Welcome to New Element Training
Perhaps you are looking to increase your lean muscle tissue, get stronger, feel fitter and younger, improve your appearance and numerous markers of good health, or explore the mind-relaxing effects of NET’s mindful training approach.
Perhaps you want to get rid of lower back pain or some other nagging physical ailment.
Perhaps you find it hard to find time to take care of yourself.
We welcome you to “test-drive” and see for yourself how New Element Training (NET) is the safest, most efficient and most effective exercise concept you have ever experienced.
Based on years of University-level Research & Development
Supported by dozens of scientific studies
quiet and Mindful atmosphere
Everyone needs strength training
After the age of 25, we begin losing lean muscle tissue — somewhere between 5 to 10 lbs per decade. This leads to reduced metabolism, compromised health, reduced quality of life, and increased muscle and joint pain. Strong muscles are foundational to good health and a pain-free body that does what you need it to do, with elegance, grace and ease. Whether you are an experienced trainee or someone who needs to rebuild your strength and get back into shape, this program can be calibrated to help you reach your fitness and health goals efficiently and safely.
one or Two 30-minute net method strength training sessions per week is all your body needs
One or Two weekly NET method sessions give you the benefits of hours of conventional exercise — including improved flexibility and cardiovascular fitness — plus those associated specifically with training to Momentary Muscular Failure (MMF), a scientific term used to describe High Intensity Strength Training method.
Training to MMF offers the positive physiological adaptations no other exercise modality can match.

If you have a pre-existing physical ailment, our physiotherapist will assess you and work with you to help you to live a pain-free and functional life.
world-class Exercise MACHINES
An ideal exercise modality puts the least amount of force on our joints while producing the maximum amount of positive stimuli on our muscles. We can’t effectively exercise — and hence maintain a high quality of life — if our joints are ruined. This is why at NET we utilize the world’s leading bio-mechanically precise resistance training and rehabilitation machines. NET machines not only ‘fit us like a glove’ for the proper muscle-joint function, they also continuously adjust resistance as we go. When our muscle is at its strongest range of motion, the machine’s resistance increases; at a weaker position, it decreases.
Bio-mechanically, the function of muscle is to contract and produce movement. Muscle will respond to all sorts of stimuli (e.g., lifting rocks, body-weight exercises, machines, free-weights, etc). A machine that is designed around our human joint function is a form of safe and logical ‘barbell’.
Combined with our slow and CONTROLLED research-proven training method, the medical devices and the mindful approach, this makes NET one of the most safest and effective 30-minute exercise solutions there is.
a Strong Back Knows no pain!
Over the years our body ‘learns’ how to overcompensate with certain muscle groups, ‘forgetting’ how to engage smaller and weaker muscles. This leads to neurological and morphological atrophy of those unused muscles resulting in various physical ailments. NET's FDA-certified medical lumbar and neck extension MedX devices (learn more), and other medical-quality machines, help precisely strengthen weakened muscles and decrease or even eliminate your persistent musculoskeletal pain.
The New Element Training environment is designed to be distraction-free: there are no mirrored walls, no pounding music, no split television screens. An essential part of our training protocol is to stay fully focused on the physical work you are doing over your 30-minute session. It is a way of harnessing the power of your mind in the transformation of your body by paying attention, by maintaining perfect form to optimize your efforts, and by using precise, controlled movements to keep your body safe. Producing the all-out effort required to access and fatigue the targeted muscles in each exercise takes intense concentration.
A quiet, focused workout session can also be seen as a form of dynamic meditation and an opportunity to de-stress in the midst of a busy day. Giving your entire focus to executing each movement, one inch at a time, leaves little room to fret about other areas of your life. Practicing a non-judgemental approach to dealing with the sensations and discomfort associated with this intense effort is also good mental training that can be applied to other areas of your life.
