You may have heard of Hero workouts, a CrossFit tradition. Here at NZ Fit, we like to recognise our local heroes, men and women who are legends in sport, innovation and adventure.
Today, we're paying tribute to Burt Munro, the worlds fastest Indian, who on this day, in 1967, set a landspeed record that remains unbroken.

If you have a stationary bike of some sort, or a safe piece of road you can hoon out and back on a real bicycle, give this one a go!
"You live more in 5mins flat out on a bike like this, than most people do in a lifetime" - Burt Munro

During the majority of 2020 our community worked out from home with the support of the NZFit coaching team. Once restrictions eased, those who had kept up a consistent training routine, were able to come back to the gym and pick up right where they left off!

Nothing wrong with the odd day in your 'jammies, binge watching Netflix, but just remember that any activity is better than nothing.
A long walk, a few squats, a few pushups, see how long you can hold a plank; it all adds up.

We're here to help you every step of the way whether at home or here at the gym!

The common belief that your metabolism declines throughout your 20s, 30s, and 40s may be incorrect!

Recent research has presented us with an amazing piece of info - suggesting that our metabolisms don't "slow down" until we hit age ~60 !!

It's important for you to realise that while the aging process does introduce its fair share of challenges, you aren't broken because of your age.

You can get fit and improve your health at ANY age.

The average age of our membership is ~40 and it ranges all the way up to 75!

Oh hey 👀

Remember what it was like when you had a ton of energy, enjoyed testing your body physically and had plenty of support from your team mates?

We want you to feel like that again.
We know you may be thinking to yourself: "I'm not ready" or "I've tried everything and it doesn't work" or "it's not a good time".

But, there's never a good time is there....? Life will do it's best to distract you with deadlines and school drop-offs and commuting and kids sport and social engagements, but at some stage, you've got to take some time for you, so that you are better able to give time to everyone else.

Start by spending time at a place where the behaviours you desire are normal, encouraged and celebrated.
If you’re wanting to make some changes to improve your health and happiness, we’d love the opportunity to help you.

"I want to get back into shape, get leaner, get stronger but I don’t want to hurt myself.”
__
This is such a common thought process, and we totally get it!
A lot of our members have come to us with similar goals and concerns, sharing some hairy stories of previous fitness experiences, or the frustration of trying one thing after another in vain, in an effort to get over an injury.

Everyone wants to improve their strength, fitness and athleticism but no one is interested in crazy, unsustainable workouts, intimidating environments and unsupportive coaches and peers.

Lucky for you, teaching people how to train safely and move their body effectively is our specialty!
You'll always be under the watchful eye of our supportive and professional coaches at all times to be certain we're delivering a workout experience that is fun, challenging and safe.

Get started with us in a one on one setting, where the foundation is teaching and coaching in order to build confidence in your movement and comfort in understanding how to move your body safely and effectively NOW in order to finally build towards the fitness you want FOR LIFE.

We start every new NZ Fit member off with a conversation.

We learn about you, your goals, and your "why."
Sure, everyone wants to get stronger, get leaner, get 'fitter' but what do you want to do with those results? How will that affect the way you live your life? Can you see what that looks like if we pointed to it...? 😉

Once we know those things, we can then set the best plan of action for you to reach the healthy, active and adventurous life you've been wanting.

We understand what it feels like to do the same thing over and over and over again without getting the results you want... it's boring, frustrating, annoying, potentially devastating, humiliating, disappointing.

At NZ Fit, we focus on you and your goals, but just as importantly, we focus on the reality of long term consistent progress.
Once we know where you want to go, we can set a plan on how to get there. Our ongoing effort lies in constantly communicating, educating, inspiring and coaching you.

That doesn't happen at many gyms..... but it happens here.

How do we make exercise fun, but also fulfilling? Because if you can't create strategies to engage in fitness long term, all the fun in the world today doesn't matter.

If you're bored, burnt out or just plain uninspired to move your body, then you've GOT TO do something different!
- You need a program that is fun sure, but also challenging and progressive that excites you to take part in even though you know doing so will take you out of your comfort zone.
- You need coaches around you that care about your journey and hold you accountable to what you say you'll do.
- You need an environment full of positive, like minded people that you look forward to hanging out and training with. Ones that support and motivate you and expect you to do the same for them.

