5 Physical Fitness Elements in Studio Novo

At Studio Novo you will definitely hit all 5 basic elements to physical fitness not just in a class but in each and every Move.

Physical Fitness is defined by the following five basic foundations:

1. CARDIORESPIRATORY ENDURANCE
(Cardiorespiratory Fitness): Cardiorespiratory endurance is the ability of the body’s circulatory and respiratory systems (heart and lungs) to supply fuel to the tissues and cells during sustained physical activity. To improve your cardiorespiratory endurance, train doing activities that keep your heart rate elevated at a safe level for a sustained length of time. Typically the aerobic system kicks in after 60 seconds of constant uninterrupted physical effort.

2. MUSCULAR STRENGTH
Muscular strength is the ability of the muscle to exert force during an activity. The key to making your muscles stronger is working them against resistance: weights, gravity, and/or springs. At Studio Novo, we work the body in counter-resistance to improve muscular strength.

3. MUSCULAR ENDURANCE
Muscular endurance is the ability of the muscle to continue to perform without fatigue. This is the ability for your body to keep working during continuous movement. Ironically, in order to perform without fatigue, you need to train the muscles to fatigue. Studio Novo trains the muscles to a threshold of intensity that will stimulate improvement.

4. BODY COMPOSITION
Body composition refers to the relative amount of muscle, fat, bone, and other vital parts of the body that make up the entire body. A person’s total body weight (what you see on the bathroom scale) may not change over time, but the bathroom scale does not assess how much of that body weight is fat and how much is lean mass (muscle, bone, and ligaments). Studio Novo promotes fat loss and lean muscle growth to improve the total body composition.

5. FLEXIBILITY
Flexibility is the range of motion around a joint. Good flexibility in the joints can improve postures and alignment as well as help prevent injuries through all stages of life. If you want to improve your flexibility, you must perform activities that lengthen the muscles. At Studio Novo, we work the muscles in length which improves flexibility.

In addition to these 5 basic components of Physical Fitness, it is important to consider 2 more:

CORE STRENGTH AND BALANCE
Core Strength is the ability for the body to stabilize during movement. It incorporates the abdominals, pelvis, lower back and diaphragm. Your balance is your ability to maintain your support with minimal sway. The torso is the body’s center of power, so the more strength and stability trained in this area, the better chances you will have in preventing injuries and maintaining good alignment and posture. Studio Novo focuses heavily on core stabilizing exercises and maintaining good form throughout each and every move.

MENTAL HEALTH
More and more research is coming out on the endless benefits of a healthy mind or a positive mind and its affect on the body. “The heaviest weight to lift is the weight of a negative mind.” But mental health is more than just positive thinking; it’s your self-esteem. How you really feel about yourself affects everything else in your life. People with good self-esteem have an abundance of confidence and are better at managing stress and avoiding self-destructive behaviors such as compulsive eating and so forth. Feeling great about yourself impacts your behavior which impacts your body composition. Most of the emails that I receive from the students are not only about how the training has changed their body but also how it has impacted their lives in a positive way.
