Train like an athlete for optimal fitness

If you want to get in the best shape of your life you need to train like an athlete for optimal fitness. Training like an athlete will take your fitness level to new heights that you just won’t experience with the average training program.

Athletes train for power, speed, agility, coordination, balance, strength and endurance. Imagine bringing this intensity and overall conditioning to your workout. This type of training just doesn???t happen with the average trainer.?? If you take a look at the top athletes in professional sports most of them have lean, powerful physiques. Their training styles are unique.

You won’t find top athletes sitting on a bike and then doing your standard circuit training exercises in the weight room. Their full workout routine includes training for everything they need to optimize their performance in sport. Exercises for power include many different types of plyometric jumping drills. They’ll work on speed through acceleration and deceleration drills. Coordination involves moving your body in multiple planes with moving objects coming at you. This is key to all sports and is helpful in everyday life as well.

Balance of course is key to any sport as athletes cannot execute their movements properly without being in a balanced position. Strength is also important in order to fend off or move through opponents. Finally, endurance is essential for those times when an athlete must endure a longer shift than normal and still compete at a high level.

The average person should keep all of these key components in mind when designing their own workout routine. There is an athlete in all of us and we could use all of these attributes in being successful in our daily lives.

Cardio Blast in the Dragons Den

Cardio Blast in the Dragons Den

Cardio Blast in the Dragons Den

Cardio Blast in the Dragons Den! Cardio Blast President and Founder Alex K recently found himself in the Dragons Den to film a segment for the hit CBC show. The online fitness pro describes the experience as being one of the coolest things he has done in his life.

“I got a call last Tuesday from the Dragons Den producer saying we want you to fly to Toronto and come film on Sunday morning” said Alex K. This didn’t leave him a lot of time to prepare. “I had Wednesday and Thursday to book flights and hotels & prepare my presentation and props knowing that once I got to Toronto there wouldn’t be a lot of time for last minute changes.”

Once in Toronto there was one day to prepare and then Alex K had to be at the CBC studio at 6:45am on Sunday morning. “Getting up at 5:00am on Sunday morning wouldn’t have been so bad except my body was on Pacific time which meant I was waking up at 2:00am. This meant very little sleep for what I would consider to be the biggest presentation of my life.” said Alex K.

“Being in the Dragons Den was kind of surreal. I got to talk to and present the business model to Jim Treliving, Kevin O’Leary, Bruce Coxon, David Chilton and Arlene Dickinson. These are the same people I watch every week on the hit CBC show. It was a great experience just to be in the presence of these fabulous entrepreneurs.”

Alex K isn’t allow to disclose the results of the show to anyone until after the show airs. “I was filming for the fall season so it will be a little ways away before the pitch hits the air.” is an online workout program where users get a new online workout every week plus a full 50 page meal plan and fitness tracker for the low cost of $19.99 per month.

The Future of Fitness

The future of fitness

The future of fitness

The future of fitness is exciting and the delivery of fitness to the consumer is changing as we speak. Whereas most home fitness products are currently delivered via DVD to the consumer, in the future, fitness products will be delivered via online streaming video.

Cardio Blast founder Alex K, began to envision this future two years ago when he was trying to figure out a way to bring the Cardio Blast brand of fitness to the world. Cardio Blast believes that sports/sports based training, great lifestyle habits and excellent eating can all make us healthier, happier and more productive in society. We see the difference these make in the lives of our participants and know it can be of benefit to everyone.

Until now this philosophy has only been available to people able to directly train with the company???s founder, Alex K. However, the company vision has now expanded to the entire world with Through our online brand, we are bringing health and wellness to the world like never seen before. Online workouts, meal plans/tracking and fitness tracking all in one location. Our goal is to bring this all at a low cost to the consumer on a small monthly subscription fee. We want to bring health and fitness to the world to help everyone to live and perform to their full potential.

The vision for Cardio Blast is to change the way the fitness world delivers it products to consumers. We think it is inefficient for consumers to order their fitness products/videos and have to wait for them to arrive in the mail. We live in an instant world and if the consumer is ready to purchase and use a fitness product they should get instant access to the product says founder Alex K. When a customer signs up for our program they can log in immediately and do a workout right then. They also get immediate access to the meal plan and fitness tracker which helps them immediately towards achieving their goals. We are very quickly becoming a virtual world and with you can take your workouts anywhere as long as you have online access.
