Exercise Defined, Inc., implements the original High Intensity Training (HIT) exercise protocol developed by Ken Hutchins utilizing low friction weight machines built to precise specifications for maximum efficiency. Ken developed this SuperSlow® protocol during the Cornerstone Osteoporosis Study along with Nautilus and the University of Florida (See the History of SuperSlow for more information).
In 2006 Kameron ‘Kam’ Hutchins and his wife, Vickie, brought the exercise protocol to the community of Montgomery County. This form of one-on-one personal training ensures safety and results. At Exercise Defined, Inc., adult clients of all ages increase their strength, mobility, and fat loss using this SuperSlow® protocol in a clinically controlled environment. You will not find mirrors, “muscle-heads” or loud music – only serious individuals and trained professionals working together to achieve fitness goals efficiently and safely.
Each SuperSlow® station lasts three minutes and is practiced at a slow rate to achieve muscle fatigue. Our protocol is unlike most other workout programs which incorporate heavy weight lifting and are performed with quick and jerky repetitions. Although our training is highly intense, clients exercise comfortably within the workout area which has a controlled temperature maintained at 68 degrees. The sessions are designed in a way where clients can arrive at our facility directly from the office without a need to change into workout clothing. Within the standard protocol, professionally dressed and certified instructors ensure that any problem a client expresses is addressed while all muscle groups receive attention.
If you would like to try the SuperSlow exercise protocol system for yourself, contact us today to set up a complimentary orientation and sample workout.
Reasons to Lift at SuperSlow® Speed
1. Since safety is primarily affected by force, and force is affected by acceleration, and acceleration is induced by the suddenness of starting, stopping, or changing the direction of movement: slow acceleration indicates careful and safe exercise.
2. Since momentum mounts with increased speed, and since momentum unloads the muscles we are trying to load for exercise, slow indicates better loading; hence, better exercise occurs at a slower rate.
3. Since close study and concentration of muscular contraction is averted with faster movement, then someone who is serious about a deep and meaningful effect will move very slowly to gain maximum potential in muscular contraction.
