Move More – Mixing up your exercise
Muscle is more metabolically active than fat, and building muscle can help increase your metabolism. This means you will burn more calories each day, even at rest. Lifting weights and strength training in general will also help you retain muscle and combat the drop in metabolism that can occur if you are dieting. Aerobic exercise is also an effective way to burn calories. You should aim to do at least 150 minutes of aerobic activity, such as walking, cycling and swimming, a week. Last but not least, shorter, high-intensity bouts of exercise do more to spike metabolism and burn fat than longer, less intense sessions.
Bottom line is that mixing up your exercise routine, and adding in a few high-intensity workouts, can boost your metabolism and help you burn fat. All these options are available in the club, just make sure you use them or ask us to help you setup your training plan.
