New, elite military style workout pushes users beyond perceived limits
Cincinnati, Ohio, November 2, 2016—Global fitness solutions leader Escape Fitness is launching Battle Fit—an elite, military-style, functional fitness group training series that pushes users beyond perceived mental, physical and psychological limits to accelerate results.
Designed by former British Army officers on the physical and psychological building blocks of military training British soldiers use to meet challenges head-on with an absolute commitment to victory, Battle Fit catapults functional training to a whole new level with its 16-week series of structured 35-minute workouts using specially designed, innovative training equipment.
Through functional training Warm Ups, Battle Workouts and Operational Fitness Tests, participants perform everyday movements at high intensities inside traditional military fitness obstacle courses, battle preparation workouts and team drills.This gym-based group trainingdelivers quantitative physical results while forging mental toughness, teamwork and physical discipline in a safe, controlled environment.
The science behind Battle Fit is simple yet effective with injury-preventative exercises that are appropriately coached. In each session, trainers work through the Creatine Phosphate energy system and into lactic at every workstation--demanding 100% effort from each participant. Exercise increments—which happen in all three planes of motion (sagittal, frontal, transverse)—are no shorter than 45 seconds and no longer than 90 seconds to mitigate of the effects of lactic acid build-up and maximize time spent in the zone for increased strength, fat loss and muscle hypertrophy.
With participants working toward actual 100% capability, they increase athletic performance and enhance teamwork skills while becoming leaner, fitter, more flexible, mentally stronger and more confident.
“Battle Fit is for those clubs looking to foster camaraderie and offer an elite workout that improves athletic ability for members who crave novelty and want more,” said Matthew Januszek, co-founder, Escape Fitness. “And, unlike the intense military-style training popular today that sometimes can lead to injury, Battle Fit -- with its targeted motivation -- was designed for member safety while driving top-level athletic performance. This makes Battle Fit an excellent tool for member retention as well as trainer development and motivation.”
