A growing body of academic research supports the ability of brief, intense contractions of skeletal muscle to produce far-ranging health benefits.
These equal or exceed the fitness and general health improvements conferred by conventional exercise, but in a fraction of the time and with additional health benefits.
Muscles keep us upright, pain-free and counteract the effects of gravity.
Less known is their role as an active endocrine producing organ, which influences many functions affecting our general health. If we don’t take preventive action, we lose 3 - 8% of this precious muscle mass per decade after age 25, a degenerative process which accelerates after age 50.
loss of muscle mass is not irreversible: strength training can rebuild atrophied muscles and regain the power, elegance and ease of your more youthful self.
Our approach translates cutting edge academic research into a practical, time-efficient, safe mode of exercise that produces results … fast. These are some of the benefits the average person can expect to enjoy:
- You will grow stronger and build endurance. Incrementally, you’ll notice that everything gets easier: from hefting a bag of groceries to portaging a canoe to cross-country skiing. You’ll experience a spring in your step.
- You will feel less tired. Think of your muscle mass as your ‘engine’, which gets more powerful with strength training. With a bigger engine, you will be able to carry out your usual activities with less strain on your system and have energy to spare at the end of the day.
- As you become stronger and feel more energetic, you will regain a sense of youthfulness, empowerment and confidence.
- Your muscles will become younger at a cellular level and you will experience cascading benefits to your general health.
- Your posture will improve. As a result, lower back pain and tension in your neck will diminish or disappear entirely.
