Train Smart to Train Hard at UN1T

Posted 19th Feb 2019

Plan your perfect week at UN1T

Strength, cardio and mobility – the three pillars of what makes up UN1T. Our classes focus on the basics: building strength, muscular endurance and mobility, and our goal is to bring back team conditioning workouts to help people improve their mental state, physical health and overall wellbeing.

Every day, our coaches take our athletes through a new programme that’s been expertly designed to push you to your limits and help challenge you both mentally and physically. In every class, you’ll leave feeling stronger, faster and fitter and an all round better athlete.

So, what’s the perfect week at UN1T look like?

Taking in the importance of rest and mobility, we encourage our athletes to design their week around their goals. We’ve designed three different weeks of classes, depending on your goal:

Build muscle and strength – 3 strength, 1 cardio and 1 yoga

Although you might be on the gains train, training your body is all about balance. A complete week should look at resistance training as well as cardiovascular training to. A complete exercise programme is all about balance.

Fat loss – 2 strength, 2 cardio, 1 yoga

If you’re training to lose fat, you can add in an additional cardio session, but don’t forget the importance of strength training. Strength training continues to burn calories even after your workout is finished, and it will help you keep the muscle and strength you’ve worked so hard to gain.

Endurance training  – 3 strength, 1 cardio, 2 run club, 1 yoga

Training for a big race or run? We love a challenge at UN1T, and our classes are designed to help you both in and out of the studio, whatever your next big event is. In this case, if you’re training for a 10k or marathon, we suggest:

Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday

These are just some examples of how you can design your perfect week at UN1T. And remember, your training should be fuelled by the right food to help support your goals. If you have any questions about nutrition or planning your week at UN1T, get in touch with one of our coaches!
