Not normally ones to vary from our routines, Scott and I had the opportunity to try out a new gym recently. We've seen it before at the mall but we never ventured in until now! The gym is called YouFit and we were impressed as soon we walked in. It is a very open gym with tons of cardio equipment lining the outside wall and the weights and machines in front of the cardio equipment. The bright colors made the gym even more welcoming.
At first glance, you might think it's your typical gym but the YouFit gyms actually have a lot of unique features. Along with YouCoaches, they have a 30 minute express circuit workout so that you aren't completely lost if you are new to the gym or just getting back into the gym. We also loved the fact that the floors are made of recycled tires or Nike "grind" (recycled sneakers). The heating, cooling, water and power systems are all energy-efficient too. They actually strive to be the "greenest" gym in America by being dedicated to using recycled materials in their clubs.
Below is the workout that I did while I was at our local YouFit gym. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
TOTAL BODY WORKOUT CIRCUIT
30 Jumping Jacks
20 Bicep Curls (using light weight body bar)
30 Butt Kicks
20 Tricep Kickbacks (using lighter weight dumbbells)
10 Back Extensions (using machine or exercise ball)
30 second Wall Sit
30 second Plank
Repeat 2-3 times
The rest period will vary depending on your fitness level. Try to keep your heart rate up but also adjust to your fitness level, as always!
See if there is a YouFit near you and set up a time to visit with them!
P.S. I loved this poster we saw in the health club!
