A 10 Minute High Intensity Workout lasts only 1/6 of a lunch hour! It’s the average time it takes to check and reply to your emails! The time it takes to walk 10 New York City blocks! With such short time commitment anyone can do it!
“Countless studies have shown that the most commonly cited reason for not exercising is a “lack of time.”… However, there is a growing appreciate of the potential for intense, interval-based training to stimulate improvements in health and fitness in a range of populations”
“Data suggest that a low frequency, high intensity approach to training is associated with a greater long-term-adherence as compared with a high frequency, low intensity approach.”- Martin Gibala, PhD, chairman of the Department of Kinesiology, McMaster University, Ontario, Canada.
Our bodies are naturally lazy. That may sound like a bad thing, but when you think about the amount of energy our ancestors had to burn stalking, spearing, and dragging home an antelope – or running from a hungry lion – it makes sense that our bodies evolved to conserve energy. In other words, we’re naturally inclined to take the path of least resistance. We choose to walk rather than run. We choose to sit rather than stand. When a hiker goes missing in the mountains, rescuers simply need to focus on the areas where the walking is easiest, and they will almost always find them!
The challenge – and the advantage – of the Naturally Intense 10-
That’s how you burn the most body fat, build the most muscle and get stronger and the key to accomplishing that goal is to choose exercises that are so demanding that you’d rather not do them and to perform those exercises in ways that make you want to stop as soon as possible.
If that sounds counterintuitive, it is.
However, the people who get the best results from their training are the ones who choose the most taxing exercises.
How does the average man or woman increase their training intensity high enough each time to get the most out of a workout?
Answer: By training at high intensity for SHORT periods of time and if the workout only lasts 10 minutes, anyone can do it!
For most people, the thought of doing set after set of exercise in the gym for an hour or more 5 to 6 times a week makes their toes curl.
But with Naturally Intense High intensity Training, you spend only a few minutes doing any one exercise- as that’s all you will need! The focus is on compound movements that work several muscles at once and we implement a variety of high-intensity training principles to get the most out of each exercise, but in a way that ensures that you never get injured!
Yes, it’s hard, but the point of high-intensity training is that as hard as it may be, it’s doable, and nearly anyone, regardless of fitness level, can do it – and do it well.
Besides its short duration, the fact that it’s only 3 times a week (you’ll need the rest) – and the long-term promise of a stronger, healthier and better looking you – there’s another powerful motivator that will get you through your Naturally Intense 10-Minute Workout:
You see results fast.
In as little as 2 weeks you’ll see the changes in your body. You might not expect it but there are few things more exhilarating than really pushing yourself physically.
Most of our clients are exceptionally busy men and women who all said they could not have achieved their fitness goals with a conventional program that required a significant time commitment given their hectic schedules.
And that the intense but tolerably short nature of the workouts being the reason they stuck with it longer than any other program they tried.
