Nex Level Programming
Our group fitness programs at Nex Level each consist of a dynamic blend of training styles, offering a more effective, diverse, and scientific approach to your fitness. Developed and delivered by industry experts, our hugely-popular programs focus on enhancing strength, conditioning, mobility, and endurance. Our head strength & conditioning coach has a decade full of knowledge in working with some of Australia’s top junior prospects in the professional sports arena and wanted to share his knowledge with the general population.
Here at Nex Level, you don’t simply join a fitness program; you join a community. A community where your results aren’t the only reward; where support is crucial, sweat is the currency for your hard work, little bit of pain is essential, and enjoying the best version of yourself is only natural.
GPP (General Physical Preparedness)
Essentially, your readiness to handle the stresses of intense workouts or actual competitions is based on your body’s ability to perform while developing and managing fatigue. GPP-type workouts are designed to improve your overall fitness, strength, stability, speed, mobility, and flexibility. Typically, the exercises chosen will include full body movements, which strengthen all major muscle groups and joints. Isolation-type exercises can also be performed to strengthen weak muscles — this is also a great time to perform any form of rehabilitation-type exercises for previous injuries.
Think of GPP training as creating a well-balanced and developed body ready for anything. The higher your fitness level, the more you can handle. The higher your work capacity, the faster you can recover. The higher your strength, the more force you can produce. The lower your body fat percentage, the better your metabolism. These results are commonly the goals of the general population, whether they workout or not. Your competition is with yourself and your life. Strive for continuous improvement in the gym and your life. With the obesity epidemic only worsening, your challenge is to NOT lead a sedentary lifestyle. If everyone could improve their GPP, way more people would be leaner and healthier. You don’t need to play a sport to improve your GPP — do it to improve your quality of life.
BUILD LEAN MUSCLE AT OUR TRAINING FACILITY:
Ready to build some strength and muscle? Our Strength Training programs are designed to produce hypertrophy (muscle building), Strength building in (percentage), power development and Strength Endurance. These workouts are no walk in the park—they are periodised and utilise our proprietary 5-Star Training Programs.
Our strength program is guaranteed to produce results. Our fitness training facility offers the community, accountability, and proven process you need to soar past your goals. Whether you’re a novice or a pro, man or a woman, strength knows no age or gender.
The strength component will run through a number of phases:
Strength (building a strong base)
Power (developing from your STR base)
Strength Endurance (increasing your overall capacity formed by the previous STR/PWR -blocks) This means squatting in all forms, pressing, deadlifting, and all accessory movements that come along with a solid program.
ESD (Energy System Development)
Energy System Development (ESD) sessions are comprised of interval work on the ski/rower/bike/running. This works in conjunction with the strength (STR) cycle to increase power, speed and VO2 Max. Program cycle varies in blocks of 4 – 6 weeks, emphasising on all the three energy systems Anaerobic A-Lactic (ATP-CP) Energy System, Anaerobic Lactic (Glycolytic) Energy System and the Aerobic Energy System.
This means improving your overall work capacity, enabling you to work harder and stronger, whilst improving your ability to recover from extended work.
I.W.T (Interval Weight Training)
Interval Weight Training (IWT) is intense interval work utilising a combination of athletic lifts and free aerobic exercises. The cross training of athletic type lifting for full range strength and free exercises for anaerobic power, has a major impact on developing explosive power endurance, and can also be great for torching some unwanted body fat. This type of work utilises a greater percentage of the body’s muscle mass, both slow and fast twitch fibres. The high intensity work places added energy demands on the respiratory, cardiovascular and nervous systems, meaning that more fat and glycogen is burned to support the increased energy demands before, during, and after exercise.
The post exercise oxygen consumption of this type of exercise will leave your metabolism revved up and burning calories long after the session has finished.
