Founded on the scientific understanding that exercise is not a mere feeling of pain, an adrenalin rush or pushing your body beyond its comfort zone. Exercise is an act that produces great results, in minimum time within the constraints of safety. Our protocol was initially developed by a team of doctors who were given the task to work with patients with osteoporosis. Very quickly it was determined that this training protocol was not only safe but could be applied universally to people of nearly any age, health and fitness level or personal goal. Our technique involves custom machines designed specifically for muscle and joint function that you will very slowly lift heavier weights for minimum time gaining maximum results.
In order for your body to respond with muscular growth, you have to stimulate your muscles forcing them to make an adaptive change. Intensity is very high and momentary muscular failure is the goal. By training very, very slowly with your personal instructor nearby coaching you and watching you to keep you in the constraints of safety, you will be breaking down your muscle fibers which signals the body to regenerate stronger and leaner muscles and thus do a variety of other benefits to the body.
Every workout will last a maximum of 15 minutes and we train no more than 2x per week. We prescribe the minimum amount of exercise needed to produce maximum adaption or results. Anything beyond that actually consumes our time and ability to recover and adapt. Utilizing our protocol has a very high intensity threshold which consumes a huge amount of our bodies resources. In order to let your muscles, grow, you have to give the body the time and rest required to do so. If you don’t give the body adequate rest and recovery, you are just re-breaking the muscle fibers that are in the process of making strong adaptations towards growth.
Keeping accurate records of your workout performances gives us the ability to guarantee results. When we know if the variables of intensity, duration and frequency are being done appropriately, we can ensure you are gaining precious muscle and gaining all the benefits from our program. Also, knowing ahead of time you are scheduled for your bi-weekly workouts, you don’t have to worry about making time to attain and keep the body you’ve always wanted.
I started LIFT several years ago after battling an illness for 3 years that left me very weak. Shaun understood my desire to get my strength back, while also being careful not to have major setbacks from doing too much too quickly. As a business owner with two young children at home, 15 min twice a week was a miracle to say the least!! Within a year, I had gained all of my strength back and felt strong and healthy. In November, I decided to go out on a limb and train for a bikini competition - something I would never have imagined I would have the energy to do a few years ago! Shaun pushes me incredibly hard now 3 times a week, and we added the nutritional component as well, which has been amazing! In the last two months, I have lost 10 pounds, several inches, all while increasing strength where I need it - 100% bicep curls, 75% abdominal, 66% leg extension etc.
Shaun and her team have been instrumental to me in gaining my life back, and I am so excited to see what else we can do together! If you want a serious workout and serious results, LIFT is the perfect solution!Shannon Redel Pottratz

When you meaningfully load the muscles on machines designed to protect your joints, moving extremely slowly your muscles are the only part of your body working. This is highly safe and was built around how our bodies work and are designed. This is science, pure and simple. Are you ready to reap the benefits of this technique?
