WilFit GX Pilates Classes Help Ease Chronic Back Pain

Did you know Pilates can be a great match for you if you have lower back pain? Pilates strengthens the core—the muscles that support the lower abdomen and lower back. For those with chronic lower back pain, excess motion can inflame lower back injuries. Pilates limits the body’s motion to a certain frame, strengthens the core, and thus supports the low back.

WilFit offers Pilates with its gym membership. If you are new to WilFit, and want to see what people are talking about, you can pay for one class at a time.

Pilates is a complex and effective fitness system was created by Joseph Pilates, born in Germany in 1883. His father was an award-winning Gymnast, while his mother was a Naturopath. Joseph pilates studied various physical fitness modalities from both east and west, including gymnastics and yoga.

In some ways Pilates is similar to yoga in that it focuses on flowing mat movements and breathing. But Pilates can build more strength than some forms of yoga, and keeps movements within a limited range. This is to avoid injury and overextension. Focus, efficiency of movement, and breathing are all essential parts of the practice.

WilFit offers a variety of group exercise classes like Spinning, Pilates, Dance, and Power Abs. Not to mention world class Bodybuilding Personal Training by professional coaches and bodybuilding champions.

Pilates can be a good practice to incorporate into your workout routine, a perfect balance point between strength training, flexibility, and moderate cardio.

Pilates can help strengthen the core and encourage proper neutral spine alignment, the lack of which often leads to chronic back pain.

Please don’t hesitate to ask WilFit’s Trainers & Instructors about ways to create a healthy fitness plan catered to you particular needs.

“Awesome gym!!! I’ve been looking for a gym for awhile now and found this one. Went and took a look at it and signed up immediately. Good location in mid koreatown. They validate your parking ticket up to three hours and best part of this gym is they provide workout clothes. Lots of equipment and its clean and feels good to work out there.”

Natalie S. – Los Angeles, CA

Dear Natalie, we are thrilled you finally found a gym! 

 

“WilFit is one of the best gyms that i have been to. I work close by which makes it convenient. All of the machines are well spaced out and brand new. Everything is kept clean and in case you weren’t planning on working out, they have shorts, t-shirts and towels available at all times.  All of the equipment is state of the art and very clean. Also, they have many trainers who are well qualified and work very hard to train people to their specific needs.”

J. L. – Los Angeles, CA

J.L., thanks for pointing out our Personal Trainers. They are well qualified! Some of our Certified Personal Trainers are Natural Bodybuilding Champions. Others are Nutritionists. Many are world class athletes and martial artists. HiYa!! 

“Cardio core and power abs classes are no joke! I’ve been gym shopping for……i dunno….say, 3 years? And this is by far the best gym in LA-clean, affordable and classes are all two thumbs up!”

Victoria H. – Los Angeles, CA

Victoria, your 3 year search for the perfect gym has finally paid off. You persevered. You knew that somewhere out there was the holy grail of “clean & affordable”. And your abs are looking good. Best gym in LA? We’re blushing.

 

“I prepaid for a years membership at Wilfit after testing it out for a month.  I think of it as a cross between an LA Fitness/24 Hour Fitness and a more costly gym like Equinox.  It’s a two story complex with most all the machines and weights I need.  Plus the crowd there is very zen, which is a big plus.  Ken the manager took great care of us and I felt like we got a deal.”

Chad S. – Los Angeles, CA

Here’s the thing, Chad. Those other gyms are great too. We do fancy ourselves the more affordable Equinox. We’re listed on Yelp right behind them in reviews for High End gyms. But lets not compare apple and oranges. Let’s juice them. In our Organic Juice Bar!

 

“I joined Wilfit a couple months ago and really love it! Although it is more expensive than 24 Hour Fitness, it’s totally worth it if you’re looking for a cleaner, less crowded alternative.”

Ellen S. –  Los Angeles, CA

Ellen, a lot of customers come to us asking about the price. We do have special deals if you sign up with friends or if you pay for a year. But like you, we’ve found that our rates cover the costs for cleaner facilities, better equipment, amazing classes and world class trainers.

 

“Recently relocated I bought a place in Hancock Park and was schlepping to Equinox and losing time in the a.m., decided to change the routine and become a local. This gym is perfect for me and what I require, location – locker etc. I can opt for a private locker towel service to laundry , like my old sports club L.A. …”

Patrick G. –  UNIVERSAL CTY, CA

Patrick, welcome to the neighborhood. We’re glad we’re living up to your standards. And that we’re conveniently located for you!

 

“I’ve always despised going to the gym until I came to WilFit.”

