Circuit Training 101 with Jason W.

Getting bored of your current fitness routine? Try mixing it up with a circuit workout in the Wellbeats Circuits channel. These quick, power-packed classes feature movements to blast calories, ignite your metabolism and, most importantly, can be completed in under 20 minutes.

What exactly is “circuit training”? A circuit is a series of exercises where a user is encouraged to perform as many repetitions as possible (AMRAP) with minimal rest in-between each exercise.

Jason Wilsey, fitness professional featured in several Wellbeats Circuits classes, shares his #1 tip for anyone trying out a circuit class for the first time:

“Focus on form first, and speed second. Starting with good form keeps you safe and provides the best outcome at any level of intensity.”

With each circuit, you are in control of how much you want to push yourself. Each Wellbeats circuit includes bulleted instructions on screen along with verbal cues to help guide you and ensure proper form throughout the entirety of an exercise.

“The movements provide the framework, and you decide the pace,” explains Jason. “You will experience a workout that fits your level of comfort and current mental and physical state.”

Wondering if a circuit workout is right for you? Jason explains how any individual could benefit from this engaging style of workout.

“With step-by-step instructions, there is no fitness-level prerequisite,” says Jason. “Anyone who wants more from their workout in less time, active travelers that need to take their workouts on the road, or those simply needing a shakeup from a workout plateau can benefit from a circuit workout.”

Not all circuits are one in the same. With Wellbeats, you can find classes that are tailored towards your personal workout goals, including options for:

  • HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training)
  • Fat Burn
  • Total Body
  • Lower Body
  • Upper Body

“It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or advanced,” says Jason. “You will get stronger.”
