Why Choose Us?
Busy Body offers a very high level of professionalism, and will provide you with all the information and tools you need to get in the best shape of your life. We operate independent to a gym, and the private studio environment ensures that it’s all about you!
Strength and core conditioning
The point of difference in the strength component that we offer is to provide a full body workout, using the principle of progressive overload, no more frequently than once per week and in a 30-45 minute timeframe (also known as the “abbreviated training” method).
The reason for this is to allow exercises to be kept inside the explosive “phosphate energy system”, in which maximum power is generated by the body for up to 10 seconds at a time. This type of training is incredibly efficient for building, toning and shaping muscle. This energy system, however, is limited in its effectiveness over time and for maximum benefit sessions should be conducted in a shortened timeframe. 30-45 minute strength training sessions are a good balance between using this powerful energy system whilst working all the major muscle groups. The benefits of a more productive workout – in half the time of conventional programs – are easy to imagine!
Also, many strength programs do not maximise the results due to a lack of sufficient recovery time between workouts. For experienced strength trainers, muscle recovery and growth is still occurring up to two or even three weeks after the initial training session! However, best results for the majority of the population are achieved by completing ONE strength session per week. Many scientific studies have verified this method as the most affective way to gain strength and muscle. Gone are the days of 3-5 weekly strength sessions. How great is that!?
Cardio blasting sessions
For cardio sessions, Busy Body will follow the philosophy of “long slow training = long slow results” to achieve your individual health and fitness goals. These sessions will focus on power, speed, agility, endurance – or any combination as required. Using a “Perceived Rate of Exertion” (PRE) scale, the intensity level will be raised to 8/10 or higher, so provide the maximum benefit to your fitness levels and metabolic rate. Because our bodies are very adaptable machines, these cardio sessions will be continually varied and progressed. This also keeps the sessions fun! And lets be honest, the more fun we make our exercises, the easier it is!