Esther Y. –  North Hills, Los Angeles, CA

That’s it, Esther. You made our day. We didn’t know it till now, but perhaps decreasing the amount of gym-despising people in the world is our higher calling.

 

“With the new year starting, I decided to start working out again. I first checked out M-Fitness (their competitor) on the west side of ktown. This place kicks M-fitness to the curb.”

Michael C. –  Los Angeles, CA

Hey, hey! Calm down, Michael. This is not a competition. We hope you’ll simply look at us as the “best gym for you”.  Maybe there is no “perfect one” out there. There are many fish in the sea. It’s just about finding that fish that you can love. And can truly love you back. We are that fish, Michael.

The Benefits of Yoga for Bodybuilders & Athletes

Can yoga and bodybuilding go together?

Yoga has been practiced for thousands of years as a way to gain control of your body’s processes and calm the mind. But you don’t have to meditate in a cave to be a yogi.

Yoga is now well known as a great way to balance out other workouts such as weight and cardio training. Even bodybuilders can enhance their training with yoga.

Many athletes know that flexibility is key to reducing injury during workouts.

In fact, many of the best athletes in the world maintain that flexibility is more important that brute strength when it comes to athletic performance.

Bodybuilders, in particular, run the risk of shortening muscles through repetitive exercises such as bench press, deadlifts, squats, shoulder presses, and more.

What’s the antidote to muscle-shortening, calcium deposits, and scar tissue buildup? Muscle-lengthening exercises such as pilates and yoga.

Bodybuilders tend to focus on certain muscles that get the most attention during bodybuilding competitions. However, they might ignore smaller important muscles that have to do with things like shoulder rotation and overall support.

You can be a world class bodybuilder and also be flexible.

Periodization is common in all sort of athletic training. The general pattern for bodybuilding is: a strength and endurance phase, strength and hypertrophy phase, power and strength phase, a peak phase, and an active recovery phase.

Yoga is great for the recovery phase. In addition some athletes stretch and do yoga after any intense workout to flush lactic acid from the muscles, and decrease soreness.

Not only is Yoga good for an athlete’s body, it can also relieve stress and cultivate relaxation—something we all need.

Los Angeles is a hub for both bodybuilding and yoga. It’s time the two world’s mutually benefit from each other. WilFit offers both yoga and bodybuilding personal training for a truly balanced fitness routine – and life.

The Skinny on Fat- Omega 3s and Fitness

Did you know not all fat is bad for you?

Personal trainers, world class athletes, and nutritionists alike know that a certain type of fat is actually good for you.

They’re called Omega 3 Fatty Acids. This naturally occurring type of fat is found in avocados, walnuts, flax seeds, and  fish, amongst other whole foods. The two main types of this fat are EPA and DHA.

Omega 3 fats are great for the brain and the heart, providing you with the right type of cholesterol (the good kind).

Why are omega 3 fats good for fitness training and bodybuilding?

Omega 3 fats have been shown to increase blood flow during workouts and can decrease post-workout muscle soreness by up to 35%. Omega 3 fats decrease swelling and quicken the muscle repair process.

Omega 3s also increase your body’s insulin sensitivity, making it easier for your muscles to burn fat, rather than store it.

 Healthy fats are a great way to fuel your workout  whether it consists of cardio or weight training.

Bodybuilders, indoor cycling buffs, and yoga/pilates fans will all benefit  from an increase in omega 3 fats.

 Sadly, most people are omega 3-deficient. Why?

In traditional times people ate more unprocessed plant-based fats. In addition, most animals (cows, sheep, goats, chickens etc.) fed on natural grass and herbs €”or small animals that were doing so. Salmon get their omega 3s from smaller algae-eating fish.

The introduction of simple animal feed derived from nutrient-lacking corn or soy actually changed the fat content of many foods we eat.

How to increase omega 3’s in your diet for enhanced fitness and bodybuilding training/recovery.

Various omega 3 supplements are on the market these days. Most are derived from fish oils, but you can also find vegetarian DHA and EPA supplements made from flax seed oil or algae.

Make sure to up your intake of avocados, walnuts, flax seeds, and blueberries. Try to go for wild salmon, cold-water fish, or grass-fed varieties of meat. You can also get omega 3-fortified eggs at most markets these days that come from.

Stop by WilFit – Koreatown Los Angeles’s best high-end gym and natural bodybuilding training facility. Talk to our Personal Trainers, many of whom have training in both nutrition and fitness.

WilFit now provides supplements that you can purchase right in the gym. And don’t forget our Organic Juice Bar, brought to you by Oppa Juicery, where you can find nutrient-dense organic juices and smoothies to fuel your workout or help with recovery.
