Elite-level gymnastics coach shares conditioning tips for elevating everyday fitness

FORT COLLINS, Colo., Aug. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Gymnasts are known for their mastery of strength, grace and flexibility– skills coveted by athletes across many disciplines. As fitness lovers soak up the final weeks of summer workouts, Kyle Kirkpatrick, former elite gymnastics coach and founder of the active lifestyle brand Decibullz®, offers some tips on getting into shape like a pro.

Here are some gymnastics training tips that anyone can try out:

  1. Weight to Hands: To get that famous gymnast upper body, choose workouts in which you are completely supported by your arms. One of Kirkpatrick's favorites is the Incline Pushup: A seemingly normal pushup, however with your feet supported on a raised surface.
  2. Low-Impact Exercises: Repetitive pounding on joints can lead to injury, so in gymnastics soft mats and foam pits are used to reduce the intensity of impacts. Save the rough stuff for your weekend adventures and try switching out runs for swimming, cycling, or even walking on a treadmill set to a steep incline. You will get your heart pumping without pounding on your ankles, hips and knees.
  3. Get In Gear: In order to fully reap the rewards of no-limits workouts, find gear that was built for fitness to ensure maximum preparedness for extreme sweat and a variety of weather conditions. The Decibullz Contour, for example, was field-tested by extreme athletes and is endorsed by a fan club of athletes who excel when they're able to listen to the music they love, while doing the activities they love.

Unlike other "customizable" headphones, the Decibullz Contour is made of easy to mold thermoplastic, which perfectly shapes to fit each and every ear. Additional features like impressive sound and bass response, in-line remote and microphone, tangle-resistant cords and a hardshell carrying case make the Contour the best choice for fitness headphones. Contrary to other custom earphones on the market, Decibullz come with an attractive $59 price point.

About Decibullz: Fitness professional and avid mobile device user, Kyle Kirkpatrick, was frustrated with headphones that wouldn't stay in, sounded awful or hurt his ears. He decided to create an affordable, comfortable and snug-fitting headphone system to fit his active Colorado lifestyle.
