Saturday’s HIIT Circuit Boot Camp Highlights!

The Saturday HIIT Circuit boot camp workouts at our Monmouth County gym are always fun and full of energy! This Saturday was no different as we tackled the fireman’s carry with the heavy bag for the first time! Members either had to carry or drag the bag for four :30 rounds. There were two different bags to try, one being a little heavier. It was a lot of fun watching people hoist the bag up with a victory smile! We also did a lot of TRX training, some great strength and resistance work and of course..two rounds of calorie burning Tabata to really get that heart rate going! Check out the highlight reel below!

Ultimate Fit Zone opened its doors in 2012 as a Cross Training and Circuit Boot camp gym in Monmouth County. We offer HIIT workouts in three different formats; ZONE 360, IT 360 and HEAT.

ZONE 360 is our hallmark cross training workout program. This program is based on the method and style of CrossFit training BUT we de-emphasize heavy weight and instead focus on longer, intense workouts. For those that want to incorporate the heavy weights- don’t worry- we offer that too. It’s customizable for any fitness level and we have an excellent beginner program to educate you on the program and ease you into the new workout routine.

IT 360 is our Interval Training circuit workout (check out video above). We cycle through different circuits of timed intervals which bring our heart rate up and down for maximum fat burning effectiveness!

HEAT is our unique program created by our personal trainer and fitness coach, Bonnie. This workout is very high energy- lots of body weight movements (think burpees, squats, pushups) combined with light weight/high rep strength exercises with light dumbbells. Fun music- lots of energy. Don’t miss this calorie burning workout!

Women Dominate Monmouth County Boot Camp Workout

Monday’s ‘911’ Cross Training boot camp workout was dominated by the women! Ranging in age from early twenties to early 60s (!) the women showed up and worked fiercely to finish the long workout!

It was a day of many ‘firsts’ for the cross training women who tackled 2,000 meters worth of rowing, 50 push-ups, 50 butter fly sit-ups, 50 pull-ups and 50 barbell push presses. For several women it was their first attempt at band assisted pull-ups on the rig!

The arduous workout took roughly 27-33 minutes to complete (each woman achieving their own personal time) and targeted every muscle in the body with high repetitions and a true test of cardiovascular endurance. From rowing to pushups, to setups to pull-ups and barbell presses, this comprehensive routine activated muscles from the every part of the body, calling upon thousands of nerve cells to be stimulated with compound movements and a strong showing of physical and mental toughness.

“I think it’s important for women to be strong,” says Co-Owner and Fitness Coach Stacey Albert. “Since the dawn of time women have been viewed as the weaker sex. It’s time to show we can be strong not just physically, but mentally too.”

“The beauty of cross training is that it takes just as much mental acuity as it does physical strength. Pacing yourself. Strategizing the workout. Mentally talking yourself through the fatigue to finish,” she adds.

Ultimate Fit Zone is a Cross Training and Circuit Boot Camp gym in Monmouth County serving men and women of all fitness levels. The program teaches goal setting, strength training, cardiovascular endurance and spirited team and individual camaraderie in a workout setting. The gym is owned by husband and wife fitness team Edward and Stacey Albert. Eddie is a former body builder and long time personal trainer in the NJ area. Stacey is a fitness coach, cross training enthusiast and Nutritionist.

Barbell Workouts Are Superior For Getting Stronger

Ultimate Fit Zone, Monmouth County, NJ

There’s a reason why CrossFit athletes are some of the strongest athletes in the world, they do a lot of barbell work. Many strength training experts agree, if you want to get stronger, one of the best tools in your toolbox is the barbell. Compound lifts (multi-joint exercises) can produce impressive results, and traditionally they are performed with a barbell (as with any fitness training however, modifications can be made to work with dumbbells, kettle bells, etc). Compound lifts require work from many different muscles working together but moving in different patterns. This stimulates nerve cells, which is all a part of getting stronger.

A simple barbell push press will activate your legs, core and shoulders. Whereas a traditional press will largely activate the shoulders with some core. Not to say that one is better, they are just different.

For strictly isolating muscles, traditional movements are best, especially with dumbbells where each side of the body must do its own work and can’t rely on the other. For overall muscle training and working your cardiovascular system as well, CrossFit has the right idea with the barbell movements and cardio work.

At our Monmouth County cross training gym, we incorporate the barbell exercises into high intensity workouts that can last anywhere from 20 to 40 minutes. The goal is to increase cardiovascular endurance, increase strength, fine tune skills such as balance and explosive power and of course, build lean muscle tissue.

It’s the high rep count of these cross training workouts combined with the intense cardio (jumping rope, rowing, running, etc) that really produces changes in the body. Combined with the right diet, these are the workouts that will start showing you results in the mirror much faster. You are knocking out strength and cardio in one condensed workout. I always like to add at least 2-3 traditional lifting sessions in each week as well, for isolated muscle targeting. This accelerates strength building and also muscle development.

If you are interested in trying a cross training program, please send us an email or text us at 732-757-7944. You never know what you can do until you try.

Weight Loss Wonder: Boot Camp Battle Ropes Burn Calories and Fat

Expert personal trainer in Monmouth County, Edward Albert, talks about the weight loss effect of boot camp battle ropes at his cross training gym in NJ

best-personal-trainer-njAs a personal trainer and boot camp coach, Edward Albert knows how to create high intensity workouts that blast fat, torch calories and help build lean muscle.  The trifecta of weight loss!  If you’ve been to the IT 360 workouts at Ultimate Fit Zone, you’ve seen participants doing some pretty cool stuff like sled pushing, tire flipping, jumping rope, lifting dumbbells and of course- battle ropes.

These specially made ropes can challenge your cardio routine in a way that no other machine or piece of equipment can.  They can help you build lean muscle tissue, burn calories, met excess fat away, increase your cardio endurance, improve your explosive power and more.  Plus, they are a low-impact aerobic exercise making this a great choice for anyone with impact restrictions on joints.

Participants of the IT 360 boot camp in Monmouth County like the efficiency of the workouts.  Many of the exercises, like the battle ropes, work multiple muscles at once.  Tire flipping, kettle bell swinging and sled pushing, to name a few, engage so many muscles from head to toe.  It’s a nice change up for people who need a break from doing stagnant bicep curls and then moving on to isolate the next muscle.  Plus you can get more done in less time.

Battle ropes can work your legs, shoulders, biceps, abs…all you have to do is adjust your stance and rope movement to target muscles differently.

Circuit Training Boot Camp- Best For Weight Loss

At UFZ in Monmouth County, the interval training boot camp class, changes format and exercises every time members come to workout, keeping the workout fresh and exciting. Personal Trainer Eddie Albert writes all of the programming himself, keeping things laser focused to his clientele and the audience they serve.  Eddie writes up a mix of dumbbell, kettle bell, and body weight exercises at the different circuits as well as cardio stations that may include jumping rope, rowing, running and more.
