Muscular Strength, Flexibility, Endurance, Aerobic Power
What is the SlowBurn Method?
SlowBurn is a form of weight lifting that uses very slow, smooth, and controlled lifting and lowering movements rather than the typical high force, explosive lifting seen in most gyms and training studios.
It is very similar to the way the gentle yet powerful martial art Tai Chi is performed. There are no sudden, explosive or highly abrupt movements that can potentially cause injury. Every exercise is performed in a controlled and focused fashion. Research indicates that this method produces equal to and greater benefits than traditional lifting methods.
The SlowBurn personal training method not only improves your muscular strength, but your flexibility, endurance, aerobic power and your metabolic rate. All in just 30 minutes a week.
All of our instructors teach the SlowBurn method exclusively.
Why Choose SlowBurn Personal Training?
In a word, efficiency.
You've heard it all before. You've been told by your doctor and every media outlet on the planet that you need to exercise for at least 30-60 minutes everyday. You are told to do weights, cardio and stretch to see results.
However, using our SlowBurn system of resistance training changes the playing field. SlowBurn personal training allows for maximum benefits in minimum time. This is achievable due to the deep level of physiological stimulation that SlowBurn exercise provides. You'll become stronger, more flexible, and improve endurance all in just two thirty minute workouts a week.
We have been using the SlowBurn technique exclusively for 16 years at our current location and have conducted thousands of personal training sessions with people just like you with tremendous success.

If you're not actively making yourself stronger, you're actively getting weaker.
What's important to understand is that, beginning around age 30; we all slowly but surely lose muscle, bone, endurance, and strength unless we do something about. Science reveals that strength training is the most effective and efficient form of exercise to halt and reverse this loss. While it is certainly true that other forms of exercise like Pilates, Yoga, swimming or cycling certainly provide health benefits, research reveals that these activites can't reverse (let alone improve) muscle and bone nearly as well as a sound strength training program. Interesting, right? Not only does science reveal that strength training is the best form of exercise to restore lost lean tissue, strength training is also shown to provide every other health benefit we require – cardio, flexibility and all. It's an all-in-one exercise program!
Maximum Strength Gains, Improved Activity and Increased Metabolism
Your added strength also will allow you to enjoy and perform your beloved activities, whatever they may be, for longer, with greater ease and with less chance of injury. Yoga poses will be easier. Your tennis serve will be more powerful. You'll be able to do the toughest moves in Pilates. And your golf drive – forget about it. And that heavy bag of kitty litter – it will feel like a joke. SlowBurn exercise stimulates positive adaptations to every aspect of your body including flexibility, the cardiovascular system and resting metabolic rate. This means you burn more energy at rest which contributes to leanness.
Less Exercise, Better Results
Once stimulated, the body needs time, roughly 48-96 hours, to produce maximal benefits. Science indicates that if the quality of an exercise program is high, 1-2 sessions a week of strength training is more than adequate to cause optimal positive results. Remember, exercise itself doesn't make you fit or healthy. Your body becomes healthier and fitter if the exercise stimulus is adequate and if adequate rest and recovery is allowed for. So not only do you not need to exercise on your days off, you shouldn't! Quality, not quantity, is where it's at.
Maximum and Permanent Fat Loss
Fat loss is what you really want. Fat loss is different from weight loss alone. Weight loss is not really what you want because weight loss can result from muscle and bone loss as well as fat. You want to lose fat only and build bone and muscle at the same time. And this is what our personal training program will do for you.
SlowBurn strength training along with our real food, normal carb diet will ensure that the weight you lose comes only from fat. While SlowBurn strength training contributes to fat loss, the specific types of foods you eat are the number one factor in losing (or gaining) fat. We'll teach you everything you need to know about eating the correct foods (not counting calories) to maximize improvements in your health which will result in steady and permanent fat loss.
