Welcome to New Element Training
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.
Two 30-minute net method strength training sessions per week is all your body needs
Two weekly New Element Training™ (NET) 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 preexisting physical ailment, our physiotherapist will assess you and work with you to help you getting pain-free and functional again.
world leading Exercise MACHINES
We can define exercise as a physical activity in which we move our joints and muscles against resistance in order to create short- and long-term positive physiological adaptations. It follows that if we do the movement against a meaningful resistance as close to our proper muscle-joint function as possible, our exercise will be as safe and efficient as possible. This is why at New Element Training we utilize the world’s leading bio-mechanically precise resistance training machines. NET machines not only ‘fit you like a glove’, they also continuously adjust resistance as you go. When your muscle is at a stronger position, the machine’s resistance increases; at a weaker position, it decreases.
Combined with our research-proven training method, the medical devices and the mindful approach, this makes NET one of the most effective 30-minute exercise programs available for health and quality of life.
a Strong Body 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.
Mind de-stressing effect
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.

Golfers Take Note: strength training can improve your game
Most sports put pressure on the body in ways that are not necessarily healthy, and golf is no exception. During a round of golf, your back is exposed to:
lateral deviation of the spinal column
shear forces on the spine
Of particular interest to golfers are five of our precision machines that adapt to your body:
Core lumbar strength machine
Core torso rotation machine
Core 4-way neck machine
Core ab isolator machine
Core super stretch machine
