About 1-2-3 Fit

Research has shown the 123fit circuit training program is one of the most efficient full-body workouts. In just 30 minutes, the 123fit it workout combines cardio, strength and resistance training. This fast-paced workout allows for higher energy expenditure, thus burning more calories.

“The 123fit circuit training program addresses the top reason that individuals do not maintain active lifestyles—a perceived lack of time,” said Dr. Cedric X. Bryant, chief science officer for the American Council on Exercise. “By blending aerobic and strength training, the program meets the recommended minimum threshold for physical activity to enhance the overall health and wellness of individuals. In addition, the workout offers a wide workout intensity range, which appeals to both men and women, and the group environment provides motivation for individuals and enhances program adherence.”

The 123fit circuit training program is highly effective for all body types. 123fit has also been recently recognized by ACE, the American Council on Exercise. “The 123fit mission has always been to provide an effective and safe workout in a comfortable, non-intimidating environment, and now we have the proof,” said Weaver. “The goal is just to stay active. The more active we are, the better we feel, and the quicker we will reach our health and fitness goals”.
