For our PUSH community

For our PUSH community – or even those in other HIIT-style gym programs – you’ve hopefully seen significant improvements in your fitness levels on many physical fronts. However, I would like to emphasize that PUSH or your gym program is only one piece of the puzzle.

We have this obsession: That our lives revolve around timing. For example, people will say, “I did my three workouts this week. I am good to go.”

Instead, I like to look on a bigger scale – a 10-day plan. I prefer doing some sort of physical exercise 9 out of 10 days. Sometimes, my rest days are forced upon me, due to work or personal life. Still, the goal remains: 9 out of 10. These routines can include a HIIT workout, an extra long walk, a bike ride, yoga, sports like skiing and hiking, etc. What I am trying to say: The HIIT workouts we offer should only make up one portion of your fitness lifestyle, so more needs to be done in order to achieve your fitness goals — or even just to maintain your current fitness level. Doing the minimum is not enough for so many reasons — from a cellular level to your usual daily activities and energy levels.

On the other hand, we haven’t yet talked about food and nutrition. We can dive into this topic later, but, if you aren’t managing a solid nutrition plan – whether intermittent fasting, keto or a host of other meal plans – some of the exercise may not help that much.
