I had worked out regularly at gyms for several decades before joining Cypress Fitness, and I have a healthy diet so I managed to stay in pretty decent shape, but my workouts did not have a lot of variety and basically consisted of weights (mostly machines) and 30-minute steady state cardio with occasional high-intensity intervals when I felt inspired. I had a desk job and had never been coached on weightlifting technique, so I would develop minor injuries, aches and pains, and my workouts were not very exciting.
When I started 1 on 1 training and team training at Cypress, I realized that there was a lot more to maintaining a healthy body than what I was doing. Cypress’ philosophy is to coach functional training, meaning an exercise program that will help carry you through your day feeling good and accomplishing the tasks you want to do in a way that keeps your body healthy. I now have much better mobility and flexibility, and my core, which is the key to real strength (not bench presses and biceps curls) is so much stronger.
I feel great when I get up in the morning and I feel younger than I did 10 years ago. My workouts are no longer boring either. The variety of exercises and equipment that Cypress trainers have and use is amazing; I learn a new exercise, or variation virtually every time I work out with my trainer, and the trainers are great at stressing proper technique. The team classes are great motivators, both to showing up at the gym, and to participate with and keep up with friends in the class. It can be hard work but you get out of it what you put into it, and it definitely pays off. I am a very satisfied customer and highly recommend Cypress Fitness.
