The LateralX Lets You Cross Train Like a Boss
This entry was posted on February 25, 2016.
You don’t have to be a professional athlete to compete in sports events in Louisiana. The state’s largest sporting competition for amateur athletes is the Governor’s Games, which has sports for kids and adults to participate in. The games last for seven months, and include sports like softball, taekwondo, boxing and more. Regardless of what sport you like, there should be an option for you to compete in, but you need to get your body ready first, and one way to do that is by cross training with the LateralX.
An Unusual Elliptical
The LateralX is more than an elliptical machine. This trainer has 10 planes of motion that your feet can move through, which constantly challenges your muscles, making a workout with the LateralX more efficient than with a basic elliptical. This machine concentrates on working the glutes, thighs and hips, but it also has handgrips that move to work the upper body. When compared to a standard elliptical, you could burn up to 27 percent more calories using the LateralX, which means that you can lose body fat faster.
Why Work the Lower Body
The lower body is essential for any exercise that requires weight bearing. Running, biking and walking all require strong lower bodies. By using the LateralX, you can improve your muscle tone and cardiovascular fitness levels, which will help you for any sport you are participating in. Do you have questions about the LateralX? Ask one of Fitness Expo Stores’ experts in person or try out the LateralX in one of the stores.
Start Training Now
The next Governor’s Games series starts next year in March, but it is never too early or too late to begin training for them. When you cross train with a LateralX, your body is challenged more, and you get better results and can recover faster because you are not constantly using the same muscle groups for your workout. With the pre-programed workouts on the LateralX, you can get the most out of the machine in the shortest amount of time. Get started on toning your body for your next sporting competition anywhere around the state of Louisiana.
