Know how to properly and effectively warm up before a workout.
Understand the importance of a good cool down, and how to execute one that fits their goals.


  • Clear your ability to do physical activity with your doctor before beginning.


We all hear about how important it is to warm up, so many of us just assume that we do a few stretches and shake out the limbs a little bit and then our bodies are ready. Well, no, that's not good enough. What does a good warm up do?

  • Elevate the heart rate and prepare the heart to pump blood to the muscles

  • Lubricate the joints

  • Prepare the muscles, tendons, and ligaments to work

  • Warm the body so that it is more responsive to training

So, then how should you warm up? That's what I'm going to show you ;-)

Once you've properly warmed up, then you are ready to attack your workout and reach your fitness goals!

Great workout! Now, it's time to cool down. But how?

  • Allow the heart rate to normalize

  • Promote blood flow to and from muscles

  • Take advantage of a warm body to increase flexibility

So, then how should you cool down? That's what I'm going to show you ;-)

Come warm up and then Train with TMax, and then cooldown!
