Your Fitness Goals Fulfilled
Summer is here and you’re ready to hit the pool, the bike trails and the hills. However, jumping straight into new fitness routines can lead to injury and put the brakes on your summer plans. The expansive fitness club at RiverHouse 9 at Port Imperial will ensure you’re ready for whatever summer brings.
Most people don’t think about jumping on a bike until the weather is warm and the days are long. But biking uses a set of muscles we don’t normally use in our regular day-to-day lives. Without the proper warm-up period, you can risk getting “cyclists knee” from doing too much, too fast. RiverHouse 9’s fitness club is equipped with spin bikes connected to FitnessOnDemand so you can gradually increase your activity level and endurance and ensure your biking season lasts well into fall. Once you’ve reacquainted yourself with the spin bike, start exploring all the great classes offered: from scenic bike tours to energetic soundtrack inspired classes to hardcore athletic rides.
Amp up the results from your cardio with a healthy dose of weight training. Mixing up your routine with weight machines, free weights, the TRX station and body-weight exercises will ensure all your muscle groups are engaged preventing your workout from becoming stale and boring. Feeling intimidated? Start with the weight machines which are designed to intuitively guide your body to the right form. Set weights so that you can do 3 sets of 10-15 reps each. If you can easily do that last set, it’s time to up the weight level. If you need more movement in your routine, FitnessOnDemand has great workouts using the TRX station, kettle bells, weights and other equipment found within the RiverHouse 9 fitness club.
Stretch for Success
It’s easy to feel exhausted at the end of a workout and skip the cool-down. However, it’s important to ensure that you release the stress and strain that your body felt during the exercise process. Focus on stretching muscles will also ensure that you maintain the necessary flexibility to maximize your future workouts and minimize the chances of injury and setbacks. Check out this guide for 6 simple, effective post-workout stretches. Just taking 5-10 minutes can make all the difference in how you feel after your workout and how ready you’ll be for the next one!
A regular workout routine can benefit your life in so many ways. You can go enjoy a long bike ride or run throughout the NJ trail system thanks to your increased endurance.
