Personal Health Fitness is a private personal training studio located in the heart of downtown Ottawa. We offer a private atmosphere to help you reach your fitness goals, one-on-one, without the distractions that you find in other gyms. The studio has a variety of fitness tools including free weights, kettlebells, a squat rack/olympic bar, and bumper plates, a cable system, TRX suspension training, and other stability equipment. For your convenience, we also offer shower facilities, a wireless Bose speaker system to play your own music, and a wall mounted TV.
Originating in Russia, kettlebells are used to perform ballistic exercises that combine cardiovascular, strength and flexibility training. They have been shown to significantly improve strength, power, and endurance (Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, January 2010), and burn 272 calories in only 20 minutes. Simply put, the kettlebell might be the most efficient exercise tool out there right now.
High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is a form of conditioning that keeps your heart rate elevated for the duration of the workout. By limiting the amount of rest you would normally take in between sets, this type of training builds both muscular strength and endurance, while also improving your aerobic and anaerobic capacities. It’s an ideal choice for someone looking to lose weight and get stronger at the same time!
