At ECA, we understand that everyone has different lifestyles, fitness backgrounds, and preferred methods of exercise. Regardless of those differences from person to person, there is one thing that remains constant in all our fitness programs: our 5 Components of Fitness. Each one of these components is individualized to ensure our members achieve results and create a long-lasting, healthy lifestyle.
The first component is proper nutrition. Nutrition is 75-80% of your success when it comes to changing your body composition, did you know that? It is also important to eat the right percentages of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats so you have good energy and lose body fat.
These percentages and calories are different for everyone, so one of the things we do is provide our members with a nutrition plan that is personalized for your body, food preferences, and goals.
The second component is cardiorespiratory exercise. This component is the quickest way to burn the highest number of calories in the shortest amount of time possible and exercises the most import muscle in our body, which is the heart. Training programs geared towards burning calories in the most effective way; to build your overall endurance and stamina.
The third component is resistance training. Guided workouts to build lean muscle throughout your body, and tighten & tone all of your “trouble” areas at the same time. This component is crucial for fat loss or muscle gain.
Our fourth component to achieving overall fitness is recovery. In addition to exercise, your body needs the proper amount of time to recover and repair itself. This recovery and repair process can be achieved while you are sleeping, by taking rest days, from foam rolling, stretching, yoga and even by enjoying our Hydro Massage beds after every workout.
Accountability, Motivation, Guidance
The final component is accountability, motivation, and guidance. The best thing about working at ECA is we all get to work with individuals like yourself who are serious about their fitness goals and are ready to see their bodies change. Motivation, encouragement, education, and accountability to not only help you reach your goals, but to maintain them for life.
