The Change Fitness Philosophy
Change the way you think about fitness. Total health doesn't have to come at the cost of several hours of exercise a day, several days a week.
The Change Fitness workout out is a high intensity workout for a short period of time designed to stimulate your muscles to build strength, flexibility and increase stamina.
The two factors that have been proven to stimulate muscle growth are progressive muscle overload and metabolic fatigue. The Change Fitness method provides both factors without the increased risk of injury. In fact, this method is proven to decrease the occurrence of injury from workout, and the muscle mass you gain will decrease your risk in the long term.
Will The Change Fitness Work For You?
Are you between the ages of 12 and 103?
Have you been warned by your doctor that you need to increase muscle mass to help with bone density loss?
Have you struggled to maintain your current workout regiment because of time constraints?
Are you not getting the results you want despite how often you workout?
Do you want fast results?
If you answered yes to any of questions above, then The Change Fitness is right for you. Stop struggling for results and make the change now.
What is The Change Fitness Philosophy Based On?
At The Change Fitness studio, our philosophy is based on years of scientifuc studies and research results that have proven that the system really works.The following is a list of the Top Ten benefits of strength training training that form the foundation of The Change Fitness Method. Leading experts in exercise physiology have dedicated their careers to the following research:
Strength training prevents muscle loss and reductions in metabolic rates.
Strength building exercises maintain muscle mass and physical strength. Endurance training increases cardiovascular fitness, but does not assist in increasing muscle mass. Metabolic rate is affected by the activity of muscle tissue. Muscle loss is a prime factor in a reduced metabolic rate. (Forbes 1976, Evans and Rosenberg 1992)
Continued participation in strength training increases muscle mass ans metabolic rates.
Continued participation in strength training increases muscle mass and metabolic rates
Overcoming the period of inactivity and the resultant muscle loss, the body begins to build additional muscle, which results in an even higher and more efficient metabolic rate. (Keyes et al. 1973, Evans and Rosenberg 1992)
Increased muscle mass and higher metabolic rate combine to burn more calroies throughout the day, reducing the accumulation of fat. (Campbell st al. 1994)
Increases bone mineral density
The benefits of continued strength training on bone density are similar to those on muscle mass. The same catalyst that encourages muscle myopproteins to reproduce also encourages bone osteoproteins and oncreases mineral content. (Campbell at al. 1994)
Improves glucose metabolism for prevention of adult onset type II Diabetes
Poor glucose metabolism is directly associated with adult onset diabetes. Studies have shown significant increases in glucose metabolism during participation in regular strength training exercises. (Hurley 1994)
Increases Gastrointestinal transit time
Delayed gastro intestinal transit is a high-risk factor for colon cancer. A 56 percent increase in transit time has been seen as early as 3 months of strength training. (Koffler 1992)
Reduces resting blood pressure
After only 2 months of combined strength and aerobic training, participants have shown a marked drop in both systolic and diastolic readings. (Koffler 1992)
Improves blood lipid levels
Participants in strength training exercises have also shown improved blood lipid counts within weeks of beginning a program. (Stone et al. 1982, Hurley et al. 1988)
Reduces low back pain
Increasing strength in your lower back muscles reduces the opportunity for injury. Patients who suffer back pain and begin a program of lumbar-specific strength training have shown significantly less back pain after just 10 weeks. (Risch 1993)
Reduces arthritic pain
Strength training has been discovered to reduce the effects of rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, according to a 1994 Tufts University Diet and Nutrition Letter.
