What if I am not physically fit?
Whether you haven’t exercised in years or you're a gym rat looking to break through a plateau, each program is tailored to suit your individual needs. Every move can be modified to suit your fitness level. You will always be wearing a heart rate monitor, and with each passing week you will actually “see” yourself getting healthier with a lower heart rate that enables you to withstand more strenuous exercises. So whether you are starting from the beginning or looking to shave off those last few stubborn pounds, CardioFIT is designed to fit your unique goals.
What is BMI and what is included in my Body Fat Analysis?
BMI stands for Body Mass Index. Simply speaking, it is a measure of your weight in relation to your height. A BMI between 18.5 and 24.9 is considered “normal” in most adults.
At the start of every program and every 30 days thereafter, you will receive a full Body Fat Analysis. A CardioFIT Austin trainer will go over your past history, any possible injuries, and your past and present relationship to health and fitness. We will then discuss your dreams for your body and set specific and measurable goals over the 90 day period. Every 30 days your trainer will weigh, measure and calculate your body fat percentage as well as lean body mass. As you go through the program, you will watch your body fat percentage fall and your lean body mass increase. We calculate these numbers every 30 days to give you a mirror as to how you have performed over the last four weeks, to motivate you to stay powerfully committed to the entire 90 days.
What do I need to bring with me to class each day?
You need a yoga mat, your heart rate monitor, at least 20 oz of water, running shoes, and comfortable clothes. And of course your passion and commitment to change your life!
Is there a refund policy?
If you are unable to attend camp due to circumstances out of your cotrol, we can offer you a refund if you notify us prior to your session start date; however, we will charge a $50 cancellation fee. After the session begins we can only give a credit towards the next session.
What will my child be doing in class?
CardioFIT KIDS programs focus on fitness and nutrition. CardioFIT Austin believes that knowledge is power - with the proper tools, kids will make good choices about their health. We will talk about nutrition in a fun, game-show style manner. We will always properly warm up prior to exercise and stretch afterwards, with emphasis placed on form. Each class will work on age-appropriate balance, coordination and strength-building exercises. Games, relay races and obstacle courses will be implemented, all the while emphasizing that exercise should be fun in order to make it a life-long commitment.
How is this like any other sports program?
Rather than a skill-based program, a CardioFIT KIDS class will focus on challenging every child to do their very best. Children are encouraged and motivated in a non-competitive, supportive environment. Overcoming obstacles in both fitness and life requires a great deal of inner strength, which will be a common discussion topic throughout the program. Games will be played emphasizing teamwork, judgement and cooperation. Kids will gain confidence in their own abilities and will be continually reminded that with determination and passion, they can accomplish any goal in life.
Will my six-year old be in a class with 10 and 12-year olds?
CardioFIT Austin has developed three different age-appropriate programs, designed for kids aged 5-8, 9-11 and 12-14. No matter their age, a CardioFIT KIDS participant will be continually challenged to try new activities, and build upon previous skills. As the younger kids learn the basics of nutrition, the older kids will learn how to become accountable with their food intake and their daily choices. Kids will advance at their own natural pace as they develop a solid foundation of balance, strength and coordination.
What will my child need to bring with them to class each day?
Please bring a water bottle, comfortable clothes and sneakers. No sandals, Crocs or flip flops! Please do not bring your own snacks to class, though occasionally we will all have snacks together while discussing nutrition. When registering your child for class, please communicate any necessary allergy or other health-related information.
