Is one better than the other?
This article is here to help bring attention to some facts surrounding cardio vs. strength training and hopefully motivate you to add strength training to your regular workout routine. First let’s define what is cardio and what is strength training: Cardio is any exercise or movement that focuses on elevating the heart rate by moving the body with activity such as power walking, running, bike riding, as well as stationary body weight exercises like jumping rope or running in place.
St. Patrick's Day Workout

Many women starting an exercise program are walking into a gym for the first time, or the first time in a very long time. How do they feel when they walk out? In many cases, they may walk out feeling defeated, incapable of keeping up, or even injured trying to keep up beyond their ability. What I love about Kaia is the commitment to making every woman feeling successful, every workout, no matter their fitness level.
Women who are new to exercise must be given exercises appropriate for just starting out. These exercises will prepare their joints for the heavier loads to come. The right exercises will provide stability and strength to the joints. The right exercises will improve awareness of the mechanics of movement and muscle activation. If given appropriate exercises, beginners will leave our classes not only injury free but feeling successful and prepped for the harder work to come. Basics before Burpees!

With a New Year comes LOTS of new resolutions. After spending the past year socially distant, learning new skills, connecting in new ways, many of us are ready to hit restart and refresh what the coming year will bring.
Did you know
the Statistics Brain 2017 survey of 1,129 American adults¹ found that the top category was “lose weight/healthier eating” at 21.4% of resolutions. For comparison, the next closest category was “life/self improvements” at 12.3%—so weight loss and healthier eating were by far the leading resolution in this survey?
