What’s New at Sapp Fitness?

Fitness

We are redefining our style, and we want you to be as excited as we are!

We are going to take the best aspects of cardiovascular training, and fuse them with the best of resistance training, for a workout unlike anything you’ve ever experienced!

CARDIO STRENGTH TRAINING

Cardio Strength Training is a non-traditional approach to training that utilizes the most beneficial aspects of cardiovascular training and resistance training to maximize results, and minimize the time it takes to achieve them. We are refining our current approach and will be using various forms of interval strength training including the revolutionary Tabata Protocol. Intense interval training can raise your metabolic rate to 15 times it is at rest, known as your BMR and it can also help boost your metabolic rate for 24 hours after completion. It increases both your aerobic capacity, and your anaerobic capacity, meaning an increase in stamina in both high and low intensity situations. Most importantly, it makes workouts more efficient, in as little as 4 minutes we can achieve the same cardio results as 60 minutes of low intensity steady pace cardio (treadmill, elliptical, bike)

HEART RATE TRAINING

Heart Rate Training revolves around the individual clients heart rate zones, and focusing on keeping them between 60-80% of their maximal heart rate (known as the fat burning zone). We start by finding your resting heart rate and calculating your maximal heart rate. Using these numbers we let your heart rate tell us what we need to know from there, when to kick up the tempo, when to maintain intensity, and when to dial it back a bit. It helps us avoid overtraining, allows a great way to monitor your progress, and you will be able to push yourself to new limits, all while seeing happen before your eyes!

The program will consist of an initial assessment, the establishment of short-term 30-day and long-term 90-day goals for all group members and a personalized exercise plan to make sure everyone reaches his/her goals.

Functional Training

Forrest Gump put it best, “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get.”  Never is this more true than when it comes to those nagging little injuries, sore joints and muscles we all get. Insert functional training. What exactly is functional training? For the most part functional training is training the body to be prepared for real world situations. Mimicking  a wide variety of events, from walking up stairs, to carrying things, and even standing up and sitting down with control. This is achieved through various body weight, balance and coordination manipulation, training both the big muscles, but also and more importantly, it trains the smaller muscles, the stabilizer muscles. Strengthening these stabilizers can be the difference between regaining your balance and tumbling to the ground after an unexpected slip. Functional training is there to help make your everyday life as pain free as possible.

Boxing/MMA Fitness

If there’s one thing that ties all boxers/mma fighters together (other than a penchant for black eyes) it is their killer physiques. It’s not that they are training to look that way, but rather they look that way as a by-product of their training. High intensity bouts with short rest periods, and a focus on core are the building blocks for this training style, and are useful and beneficial to anyone looking to kick their training up a notch, or looking to get a different style of workout to shake things up. We have highly skilled trainers with backgrounds in both training and competitive fighting, who are here to give everyone a safe, challenging workout experience. Good for all skill and fitness levels.

Weight Management And Nutrition

Fitness

We’re proud to offer an all-inclusive diet and weight-loss program designed to take out all the guess work, and take off the maximum number of pounds!

It starts with an initial screening, where we will discuss everything from past injuries to family health history and personal goals as well. After that we will go right into the assessment phase.

Using our state of the art SappFitness Metabolic Cart, equipped with clinical quality tools, we’ll measure your weight, body fat %, body girth, BMI, blood pressure, and resting metabolic rate (RMR).

We’ll then input this information it into our proprietary dietary system, DietMaster Pro and we’ll generate custom meal plans, complete with shopping lists!  Then it’s ‘simply’ a matter of following the plan, working hard, and watching the pounds melt away!

Body Composition

One of the key features of the SappFitness Metabolic Cart is our Tanita body composition analyzer. Tanita’s TBF-300A utilizes patented “foot-to-foot” BIA technology (Bio-electrical Impedance Analysis) to make determining internal body composition a fast and accurate procedure. While most other professional scales rely on inexpensive mechanical levers and springs that may wear out quickly, Tanita’s weighing system consists of a “motionless” block of solid metal known as a “Single-Point Load Cell.”

To you, this means better accuracy. It is accurate to 1/10% on body fat measurements. In addition to using the Tanita scale we will also use a tape measure to get girth measurements on the waist, hips, and arms amongst other locations. We also take a measurement of your resting blood pressure to complete the body composition.

Resting Metabolic Rate

The other part of the SappFitness Metabolic Cart is our RMR tester, the MetaCheck by Korr. The MetaCheck is a specialized tool for determining your personal RMR.

What is RMR?
RMR, resting metabolic rate, is the minimum number of calories your body burns throughout the day. If you were to do nothing but lay in a bed for 24 hours, it is the number of calories required for you to do the most basic things; breathing, maintaining body temperature…etc. It calculates this by determining how efficiently your body uses oxygen from inhale to exhale. The test itself is literally as easy as sitting around doing nothing, you just sit/lay in a relaxed position and exhale into the breathing tube for 10 minutes while the machine does the calculating. After the 10 minutes are up we have your personal RMR.

Diet Masters Pro

All the measurements get put to use in this final step of the process. Our diet software, DietMaster Pro, is all inclusive. We start by creating your custom profile, and then enter the data we measured; weight, body fat %, RMR. Using this data we can construct an entire meal plan, including a shopping list! The best thing about DietMaster Pro software is that all meals and grocery lists are designed by Registered Dietitions, and can be specified for any dietary/health related needs, ie diabetes, hypertension, allergies, or even just a dislike for a certain type of food!

When we combine these 3 crucial elements we give the oppurtunity maximize results and minimize headaches. At the end of our assessment you will walk away with your new meal plan and grocery list, but that is just the beginning of the journey.

Throughout the entire process you will have the support of the SappFitness team, whether you are looking for advice, need changes to your meal plan, or just need someone to tell you to kick it into gear!

My Favorite Things – Kitty Lagareta

For Kitty Lagareta, president and CEO of Communications Pacific, many of her passions revolve around Kailua, where she’s lived for 18 years.

Hawaii Business
Several years ago, Louise Ing wanted to get in shape. But the flashy athletic club scene made her uncomfortable, and she was a little intimidated by guys with big muscles. So what did the prominent, petite attorney do? She joined Gold’s Gym, a Spartan haven for Honolulu’s muscle-bound, and started lifting weights with Arnold Schwarzenegger’s old workout partner’, Mike Sapp.

Talk about grabbing the bull by the horns.

Sapp is actually Ing’s personal trainer. He meets with her at the crack of dawn three times a week for an hour of stretching, cardio training and stone good, old-fashioned weight training. Under Sapp’s guidance, Ing has dropped about eight pounds, and, more importantly, is more toned, fit and energetic. The fifty-something attorney has literally turned hack her Body clock, testing out at a “fitness age” (a measure of strength, flexibility and endurance) of 33.

A 30-year veteran of the gym scene, who trained with Arnold Schwarzenegger in the ’70s, Sapp is now the scourge and salvation of high-powered professionals around Honolulu. Sapp sees himself not only as a personal trainer, but as a lifestyle coach. “I look for the things that have caused setbacks in the past, the speed bumps like stress levels and diet,” he says. “There is no greater joy than changing someone who has been totally deconditioned. I take that as a challenge.”
