Strength training is the number one way to remain strong,
young, and independent well into old age.

 

How does it work?

The latest research has proven that the intensity of a workout session is the most critical aspect. It’s not how many days of the week you go to the gym or how long your workouts last, but how hard you’re willing to work. That’s how only 1-2 workout sessions a week, each under 30 minutes, can have the quickest, most effective results. Working toward momentary muscle fatigue gives the body the stimulus necessary for metabolic adaptation, stimulating muscle growth, creating stronger bones, and revving up the metabolism. The Super Slow method was created in a lab researching osteoporosis. Scientists found that the quickest way to build stronger bones was to stimulate and demand the muscles that are attached to the bones, to work. They discovered that strength training is the number one way to remain strong, young, and independent well into old age. Slow, high-intensity workouts put very little force on joints and connective tissue, which is why it's also one of the safest ways to exercise.

Results you can expect when working out slowly,
with high intensity:

  • Increased metabolism

  • Improved muscle tone and body shape

  • Greater muscular strength

  • Stronger bones

  • Improved insulin sensitivity

  • Reduced arthritic pain

  • Improved overall health and cardiovascular fitness

  • Lower risk of developing osteoporosis, diabetes or obesity

  • Utilization of fat storage

  • Improved sleep quality

Speciality Training - ParkinsonWISE Certified

All of the trainers at Fit have received ParkinsonWISE Certification by completing the Kaiser Neuroscience educational program focused on the challenges faced by people with Parkinson’s disease (PD). Exercise is one of the most effective ways of delaying and reducing symptoms of PD. Dopamine, released during exercise, is a major component of improving mobility and decreasing rigidity and tremors. It is critical to keep the body moving. Strength training and stretching, working towards full range of motion, aids in physical stability and overall wellbeing. We look forward to sharing what we know and empowering you or your loved ones through exercise.
