Since 2009

About Us

One-on-one, high intensity, low force exercise –  15 minutes, 2 x per week – guaranteed.

Our exercise protocol is conducted in a clinically controlled environment that is free of distractions (i.e., music, mirrors, people, etc.). All training is provided privately under the continuous supervision of a certified instructor on exercise equipment designed specifically for use in the scientific protocol.

The workout itself involves performing both positive and negative aspects of each repetition in approximately 10 seconds, eliminating acceleration and momentum (the cause of most strength training injuries). This constant loading of the targeted musculature causes muscle failure to occur quickly and safely, triggering the desired adaptive response of maximum results in minimum time – guaranteed!

Make a Change

 Goal Achievement

Our training team helps you define your individual fitness goals and then creates a roadmap to get you there safely, in minimum time. We take into account your current fitness level and discusses what you specifically want to achieve. We help you focus on smaller goals that are specific and realistic; they’re more attainable, setting you up to achieve the larger, more audacious goal. Your trainer also helps assess your progress toward those goals and will hold you accountable.

Personalized Workout

At Lift, we create a specific workout plan just for you based on the goals you want to achieve. This isn’t a one-size-fits-all workout routine you’d find in a book or magazine. The personalized plan is tailored to your goals, needs, and allowances for your current physical condition and medical background. We make accommodations to your program if you have an injury, bad back or knees, or have specific medical issues such as RA, MS, and Osteoporosis for example.

Instruction

Our professional trainers teach the proper way to perform each exercise movement in you will preform. She demonstrates the movement, coaches you through it, and corrects any issues with your posture or technique. Learning how to perform exercises properly reduces your risk of injury and increases the movement’s efficacy. When you perform exercise movements the right way, it increases your results and guarantees safety.

Motivation

Motivation is often difficult to maintain when you exercise on your own. Regular sessions with your trainer create accountability, which is a real motivator to not let down yourself or coach. But there’s also something to be said for feeding that part of our brain that craves praise. Hearing a trainer celebrate your consistency, progress, or even proper technique can be a real boost when you feel like throwing in the towel.

Accountability

If you lack commitment, self-motivation, or just the ability to kick your own self in the pants, your trainer is the key to getting your new fitness routine off the ground. When you exercise on your own, it is easier to skip a session here and there or fall off the wagon completely since there’s no one to hold you to your actions. When you work with a trainer you’re far more likely to show up and do the work.

Variety

If your workouts have previously felt complacent, our experienced trainers ensure you won’t be bored. We teach a variety of safe lifting techniques on high end machines as to keep your muscles guessing. Our trainers also help you to make adjustments as your fitness level improves to ensure continued progress; so you won’t plateau or feel stuck in the same old routine.

Efficiency

Our experienced personal trainers will make the most of your workout time, which increases the efficiency of your exercise program. This is especially beneficial when you have a limited amount of time to exercise. We are masters at optimizing every minute spent in the gym to get the biggest burn for your buck. Successful people value their time and know that it is one of most precious commodities we have along with the ability to live long, strong and active lives that are free from injury and illness.

Our Facility

PRIVATE

At Lift we have completely private training rooms which provides the ideal environment for going beyond your comfort zone. As your body gets stronger, it requires a progressively greater exercise stimulus. This challenge must be gradual and systematic and done with great focus and mental toughness. 

PROFESSIONAL

All of our training staff is highly educated, professional and very encouraging and supportive of your personal journey of obtaining and maintaining ideal health and fitness. 

SAFE

Lift provides a controlled environment which ensures maximum results and the ultimate safety. Your trainer is watching and monitoring every move you make. We track and record all exercise preformed. Safety is our greatest priority next to results. 

CLEAN

Good ventilation and cool, dry air enables intense effort which contributes to focus and determination. We provide changing rooms, water and an extremely clean and germ free environment.

What About Cardio? Don't I need to take care of my heart and lungs?

Cardiovascular conditioning is achieved with your LIFT workouts!  Strength training performed with adequate resistance and intensity - little to no rest between machines - the demand on the cardiovascular system provides significant stimulation for improved cardiovascular efficiency.  The cardiovascular system supports muscular work by supplying oxygen and nutrients to and removing metabolic wastes from working muscles during physically demanding activities. Cardiovascular improvement allows more physical activity with less fatigue.  Strength training at LIFT is safer and more efficient, providing better cardiovascular conditioning than traditional aerobic activities.

I am out of shape or have physical limitations, is this safe for me?

Absolutely!  Our Certified LIFT instructors know how to safely work with individuals with limitations or past injuries.  At LIFT our training rooms are private and distraction-free.  One-on-one exercises performed at LIFT are scientifically based and extremely safe.  At LIFT our focus is always on you.  Your goals are your instructor's goals, to see results!

Will I get bulky and muscle bound by lifting such heavy weights?

No, looking like a body builder is not possible for the majority of people.  Even with the rare genetics needed to be overly muscle-bound, a huge percentage of body builders have used steroids to become that way.  You will look and feel stronger, but you will not "bulk" up.  Your genetics will dictate how your body looks when building muscle.

Do I need to stretch or warm up before i train?

Stretching is overrated and warming up happens on the first machine.  If you are concerned about injury, don't be.  99.9% of injury occurs during a quick motion, at LIFT we move in slow motion, so injury is highly unlikely.  The studies done on our training protocol showed less injuries and greater muscular and bone strength than any other exercise protocol.

I am very active with other physically demanding activities, will this hurt or hinder my abilities?

No, most competitive athletes strength train to enhance their strength set so they can have a smaller work load on the body while performing the competitve sport.  The stronger you are, the easier it is for your body to perform activities.  We do suggest putting your extra-curricular activities as close to or on the same day as you strength train to allow for more recovery in between.

How can only two lift workouts per week provide the results i desire?

These workouts are intentionally focused and highly efficient.  They are designed to bring various muscle groups to total fatigue resulting in stimulation and improved muscular strength - the key to helping you achieve and maintain your desired results.  Body-shaping muscle enhances your shape by adding firmness and increasing your metabolic rate, which in turn helps you to lose body fat.  Allow your body at least 2 to 3 days rest and proper nutrition to fully recover.  This combination provides the best results, leaving time for your to do things you love.  The LIFT workout is so effective, our slogan is - "Minutes a Week, Strong for Life."

What Kind of results should i expect?

At LIFT we focus on physical fitness that relates to all sports.  

Results you may expect are:

  • Improved muscular strength, endurance and stamina
  • Cardiovascular efficiency
  • Increased range of joint motion (flexibility)
  • Better body composition and decreased fat
  • Bone density increase
  • Joint stability - resistance to injury
will working out at lift help increase my bone density?

The technique used at LIFT was founded during Osteoporosis research.  Numerous research studies have proven that progressive resistance exercises revers bone loss, decrease bone turnover, increase femur bone mineral density, and maintain body composition.  LIFT offers the most effective resistance training programs with top of the line equipment used in producing these results.

I want to work out more than just twice a week, what can i add to speed up my results?

You can do nothing other than eat clean to speed up your results.  Recovery is a vital part of this exercise program!  If you feel like you could do more in-between workouts you should increase your efforts during the workout here.  Exercise is like medicine; it has a precise dose for a desired result.  Twice a week is all that needed to get the results you desire.  We don't take extra medicine than the dose we are prescribed and the same is true here.  There are 100s of studies backing up the training philosophy you'll experience here at LIFT.
