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.
