The Beasts Within

Here’s a look at the equipment designed to help transform your life, including High-Intensity Interval Training machines that burn more calories in less time! Short exercise periods of near max intensity followed by shortened rest periods challenge the body to its limits, leaving you superior results. Because of the designs off these workouts, the body’s need for oxygen is greater in post-exercise recovery, burning more calories even after your workout is complete!

Our newest piece of equipment is the StairMaster BoxMaster, a unique innovative training tool was developed in Australia.

BoxMaster can be used for any level of fitness. It is a combination of heavy bags and focus pads for striking workouts. The BoxMaster pads have been arranged to replicate the different angles associated with each type of punch. This allows you to throw any punch or any combination of punches at any time. The Boxmaster builds both your endurance for short burst activity, as well as prolonged stamina. It also builds a strong core, powerful upper body, and strong conditioned legs. The precise trained motions in boxing increases coordination as well as mobility! It will aide in weight loss and burn calories like you have never experienced before! It is non-intimidating and ideal for people who have never tried boxing before.

The BoxMaster is like having a partner holding the pads for you to hit, without actually having a person there. Each pad has enough flexibility built in to allow you to hit it with as little risk of injury as possible.

One of the cool things about the BoxMaster is that the type of workout you can do with it is limitless. You can hit for power, work on your striking speed, focus on combos from different angles, or even mix in kicks with your combos. In addition, the height of the pads is adjustable, allowing people from heights of 5’0” to 6’10” to enjoy boxing workouts.

Another great thing about this thing is that it is designed with beginners and experts alike. Because the pads are designed to be as forgiving as possible, you don’t have to be an expert striker to get in a good workout and/or some pad work.

While novices will certainly enjoy the cardio and strength-building benefits of using the BoxMaster, the device is also a fantastic piece of workout equipment for experts. Using it is like training with a 12-handed pad holder. Being able to pound out combos from 12 different spots at every instant allows you to quickly see improvement in your striking accuracy, speed and power.

Quick mini-circuits with our Bionic Body kettlebells activate and tone more than 600 muscles, keep you heart-rate up and improve your cardio, increase your metabolic rate and burn more fat while at rest, keep your workouts fun and interesting, and helps exercisers get better results due to the after-burn. Long drawn-out workouts are not good for the hormonal system and are usually not sustainable over time.

The best way to increase your metabolism is to build and add muscle tone to your body. The more active muscle mass you have the more energy it uses to survive.

Muscle loves using up energy but your body hates it so you will always have to work hard to maintain muscle mass.

Workouts at Choices Fitness Studio — particularly the kettlebell mini-circuits — use the human body’s six essential movement patterns: the hip hinge, the squat, the lunge, the push, the pull and core activation.

Basically, all human movements can be put in one or more of these categories. For example, climbing stairs goes into the lunge category, and getting up and down from a chair is a squat. Picking a box off the floor is a hip hinge. Strengthening these movements help people in everyday life, especially as they age. And, each movement activates 100’s of muscles at the same time. The more muscles you use the more calories you burn and the quicker you add tone and definition to your body.
