Smart, Disciplined Infrared Fitness Training

Posted August 31, 2020

Fitness and discipline go hand in hand. You can’t experience a successful training program without discipline. If you are not willing to commit to discipline, then you will fail in your attempt to transform yourself into a person who lives with an active and fit lifestyle.

Discipline can be easier than you think, though, and can lay the groundwork for a better quality of life through fitness. The key is to find a smart program that encourages workout method discipline and makes it easy through the use of technology.

HOTWORX has made infrared training easy, accessible and disciplined through the use of its Burn Off App. This app allows members to set workout appointments based on a 24 hour schedule. It also enables users to sync with their Apple Watch or Fitbit to track calories burned during the HOTWORX workout and for the one hour calorie after-burn following the workout.

Discipline is also important with respect to workout consistency. There’s an unfortunate tendency for trainers to lose discipline when it comes to solid and consistent workout methods. Many trainers fail to even pre-plan for workouts, and fail to base their training on any method at all. Working out, like everything in life, yields more positive results when discipline is applied through method and consistency. The truly professional trainers understand workout method discipline. HOTWORX also understands the need for the practice of a disciplined, consistent workout method.

There are many different workout types for customers to choose from today, so it is important to find and only consider training methods that are based in discipline and consistency.

So, what does it mean for a training method to be based in discipline and consistency? A training method should stand for something and should have integrity as opposed to a haphazard approach like what is unwittingly being promoted by so many trainers in the industry today. The sad thing is the average fitness customer is influenced by these schizophrenic approaches to the point that they think it is actually good to do yoga, for example, a million different ways. One of the most successful workout methods ever conceived is Bikram yoga. Bikram never deviates from a 26 posture sequence with the exact same postures in the same order every workout, every time! This “sameness” to me equals saneness in training!

There are so many ways to progress with a single posture, or a single exercise.  For example, one might set a short term goal to make it through an eagle pose on each leg without losing balance. Or one might set the goal of holding a stretch by not bending the knees and holding the toes for an entire stretch. Every workout should be a practice to improve the execution of postures and exercises. But to make the workouts meaningful, there must be a standard for measurement. This is one reason why consistency of workouts is so important. This is why Bikram workouts are so effective and why the results are much better in contrast to the “let’s change our workout every time” approach. It takes discipline to remain consistent, but it is imperative if you want to achieve great results with your program.

The HOTWORX infrared training program values workout method integrity through consistency and discipline. A smart, disciplined approach to training in an infrared environment will yield the most results in the shortest amount of time, which is what we all want.
