What’s a Brick/BRIK?
>The term “Brick” comes from triathlon training. Triathletes implement “Bricks” in their training routine, meaning doing two different workouts one after another with little or no rest. Think about “stacking bricks” – for example, a 10 mile bike ride followed by a 3 mile run.
>At Kaia, our BRIK is an intense, 6-week program where we workout 5 days a week. We implement plyometrics, yoga/Kaia Flow and running. This constantly keeps your muscles surprised and working towards strength, flexibility and speed!
Whether you’ve been at Kaia for a year or this is your very first session, it’s normal to be nervous. It’s a new journey with new goals, hopes and fears. But you’ve already done the hard part- you’ve committed! So come in on Monday prepared and determined to make this the absolute best start to 2012!!
1. Read the manual. Not only will it get you pumped up for your first week, but you’ll be in the loop on Kaia terms and what is expected of you for this 6-week program.
2. Supplies. You should have your own: yoga mat, jump rope, resistance band, good workout shoes and supportive sports bra. (Keep your yoga mat, jump rope and resistance band in your trunk so you always have it for class if it’s needed that day!)
3. Facebook & kaiafitsacramento.com. Become our friend on Facebook so you can stay up to date on what’s going on! Plus, we love posting photos from workouts, you might just see yourself on our page! Also, subscribe to this blog by putting your e-mail address in on the right side of the page. You will be notified every time there is a new post!
4. The first day. Come a few minutes early to mingle with other girls and sign a release form (if it’s your first Kaia class). There will be an orientation; but don’t worry, we will still get a workout in!!
