If you wish to gain muscle tone without the bulk I can help you achieve this, whereas if mass is important to you we will focus upon this goal instead. In achieving your goals I will create an exercise program for you that includes both resistance and cardiovascular training. I will present to you many options for each training type along the way to suite your training preferences and taste.
Reducing fat exposes the abdominal musculature. This may be influenced through healthy eating, cardiovascular training, and a balanced resistance training program. A balanced program will raise your metabolism eating away at the fat storage areas (utilizes fat for energy) such as the stomach, butt, and thighs. I will also teach you core exercises to improve both the function and strength of the abdominal muscles.
Learn the correct boxing technique to improve the quality of your workouts so you may reap greater fitness results from your efforts. I will teach you the boxing stance, movement, punch technique, combinations, how to use a boxing bag, pad work and more.

Learn the correct boxing technique to improve the quality of your fitness workouts. I will teach you the correct boxing stance, footwork, punch technique, combinations, how to use a boxing bag and more.
Circuits develop muscular and cardiovascular endurance for building lean, toned muscle.
Workouts consist of 3 to 6 exercises performed in succession with little to no rest between exercises.
Light weights and body-weight exercises are used with an even balance between push and pull exercises.
The workouts are time efficient requiring no more than 20 minutes in duration. You may bench mark your fitness by recording the time taken to complete a circuit.
Forming the core of your gym program – resistance training strengthens your bones, tendons, ligaments, connective tissue and builds lean muscle.
Balancing muscle groups improves posture and your mobility / flexibility. Because your muscle groups and joints are stretched throughout their full range of motion.
Weightlifting workouts build your max strength – allowing you to perform muscular endurance workouts like circuits easier.
Circuit training, boxing, running, swimming, skipping and bodyweight exercises like burpees improve your cardio.
High Intensity Interval Training (H.I.I.T) is great for improving your cardio endurance and burns fat faster than slower forms of exercise like jogging for extended periods of time.
HIIT also has positive effects on muscular strength and power gains.
For complete development of the core musculature workouts need to work the core through
2. Lateral Flexion
4. Hip Extension
My programs utilize exercises that target each of these different actions. In addition to a circuit training workout and weightlifting session – a couple short core workouts per week will adequately develop the core muscle groups.
