Getting Started with a Versaclimber & Rise Nation
For those who understand how important exercise is to overall health, let me introduce the VersaClimber and Rise Nation. The VersaClimber is praised for being the safest, most effective, and efficient exercise machine on the market. It engages the entire body and promotes muscle strength and stability. The VersaClimber works your arms, legs, back, glutes, core muscles, heart, and lungs in one simple to learn exercise routine. Rise Nation classes are so successful and so well liked that celebrities and exercise enthusiasts make it part of their fitness routine.
What Beginners Can Expect from a VersaClimber Workout
The first time people see the VersaClimber they don’t know what to think. Some people wonder how to use it and where to start. But in reality, once you learn how to utilize the machine, it really couldn’t be any simpler to use. You walk up to the VersaClimber, adjust the hand peg height, put your hands on the pegs, put your feet in the slots, and start climbing. If you’ve ever seen someone climbing a mountain, you already know how the VersaClimber works. Push down on one leg and up on the opposite peg in your hand, then do the same with the other leg and hand. It really is that easy!
When you use the machine, you are not limited to how little or how much you move your arms and legs. You can move them up and down a little, or extend them at maximum length. In order to make the machine as comfortable as possible, the user is able to adjust the pegs to match their own stride.
Beginners tend to use the VersaClimber conservatively, then as their comfort and physical fitness levels improve they increase stride length and speed with the goal of improving cardiovascular health. Exercise enthusiasts like the VersaClimber because it allows them to engage all their muscles at the same time, forcing their bodies to burn calories more quickly than other exercise machines. As we know, burning calories also equates to keeping our bodies lean. Since the VersaClimber is low-impact, it also helps to minimize injuries.
The VersaClimber has a digital display which helps you keep track of important workout stats. Some of the stats include elapsed time; steps per minute; total steps; distance; and more. It is easy to keep track of your progress simply by looking at the screen. All you need to do is exercise at the pace you choose and monitor the screen to check your progress.
What Should Beginners Bring to Class?
Preparing for a VersaClimber class isn’t as difficult as you might imagine. During the class, you will be burning a lot of energy and losing water through sweat. So it is important to eat healthily and stay hydrated. Within an hour before class, be sure to eat a small meal or a healthy snack. It’s also very important that you stay well hydrated throughout the workout. Bring a bottle of water with you and don’t forget to refill it at the water refill station before your workout begins.
What you wear to the class is also important. Make sure you wear relatively snug fitting clothing such as shorts, tank tops or t-shirt, or athletic leggings. Comfortable athletic shoes and socks are also recommended. You want to be comfortable, as loose-fitting clothes will just make your workout more difficult.
Why Rise Nation is So Popular
Rise Nation has been so well received by exercise enthusiasts for many reasons. Rise Nation’s 30-minute high-intensity full-body interval training workout was designed by Jason Walsh, a training and movement expert. The workout allows you to get an intense workout, and maximize results, in the shortest amount of time. One of the benefits for exercise enthusiasts, at all levels, is the groups setting of classes. That is because exercise enthusiasts tend to feel more motivated when they are surrounded by like-minded people. Finally, Rise Nation provides three levels of class instruction, from beginners to advanced level, with instructors who know what fitness is all about.
