WHAT IS SLOW TRAINING?
In a nutshell, it is moving the weights 10 seconds up and 10 seconds down continuously until you can’t push or pull any longer.
HOW LONG IS A SESSION?
Each session is 45 minutes that includes a full-body workout, and we also add massage, stretching, nutritional advice, or meditation depending on the needs of the client on that day.
WILL I LOSE WEIGHT?
Absolutely! Cardio, yoga, and Pilates all take a backseat to strength training when it comes to fat loss. The research is clear about this. As you get stronger it boosts your metabolism, making it hotter. You burn more fuel, even when resting. In concert with dietary moderation, you can lose weight dramatically.
HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO WORK OUT?
One session a week is enough to see results! We encourage our clients to do what works for them - schedule wise. 45 minutes of very slow weight training once a week is all the exercise you need to burn calories, build bone density, and stay fit. If you can squeeze in twice a week, even better. It's up to you. Come in three times a week if you want. Some people do! Once a week is the right place to start.
WILL I GAIN FLEXIBILITY?
YES! Years ago we worked with a woman named Jancee Dunn, who was writing an article for Vogue Magazine about us, and when she came in she couldn't touch her fingertips to her toes. After a few short months she was not only able to reach her toes, but she lost a few pounds, was dramatically stronger, resilient, AND flexible.
WHY SLOW TRAINING VERSUS OTHER WEIGHT TRAINING?
The benefits of Slow Exercise are many. Each time we meet we'll do full body exercise, every muscle from head to toe. A slower tempo efficiently recruits more muscle fiber, and pushing to momentary fatigue stimulates a metabolic shift in the body. The muscles grow, not bigger and bulkier, but more dense and compact. This is what shapes and tones the body getting it leaner and stronger at the same time. Our clients push quietly but intensely for one set of 8-12 repetitions. Doing fewer repetitions more intensely you will feel the results.
AM I TOO OLD TO LIFT WEIGHTS?
No! You are never too old to start. We currently work with people in their mid 80’s!!! The benefits begin immediately and continue to progressively create changes, fighting osteoporosis, diabetes, heart problems and insomnia. We have also seen great results with balancing the body during menopause. Exercise is a must during menopause. It shifts your metabolism and can prevent weight gain. Our exercise program builds strength, balance, and agility.
does exercising really make a difference?
