What Is It?

     

What is The Perfect Workout?

The Perfect Workout provides one-on-one personal training at our private fitness training studios in California and Texas, each equipped with state-of-the-art exercise machines and equipment. Our expert personal trainers specialize in a unique slow-motion method of strength training which helps people achieve maximum fitness benefits from just two 20-minute training sessions per week. This special exercise method involves performing the lifting phase of each weightlifting repetition in approximately 10 seconds, and performing the lowering phase of each repetition in approximately 10 seconds. Once a person learns how to perform the movements effectively, enough resistance is used so that deep muscular fatigue is achieved within 1 to 2 minutes on each exercise.

Slowing the lifting speed reduces momentum on each repetition, and loads the muscles more effectively. This makes the exercise both harder and more productive. Several studies have shown that The Perfect Workout’s specialized slow-motion strength training produces approximately 50% more improvement than regular weight training. 1,2 And what that means for you is greater strength, enhanced body shape, more endurance, improved metabolism, stronger bones, and more.

The Perfect Workout is appropriate for people of any age and any level of fitness. Our certified personal trainers have worked with everyone from 13-year-olds to 98-year-olds, and beginning exercisers to elite athletes. Having said that, the people most often attracted to our unique approach are:

  • Beginners who are new to strength training and want to learn how to exercise effectively and safely
  • People who prefer a private and personal workout environment with state-of-the-art equipment
  • People who don’t want to spend any extra time exercising beyond what’s needed to get terrific fitness

The Perfect Workout’s unique exercise approach can add to your life in a number of ways.

Studies show that slow-motion strength training produces approximately 50% more improvement than regular weight training.1,2 And it takes just 20 minutes, twice a week to produce such fantastic results.

 

Remodel and Reshape Your Body

Adults who don’t strength train lose an average of a half pound of lean muscle tissue each year starting at age 25. 3,4 As an example, a typical 55-year-old woman will have 15 pounds less lean muscle (and significantly more fat) than what she had at age 25. Muscle takes up less space than fat, so this typical 55-year-old woman has arms and thighs that are softer and less firm, wears a larger clothing size, and has a slower metabolism that burns fewer calories each day.5

Effective strength training reverses this decline. It increases your body’s metabolism, causing you to burn more fat and calories all day long, even while sleeping. Strength training reshapes and tones your legs and arms. And if you follow an effective nutrition plan at the same time, your faster metabolism will help give you a smaller waist, slimmer thighs, and reduced hips. Adding muscle and losing fat will make your body firmer, smaller, and more shapely.6

 

Greater Health

Slow-motion strength training not only improves your appearance, but your health too. Effective strength training can:

  • Increase Bone Density7 (we have clients who have reversed their osteoporosis)
  • Improve Cholesterol Levels 8,9,10 (some slow-motion strength training subjects double their “good” HDL cholesterol)
  • Lower Blood Pressure 11,12
  • Reduce Low Back Pain 13

 

More Fun

By getting stronger, you’ll experience less effort in your everyday activities (like carrying groceries or walking up the stairs), as well as greater prowess and enjoyment at anything you do for fun (like golfing, skiing, or playing with your kids or grandkids).

Overall, you’ll gain energy and self confidence. And you’ll be “in and out” in no time – all it takes is 20 minutes, twice a week.
