This article has been written by Personal Trainer and Tao Nutrition Ambasador, Jess. If you don’t yet know about this superwomen- click here

As a Personal Trainer that has been training myself and clients for 11 years I have tried and tested a lot of different methods of training.

I truly believe that not only should we look amazing but feel and perform just as good!!

So many women, men and young adults these days are all too caught up in the aesthetics of fitness and this makes for a very unhealthy fitness society!

Obviously if you are training for a specific sporting event you are going to condition your body purely to perform the best it can for that particular sport, but 85% of people in a gym environment are training for weight loss, weight management, muscle gain or to feel and look good.

They do these mundane gym routines which will build muscle but won’t create any functional strength for their health or well-being.

I believe that I have a great method for training that will bring functional strength, Cardiovascular Fitness and endurance and also the aesthetics 99% of our society crave.

So what is this method?

It is a combination of Metobolical, Isolation and Strength Training.


What does that mean?

Well metobolical training is completing structural and compound exercises with little rest in between exercises in an effort to maximize calorie burn and increase metabolic rate during and after the workout. FYI, your metabolism (aka metabolic rate) is how many calories your body burns at rest.

Isolation training – Take the biceps curl for example. While we think that this most basic isolation movement only works the biceps, many muscles in your hands, forearms, shoulders, core and back also play a role. With that being said, isolation movements, more than compound exercises, place an emphasis on a single muscle.

Strength training is a type of physical exercise specializing in the use of resistance to induce muscular contraction which builds the strength, anaerobic endurance, and size of skeletal muscles.

Put them all together and what a great combination and think of the benefits that is going to bring your new found gym program.
