History of the SuperSlow® Exercise Protocol
In May of 2012, the City of Conroe mayor and city council honored one of Conroe’s own, Ken Hutchins, by declaring May 12 “Ken Hutchins Day.” It was an award well deserved. Hutchins, who is also a professional trumpet player, is a familiar name throughout the fitness industry, is widely known for his osteoporosis research. His world famous SuperSlow® Exercise protocol is available in Conroe at Exercise Defined®. Exercise Defined, Inc.® is a post-rehab facility.
History of Exercise Defined, Inc.®
In his upstairs bedroom – converted to a weight room – Ken began exercise training his younger brother, Kam, in 1968 when Kam was seven years old. By the age of 14, Kam knew that someday he wanted to open an exercise facility. Exercise Defined, Inc.® now offers his brother’s highly acclaimed SuperSlow® Exercise protocol. In 2006, Kam and his wife, Vickie, both educators in Conroe ISD, opened the first SuperSlow® facility in the greater Houston area. Exercise Defined, Inc.® became a Texas corporation in August 2005 and was trademarked by the United States Patent and Trademark Office in November 2005.
The definition of exercise:
“Exercise is a process whereby the body performs work of a demanding nature, in accordance with muscle and joint function, within the constraints of safety, meaningfully loading the muscular structures to inroad their strength levels to stimulate a growth mechanism within minimum time.” Kam explains to his clients.
“We have clients who have successfully lost weight because their bodies’ metabolism has shifted into overdrive with the addition of muscle,” Kam explains. He further added, “And we have had frail folks who initially have entered our doors with the use of walkers and canes and after a while they find they no longer need the aids.”
Unlike other workout programs which incorporate weight lifting, and are performed with quick and jerky repetitions, each SuperSlow station lasts three minutes and is practiced at a slow rate. Although the training is highly intense, clients can exercise comfortably in the workout area which has temperature maintained at 68 degrees. In fact, many clients arrive at our facility directly from the office and without a bag full of workout clothing.
