private Training Rooms

Because we value privacy, safety and results, our facility is designed with all private training rooms to give you the ability to train with greater effort with out others watching, interfering or breaking the focus needed for safe, effective training sessions.

personal nutrition

At Lift, we utilize a nutrition program that guides you through important—yet sustainable—changes in your eating and lifestyle with help from an expert coach. This is not an “eat this, not that” diet or fad. We help you impliment changes in behavior that assist with fat loss, muscle gain and long term success at keeping the weight off. 

one-on-one training

One-On-One means private, concise and just plain better. Our intimate, friendly workout facility has trainers who care about your personal goals and develop a relationship with you so that you can reach your fitness goals in mininum time. Being comfortable during exercise is very important to the success and safety of training. We are the only private one on one training facility in the area. 

competition Prep

The owner of Lift personal training and nutrition coaches clients who want to compete through exercise and nutrition to help them become stage ready. She has proven through experience that Lifts training and nutrition methods can help clients achieve ideal placing in the bodybuilding arena. Shaun set out to prove that training to failure 3 x a week with no cardio is the correct and only exercise needed for ideal fat loss and lean body sculpting. During her first run at bikini, she placed first overall and took home the sword. The proof is always in the pudding. 

Start where you are

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 who had osteoporosis. Very quickly it was determined that our training protocol is not only safe but can be applied universally to people of nearly any age and fitness level. Our technique utilizes machines designed specifically for muscle and joint function allowing us to lift  heavier weight loads for brief periods of time which provides safe, timely results.

Descriminant Fat Loss

Because you will be building muscle and changing your eating habits at the same time, most of the weight you lose will be fat. In other programs that focus simply on dieting and aerobic exercise, you also lose muscle, which lowers your metabolism. Our method will help you build muscle, increase your metabolism, and lose fat while staying strong and healthy.

Metabolic Conditioning

Caloric control addresses body leanness, but building stronger muscles through proper muscle building exercise increases basal metabolism significantly. 

Golf Fit

The golf swing for the “long game”, especially when shot distance is one of the key elements, is reliant on an extremely high velocity, high force, “explosive” movement. This means we need to be able to produce a lot of force in a short period of time, similar to jumping, throwing and hitting athletes. Our complex training provides increased strength and power for golfers at any level, allowing for a higher club head speed which allows for greater distance drives.

Strong and limber

Feeling better is a strong motivation for many of our clients. That can mean having more energy throughout the day, fewer aches and pains or just being able to play with the kids or grandkids after work. While the details are usually different for every client, the results are usually the same—becoming stronger, healthier, and more energetic. Our program has helped many of our clients feel better in many ways so they can enjoy life.

Wedding prep

Whether you just got engaged or are choosing vendors to book, flower arrangements to pick, and cake samples to taste (hey, somebody’s gotta do it), one thing’s for sure: ramping up your fitness level before the big day isn’t just about looking your best, but feeling your best for that big walk (okay, strut) down the aisle. 

Athlete enhancement

We offer individual training through our clinical program and group training through our ground-based camps or team training. All of our Performance Training programs offer a holistic, comprehensive, integrated and evidence-based approach of physical training, nutrition, mental skills training and athletic health.

Your First session is on Us

Scientific exercise involves focus, preparation and the ability to push past our normal tendency of flight and fight. Team Lift invites you to come in and go through an exercise session so you can see and feel first hand why our scientific exercise protocol works so well at creating ideal body composition and overal health and fitness. 

SUPER SLOW TECHNIQUE

IT’S A SCIENCE 

Founded on the scientific understanding that exercise is not a mere feeling of pain, an adrenaline rush or pushing your body beyond its comfort zone. Scientific 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 medical grade exercise machines that have been retrofitted to remove friction and mimic the body’s strength curves. All of our exercise equipment track muscle and joint function allowing to lift heavier weights for minimum time gaining maximum results.

Training To Failure

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 trainer nearby coaching you and monitoring form and speed you will be breaking down muscle fibers which signals the body to regenerate stronger and leaner muscle and thus create a variety of responses and creating massive benefits on the body.

Keeping it Brief

Every workout will last a maximum of 15 minutes and we train 1 or 2 x per week. We prescribe the minimum amount of exercise needed to produce maximum adaption or results. Anything beyond that  limits the ability to recover and adapt. 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 recovery 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.

 Accountabity

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 weekly workouts, you don’t have to worry about making time to attain and keep the strong, healthy body you’ve always wanted.

Thanks for the December Challenge – check in for your workouts twice a week, eat clean- maintain or lose weight! Shaun is great at cheering you on as you lift more weight! She also holds you accountable!! Great way to spend 15 minutes!

LORILEI BRANDENBURG

I have been working out with Shaun for 2 1/2 years and love it! It’s quick, efficient, it’s hard, a good cardio too! At 60+ years old, I am strong. Strength training isn’t just for youngsters, it’s important at any age for your overall health. It’s hard to imagine how it makes you feel in just 15 minutes twice a week, until you experience it. I highly recommend this one on one training to everyone! Thank you Shaun!

LORI PETERS

I have been doing LIFT for about a year now. I love the fact that it is only 15 minutes twice per week. It’s hard to come up with a good excuse to skip a 15 minute workout. You would think that such a short duration would have minimal effect on the body, but it’s quite the opposite. The super slow reps result in a very intense experience and I leave feeling like I’ve worked out for an hour every time. Shaun and her team do a great job making sure you are pushed to the limit, use good form, and have fun at the same time. If you are looking for an effective workout program with minimal time commitment, LIFT is the real deal.

FAQ’s

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.
