More Than Just a Butt Workout
Though we focus on glutes, we also train all parts of the body to bring balance to your workout routine. Bünda is a workout you can do everyday.
Building Functional Strength
- Because the glutes stabilize the lower back and knee joints, strengthening them decreases the risk of injury.
- The Bünda program has been backed by years of research.
- The daily workout classes are programmed by master level trainers.
What Goes into a Bünda Workout?
The 50 minute workout class combines the Stairmaster® and resistance training using our signature “Bünda Station“.
We love this machine so much because it is low impact but extremely metabolic. It is great for all fitness levels. Oftentimes people with knee injuries who can’t run or jump have great success on the stairs. Another great feature of the stairs is the ability to hit all 3 planes of motion. Meaning we can move laterally, front to back, and rotationally.
Moving in these 3 directions is great for the joints and for the BÜNDA!
The Bünda Station
The patented BÜNDA Station is where we do all of our strength training. The station is equipped with bands, a bench, and a slide board. Although we focus mainly on the lower body, our station is equipped for total body workouts. Strength training is KEY in any fitness program. Specifically, the concept of progressive overload. You repeat the exercise until your form is perfect, then add weight and watch your body change!
Arms, Abs and More
BÜNDA also offers arms, abs and full body classes. With proper programming and targeting different areas of your body, the BÜNDA workout is something you can do everyday.
Not a HIIT Program
HIIT training has been met with increasing popularity in the fitness class industry, but that may not necessarily be to your benefit.
Unfortunately, this type of training teaches the body to rely on sugars during a workout with minimal fat utilization. The Bünda program forces the body to burn more fat during workouts by shrinking the interval margins.
