Welcome to the XC Thrillogy Fitness Team!!!!
It is inspiring that you want to regain your fitness and live a healthy lifestyle. We would love to help you along your journey by helping you to establish a fitness routine that is easily implemented.
The XC Thrillogy Fitness Team is a welcoming and encouraging group where we focus on a new lifestyle, not a short term program. We will be focused on being patient, will embrace your current level of fitness, and will develop a workout schedule that is manageable based on your life demands and believing in your dreams-objectives-lifestyle vision.
How long have desired this for yourself? Probably too long. We have extended our hand and now it is time to step out of your comfort zone and start this journey today.
Who are we?
Kyle Gilman will be leading the group. He is relatively new to living a healthy lifestyle and regaining his fitness as a runner. Kyle has lost over 230 pounds over the past 16 months. In November 2016, he recently completed a 43 mile trail event and completed the Longest Turkey Trot run/walking from Milwaukee to Chicago with 10 others. Kyle has dealt with many of the emotional, physical, and social issues associated with embracing a new lifestyle by living it one day at a time. He is committed to sharing his struggles (then and now), encouraging you, and holding you accountable when needed.
Brian Thomas will be coaching the group. As a runner for 43 years, a high school cross country and track coach, and a personal trainer, Brian will use his experience to develop workouts that are appropriate based on your current level of fitness and abilities in an encouraging environment that celebrates and builds on success.
What will a typical group workout look like?
Our workouts will be focused on the following:
1. Proper warm-up -- We will start every workout with a dynamic warm-up, meaning we will be actively moving different body parts to warm up the muscles and slowly increasing heart rate. We will modify these different warm-up drills as needed based on your ability and mobility.
2. Cardio -- The cardio portion of the workout will consist of brisk walking or walking/running and recovery. The duration of the brisk walking, walking/running, and recovery will be determined by your level of fitness and fitness goals.
3. Core development -- In order to avoid injuries, establish proper walking or running form, and reduce compensation issues, we will be developing the muscles in the trunk of your body (back, hips, rear, chest, and abs). Strengthening these core muscles through using a series of drills (modified as needed) will help you stay injury free and will enhance your overall strength.
Group workouts will be twice a week and will be both indoor and outdoor (weather permitting). Dates, locations, and times will be posted on the XC Thrillogy Fitness Team web page and on the XC Thrillogy Fitness Team Facebook page.
