Whether you're new to exercising or trying to get back in the game, there are many reasons to choose a Las Vegas personal trainer to help jump-start your journey. If you're still on the fence as to whether to go it alone or with a professional, consider these points:
According to the CDC, drowning is the top cause of accidental death for children ages 1 – 4. It is responsible for about 4,000 deaths in the U.S. each year. Teaching young children how to swim and be safe around water can help reduce these numbers. Swimming lessons will teach them how to swim while also educating them on pool safety and common hazards to avoid.
If you want to lose weight, improve your health or boost your overall resting metabolic rate, high-intensity interval training (HIIT) can help you accomplish all of these goals and more. Read on to learn exactly what HIIT is, how it benefits your body, and why it’s important to find a fitness center in Las Vegas that offers programs incorporating this kind of exercise.
When it comes to working out, many people have two different schools of thought. People who want to lose weight often opt for cardio workouts for fear strength training will add to their weight and cause them to bulk up. People who want a toned physique sometimes steer clear of cardio because they think it'll compromise their muscle mass. This begs the question: when you go to a Las Vegas gym, should you be combining strength and cardio, or would it be wiser to stick to the routine that works better for your fitness goals?
Sometimes it's just a little too easy to hit that snooze button on the alarm clock or stay in bed for an all-weekend marathon of your favorite TV show. Finding the motivation to workout can be difficult – which is why you should explore group fitness classes at the Y. Group fitness classes have been proven to give people the motivation they need to not only lace up and show up, but also achieve their fitness goals.
Keeping active and staying in shape is important for everyone regardless of their age, but so is time spent with family. At the YMCA of Southern Nevada, we have a wide variety of family fitness options and amenities for kids, parents and senior citizens.
