What is Cross Training boot camp at Ultimate Fit Zone in Monmouth County?   “Cross-training in sports and fitness refers to the combining of exercises to work various parts of the body. Often one particular activity works certain muscle groups, but not others; cross-training aims to eliminate this.” –Wikipedia

When you participate in a cross training boot camp program such as ZONE 360 at Ultimate Fit Zone, you are not training in one particular style (weight lifting, running, high interval, etc), but rather a myriad of different training styles that are constantly varying to improve your fitness level across all planes.

Constantly Varied?

Our programming is different each day, i.e., ‘constantly varied.’  But what does this really mean?  Does this mean we are throwing random workouts together each day just to make you sweat?  NO.

When we say our workouts are constantly varied, we are referring to the intensity level, type of training involved, format of the workout, type of equipment used, energy output required, length of time training, muscles worked, etc.  Our boot camp workouts are written by hand, new, every single morning with a strategic goal in mind; your progress.  We vary our program enough to challenge you and to make it feel random and different,  but in reality, our program is always structured to ensure that each week you are working on and improving your strength, technique in performing certain exercises, short term max energy out put and long term endurance.

We do this with a variety of different exercises and equipment including barbells, dumbbells, boxes, TRX gravity straps, plyometrics, body weight movements, cardio drills, rowing machines, explosive power exercises and more.  The result is a well coordinated cross training program that feels different, but is structured for your success.

Some of the benefits of cross training include

  • improved athletic performance
  • increased strength and muscle tone
  • fat loss
  • increased energy level
  • increased endurance and stamina
  • lower blood pressure
