Welcome to Free Fitness Gym
We specialize in High Intensity Interval Training Workouts to help you lose weight, tone up muscle groups and get in the best shape of your life. But don't worry if these sound too hard for your current fitness level because you can simply slow down each exercise in our fitness workouts to a level that agrees with you.
High Intensity Interval Training Workouts are becoming increasingly popular within the fitness industry because these fitness workouts can be completed in a relatively short space of time with maximum results.
High Intensity Interval Training Workouts will push you hard and fast and get muscles working that you never knew you had. When it comes to fitness training it is important to constantly change your training routine to keep the body guessing. If you do the same workout every session, then you will keep getting the same results because the body quickly adapts to the stresses it is put under.
We aim to produce a High Intensity Interval Training workout most days of the week, and each fitness workout will be different from the previous one. All of our fitness workouts are directed by Nick who is a qualified personal trainer with years of experience including training competitive Tri-athletes in a rehab sports specific physiotherapy clinic. Nick has spent many years running High Intensity Interval Training workouts for various military and non military Bootcamps across the UK, and also currently trains many personal training clients using High Intensity Interval Training Workouts.
High Intensity Interval Training workouts are not only great for being time effective but also are very effective at burning fat long after you have stopped working out. When you do a High intensity Interval Training workout your body is not able to get enough oxygen during periods of hard work. This creates a deficit of oxygen in the body. As a result after completing a High Intensity Interval Training workout your metabolism has to speed up to for many hours after working out to bring oxygen levels back to normal. This phenomena is known as EPOC (excess post-exercise oxygen consumption). The best way to take advantage of this is to introduce these short bouts of High Intensity Interval Training workouts into your weekly training regime.
High Intensity Interval Training helps to stimulate muscle building hormones and IGF-1. This creates the perfect situation for the body to build lean muscle mass. You will not get big like a body builder, instead you will develop lean toned muscles and an athletic physique. As well as the beneficial hormone response High Intensity Interval Training will also train the cardiovascular system and strengthen the heart. This will allow you to recover quicker after your fitness workout.
Helen who is a qualified nutritionist and current fitness trainer will feature in the majority of the High Intensity Interval Training workouts, She has trained with Nick for a few years now and has achieved a very good level of fitness through mainly High Intensity Interval Training workouts. The workouts that feature on our website are exactly the same workouts that Helen does for her fitness training. Most of our fitness workouts will last for 12 minutes but can be extended if you feel you have the energy. Helen will typically do two of these workouts back to back, so if you want to train exactly like she does then pick two fitness workouts from the list on the left and get stuck in. This will equate to a 30 minute workout if you include a water stop in between.
When it comes to High Intensity Interval Training Workouts, half an hour is all you need to do in order to get in fantastic shape. And best of all you can do these fitness workouts in the comfort of your own home with little or no equipment needed.
Far too many people go to the gym and do the same routine not just week in and week out, but year in and year out. And quite often people will stay for an hour or longer because they feel that this is what is required. 'Intelligent Training' is all about maximizing your time during a fitness workout. And this is really where High Intensity Interval Training workouts come into their own. High Intensity Interval Training Workouts are relatively quick workouts lasting up to half an hour, they are ever changing which helps to keep the body guessing as to what exercise is coming next, which forces muscles to keep adapting to the new stresses they are put under. The theory of 'Intelligent training' has been around for decades and is used by professional athletes and Arnold Schwarznegger has written many books detailing how 'Intelligent Training' separated him from his rivals. It really does work.
High Intensity Interval Training workouts can be adapted to suit your fitness level, so if you find our workouts too hard, then simply slow the exercises down a little until you feel like they are achievable. If you find our workouts too easy, then simply do the exercises at a faster pace, do another set of the exercises at the end of the workout, or do what Helen does and do two workouts back to back.
A huge benefit of High Intensity Interval Training workouts is that your fitness levels will soar very quickly. Your cardiovascular system will improve very fast and strength will increase relatively quickly as well. As fitness levels shoot through the roof, the body will start to strip down on unwanted fat supplies helping to show off nice toned muscle groups.
Nick has noticed during his years of training clients and within his own training regime, that High Intensity Interval Training workouts have some other amazing benefits. Typically men like to bulk up a little whilst looking athletic at the same time to show off their nice toned muscles. And women like to have an athletic appearance without looking too muscular or bulking up. High Intensity Interval Training will actually help both goals in both sexes although they are different goals completely. This is a simple fact based on Testosterone. Men have on average 40 times more testosterone in their bodies than women do. So when it comes to High Intensity Interval Training men will increase their muscle mass by quite a lot, and women due to lower testosterone levels will tone up but not bulk up in the same way a man will. So it really is a win win situation.
Diet will play a very important part in your High Intensity Interval Training workouts, and if you are looking to increase muscle mass then you will need to focus on a high protein diet. If you are looking to simply lose weight then just eat sensibly and control your portion sizes. And if you are looking to bulk up then you will need to go on a high protein and high calorie diet focusing on whole foods.
To compliment your training check out our nutrition blog which is written by Helen, who is a qualified Nutritionist. Fitness training should be followed by a healthy eating plan to maximise results.
Not all of our fitness workouts will be High Intensity Interval Training, we will also do some Kettlebell workouts, and some beginner workouts to try and encourage some people back into fitness.
All of our fitness workouts can be tweaked to suit your needs, and all you need to do is change the tempo of the particular exercise. A High Intensity Interval Training workout can very easily be changed into a relaxed workout by simply slowing down the exercises and doing less repetitions within the given time frame. Alternatively you can give yourself a longer rest between exercises to help you recover before going into the next exercise.
We hope you enjoy our fitness workouts and we would love to hear how you are getting on.
