BALANCE

Exercise is a touchstone for achieving a variety of positive life goals.  Exercise has been proven to be good for us in a variety of ways. We are fully aware that exercise is a necessary component to our overall well-being… yet we often neglect our regular exercise routine. The decision to neglect exercise reflects an “out of balance” condition.

Recognizing this condition and dealing with the root causes is critical to achieving our potential.  Our core philosophy is that balance is achieved when we analyze our decisions, recognize the consequences of our decisions, and train ourselves to make more positive decisions around an active lifestyle.  Executing our realistic and simple 1-2-3 Strategy will train you to achieve balance in your fitness which can translate to better balance in your life. Our 1-2-3 Strategy is your weekly plan to:

1 Day To Develop Your Nutrition Plan for the Week

  • Fuel your metabolism by eating small protein-based snacks between meals.
  • Use good portion control.
  • Make consistent choices and take out the guess-work from meal to meal.

2 Days Per Week of Strength Training

  • Always lift with good posture.
  • Make your body your machine and hit big muscle groups first.
  • Train optimally:  Something is better than nothing.

3 Days Per Week of Cardiovascular Fitness Training

  • 20 minutes of continuous exercise for benefits to cardiac tissue.
  • 40-60 minutes for weight loss.
  • Vary the intensity of cardio workouts and always have one “easy” day per week.

ACCOUNTABILITY

If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it, and if you don’t manage it, you are accountable to nobody.  This is a recipe for failure.  Blaze Fitness works with you to create a personal accountability program based on our professional assessment of your current state of fitness and nutrition habits.  By carefully assessing your current state, we can create a personalized plan to move you closer to your desired goals and give you a set of measurements and objectives to keep you personally accountable.

Your Personal Accountability Program will consist of:

  • A written assessment of your fitness and nutrition habits
  • A customized nutrition plan designed to help you achieve your desired goals
  • A fitness program designed around your personal needs consisting of either:
    • Personal Training – Individualized instruction to teach the core philosophies, principles, and movements needed for your fitness success.
    • Group Training – Using the core capabilities in a group training environment to provide camaraderie and additional accountability for your fitness needs
    • Team Training – Team training is the ideal goal of the Blaze Fitness model.   Team training provides accountability not only to a coach but also to a team of individuals who are networked and supportive to one another, culturing a community of like-minded individuals with common purpose.

Our ultimate goal at Blaze Fitness is to provide you tools that empower you to build a lifelong fitness habit.  You will understand the how and why for all of our tools and techniques and will feel confident that you can be “self-powered” to achieve your full human potential.  We work diligently with you to build a skill set and belief system for life that permeates what you do inside and outside of the gym.

With the real benefit of being able to share and teach these skills to others, you can realize your true human potential and spread the message of self-care!
