How It Works
The World’s Most Efficient Conditioning Workout
Slow Down and Load Up
We lift weights slowly!
We reduce the speed of each repetition to a snail’s pace, a cycle of 10 seconds up and 10 seconds down, with no rest between.
When you slow down repetitions, your muscles are forced to work harder, unable to rely on momentum to propel movement. And, because your movement is less herky-jerky, the risk of injury is reduced.
InForm Fitness is home to the Power of 10 – a high-intensity, slow motion, resistance training workout that provides an entire week’s worth of exercise in 20 minutes.
The Power of 10 philosophy is not only sound clinically but remarkably effective.
– Fulton C. Kornack, M.D., Clinical Faculty in Orthopedic Surgery, Harvard Medical School
Only five to seven exercises complete a total-body workout, when performed using our specialized equipment with one of our Power of 10 certified trainers. We guide you through each set of exercise so that the weights are lifted in slow but continuous movements, until the point at which the muscles can no longer perform. This point is called muscle failure.
It may sound easy, but rest assured – it’s not. The goal is to work the muscle to the point of complete exhaustion, by using high-intensity resistance and a focused, slow-motion technique – 10 seconds to lift the weight and 10 seconds to lower.
Our focus is on building and maintaining muscle, because, as we age, we lose lean muscle mass. Loss of lean muscle can result in obesity, diabetes, osteoporosis, chronic pain, and an alarming variety of other health problems.
Building muscle is the best way to proactively combat these problems, as well as supercharge your metabolism and increase cardiovascular endurance. If your “get up and go” has gotten up and gone, then resistance training is the way to go starting now – and the Power of 10 workout is the safest and most effective way to resistance train. You’ll see and feel the results in as little as a few weeks, but the benefits of maintaining your program will last a lifetime.
More Muscle for Less Hustle
You work one-on-one with a personal trainer to do five to seven exercises on custom-designed machines for 20 minutes just once a week. That’s how little time it takes to keep you strong and vital so that you can enjoy an active lifestyle! InForm Fitness is the ideal personal training studio for anyone who wants to get in optimal shape without putting in long and tedious hours at the gym.
After your workout, we advise a resting period of at least 4 to 7 days. During this recovery time, your body will actually build thicker and stronger muscle fibers. This concept is supported by real science and was recently noted in the Journal of Physiology among many other highly accredited publications. The recommended resting period allows your body sufficient time to recover while still burning fat. Also, your already busy schedule is gifted with more free time to live your life to the fullest and participate in the activities that bring you pleasure and joy.
