygen throughout the body.

2.  Resistance Training

Resistance training is any exercise that causes the muscles to contract against an external resistance with the expectation of increasing strength, tone, mass, and/or endurance.  The external resistance can be dumbbells, rubber exercise tubing, your own body weight, bricks, bottles of water, or any other object that causes the muscles to contract.  This is a vital key in the K180 Fitness lifestyle.

3.  Nutrition

At K180 Fitness, we understand that personal wellness starts on the inside.  If you expect your body to output something amazing, you have to input the best possible fuel.  We have created a system that allows you to eat healthy and plentifully in a way that tastes great and is good for your, too.    Learn more…

4.  Motivation

The problem most people have in beginning an exercise program is simply getting started.  Getting started involves more than just exercising the first day.  There are many who do this and never return.  The key is to make it a part of your lifestyle and a habit.  One big factor in a regular workout routine is to have a workout partner or trainer.  Knowing that somebody else depends on you will greatly increase your chances of keeping your commitment.

5.  Accountability

One of the key benefits to working with a personal trainer is accountability.  When left to yourself, it becomes way to easy to procrastinate and talk yourself out of exercising.  The demands of work, kids, or just sheer exhaustion will become easy excuses to not exercise.  With a K180 trainer, you will have someone that you are accountable to, who will keep you engaged, exercising, and sticking to your fitness goals.

With nationally certified trainers and wellness coaches that go through weekly continuing education and training, K180™ Fitness is the only wellness program out there that can offer you the high level of accountability along with the true passion and heart to change lives.  We take your journey to fitness personally, and we are committed to you reaching and maintaining your fullest potential and best quality of life possible.

6.  Stress Management

Nowadays, everything is so competitive, and this causes stress.  Proper fitness plays an important role in dealing with stress.  Improving fitness helps a person think well when under pressure or acute stress.  Maintaining fitness improves strength and the power of the body and mind.

7.  Rest and Sleep

Rest can take different shapes and forms.  It can be a relaxing sleep at night, or it can be taking a much needed (and well-deserved) vacation.  Even making a change in your routine or pace of life can be a form of rest.  Taking a break allows your body the time it needs to restore your energy levels.  Doing something physical will help you to relax, and it is a great way to give your mind a break from thinking so much.

8.  Psychology

Many people who want to get into shape don’t realize there is more to fitness than well-toned muscles.  There’s no shortage of exercise regimes that just promote the perfection of the body or the idea of fitness as a part of a weight loss plan.  When you incorporate regular fitness activity in your life, you’re moving closer to overall mind and body fitness.
