Train Anyone, Anywhere in the World.

If someone wanted to become healthier today, what would be one tip to get them started?

Everyone should have a goal when they set out to become healthier. It is much easier to understand where to go, and what you need to do to get there when you have a destination. Set your goal and take steps towards it every day.

What are the most popular styles of exercises at Peak?

At Peak, clients utilize unorthodox devices such as Sleds, Power Plates, Woodway Force Treadmills, Keiser Equipment, Kettlebells, and Olympic lifting platforms as well as more traditional weight training and cardio circuits.

What is the best way to recover from working out?

The best training can be rendered useless if you don’t give your body time to recover. One of the most effective strategies to assist recovery is improving your quantity and quality of sleep.

Not only should you shoot for about seven to nine hours a night, but try to establish a pattern and stick to it. Improving your sleep will certainly improve your recovery and capacity to train hard, helping you get the results you are after.