Each of our coach-led group classes are the perfect combination of skill, strength and conditioning workouts with plenty of high energy and positive influence to make certain that you leave our gym feeling BETTER than when you entered it and CONFIDENT you’re on the right track to a healthier, happier you.

We'll help you make working out not only enjoyable again, but a purposeful part of your life.
Start by reaching out to book a gym tour and a chat about your goals.

The CrossFit Games is a war of attrition for the fittest on Earth. Not only do the athletes have to survive multiple workouts and multiple days. But the workouts are often purposely designed to excessively overload movement patterns.
For example this year at the games, we had ring muscle ups followed by bar muscle ups (pull and more pulling), wallwalks and thrusters (push and more pushing), rope climbs and deadlifts (grip and more gripping).Doubling up on movements turns the workouts into a gruelling, grind. Survival of the most determined and resilient.

Which makes for a heck of a TEST, but very poor TRAINING.And that's fine, it's two different goals. Just make sure your gym is aligned with your goal.

Things we focus on at NZ Fit are:
- reps that suit the movement, eg. the majority of the time, something like burpees are programmed with low/moderate reps to keep your pace, movement quality & intensity high.

- non competing supersets, push and hinge, pull and squat etc. to allow more work to be performed, with less fatigue and faster recovery, ie. more bang for your buck each workout.

- non competing stimulus, eg. we don't do a ton of squats and then box jumps, we don't perform a lot of deadlifts, then make you hang on a bar for pullups. Again, a great test, but if your grip is so fried you can't do anymore work, then you're prevented from getting fitter!

Remember, no one would try to get smarter by just doing exams over and over, a lot of plain ol study is needed, with occasional exams to see where you're at. Your fitness should take the same approach.

Continuing on from our previous post, although we prescribe many variation of the sn**ch, we don't SQUAT sn**ch as a rule. This is the most technical variation, the best in the world (currently on stage at the Olympics) have been training from a very young age; most of us 'mature' athletes do not have the shoulder mobility required to perform this safely.

We don't want to miss out on all the other benefits though! Here's Shane performing an Overhead Lunge, so we've got a full depth squat, plus overhead stabilisation, so ticking all the boxes, BUT what's really cool, is the single limb variation actually INCREASES the demands of those positions, while also increasing the safety of the movement.

26/07/2021

The sn**ch is a highly technical and dynamic movement that is difficult to learn, especially if new to exercise or lacking mobility.
However, at its most basic, it’s a hip extension and an overhead press. This means we can train those qualities a dozen different ways for a dozen different kinds of people and abilities.
What’s great (and fun) is the learning and progression as we work through them and achieve more each time.

Getting stronger takes practice.
If your gym is only prescribing you max lifts, you’re not getting as strong (or as fit) as you could be.

Moderate reps (5-10) not only improve the mind muscle connection of less experienced lifters (0-2 years) but it’s simply more practice at doing it right

And with a higher metabolic cost (more puff, higher heart rate), it means more bang for your fitness buck.

29/06/2021

Chillier mornings mean more layers for the pre-workout catch ups!! 😉

Walking lunges, there's got to be some kind of life parallel here, as you finish one step, the discomfort eases, but the knowledge that you've just got to take another step does not. And so you take that step, and again, and again.

Benchmark testing this week!
It’s detrimental to spend too much time concerned with progress, but periodically checking in ensures you’re on the right track, as well as boosting morale.

Increasing strength is an important part of fitness, but increasing range of motion is an important part of health. Strive to move weight FURTHER vs just moving more weight.

11/06/2021

If you think lifting weights is intimidating, then what do you think about NOT being able to lift things...? Losing your independence and confidence to perform daily tasks sounds much more intimidating.

Big, bar bending squats and deadlifts are impressive, no doubt. But most of sport and life is performed on 1 leg at a time. Hence we train that way a lot!
Interestingly, even if you really prefer the two legged strength stuff, some single leg work will improve that for you too.

When was the last time you got upside down? If it's been a while, is it a confidence, strength or balance thing?
Good news, we can help with all of that!

Talking about cardio yesterday, many people have fat burning in mind when they do it. But did you ever think about the origin of the name?
Cardio-vascular exercise. Heart and lung exercise. We're making those organs stronger and healthier when we do cardio. Yes, some fat might be burned during this process, but it's not the main occurrence, nor our main aim.
