CARDIO

cadio

Your face is dripping. Your fight-or-flight response has kicked in. Here’s how your body benefits when you push it to the limit. Oxygen is the ingredient muscles need to convert carbs and fat into fuel for muscles. The harder you go, the more oxygen it takes to remove carbon dioxide, a waste product made by muscles. To get more air, you start breathing faster, going from 12 to 15 breaths a minute at rest to up to 35 to 45 at max effort levels. Tell yourself it’s all good because the harder you go at it, the faster you’ll burn off calories.

WEIGHT TRAINING

WEIGHT TRAINING

No disrespect to cardio, but if you want to blast fat, get in shape, and rock everything that comes your way—both in and out of the gym—strength training is where it’s at. Here’s why. Forget that “fat-burning” zone on the treadmill, strength training is better at helping people lose belly fat compared with cardio. While aerobic exercise burns both fat and muscle, weight lifting burns almost exclusively fat. Your bones also become stronger and more dense. Stronger muscles mean better performance—period.

STRETCHING

STRETCHING

A quick stretch before you sweat has its benefits throughout your workout—it primes cold muscles for the exercises ahead, increases your range of motion and flexibility during the workout, and aids in the recovery process well after you’re done huffing and puffing. Skip those stretches and you not only put yourself at risk for tearing a stiff muscle, but you won’t see the results you should. We’re not just talking about cardio, either—this goes for all your grueling workouts across the board.

The energy of the studio is intoxicating – very empowering and uplifting. – Kristy K.

Michael and Irene are not only incredible instructors they make sure we have fun while we work. If you like good music and are not afraid to sweat, smile and slim down …You need to be here! – Lauren B.

If you want to physically challenge yourself to get your butt into shape, this is the place for you.  Your first time will be a little humbling, but it will get addictive.  It’s fun, it’ll make you sweat (I mean, SWEAT!), and best of all…you’ll just FEEL better. – Gina J.

REAL TALK….”DRENCHED” IS TRULY INCREDIBLE!! I can’t front, I was intimidated as hell as a FIRST TIMER when I walked in and stood out like a big ass 6’6 OUT OF SHAPE sore thumb in a sea of beautiful women of all shapes and sizes. Not a lot of guys in there until Mr. Johnson showed up and was GETTIN IT IN. Ervin was my inspiration to finish the class. Not often do you get to workout with one of your heroes.  Michael Blanks is great, very friendly and I felt extremely welcome. All the ladies were very pleasant and gave smiles of encouragement.  I didn’t have all the steps together, but as long as you keep moving, you will be fine. Work at your own pace. There is no hard pressure to keep up.  THEY CALL IT DRENCHED FOR A REASON!!  I’LL BE BACK!! – Nile E.

I thought I was in decent shape until I came to this class. This class was AH-MAZING!!! Great music and a great workout team. It was very encouraging. Even though I have a ways to go in terms of keeping up with the class I will be back.  Thsi will definitely get you in the right shape! The music and the instructors in itself will keep you going. Great atmosphere overall. – Lindsay S.

Great workout…it lives up to its reputation. The trainers are great and get to know their clients and their respective training needs. Good environment. – Priscilla S.

I hate the gym!  and dislike hiking. even when i had a personal trainer, nothing would motivate me to exercise.

I gave Drenched a try and the music alone is what did it to keep me going back. I finally found something that works! i’ve seen huge results! Its tough to keep up at times but they push to keep going. – Fiona M.

Good for the Mind

Fitness is good for your body but it’s great for your mind too. Research has shown that exercise releases chemicals in your brain that make you feel good – boosting your self-esteem, helping you concentrate as well as sleep, look and feel better. Offering you the chance to take a well-deserved break from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
