We all know getting—and staying— active is the key to maintaining a healthy lifestyle while improving our physical and mental well being. If you’re looking to challenge yourself, taking your workouts up a gear with our FloatFit classes can boost your athleticism to fine-tune your fitness, strength, and stamina. Let’s find out why athleticism is such an important part of your workout.
Athleticism – what’s in it for me?
While getting active is a great first step for anyone to take, like any other activity, the more you put into it, the more you’ll get out of it. By adding certain factors to your activities or workouts, you can boost your athleticism, giving you even greater benefits to improve your quality of life, including:
- Increasing your physical fitness and mental health
- Increasing your sports performance
- Delaying the ageing process
- Preparing for a longer, healthier life
- Making your day to day movement easier
So, what is athleticism?
Athleticism doesn’t just come down to one thing. It’s a combination of different components that you can build into your workouts to help improve and boost your overall fitness. Here are 10 key areas where our FloatFit HIIT classes tick all the right boxes to help improve your athleticism:
Increase your overall strength, as well as your core strength for improved posture, by performing specific bodyweight exercise reps.
Building your strength, power, and core strength will help you in most sports, giving you more pace and speed at crucial times.
Rapidly repeated, explosive exercises and movements like squat jumps help build power by building muscle strength.
