Your body adapts to the stresses imposed upon it. When you exercise at the proper intensity your body’s defense mechanism kicks in and forces the body to become stronger. Because of the intense nature of these workouts, they need to be brief and infrequent to allow for recovery and growth. The best way to understand how this is possible is to experience how challenging and yet satisfying this way of working out can be. If you commit regularly, we guarantee you will become significantly stronger and will never look at exercise in the same way again.
You can expect to see strength gains in as little as two weeks. However, results like muscle mass and visibility, fat loss and agility will take longer and will depend upon your commitment and genetics. That being said, we have had many men add 10-15 lbs of muscle in 3 months or less, while losing fat at the same time. Like most things in life, the more you put into it the more you will get out of it. If you consistently show up each week, well rested, well nourished, recovered, and challenge yourself at each session, you will set yourself up for the best results possible for your unique genetic potential.
The truth is, no exercise program can out perform a bad diet. The workouts you perform here will burn the maximum amount of calories your body can safely utilize in the allotted time. Additionally, due to what we call “after burn” it will continue to burn calories for up to 72 hours after you have completed your workout. That being said, the real value of exercise, in the weight loss regime, is to protect and enhance muscle tissue while you are losing weight. almost all diets will work in the short run, but protecting and enhancing muscle tissue is one of the best ways to prevent the weight gain rebound that is so typically seen. Additionally, our certified nutrition coaches can assist you in choosing a nutritional plan that is right for you and that will be sustainable for a life time.

Physical activity every day is great whether it be walking, yoga, sports or anything else that gets the body moving and puts a smile on your face. In fact as you get more fit you will be more likely to want to be more active. Be aware, there is a big difference between sports/physical activities and productive exercise. It is smart to avoid a “more is better” mentality. Unfortunately, it is common to associate exercise with burning a lot of calories and losing fat. It is no wonder when people want to lose fat they ramp up their activity levels and go on a strict diet. Albeit popular, this approach will actually produce a lot of stressors for out adoptive capabilities and put the body in a constant state of chronic stress (not to mention increased appetite). As a result, metabolism will eventually adapt and slow down, cortisol levels will rise, and the body will become a perfect environment for hanging on to stored body fat. If you eat for health and train for strength, all your specific health goals will start to fall into place naturally.
