Physical fitness system developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates, drawing inspiration from Yoga and Do-in. L’Andana suggests open-air sessions, under the shade of the maritime pines: this workout will rebalance the energy and reduce pain due to incorrect posture.
This is a particular walk which includes the use of specially designed poles and can be practised throughout the year. Easy and enjoyable, Nordic walkers use the whole body, not only their legs!
CARDIO WORK OUT
Cardio exercise uses large muscle movement over a sustained period of time keeping your heart rate to at least 50% of its maximum level. Your heart is a muscle, therefore training makes it stronger. A stronger cardio-vascular system means more capillaries delivering more oxygen to cells in your muscles. This enables your cells to burn more fat during both exercise and inactivity.
Functional training attempts to adapt or develop exercises which allow individuals to perform the activities of daily life more easily and without injuries. Every training session must be tailored to each individual, taking into consideration objectives and your state of health, including presence or history of injury. An assessment should be performed to help guide exercise selection and training load.
L’ANDANA BOOT CAMP
“Boot Camp” training commences with dynamic stretching and running, followed by a wide variety of exercises, including weight (and kettlebell) lifting, TRX straps, push-ups / situps, and various kinds of intense explosive routines. Sessions usually end with stretching. Many other exercises with weights and/or body weight, similar to Cross Fit, are added in order to burn fat, increase cardiovascular efficiency and strength.
Boxing fitness training is an excellent way to get a great cardio workout. Boxing is considered one of the best exercises possible as it involves the entire body. This discipline is beneficial for the cardiovascular system and also as training for beginners as it burns a lot of calories and is an excellent form of training which leads to overall well-being.
