Everyone reaches a plateau during his or her journey to fitness. In order to grow and progress in your fitness regimen you need to reinvent your workout and keep your body guessing.


WAYMO epitomizes this approach, drawing from a variety of disciplines and incorporating them into vigorous and efficiently productive workouts.


Cross-training and programs similar to WAYMO are becoming more and more popular in the military, sports, and many areas of the fitness industry. So what’s all the hype about? Check out some of the benefits of WAYMO and cross-training programs:



When you perform a variety of exercises from different disciplines, you are asking more of your body than with a traditional, straight-forward workout. When you expand your exercises you expand your capabilities. Cross-training workouts aren’t tailored to a single goal, such as gaining strength or getting faster, they work to achieve all of these needs simultaneously. With cross-training, it’s possible to gain muscle, lose fat, increase cardio-aerobic capacity and improve coordination all in a single workout. This comprehensive style of fitness training is called conditioning


Reduced risk of injury

Often when people get injured in the gym or playing a sport, it’s due to over doing a single activity.
Repetitive movement will strain and wear on your joints, ligaments, muscles and tendons. That’s why it’s important to change up your exercise and activity to give these overworked muscles a break. By mixing up your routine you give the over-used parts of your body a chance to rest and the under-used a chance to strengthen and catch-up, to reduce the risk of injury.


Greater likelihood of sticking with it

Research shows that people often drop out of their exercise programs because they become bored, injured or stop seeing results. WAYMO provides a different workout for each level every week, so it keeps you and your body guessing. This not only prevents you from getting bored with your workout routine but it also helps you push through your plateau to continue to see results. When people continue to see results they are more likely to stick with their fitness regimen.

4 Things You Need to Know When You Begin WAYMO


WAYMO is one of our most popular programs to get in the best shape your life! Members love it because it is strategically designed to produce results, and there is a workout for every level.


Thinking about signing up for WAYMO? We’ve list 4 things you need to know when you begin.


1. It’s okay to ask questions or for clarification.

If you don’t understand how you are supposed to perform a specific workout or lift then don’t hesitate to ask. The trainers are eager to help and make sure every participant is doing each movement correctly to prevent injury.


2. Don’t be afraid to scale down.

It’s okay if you need assistance or lighter weights to get through the workout. If you can’t do a pull-up without assistance or if you need to modify a workout, that’s okay too. Our trainers and WAYMO members know that everyone starts at a different level. The goal is to improve with each session. Eventually you’ll get to a point where you won’t need assistance or modification at all.


3. You are only competing against yourself.

While some people like to have fun and see if they can beat their friend’s time, the purpose of WAYMO is to advance each individual to their next level of fitness and performance. WAYMO coaches will teach you to move smarter and more efficiently while keeping the workouts safe and fun! It’s all about reaching your own fitness goals.


4. You will form lasting friendships.


WAYMO is a small group training program. You may not know anyone when you begin, but after a few weeks of continuous workouts you will begin to form a camaraderie with others in your group. There’s nothing like the bond of getting through an intense workout!
