Eat The Right Foods

There are a multitude of foods that are great to indulge in, but check out these highly suggested food items that should be stored in your fridge after these hard hitting workouts.

Protein shakes, yogurt and fresh fruit, peanut butter, whole grain bread, fish and red meat are options.

Fluids. Fluids. Fluids.

It’s  necessary to rehydrate after an intense workout. Hydration is important for one’s health and can also be helpful to burn more calories during a workout.Water is the best choice to rehydrate but if you have to have something else try sports drinks, vitamin water,  fruit juice or vegetable juice.

Stretch Your Muscles

Even the most serious athletes forget to prioritize stretching into their post workout routine. It is very common to believe that stretching is key in only the pre workout routine but this is false. Stretching is also a very important part of the post workout routine. Stretching can help, prevent next day muscle soreness and fatigue, prevent future injury and calms nerves and relax the mind.

"Just received the 3.2 update - outstanding!"

I really like the 3D effect for the Mitts and Sparring. Curious as to what would be involved to have the new center strike pad that is new with the N3.

"The best workout I have ever had"

I downloaded the update yesterday, let me tell you it's the best workout I have ever had. It's fun - like working out with a trainer. And the sensors are so much better, I don't have any problem with them. Thank you!

"We have had some real positive feedback from our members..."

We have regulars that use it here on a daily basis. It’s a great alternative to a cardio and strength workout plus, it’s not boring and keeps you motivated. We encourage all our members to give it a go!

"Having the Nexersys on campus has gone over great..."

The students have seen it on TV, on YouTube and in the magazines and are ready to make it a regular part of their fitness routine. We are super happy with our Nexersys and I expect we’ll have to get another one.

"Love coming in and using the Nexersys..."

My son, Jaxon, and I love coming into the Northeast Family YMCA and using the Nexersys. I teach group fitness classes at the YMCA so it is important to me that my son stays active and leads a healthy lifestyle.

"This machine is AWESOME..."

I have trained with some of the worlds best coaches. This machine is AWESOME. I get the best of both worlds. It increases your agility, power, and cardio. The cardio segment really works the hard to reach muscles and the abdominal routine is insane. I have yet to find a better machine or exercise to do high Intensity Interval Training on. This machine is everything it says it is and more.
