The solution for STAYING fit

Welcome to Commit to be Fit 2.0. What began as a fully online diet and fitness program during COVID-19 has evolved along with the latest advances in exercise science, human performance, sport psychology and wellness. Our goal then and now is to help you improve your health and fitness so that you can live your best life.

Before beginning this, or any workout, you should consult with your physician.

TRACK Your Progress

Accountability helps you stay focused. There are two ways to track your progress.

  • At the Fitness Center front desk, get a Commit to Be Fit 2.0 Punch card. Have it punched for every workout you complete. Turn your card in and pick up a new one each month.

  • Use your favorite apps to track your progress and then report it here on the Fitness Log (below).

Building your own workout!

Read the US Government suggested guidelines (Click to Expand)
  • 150 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise per week (30 minutes on each of five days).
  • This program is built around three workouts a week.

If you're just beginning your fitness journey, start slowly and gradually add more time and intensity:

  • Start with 25-35 minute workouts that include a warm-up (to get your heart rate up) and a cool-down (to bring your heart rate down).
  • During any workout, you should always be able to hold a conversation. If you cannot, slow it down.

You choose your reps and sets by your level of fitness. Always begin with the lowest level of repetition and add to it as you master the exercise.

  • Reps refer to how many times you repeat an exercise (8 - 10 reps to start)
  • Sets are groups of exercise reps (3 - 5 sets of 8 - 10 reps to start)

But take it slow and listen to your body.

Understanding your level of fitness is important. It will help you to avoid injury and to progress to more intense exercise. The real difference between one level and the next is experience, knowledge, intensity, and time spent achieving fitness goals. Understanding your body and how it performs exercises is how you are able to progress.

Please, review the following for your fitness level and be sure to always take it slow and steady.

Good Technique

  • Stand tall
  • Chin level
  • Look ahead of you (not down at your feet)
  • Chest-up
  • Shoulders back and down  (not hunched under your ears)
  • Toes straight ahead

Always Breathe

Breathing helps you through any activity. It helps to keep your blood pressure in the normal range.

  • Exhale on the lift, push or pull (through the mouth)
  • Inhale on the release (through the nose)

Counting your reps helps you to keep breathing. You can't hold your breath when you are talking.

Resting Between Sets

Recovery is important as you workout. The more advanced your workout the more important your recovery time.

  • If your goal is to tone, lose weight or increase endurance, rest 20 - 60 seconds between sets.
  • If your goal is to build strength, rest 2-5 minutes between sets.
