The ultimate fitness solution for busy executives

When you work 50+ hours a week, fitting regular exercise into your routine can be a challenge.

But what if your exercise routine was only 30 minutes, twice a week? And what if this workout included the added benefits of mindfulness meditation?

New Element Training invites busy executive/professionals/lawyers to try our fitness system to maximize benefits to physical and mental resilience – without spending too much valuable downtime at the gym.

“When strength training is done properly, it produces a cascade of health benefits,” says New Element Training Founder, Andrei Yakovenko. “By maintaining healthy muscle and joints as we age, we are more energetic and more confident, suffering less stiffness and pain. Our methodology also includes elements of mindfulness meditation and our focus on the somatic experience will have you leaving the gym feeling mentally capable and physically strong.”

At New Element Training’s downtown Toronto facility (439 University Avenue), whole body-mind strength training is offered, using German-made, medical grade equipment of the highest calibre. By ensuring correct form, their equipment minimizes pressure on joints, while sufficiently fatiguing muscles to trigger positive results in one hour a week.

“New Element Training is an excellent gym and training plan for busy people,” says lawyer client Greg Zambrzycki. “Significant and gratifying results with a minimal investment of time. Plus, the emphasis on mindfulness is helpful for pretty much anyone in today's busy world.”

New Element Training is the fitness solution lawyers, executives and other busy professionals who haven’t got time to waste, but understand the importance of physical and mental health when it comes to the quality of their work and the quality of their lives.

Busy executives, lawyers and other time-strapped professionals are welcome to reach out for a free session.

Founder Andrei Yakovenko is available for interviews and free strength training sessions for members of the media. Experience his unique methodology for yourself and marvel at why you didn’t discover the wellness revolution sooner.

Want to be a supermouse? NAD, Sirtuins and longevity

Leading researchers in the field of longevity from MIT and Harvard have identified several anti-aging genes, which produce proteins called sirtuins. In simpler organisms and animals, these genes protect organisms from deterioration. They also reverse age-related mitochondrial deterioration (mitochrondria help produce energy within your cells), help facilitate mitochondrial biogenesis (process by which cells increase mitochondrial mass), and prolong life. Basically, once these genes are activated, they can increase an organism's health and lifespan.

Focus on the muscle before the movement: a lesson from neuroscience

Why is prioritizing correct muscle/s recruitment more important than focusing on the movement itself? If we primarily focus on the movement we will likely be under-working the targeted muscle groups more often than we think. On the other hand, giving more priority to the muscles we are trying to target will result not only in more superior training effect ­- it will also re-wire your brain, literally.

Andrei on Corporate Warrior Podcast: NET's story and why training mindfully

Recently, Andrei spoke on the Corporate Warrior podcast, which is the leading podcast on the subject of High Intensity Strength Training lifestyle and business.

A Transformative Experience

Recently, I had a chance to experience what it means to be fully alive in a way that most of us have long forgotten. This happened during a five-day facilitator training workshop with Philip Shepherd.* A deep dive into his pattern-dissolving exercises triggered cascading insights that reconnected me with a self that had been long-buried.

The transformation I experienced was at a non-verbal level, so it is difficult to convey the experience with words. It was simply paradigm shifting. As the week progressed, I came to realize that each day was bringing so many changes that I would emerge a different person from the Andrei who entered the program.

Goals set the direction, but the focus is on the journey.

Our philosophy at New Element Training is that the process of moving towards your vision is more important than the actual goal. If you value your final goal over the process of achieving it, you will feel frustration, anxiety or even anger at every setback. The resulting stress will diminish the quality of what you are doing, and you may feel frustrated enough to give up your exercise routine altogether.
